HAF artists spotlight - Finding Charm


 
One of my favorite things from the Handmadeartists.com forum is the blog ring.  Every week I get to share with you the creations from some very talented artists, and this week is my first time featuring Sarah from Finding Charm.  Sarah creates budget friendly beaded jewelry and she maintains shops on FOUR different sites!  I have trouble juggling 2, lol.  So, I'm going to share with you one item from each shop.  First up, in no particular order...
 
her Etsy shop, where I found these way cool Gypsy Bohemian Gold Earrings "You won't find these Gypsy Bohemian Hoop Gold Earrings anywhere else! A variety of gold, creams, green and tan beads are used on the charms. The round hoops have a decorative etching on them. These are light and airy earrings that can be worn with any outfit to add fun and whimsy. Sing Gypsies, tramps and thieves wearing these gypsy gold earrings.
*The earrings dangle 1 1/2 inches and are 1 1/2 inches wide.
Go ahead, make it a gift set! Matching eyeglass chain:

Next I visited her eCrater shop, where Hannah choose this Purple Statement Necklace"The purple pendant is my favorite in this Purple Statement Necklace. The oval pendant is an oblong plastic oval that appears to be 3D. The pendant has a purple back with lime green scroll while the rest is clear plastic to give it that 3 D look. The double strands are made of mixed greens and purples glass beads. The green strand shimmers with a variety of shades of greens such as lime green, grass green, and kelly green. The purple strand are rounded triangle beads of plum, lilac, lavender, and grape. The strands not only shine, but are full of textures and shapes.* The lightweight necklace measures 17 1/2 inches and a silver plated barrel clasp is the closure.* The statement pendant is 2 1/2 inches long and not quite 2 inches wide. "
Sarah started to create jewelry for herself because she could not find the "perfect piece" to go with a particular outfit.  Then she got hooked on beads.  I know that feeling!  "Hello, my name is Debbi and I'm a beadaholic".  LOL.  Next up....
 
her Zibbet shop.  I love the dainty feel of this Lampwork Charm Bracelet"Charm up your Spring or Summer outfit with this Lampwork Charm Bracelet and Charm Earrings. Do you like to garden? Know someone who does? A Floral Pastel Lampwork Charm Bracelet and Earrings are perfect for the gardener. Sweet floral pastel lampwork beads with a pink and blue floral design are used to make this charm bracelet and earrings. Blue and pink trumpet beads, blue glass beads and textured pink beads dance among the lampwork beads on silver plated rings. Beautiful addition to your Easter dress.* The handmade bracelet measures 8 inches and a silverplated lobster clasp is used.* Matching handmade earrings dangle shy of 2 inches."
 
And I found this final piece in her Artfire shop, a Holiday Red, Green, and Silver Badge Holder"Silver Christmas trees? Fun, spirited Holiday Red, Green, Silver Badge Holder is made with silver Christmas trees and red, green, and silver pearls. Wooden silver painted trees are the focal point on this whimsical id badge holder. Look closely, and you will see clear crystals inside the trees and subtle gold splatters resembling garland. The shimmering red and silver plastic pearls are the same size and slightly larger than the smaller green. The lanyard measures 22 inches to the bottom of the badge hook. Work in retail? Make your customers smile wearing a holiday id badge holder."
You can also find Finding Charm on Facebook and her Blog.  So it seems that there is no reason NOT to visit Finding Charm...Sarah is everywhere!
Be blessed,
Debbi

  5. Oh wow! Such great finds from EACH shop! It always amazes me how sellers can have multiple shops and keep up with them all. I tried to open up a zibbet shop back when we started Etsy, and I couldn't promote both. We still have our zibbet storefront, but there's nothing listed there. I've been thinking of reopening...Maybe.

    The purple statement necklace that Hanna picked out is really pretty. And, because 'tis the season, I'm loving the last one too!

    Great feature!

    1. I had a shop on Zibbet also, for a short time. If you're looking for another selling site, I highly recomment handmadeartists.com
      It's a great up and coming new(er) site, and growing bigger and stronger every day. Our IT dept is on top of everything, and unlike some other sites, Andrew and Kimberly Kitchen are very active and responsive to the needs, and desires, of the artist members. You don't have to have a shop to join the forum, and that's my favorite part of the site. Just come and check us out.
