All the items for sale on my Etsy shop are handmade and most of them are one of a kind and exclusive to Etsy.

Sometimes during the morning mist she brings her cattle above the surface to eat water hay. Vellamo wears a blue dress that is made from sea foam.

Between 2012 and 2014 I ran a magazine for iPad and iPhone, called Design Jewelry and Accessories. It featured talented artists and unique items in each issue, most of whom came from Etsy. Now I still run the website of the magazine and the Facebook page.

Recently I have added my mother as a designer in my shop as well. Her name is Eva and you will find her items in the section called Eva's Collection. She creates unique statement jewellery, using stones, pearls and crystals.

I have some of my photographs for sale as art prints on Etsy:
