Designer Spotlight: Sandra Fettingis


Thanks to rock and roll designers like Steven Shein of Lee Riot, acrylic jewelry–think plastic rainbows, guns, and guitars hanging from necklaces and earrings–now has an edgy reputation. But Denver-based artist Sandra Fettingis refuses to let acrylic knock class. With a background in digital illustration and portraiture, Fettingis cuts Victorian-style cameos and clean geometric shapes from acrylic sheets to create a stylishly playful look for her affordable earrings and necklaces ($24-$30). Her technique–which she references in her brand name, “Handmade. On a Computer”–requires that she sketches her designs digitally before they are laser-cut into acrylic. Find her modern pieces across town at MCA Denver, Composition, and the Fabric Lab. MCA Denver, 1485 Delgany St., 303-298-7554 Composition, 7180 W.
