BESTeam Feature Week of 1/15

It has been rather cold here in the Middle East. Cold is a relative term, of course,  considering the fact that there are many countries in this world where the temperatures are extremely low most of the winter, such as in USA, Canada, and  Europe. But here in the Middle East we are kind of spoiled (only  weather wise). A little chilly air and we pray for warmer weather. By chilly I mean 7c which is more known to you as 44,6F. If at least we had a little snow to play with...
So before I dress up warmly to greet the day, I am sitting here in front of my computer and writing a feature about some of my BESTeam friends:

CC is an American lady who had lived in Bangkok, Thailand for 9 years. She loves Chinese Blue and White beads and has created necklaces and bracelets with them, while mixing them with other materials. Since July 2010 she has moved with her husband  from Asia to South America and has been living now in Santiago in  Chile. This is a new adventure for her, and she is loving it.
From CC's shop I've chosen this beautiful and elegant Chains and Rings necklace which is created from silver toned metal rings which are strung onto multiple chains.  Measurements are 18" plus a 3 inch extension chain. (45 cm plus7 cm).

Agnes is the owner of this cute shop and is a mother of 5 and  a grandma of seven  boys. She loves crafts,especially making jewelry... She hopes that after her retirement she will be able to dedicate more time to creating jewelry.
I wish her lots of success in this, because I know - it is great  fun!
In her jewelry she uses any medium .It could be crystals, paper beads, polymer clay, stamping. Most of her jewelry never gets to her Etsy shop because it is snatched by family and friends! Now we can follow her shop and check in to see whether she has added any new items. My favorite is this colorful Skull Bracelet . It is created with magic elastic so it can easily be worn on any wrist.

Ellen loves  mainly to crochet. She Has a beautiful Etsy shop full of very pretty crochet and bead jewelry, side by side with other functional items. I chose to add here this gorgeous cell phone charm .It is one of my many favorites from this shop. It is a Beaded Crochet Butterfly Cell Phone Charm made of coral and purple/black seed beads.  As my cell phone is mostly deep in my handbag, I would love to show it off on my sweater or coat.

Have a nice warm day everyone, and thank you for watching!

Wow, Irith, love the choices! Just when you think that you know your team members creations, it takes another persons "eye" to bring other creations to light! Thank you also for your birthday wishes. I have been under the weather for the past 36 hours, didn't even have the energy to go on line. When I finally did, you cannot imagine how good it felt to see such warm wishes from my friends! Thank you again, so much!
Aloha, Connie

What an awesome feature Irith, Thank you very much. I so look forward to your BESTeam Features.
I would love to send you some of the new snow we here in the Pacific Northwest received last night! There was none when I went to bed, and about 2 or three inches on the ground when I woke up! It's very pretty out right now!

Every time I go to a BESTeam member's shop/blog, I am blown away by the talent on view! It's going to take some hard work to keep up - love the selection, especially the spider coat decoration!

Hope it's getting warmer for you: somehow one doesn't associate Middle East and cold!

You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I'd never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely broad for me. I am having a look ahead on your next post, I will try to get the cling of it!
