Today, I am pleased to introduce two of these people - Angie and Jenny. They are sisters who love handmade, and create beautiful jewelry. Rings, bracelets, necklaces and more are available at their Etsy shop, eyecandycrystal. Here is what Angie says about her work:
After seeing all of my sister's creations (she has a unique ability to sit down with beads and wire and make a one-of-a-kind beauty), we decided to create an account on Etsy! As a person that has always loved rings, I started there, plus stringing beads to make basic earrings. When I lost my job (like many of us have) I desperately needed something to occupy my time. It's always frustrating when first starting out with something new, but it's been great fun for me to learn and increase my knowledge of beads, stones, gems and wire. Knowing what Swarovski crystal color I'm looking at is a triumph for me!
Sitting down with my jewelry all around me (literally) and a beading magazine on my lap is fun... Three years ago I would have laughed if you told me I would say that! While I haven't been able to "quit my day job", as many on Etsy have been able to do, it makes me happy when someone loves my pieces enough to purchase them. Giving gifts to friends and family that are created just for them is great. I've also branched out to making cell phone charms, eyeglass chains/lanyards and beaded bookmarkers on my other site: www.angiesjumbledmusings.etsy.com
Right now, all eyecandycrystal rings are on sale - 40% off through August 31!
Angie is generously giving away a pair of Caribbean Opal Sterling Earrings! Aren't they gorgeous?
