SIX Great Etsy Shops!!

So since I slacked on the features last week I figured I'd play catch up and do six in one post today!! The first shop for this mega-feature is...

Elizabeth offers unique, high quality, handknit clothing for babies and adults. She has some very warm and cozy items in her shop, but one of my favorites is this amazing little hoodie for an infant. It has a zipper in the back!! How awesome is that! I don't think that I've ever seen a hoodie with a back zipper, but I love the idea! Plus this color is just so vibrant, how could you not like it? It is called "Blueberry Hoodie."

The next amazing shop for today is called......

This shop is full of great vintage items, as well as some wonderful handmade items. One of my favorite items in this shop is a vintage print called "My First Dance" by Maud Humphrey Bogart. It would be so cute in a little girl's room.

#3 is beberagz!!

This shop gets me SO excited for my little girl to arrive! This shop has so many adorable little crocheted hats and things. I had a very hard time picking just one picture to post, but finally decided on this little beauty called "Reanna."

Katie is a very talented fellow jewelry designer. She has some absolutely beautiful pieces of jewerly for sale in her shop. One of my favorites are these fun dangle earrings called "Crystal Earth Dangles."

#5 is Chantelle Nicole Designs!!

Chantelle is yet another amazing jewelry designer on etsy! She has some great sterling silver and copper hand-stamped jewelry in her shop. One of my favorites is called the "Tree of Growth Name Necklace." I love the simplicity of all of her designs.

And last but not least for today is......


This shop is filled with great fiber creations as well as some awesome soaps and lipbalms. As with all of these shops today, I have several favorites from this shop, but I've decided to include this very warm and cozy scarf called "Fiery Popcorn Scarf."

So that's it for today's feature! Hope you like these shops and go check out their other items!!

Three Fellow Jewelry Designers

There are tons of amazing jewelry designers on etsy, it's crazy! Here are three great ones! The first one I want to feature actually doesn't sell on etsy anymore, but has her own website called Jewelry byTara. She has some great vintage pieces! Here is a little about her in her own words:

"Tara Van Stelle is a Southern California Based Artist. She holds a certificate in antiques/vintage appraisal, and enjoys mixing the vintage and contemporary in her handcrafted designs. Hoping to inspire you with her altered art pendants, and other unique and unusual creations."

Here is a picture of one of my favorite items on her site. It's called "The Beauty of a Dragon Fly."

The next shop that I want to tell you about is called Elegance for You. She makes some gorgeous jewelry at great prices! Here is a little about this artist and her products:

"I have been creating jewelry for over three years. My goal is to make beautiful and affordable fashionable trendy jewelry,at a price that every woman can afford.
I like to use sterling silver and 14kt filled gold wire. I love to mix it up. In my designs you will see a variety of beads my personal favorites are precious gemstones, crystals,and I love vintage beads. I have never met a bead that I didn't love."

One of my favorites of her's is called "Delicate Peach." They are a pair of gorgeous earrings! Here's a picture:

The last shop for today is called Serrelynda's Enchantment. She uses lots of great vintage pieces in her work, and turns them into beautiful jewelry. Here is what the artist says about herself and her work:

"I am currently a stay at home mom to a 4 year old and a Sharpei dog. My husband has been kind enough to share a piece of his garage with me by setting up my own drill press, bench grinder, and studio kiln. I have been "playing" with jewelry design for over 12 years, and also collecting vintage materials. I have been perfecting my techniques and taking classes to better my designs, and I have finally reached a point where I am ready to share my creations with the world instead of keeping everything or giving them as gifts. It is a joy to see my creations being worn and looking beautiful."

I love this bracelet called "Bronze Filigree With Scallop Shell Cuff Bracelet." It is just gorgeous, take a look!

That's it for today! Check out all of these amazing shops, and stay tuned for more coming soon!!

I'm Back!!

Talk about missing in action!! I think everyone has probably forgotten about me by now!! Anyways for those of you who are still around I am greatful! I think everyone goes through times in life where you get burnt out, and that's exactly what happened to me! But I'm motivated again and am back to jewelry making! Woohoo! So I've decided to set a goal to post at least once a week on this blog so keep looking, and if it's been awhile, leave me a comment and remind me of my goal! Anyways I'll keep this one short but will be adding more later!
