These arrived (quickly!) and are just as pictured. They look substantial but are very lightweight. The choice of bead colors was brilliant. They are unusual and beautiful - I will wear them a lot.

These are very cool earrings, kind of tribal-looking. I love the tiny black beads on each end of the larger patterned bead; and I love the black findings. They are lightweight but look heavy and substantial. A worthwhile purchase!

Works so well!-- truly at least twice as fast as my mesh pouf or bath mitt, I suppose due to shape. Just the right size for my small hand to manipulate. Thanks lots! T
What My Kinsmade
Artisan skills belonging to the past are seldom preserved in our fast-paced modern world, but this has only created a more passionate desire for rare handmade and one-of-a-kind gifts. Globalization has brought us new materials and new markets, so the future of those patient enough to teach and to learn how to craft have an opportunity to take it to the next level. We hope to inspire you to appreciate handmade items and honor our timeless traditions by purchasing valuable keepsakes to pass on to your kin.
Some families center their gatherings around food, but not us. Kinsmade really is "Where Crafts Are Family Tradition." All of our family memories have crafting at their core. We may be painting each others fingernails, crocheting, beading, consulting one another on design or construction, or swapping supplies. Our skills vary, but we support each other in our creative efforts. When your only family argument is whether Mom should trim that piece in blue or silver, you can truly find domestic peace. It's a lifestyle choice that we highly recommend!
Inviting others to join to create with us has provided a joyous way to create and maintain friendships. Bringing our collective talents to Etsy has really expanded this exciting prospect. We hope you will follow us, and return to our shop again and again for great products, and to join in the fun!
