Tuesday Treasure: Glorious Beaded Jewelry

by Molly Kimball, elephantbeads

Glory of Jewels, one of Etsy’s newer shops, features handcrafted beaded jewelry by artist and shop owner, Sabrina Washington. Sabrina’s work is colorful, creative, and truly glorious. Many of her offerings include necklace with matching earrings, which is helpful when you are looking for the jewelry that perfectly matches a particular outfit.

As with many Etsy artisans, Sabrina was encouraged to open her shop by friends and family who had been enjoying her creations. Now she is making them available to all of us, and we look forward to seeing what new items she will be bringing to her shop!

The vintage collectibles in Etsy’s SecondImpulse shop were collected with devotion by shop owner Harriet, but she is now ready to part with them one by one. She takes pleasure in knowing that each treasure finds a new home and creates happiness in a new life – which is one of the wonderful things about vintage items.  We have selected just a few of our favorites – but there are many more, and it is worth a visit to see what you might find!

Tuesday Treasure: Octopus Necklace in Chainmaille

By M Kimball, ElephantBeads

Chainmaille jewelry is time consuming to create, and can be spectacular in design. Styles range from folk to bohemian to gothic, and are only limited by the imagination of the chainmaille artist. The chainmaille jewelry and ornaments at DoBatsEatCats on Etsy are out-of-the-box creative finds. The Octopus necklace below is a particularly awesome treasure, but we’ve included a few other items from this shop – including some non-chainmaille earrings – to whet your appetite:

Friday Feature: SassyBelleWares

Today we are visiting with Stephanie, from SassyBelleWares:

I started my shop about a year after I discovered and fell in love with Etsy. I did quite a bit of shopping on Etsy first and eventually decided to try my hand at selling. I love that on Etsy shoppers have a one stop place for buying so many unique pieces.

Etsy makes it so easy to sit down with a list of gifts I need to buy and check off everyone on that list in one “shopping trip”! I also love that shopping on Etsy means I am supporting small business owners.

I put together accessories in hope that they will make the wearer smile whenever they have them on. SassyBelleWares has a little bit of everything and a lot of sass!
