An artisan jewelry journey in color, texture and fun. Beaded jewelry with handcrafted sterling silver is my focus and joy.

Awaken the Goddess Within

Many of the artists at Etsy profess a life-long calling to art. One of the site's gifts is that it provides such a friendly forum (haha, even though sometimes the "Forums" are not so friendly!) for these artists to showcase their artistic expressions. An artist such as this is Andee Harston from Orlando, who loves to draw, paint, sculpt, make jewelry, and most recently, express herself in photography. Her jewelry business, Celtic Goddess Jewelry, was started in early 2001.

Andee's life and her art is influenced by spiritual learning, nature and goddess and Celtic imagery, and she identifies very strongly with her Celtic heritage. I found her spiritual and natural pieces very compelling, with a strong design sense, and beautifully elegant lines.

She has also launched a bath-and-body shop, Sacred Waters Bath, offering soaps in unique shapes and scents, bath teas and more.

You can see all of her work on her website gallery, shop at Celtic Goddess Jewelry, and learn more about Andee and her views on the world and other indie artists on her blog.
