From my favorite wire artist, Melissa, comes a piece of her work that I covet. I own a few of her pieces and I adore them. This particular piece is her Sterling Silver Wire Wrapped Iolite, Sapphire and Tanzanite Pendant Necklace. You can find her shop HERE. She's also running a sale right now for Christmas. Check her site for details.
My next fave is Lavender Cottage. I own some of her pieces too and the craftmanship involved is superb. I'm featuring a piece that I will most likely purchase very soon. This is her Sterling Silver and Brass Filigree Star Pendant with Labradorite - Dream Star.
She also has her own website in addition to Etsy which you can find HERE. Her stuff is gorgeous...and reasonable priced, two of my favorite things!
Another is the awesome GloryBee Foods website. Their products are great and encourage sustainable living. Not only do they have foods but they also stock products for the crafter and soapmaker. You can find their site HERE.
Another site for the home crafter that I used to use religiously is Bitter Creek South. They have candle supplies, potpourri supplies, lotion and body supplies and pretty much anything else you can think of. You can find their site HERE
I just love Rainwater Botanicals, another store on Etsy. I placed my first order with them and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and range of their products. One of their popular products is their Moisturizing Coconut and Dead Sea Salt Spray For Hair.
I have purchased their eye serum, hair serum, some of their soap and miscellaneous other things and I really liked them all. Their products are all natural and quite a few of them are organic. They are also running a sale right now.
Aaaand...more jewelry (can you imagine my jewelry box?? No. You possibly can't.) I have ordered pieces from her as well. Her prices vary and can range from medium to high enough that I can only covet and not buy. All of her designs are unique and usually contain absolutely beautiful stones. One of my favorite pieces from her is called "And the Roses Grew Around the Moss" - Moss Agate Necklace. If anyone wants to buy this for me, I would totally give you a dollar. You can find them HERE
Here's one from HapaGirls. I own this bracelet thanks to my BFF Crystal. She bought this piece for me when I graduated from college. Love you, Crystal!!! This is a Cherry Blossom Branch Bracelet and is made to order. You can find her shop HERE
There's also a pendant from Echo and Wild that I purchased awhile ago. It is simple and very elegant and they also have similar pieces if you are interested. You can find their shop HERE
So...there's hundreds of other worthy sellers out there but these are the ones I usually give most of my money to. Please check out their stores if you are interested. The Etsy sellers are normally all small businesses, usually with only one or two owners. Everything that is featured here (as far as jewelry) is painstakingly handmade. I will fork over my money in a heartbeat for something made with love. Other than that, I'm usually a cheap miser. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. May you all have a blessed Christmas and may the spirit of peace and hope find you!
