It's time for a Giveway!!
Our fabulous creator of this month's ETTEAM giveaway is Jenny Hoople of Authentic Arts on Etsy.
From Jenny: "My good friend has told for years that I should sell some of the crafts that I am compelled to make. (I also knit, sew, paint, crochet, garden, etc. I'm always telling people that my hobby is picking up new hobbies!) I started making jewelry in July of 2009, and haven't been able to stop, so I decided to sell it! I choose knotted silk because I like its history, it's more romantic! I choose "natural" materials (stone, bone, wood, shell, silk) because even when altered by human hands and arranged and strung by them, the beauty of the processes that formed them breaks through and dazzles me.
Really, this jewelry is so wonderful because it's so much more meaningful than something that was mass-produced. Everything is designed and crafted by yours-truly from start to finish. An authentic life is a more meaningful one, and, for me, an authentic life is one that's handmade."
This colorful "Sashimi" necklace is an eye-catching combination of melon-red, lighter reddish-orange and turquoise, a perfect and unique accent for summer.
* 18" long
* Made with red aventurine, melon-dyed quartz, apatite.
* Silver-plated lobster clasp.
* Hand-knotted on silk (to prevent bead loss in case of breakage, and prevent bead abrasion)
Round, bright salmon-dyed quartz and light red aventurine are separated by small, sparkly chips of cheery, turquoise apatite. Comes packaged in a cotton-lined jewelry box, perfect for gift-giving!
