Because every girl needs a little bling!

Because every girl needs a little bling!

I choose handmade for lots of reasons. When I buy handmade, I am supporting small business and wonderfully talented artisans. Handmade products are superior to mass produced and more personal too. Handmade artisans make me feel unique and special rather than just another body buying another whatchamacallit. It is a more personal experience buying handmade.

Color and Unique Designs

When I was in my 20′s I traveled to the Balkans and was blown away by the colors of the clothing and jewelry. When I got back to the States I started embroidering blouses and began experimenting with jewelry. About 10 years ago I took a class in wire wrapping and decided this was what I wanted to do. As the years have gone by I’ve developed my own style and am constantly looking for new ways to use the wire and have started looking for new materials to wrap.

I always ask people what inspires them to craft, but today I have to say that Kathryn has inspired me.

Thank you so much for sharing your story, and inspiring others to follow in your footsteps to recovery. All the best!

Celebrating a Fabric Love Affair

As always, I love reading the little tidbits you all put into the odd-n-ends section of the featured crafter applications.

Janet included this disclaimer with hers – “I just got up and am only on my first cup of coffee so I hope my answers made sense. I’m kind of bleary eyed so I don’t want to edit to death or I will never send this. :)”

Don’t worry the answers are PERFECT!

Healing Reiki Charged Crystal Jewelry

I recently made two Reiki charged healing bracelets for wisdom, clarity and intuition. The bracelets are a combination of freshwater pearls, pink moonstone and clear quartz beads. Mostly I like the colors together! I also made them into two separate bracelets so that you could wear them together or individually.

One-of-a-Kind Amigurumi Dolls

I get inspired by colour combinations, by things that happen during the day, by things I read in books. I am part of the Etsy Plush Team and that also helps with inspiration – we have team challenges and seeing other people’s amazing work always inspires me to work harder and try something new.
