New Etsy Items

New Etsy items posted tonight! Be sure to check out all the new items and especially these earrings! I used small milky blue glass beads and larger clear faceted beads to create a loop. I wired the loop to silver fish hook earring backs. These will be perfect for your next beach vacation!

Happy Father's Day! Featured Etsy Item of the Week

Yes, it is Father's Day, but no, the featured item of the week has nothing to do with fathers. I don't really have any merchandise geared towards the men of the house, but what Dad doesn't want their girl looking like a million bucks?? (especially when it only costs $7.50!) This week's featured Etsy item, is a multi-strand beaded necklace. This necklace features sandy yellow, plum, and ice blue beads. I love the color combination! It makes the piece very versatile. The necklace clasps with a gold toggle hook. To see more details, you can view the item in my Etsy shop... Thanks for checking it out! Make sure to wish all the fathers a happy day!

Featured Etsy Item of the Week

This week's featured item is brand spankin' new! It's a 28"x28" throw pillow made from an Italian silk scarf and cotton twill fabric. This pillow has beautiful colors: green, red-orange, and yellow. I sewed in snaps on the bottom seem so that the cover can be taken off and washed or dry-cleaned. Has a Euro pillow form inside the cover. It would make a great featured accent pillow on any bed, couch, or arm-chair!
