Etsy and October finds...

I thought it was about time I popped a few bits and bobs back into my Etsy shop. I'd stopped selling there earlier this year because it's such a big huge massive marketplace that you really need to renew items every day for them to get seen, or pop up anywhere in the first few pages. And my folksy and stand alone shops were providing more than enough sales to keep me busy.

(My stand alone website)

However, the think I really like about Etsy is that it's such a big huge massive marketplace that you can find some amazing makers and items on there. I like the treasuries, and I like the fact that its global.

So what if I don't sell too much on there, it's quite nice just to be a part of it, and be inspired by all the clever people on there.

Speaking of clever folk.... I found these lovely handmade goodies recently and thought you might like them too....

I've been making a few new bits this week, including these earrings... 

I have to admit I'm a little bit in love with these earrings!

I'm loving seeking out new crafty goodies - post a link to any good finds in the comments below - I'd love to check them out.

What's new for October?

My lovely dapped chain finally arrived..........and I love it.

Can't wait to get making some lovely new necklaces with it, but in the meantime, I have a plain dapped chain on right now. Who needs gems when you have this gorgeous dapped silver?

I also just bought this beautiful druzy window cushion cabochon. Oh. My.

I think it's going to be a ring, but it's a one of a kind, so I need to think about this one........

And I also just got these stunning green tourmaline stones, 6mm, made into dinky studs. I love 'em. Not on the shop yet but they should be tomorrow.... the stone is that little bit special, and I'm not sure I'll be getting any more of them. But we'll see - I'd love to know what you think of them!
