Win a gorgeous jewelry!

Yep, probably after having two shops carrying jewerly with semi-precious stones and crystals I still love jewelry.

One the people I know offering on the website competition for winning prices of 200$ and 5000$ to win to use on jewelry. There are some truly gorgeous jewelry pieces... I am sharing only the silver simply because I am not a real fan of the gold....(I guess with too much energy I have I feel much more comfortable with silver).

What you have to do to win is just to share a badge on your blog or website. You will be entering the competition as long as badge is displayed.

Wanna try?

Feature for Etsy creative people

And our next week of featured creative Etsy folks is here :)

I hope you will enjoy the visit to their shops!


I love the gentle pastel colors of the jewelry, they feels so feminine and so inviting. They feels fresh like a real spring.

"Tippy Stockton jewelry is designed and handmade from sterling silver, vintage, and glass beads. My inspiration is great color, texture and a bit of nature thrown in for good measure. You might call me a "jane of all design trades". I love jewelry, textiles, paper - see, I told you! I began creating jewelry when I couldn't find the perfect necklace for a special event. So my imagination took over and as they say, the rest is history.

All of my jewelry is entirely sterling silver, unless I specify otherwise in my description. I have been experimenting with my photography - if I don't convey exactly what you're wanting, please feel free to convo me for additional details.

I hope that you enjoy my ETSY site and thank you for your support of everything handmade!!!">


I am definately in love with a bags and coffee cozys! I love the retro style of the fabric and colorful desings, truly an eye candy.

"Hi there! You probably clicked on my profile to learn some juicy personal crap about me. Well, here it goes, my whole life!

Just kidding. I'm going to some it up for you. I'm in my wee-early 20's and I joined etsy as a way to 'express my inner creative self' *yawn*... It really is a way for me to vent out though. If I'm mad, I sew. If I'm bored, I sew. If my dog is making me mad, I sew. If I saw this lady at the salon with this real cute bag, I go home and sew it.

Currently, I live in east bay California (it's not OAKKKLAND or anything, so really, it's not that's exciting) and have for about a year. Me, my boyfriend, and our 90lb pitbull Mr David Bowie don't really like it. We're going to be moving to Philly very soon. Nate's parents are there and since I grew up in Chicago, I'll feel closer to home. Basically, we're traveling nuts in love who live the 'get up and leave' life.

As for some credentials... after highschool, I went to design college and I left with a measly certificate in Fashion Design. See ma, I left school with a paper! I'm much, much, much more happier sewing bags than clothes.

I am already picking couple of favorites from the gorgeous wall decorations there! I will be sure to have some of them before we will finally redecorate upstairs.

"Originally from Melbourne, Australia, we have recently relocated to Sunny Singapore!

Decorette is a line of self-adhesive vinyl graphics (aka wall decals) created for people who want to easily transform the look of their room space in minutes! A fantastic alternative to wallpaper and paint, these vinyl art decals are so thin, designs look like they are painted on.

Quick and easy to apply, these can be affixed to any smooth, flat surface like a wall, fridge, mirror, window, laptops, the ceiling and even the floor. The possibilities are just endless! Simply choose your space, then peel and stick to create instant art designs without the hassle of paint, tools or mess.

Decorettes are completely removable (but NOT reusable) so when you’re ready for a change, simply peel off and start again!

We love custom orders so please feel free to send us your requests!

If you in search for a baby showers gifts you will love those!! Can you imagine all the bouquets are actually made of baby basics! Baby sleepers, onesies, blankets, socks and so on, isnt it adorable?

"For the last 8 years I have been making custom gifts for my friends and family to celebrate special occasions: Weddings, Engagements, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, Baptisms, Graduations, Housewarmings, and Birthdays.

After being told to start a business and share my talents, I found my way here to etsy. I received a similiar "blooming bouquet" of kitchen items for my own bridal shower last year and was inspired to make my own. I remember how special I felt receiving such a unique gift.

Besides being a Martha Stewart wanna-be, I am an avid bargain shopper. My knack for finding bargains is why I can make my blooming bouquets with high quality baby clothes, items, and kitchen towels at below retail value.

I love combining my two favorite hobbies: shopping and crafting! It is an honor to make a special gift for your loved one."


GORGEOUS pinchusions! I truly had a hard time to pick a favorites :) and of course wonderful bold and happy colored quilts and gift items!

"Cheers from sunny and beautiful Bulgaria! It is an inspiring place in South-Eastern Europe by the Black Sea coast, which I see from my window.

I started crafting when I was 6. My grand mother taught me lots of things and I really loved them.
After some time, an arts high school and not so arty university diploma, I decided to make a career twist and devote all of my time to crafting and family. So I made up a small quilt studio and gift shop and started making other people happy by doing my favorite thing - crafting!

I talk more about my crafting on my blog:

Thanks for stopping by!"

Do you like knitted things and yarn? I am sure you will be in love with a colorful and funky creations there :) I already putting several of the knitted "friends" in my favorites :) and a baby clothes are just adorable.

"Here you will find a lot of pretty baby dresses. Sorry, I am partial to girls, having raised my own daughter, she's now about to turn 17. Where did the time go?

I also have some crocheted friends I have made for both boys and girls. Don't forget about the baby blankets. They come in all colors of the rainbow."


And here I think half of the shop will be sitting in my favorites. Why wouldnt like a cute green fluffy cat or the most adorable monster existed? ;)

"Cheezombie often finds herself bleary eyed and finger sore, but still knitting and watching slasher movies, at 2 a.m. The byproducts of these late night sessions fuel others, whereby creating a cycle of sleeplessness and creativity."


Do you like making things yourself? Do you sometimes wish you would had a right pattern? There is a place, huge ammount of WONDERFUL PDF patters for so many different and pretty creations.

Jen writes about herself:

"My name is Jen, I started making felt toys for my children when toys were being recalled in great numbers. I loved making them so much- I figured others would as well- and opened my shop. All of my patterns are original, hand drafted patterns by myself. They include a supply list, color photos full size patterns, and detailed instructions."


Did you knew that a t-shirt can transform itself into a cute red rabbit? Or that acrylic pendants can be so ellegant? You will definately need to visit Alex shop to see it yourself...

Alex writes:

"My name is Alex Broadbent, I'm 23 years old, and I got a BA(hons) in Visual Communications in June 2008. My primary artistic background is in graphic design, but I'm now beginning to branch out into illustration, photography and knitting. I've been attempting to learn a new skill every month or so since leaving university, and so far have learnt how to bind books, use a sewing machine, knit in the round, bake cupcakes, and some basic garment repairs.

My blog is:
And I recently did a project with zink on:

My Etsy shop is:
The products I create in my Etsy shop are all original designs created by myself. Inspiration for my products comes from far and wide, and all my designs start of as sketches in my notebook.

Since learning how to machine stitch I’m in the process of making some new items for my Etsy shop, including shopping totes, cosmetics bags, and mini satchel bags."


Jewelry from Gwen has a wonderful feel of optimism, forms are special and colors are bold and happy. There is a such a big collection I am sure everybody can find something they like.
