Pisces by stardust They are sensitive, imaginative, artistic and dreamy. They have a desire to learn new things and are very creative.
Pisces is the most romantic sign and cannot tolerate being lonely or rejected. They are gentle by nature, very friendly and compassionate people.
Travel appeals to Pisces and they love to visit far off unexplored places. Anything off beat & remote is bound to catch their attention.
Famous Pisces include Albert Einstein, Ansel Adams, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, Marlon Brando and Drew Barrymore. 2nd in our series of Astrological signs by Sophie n Me.

Chocolate chip (in vanilla ice cream) 8. What is your favorite material to work with? I work with resin, which is a bear. A necessary evil to make what I want to make.

Beautiful Day Reversible Art Necklace
Romantic 19th Century Portrait & Floral Necklace 9. What don't people know about you? People who are looking at my Etsy shop probably wouldn't know that the great majority of my business is wholesale, primarily selling to museum shops. 10. How many hours do you spend a day searching for stuff on Etsy? It's my goal to spend two hours a day on Etsy -- adding items to my shop, searching the forums, searching other shops, reading the cccoe blog, etc. I reach my goal about half the time . . .
Thank you Lisa for sharing yourself and masterpieces with us!

Hoop Earrings Handmade in Argentium by Aubepine
Elegant and understated these earrings illustrate minimalism perfectly. No fuss, just gorgeous jewelry. These earrings will class up any spring outfit with a touch of class and sophistication.
Pleat Purse by salvageshop
This purse screams minimalism. Clean lines and muted color create this one of a kind purse. I love that the seller uses salvaged leather, this was once a upholstery sample and now it is a sleek and chic purse that was meant to be seen.
Man Bowl - Licorice Glaze by Shula (ClayMystique)
Understated, dark, and simply gorgeous, this bowl is another one of my favorites. No frills, just simple. Named the man bowl; this woman cannot wait to get her hands on it.
Minimalist Wedding Dress Organic Hemp, Bamboo or Cotton Jersey by Murielle (MurielleKnitwear)
As I was researching this topic I was happy I stumbled onto this dress. I spent last year wedding dress shopping with my now sister-in-law and everything I saw had too much going on....this does not; to me it is perfect. Simple and elegant it lets the bride shine.
Black Onyx Stretch Bracelet - Spin the Black Circle by AnKaLi
Once again the item showcased is simple with not a lot going on. Monotone in color, no clasp, nothing is there but the Black Agate Beads that create the Bracelet.
