"I just want to run with the kittehs and make nice things for nice people..." someone once wrote about me... insinuating I was not one of those nice people LOL. What's really funny is, this came from the same person who decided to write me a nasty and mean-spirited convo on Etsy claiming that I copied her listing! Really, it was so petty. There are a lot of people on Etsy who do resin, jewelry grab bags, and charm necklaces/earrings... but Stacy and I both have a super-unique style that we infuse into each and every piece of jewelry that we make! And many of which are OOAK, original items too!
Anyhoo, on to more positive things! We strongly believe in supporting eachother in being crafty mamas and supporting others within the handmade community! We just think that we should all be here helping each other succeed so that we can all do what we love and make money for our families at the same time :) Whether it's making handmade silk flower clips, sewing baby tutus, modeling clothes and jewelry to build a portfolio, or opening a boutique! We've had the honor of working with many many great people who we've shared our jewelry with and they have reciprocated with love and support in different forms! Today, I just want to mention a few and get back into my blogging spirit!
First you should all go check out a fellow Etsy seller named Gloomth! She is an absolute doll and was kind enough to share with me some awesome photos she took that included my pink Sweet Cupcake necklace! If you like unique, girly but gothic clothing, you will adore her. www.gloomth.etsy.com
I also wanted to give a shout-out to talented musical artist named Fallsiar whom I had the pleasure of making a custom ouroboros necklace for. His music is totally unique, edgy and ethereal. I love his creativity and his ability to ignore the mainstream music scene and just do what he loves. Check it especially if you love Mr. Bungle, radiohead, etc. www.myspace.com/fallsiar
Stacy and I have awesome and loyal customers as well, and I just wanted to take a moment to give an extra special THANKS to Rachel! She not only has an extensive Essem Design collection, but she sends me awesome photos of her wearing them AND she avidly supports handmade crafters and Etsy shops! She is totally badass-radically-fabulous :) Rachel is an excellent photographer, loves steampunk and is a huge car enthusiast (and she really knows her stuff, too.) This girl is the real deal and rawks a Subaru STi! I made her a custom STi necklace among others. Thanks Rach, we ♥ you!
