On Etsy since 2015

I am a Beach Boho, Elegant Hippie Sorta Gal!

Growing up in Florida, my sisters and I loved going to go the beach and being outdoors and near the water. To me, the beach is one of the most relaxing places I can think of. I have always loved beach combing, and as an adult, who has moved from her home state, I love going back to Cocoa Beach to walk, take pictures, and collect beautiful objects that wash ashore.

The first piece of jewelry I ever made was back in junior high, and later as a teenager, I would often make my own earrings as well as beaded macramé chokers. When I got older, I went to college, got married, and started a family, so I had little time to design and create. As my children grew up and one by one left the nest, I returned to my love of making jewelry, and soon after, people were asking me to make custom jewelry pieces, very often to coordinate with special outfits they might have. This encouraged me to finally do something with my jewelry. Since I am a Florida girl and love to dance, I started a blog called Tappingflamingo, and in Oct 2015, I opened my Etsy Shop....TappingflamingoBling.

I started out with beaded necklaces and earrings and branched out into using recycled items. I love to use paper to make beads and old guitar strings that I gather, clean, and make into ornaments, keychains, and jewelry. Additionally, I make cruise items such as lanyards (which you can wear to work), keychains (great for gift exchanges or fish extenders), and beaded dread locks or hair jewelry.

The items I have in my shop have somewhat of a beach-boho or even elegant hippie flair to them. I prefer the organic look of natural stones and also colorful glass beads and crystals. I love making one of kind items that are unexpected and beautiful, inspired by nature.

Hi! My I’m Terry Jeanette and I love to make beach and cruise inspired jewelry and accessories. As the Tappingflamingo (tappingflamingo@blogspot.com), I’ve been blogging and making jewelry for a number of years. My friends and family loved my creations, and after several years of everyone trying to push me into selling my lovelies, I finally opened my TappingflamingoBling Etsy shop (Oct 2015).

When I first opened my shop, I had no idea about the business side of things. I love to create, and wanted to share my talent with others. My shop has grown from beach inspired jewelry, to my most popular items...cruise inspired keychains. These are used for gift exchanges, sometimes called Fish Extender Gifts.

In February 2017, I started making waterproof autism awareness bracelets. People loved this idea, and now I make them for different awarenesses, and now school colors. Many of these bracelets are custom made, so if you have an idea of colors you would like, just convo me.

It is my hope that I can continue to grow…but keeping my shop very personable. I feel that each of my customers is a close friend…even though I may not have ever met them. As I create, I think about who will be wearing this piece, making sure it is created as if they were my best friend.
