Hi there, my name is Kathy and I was a former teacher and am currently busy at home with my two boys. I have had a passion for fashion and interior decorating for a very long time...is leafing through glossy magazines a recognized sport yet? While I have not pursued a career in either of those fields I thought what can I do right now with my passion? Etsy provided the answer. I have a shop where I can be part of a creative community and design fun decor items for your home or you. The inspirations for my designs are from the fashion world, interior decorating, my friends, family, travels and nature. A lot of my designs are ecofriendly and use recycled cardboard, felt from recycled plastic bottles, non toxic glues and paints. My creations are meant to bring some color to your world. Take a look and have some fun at KiwiTiniCreations :))
Silver Blossoms Jewelry and Design by Donna Anderson is located in Portland, Oregon. I stay at home with my one year old daughter who keeps me very busy and very entertained. My husband and I have lived in Portland all our lives.
When I'm not beading, I enjoy travelling, cooking, running, and wine tasting. During this past holiday I was busy with special requests and Christmas Events. This led me to Etsy early this year and have been enjoy every minute of it. My background in beading started 20 years ago as a little girl, who loved the shimmer of rhinestones, diamonds and gemstones.
My passion and inspiration comes from seeing the sparkle in everyone and everything. I specialize in handcrafted beaded serving ware for weddings, dinner parties and gifts. My designs are very exclusive and can be custom ordered. I believe that handcrafted art is especially unique because it takes a lot of work for the artist to design, construct, and complete.
The outcome is so amazing and as a consumer, you can be assured a lot of work, heart and soul went into each piece. I enjoy that as an artist. My hope is that everyone who purchases a piece by Silver Blossoms Jewelry & Design really knows how much I enjoy making beautiful pieces.
Entertaining with elegance is my mission because your guests should feel special. Your table scape should show that...
Creating jewelry has been a passion of mine since I can remember. Even as a child I was stringing beads for bracelets and making earrings out of game pieces and Barbie's accessories! In college and later, I made tons of beaded jewelry to wear myself, and also for friends and family as gifts. Very recently, I opened an Etsy store to turn my hobby into a business.
I love learning new techniques and experimenting with different designs and materials. Lately, I've been wire wrapping beads and stones, and weaving, braiding and crocheting wire and cord with beads to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces.
My name is Sarah, but you can call me Teslas, I've had the crafting bug ever since I can remember. Growing up I've learned it all, from bead working, to scrap booking, to wood working. I picked up crocheting as a way to stick with my diet, as a current culinary student I packed on a little more then the freshman 15 (if you catch my drift). Crocheting is a way to keep my distracted long enough not to keep sticking my hand in the back of chips.
Yep, I'm a twenty year old college student, and if that isn't difficult enough, I have little to no financial support from my family, living in my own apartment, and having a very restricted schedule making even a part time job nearly impossible. So this is not just a hobby for me. The investment that you make in my products for your home helps to provide for my family. I strive very hard to live debt-free. Even living a very financially conservative lifestyle, it's still difficult to make ends meet.
I create Crocheted Amigurumi Animals, "Amigurumi is Japanese for small crochet stuffed animals It literally comes from a combination of the Japanese words ami, meaning crocheted or knitted, and nuigurumi, meaning stuffed doll." Cool, huh? The things you learn while shopping
