An artisan jewelry journey in color, texture and fun. Beaded jewelry with handcrafted sterling silver is my focus and joy.
Tuesday, October 09, 2007
Whenever I'm searching for favorites from Etsy to feature in the Etsy Treasury (user-chosen collections to share with others on Etsy here), I turn often to one of the most colorful and beautifully photographed jewelry artists on Etsy: ALilSumptinSumptin. Eva has the most fabulous eye for selecting unbelievable lampwork focal beads, and then she pulls them together to create adornments to treasure.
Her inspiration? In her own words: "Whimsy brings me great joy and touches that little girl within me. Most of my creations reflect this aesthetic and frequently incorporate two things I love and enjoy: flower gardens & dogs. All my pieces are one-of-a-kind, oftentimes containing handcrafted Artisan Lampwork glass beads - wonderful little works of Art in themselves."
An artist focused not just on beauty, but integrity as well, she chooses all of the Artisan Lampwork beads in her pieces that have been properly kiln annealed by each respective glass artist to ensure long-lasting durability. She is a member of the SRAJD, so you can be assured that you are dealing directly with the jewelry artist and not a reseller, and she gives back to causes that are important to her through her sales of Paws for a Good Cause items. Guilt-free shopping for bling - who knew?
Do check out her shop and her blog to find that "lilsumptinsumptin" special for yourself or a gift.
