Well, folks, my blogging vacation turned out to be a bit longer than I had intended... Our internet has been flaky all week, so I haven't been able to get online to post. My apologies. Hope you haven't missed me too much. ;)
Of course, I haven't been able to do my usual browsing around Etsy either, so I'm going to skip today's feature and do a bit of gushing instead. All of these folks not only have great shops; they're also just awesome people.
Like ellesbeads. Elle makes jewelry that's very beautiful and very affordable. Like these gorgeous earrings. Aren't they amazing? And she's just a sweet person, to boot.
So is christinemarieford. Christine specializes in jewelry, quilting, and fiber art. And I must say, I'm just in love with her work. All of her pieces are truly unique and utterly beautiful. It's hard to choose a favorite, but if I absolutely had to, I think I'd have to go with this choker. It's just stunning!
And while we're on the subject of jewelry, you should be seeing some new pieces from me soon. Kitty was kind enough to buy me some gorgeous pearls and jade from BeadsAndPearls and I just can't wait to do something with them. If I manage to make something half as beautiful as the necklace she bought from them, I'll be happy.
But for now, I'm off to catch up on some other things and throw some dishes in the dishwasher before our pipes decide to freeze. It's cold. *shivers*
