I fell in love with her leather and copper "Love" bracelet as soon as I saw it (hint, hint)
Becky is a full-time preschool teacher and manages to find time in the evenings to make her jewelry. Becky creates custom copper jewelry by handcutting copper from sheet metal. She does all the sanding, shaping, texturing, oxidizing and makes sure to seal her jewelry for long lasting wear.
Becky spent part of her childhood in the Philippines where she picked up her love for the “rice” pearls that are sold in the street markets. Currently her favorite items to work with are pearl and silver Becky has a room devoted to her tools and supplies (I am envious) but enjoys working in the living room so she can spend time with her husband.
Cherry Designs is another wonderful shop that caught my eye. Kathy crafts all the handmade greeting cards for her shop Cherry Designs. Kathy launched Cherry Designs after a successful fundraiser for a breast cancer organization.
Each card is carefully crafted using colorful paper, stickers, buttons, ribbons and other embellishments. Most of all she loves working with color. I love her use of glitter.
