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!
