I get excited whenever I notice or hear about a new shop on Etsy. I try to spend a part of each day checking what my favorite artisans are up to (I know, I know, it's hard work but I refuse to back away from a challenge LOL).
Sometimes I luck in and notice a brand new shop...
|My personal pick: Teal Leaf Bracelet featuring artisan ceramics|
Other times I hear about it from the source! Allow me to ring the bell and sound the trumpet! The lovely Lynda Carson has been selling her hand-crafted jewellery for several years in boutiques near her California home. As of three days ago, lovers of handmade can now find Lynda's creations at her very own Etsy shop!
I have been following Lynda's story as she stretches her creative muscles on her blog Fresh Baked Designs. Lynda is also an avid traveler who lends her talents to fundraising for a community in the far-off African country of Ghana. Many of her designs have featured the amazing hand-painted glass beads of that region.
I hope you will all join me in welcoming Lynda to the Etsy community. Lynda invites everyone to check out her shop and her blog (*read this post for a special bonus*).
