Carolyn's Profile

About

I joined etsy in 2008, as a buyer, I didn't actually open my own shop until July 2011.
I am an admitted Bead-a-Holic, I create jewelry that is OOAK, and most incorporate natural stones as a jumping-off point. My works range from basic necklaces in the affordable $25 on up to $800 for the serious art collector.
I add items all the time to my shop, I have accomplished many different skills, but I find my most enjoyable is beading and sewing. Well and crochet, Oh, can't forget the polymer clay! Oh, see now you maybe can understand why my shop is 'eclectic', as it's hard for me to stick to just one medium.
As items here expire from their time, I will be moving my baby items, crochet patterns, and adult hats over to my wedding shop, named for my maternal Grandmother

It is a long process to make my Art jewelry and my dolls, and I put my heart and soul into each and every one.
My newest creations are fascinators, Fairy bags and Fairy skirts, to be added soon. I am inspired by all the beautiful ones I have seen, but also a bit saddened by the cost of them. I decided to make mine well, and with new quality materials, but to also keep them affordable for those living on a budget (most of us are!) If you see something you like, but it's just out of reach, or can't decide between a couple (or more) items, just let me know! I don't mind 'Lay-Away', and will list items that way for people, but I ask you be certain before buying on layaway. ;)
My daughter also has two shops on here: www.etsy.com/shop/YummyBowsandPins?ref=ss_profile
and also: www.etsy.com/shop/TheGypsyWolf?ref=ss_profile

I belong to several Teams here on etsy: Handmade Jewelry Guild, pcf team, CAL Central Valley, etsy Talent Hunt, Shopsteam, Promoting Creative Friends, California Crafters Club of Etsy, just to name a few, and I keep adding more of these wonderful people and teams.

Have a cup of tea, put your feet up, and enjoy my shop ;)
