Other People Make Stuff, too….

I have been sewing, knitting, and crafting for years, however, there is one art form that I have yet to learn – jewelry making. For some reason, I just have not found the time to learn this craft, nor do I have a desperate desire to do so, mainly because of all the talented jewelry makers that are out there. I prefer to support handmade artisans, if I am able, and here is one artist that has grabbed my attention with her store on etsy, Heatherly Designs. Her pieces are exquisite, some with a very vintage feel, and others more modern. And the prices are incrediably reasonable. Here are some picks of mine (I hope to purchase these after this post!):

So lovely! And they’re only $12!

I am already envisioning wearing these everyday of the week….(can you tell I like green?)

This necklace at only $23, would be lovely for the Fall when paired with a chocolate brown tweed wool jumper…

If you know of any other deserving jewelry artists, please let me know. I am always looking for handmade jewelry to accesorize my handmade wardrobe.

    I’m a craftster member, and I was just going through the threads looking at the new stuff posted and came across the beautiful heather gray sweater made by your mom. I am a beginner sewer and am really wanting to learn more so that I can start to do some clothing reconstruction. Knitting as well….I have been crocheting for 6 years and only know how to knit and purl. Well anyhow, I saw that you have an interest in handcrafted jewelry, and I happen to be in the business! I have had a small handcrafted jewelry business for a year, Mimi’s Jewels. I have a myspace and a freewebs with my current creations, and I also do custom orders, reconstruction, and repair. Send me an email if you’d like to purchase something! I’ll be checking out your blog regularly to get more inspiration for sewing. šŸ™‚ -Kim
