♥Love Etsy Love ♥

I love Etsy!
One of my felt peacock feather hair slides was featured in a lovely treasury, alongside some other fantastic etsy creations. Whilst checking out some of the great items I found this amazing necklace, Caribbean Surf Collar by NEMETON

Being totally impressed by its wonderful beauty and magical mermaidness I 'hearted' it and browsed the rest of nemeton's etsy wonderland! I was very impressed with what i found so I 'hearted' her shop so i could find it again. Later that day I received a convo from Lynn of nemeton saying I was her 400th heart and it was her 'Etsyversary' week so she would like to send me a 'little something' to say thank you.

♥WOW - how totally lovely!!!!
I received this little package in the post today with special rainbow ribbon too!

And inside was this totally gorgeous charm/keyring, which is now hanging from my bag in all its beady, sparkling glory!
Lynn Davy of Nemeton describes herself as an eccentric English seed bead artist who loves to create colourful, original jewellery with lots of texture and attention to detail. All the pieces she sells are her own original designs and handmade by her. Every piece, no matter how simple, is unique and will never be exactly repeated - even her kits are individually packed so no two are identical - so you can be sure you will never meet someone else wearing your necklace!

Her work has been featured in many of the major beading magazines (Beadwork, Bead & Button, Step by Step Beads, Bead) on both sides of the Atlantic. Her signature design is a lush fringed 'Garden' collar encrusted with beaded flowers and leaves. She also loves to make elaborate necklaces incorporating handmade lampwork glass beads by her favourite bead artists. Her inspiration comes from the beautiful coast and countryside near her home, and from the tiny details she observes in nature; She loves to spend happy hours gazing into rockpools whenever she gets the chance, although with another day job and a young family she doesn't get those chances very often!
A few of my favourites from her shop!
