Featured Etsy Artist ~ SparklyStrandz
Bare with me the next few weeks as I am going to try to get back into the routine of posting everyday. I have been SWAMPED with orders (which is a blessing) but that and the normal day to day life, and well honestly I don't HAVE the time to blog!
So tonight I am featuring an etsy shop called Sparkly Strandz. This shop is awesome, where the artist crochets and makes jewelry. There is all kinds of cool things, even some AWESOME nursing necklace!
Here is a bit taken from her profile:
I've had a love for crafts, especially crochet for over 25 years ever since my grandmother taught me at age 5. It was probably the best thing she could have done for my parents because it would keep me busy for hours. During college, I developed a love for beads--not just because they're sparkly, but because beads have such a rich history to them from around the world, and can be made from almost anything imaginable. Also, as an occupational therapist, I am able to use a variety of crafts and activities in my therapy to make it more fun!
I combined my love for crochet and beads and began making jewelry, baby onesies, hats, and all sorts of gift items about 10 years ago. "Sparkly Strandz" is an online store that you can visit and create your own jewelry by choosing the right color bead, wire, and length you want for that perfect piece!!
You can visit her etsy shop and also her blog to get a feel for this artist and her work. As usual I have some of my favorites listed. Thanks!
