In addition to my website / on-line store, I also have a shop on Etsy.com. Etsy is a world-wide shopping venue for hand-crafted goods. If you enjoy buying hand-made you may want to check Etsy out.
Etsy has a fun feature that both buyers and sellers can use to make "treasuries" of 12 items. Every day they pick a couple of these to be shown on Etsy's front page.
Today I was featured in this treasury by abbasgirl on Etsy.com:

In my new blog I want to regularly feature some wonderful artists of hand-crafted goods. I'm happy to introduce you to the first of these: Rachel of Rachel's Aprons. I found her wonderful, swirl pattern, spa facial scrubbies and pretty crochet washcloths in her store at Etsy.com. They are 100% cotton, hard-wearing and eco-friendly as well as beautiful and functional. You can read a little more about Rachel and her shop below:
I'm starting a new feature on my website and blog called TODAY'S SPECIAL. My goal is to change this every Tuesday or more often if the item sells. Keep checking in for great deals.
My first featured item, the pearl and red coral necklace set above is $10 off just in time for Valentine's Day.

This is my first attempt at blogging. I thought I would give it a try by showing you one of my favorite pieces of jewelry that I have made. It is a white keishi pearl necklace with premium quality keishi pearls interspersed with small round white pearls.
Keishis are my favorite because they are real freshwater pearls shaped like flower petals. These keishi pearls are especially large, lustrous and flattering to wear with almost anything.
Amy models this set for me in the photo above. You can see how lovely it looks with a simple tank top and imagine it with a ball gown. Find it in my Etsy.com store.
