Announcement   Welcome to my shop.
I sell handmade jewelry and bridal headpieces. For the earrings and the necklaces I use a mix of vintage beads, glass, crystal and murano beads and printed and metallic leather. Some of the pieces are only made out of leather and most of them are unique.
The bridal headpieces may include many of these materials as well as embroidery, lace, textile findings,vintage brooches and sheet metal. These are unique pieces with a special emphasis on the combination of materials that inspires them.
Since I have spent many years scouting for interesting materials at the flea markets,there is something of a vintage feeling to my work.
I enjoy making the pieces be rich in materials so the style is pretty much baroque.

About

Connecting Emotions Through Handmade Jewelry and Bridal Headpieces

LaLunaTreats was born a couple weeks ago in a beautiful place in our country called Punta Rubia. I have been making handcrafted jewelry for almost 20 years now but I came up with this name because it's summer here and I love to watch the moon come out with my boyfriend and photographer who is also a nature lover.
The name also relates to the fact that I like adding leather stars, hearts and seahorses to my necklaces and earrings.
I come from a family where everyone went to university and then seemed to develop a second profession or I would better say passion in life. This is how my mother originally a lawyer then enrolled again in university to become an art conservator. I remember she used to LOVE everything that had to do with sewing, knitting and crafts. As a child I would get mad at her because she loved to buy fabrics and make me and my sister's clothes instead of buying them. My father who was also a lawyer at origin is now a paper conservator.
When I was 15 a friend of mine moved away to another country and I was so sad I cried for entire days. My mom showed up with a pair of knitting needles and told me she was going to teach me how to use them because this would definitely help me feel better. She taught me that handcrafting things is deeply therapeutic. I must tell you that many years after this I also went to university and became a psychologist. Today I recognize the undisputed value of making your own crafts as well as contacting your emotions through dance and anything that will connect you with your body.
Ever since I can remember I have collected materials from all around the world, since the story of my life has frequently been saying goodbye to people I loved and travelling all the time. These material treasures were small enough to be carried anywhere and became a part of my nomadic identity.
Also somewhere down the line I managed to settle down and find my place in the world.

    I love colour and believe in it's power to enlighten and heal the soul. I've been experimenting with beads and textile findings for over 20 years to create one of a kind pieces that convey part of my own self to another wonderful human being.

WELCOME and thank you for checking out my shop.

LaLuna Treats sells handmade jewelry and unique bridal headpieces. The materials employed to make them include a very wide variety of beads vintage and new, antique brooches and pieces collected throughout years of frentic flea market hunting! I also love mixing printed and metallic leather and some of the earrings and necklaces are only made out of leather.

Headpieces vary in a very wide range of materials that also include sheet metal, embroidery, lace and all sorts of textile findings. The use of soft colours (mainly crystal and glass beads) to embelish brides is certainly a personal mark.

When I make a new piece I only know where it starts but I never know how it will evolve...
Doing this work is a passion that first began as a hobby 20 years ago when I was working as an art conservator.

Please bear in mind that my shop is officially opening today since it has taken me a few weeks to polish up my ideas on where to start from. As I am new at etsy I would really LOVE to receive your FEEDBACK and suggestions!!
My special thanks to other etsy sellers from Uruguay who have taught me very carefully how to sell through this site.

Putting together interesting pieces is my obsession so it's impossible to open my handbag and not find a handfull of beads or a pair of pliers with some wire being carried all over.

Many second items you purchase will not have any extra shipping cost.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ITEMS PRICED OVER 150 DOLLARS WILL BE UPGRADED TO INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS SHIPPING UNLESS YOU SPECIFICALLY ASK ME NOT TO DO SO. THESE ITEMS ARE MOST LIKELY TO BE ONE OF A KIND BRIDAL PIECES THAT I WOULD PREFER TO BE ABLE TO TRACK AT ALL TIMES.
