BESTeam Features Week of 11/13/11


 I think I have some luck with the weather. It was raining cats and dogs in the morning, with strong winds howling outside. I stayed home with my cat, nice and cozy for a few hours. Then I felt that nothing doing! Storm or no storm, I must go out to do what I have to do - go to the post office to send a few parcels,  to the supermarket,  the bank, etc., I picked my umbrella, and what do you know? - the rain had stopped as soon as I walked out the door, and the sun was peaking here and there between the clouds. I stayed out for about two hours and returned home. As soon as I unlocked the door - a heavy shower! So what do you have to say to that? I guess somebody up there likes me... (only every once in a while I think)

. As for my handmade jewelry workshop, I've been a little more productive this week. I handcrafted two pairs of ear studs and goldplated them:

I would like to present to you three of my BESTeam (Boosting Etsy Shops Team)members and their unique shops:

Danielle Saletzki
Danielle is a professional graphic designer and works at a local newspaper near her home. As much as she loves her job, she enjoys creating with her hands. She loves to handcrafte fashionable hair bows.

In her shop -Chicky D's,  you will find various accessories and gifts for women of all ages.
You will find her on Facebook and Twitter::!/Danizabeth2

The next shop is Cindy's - CK Silver
In CK Silver you will find classic, well made handcrafted elegant silver jewelry,to be worn with pride. Cindy puts her heart into every item she creates. You can see this in her shop's images:

The shop's specialities are sterling silver, pearls, semi-precious stones, and Swarovski crystals.
Cindy is primarily inspired  by the beauty of Nature, and the amazing richness of creation. She mainly loves earth tones and other colors found in the landscapes surrounding her.

When I first viewed the wine charm  in this shop, made of empty brass shell castings. I felt a shiver go through my spine! It immediately reminded me of the following verse from the Bible:
Isaiah chapter D
"... And He shall judge between the nations, and shall decide for many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. ..."

Perhaps you will think that I am being TOO dramatic. Please let me say this of AbsolutelyKismet - if every weapon in this world was turned into a beautiful item, such as the small example in this shop, the world would be a much nicer place to live in!

Have a great day everyone!
