Sparkling Treasures from Art Made by Tammy

I'm writing today to introduce you to another wonderful jewelry shop, ArtMadebyTammy on Etsy.  You'll find many very beautiful handmade jewelry creations at very affordable prices.  There are plentiful flowers, teardrops and unique lucite beads, fun fashion for many different tastes.  This is a wonderful place to shop for Mother's day gifts, there is so much variety.
Tammy has several very special shop sections, the first I'll mention is Precious metal art.  You'll find very lovely cast metal flowers,  all carefully hand painted for a one of a kind look, like the red poppy shown.  Not only will you find the usual earrings and necklaces that you might expect, there is a pretty selection of floral hair pins.  Need a gift for Mom, but she doesn't like jewelry? You will find beautiful flower bookmarks i Tammy's shop as well.  And don't forget to check out the SALE section, with many great handmade creations from which to choose.

I think my favorite section is Tammy's original art.  She has talent for hand painted  components too.  Look at this beautiful wild flower bead she created for this bracelet, a true one of a kind creation!

Stop by Art Made by Tammy to see more wonderful handmade jewelry and accessories.
You can visit her blog too for cool jewelry finds and other news. Happy shopping!

Creativity Abounds!

It's getting close to Mother's Day.  I know you men are famous for waiting til the last moment to shop, but you will miss out on some beautiful finds if you do.  Today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite shops, LittleBrownBird.  I've made several purchases from Mary, and each item arrived quickly and beautifully crafted.
Two of my friends had babies last year. I ordered these fine silver handprint earrings personalized and my friends were just delighted with them.  There is also a footprint pendant which would make another wonderful Mother's gift.
If you want a personalized gift, you need to order soon!  Of course there is a wonderful selection of earrings in many different flavors.  And you'll find a number of other great creations as you browse around the shop.... be sure to look for the pin-up girls!
You will find many beautiful pendants, many with a vintage flair like this  Blue Bird Pendant.    There are many different necklaces at LittleBrownBird,  I'm sure you'll find something that you will just love.

Mary is more than just a jewelry designer, she makes fabulous fabric hair accessories as well.  There are combs and hairpins and headbands.  I can't tell you how much I wish I had the kind of life where I could wear these beautiful flowers in my hair.

You'll be so happy that you stopped at LittleBrownBird, I guarantee it!
