Canadian Etsy Giveaway #3

CLOSED
Handcrafted by Heather

With summer about to kick into high gear, we all have that special event on the horizon. Be it a wedding, graduation, family reunion, or just a special evening out with friends. Are you looking for that perfect accessory to go with your dress? An accessory that is as unique as you are?

Look no further!

Heather, who is the owner and creator of gorgeous pieces of jewelry at Canadian owned Etsy shop, Handcrafted by Heather, has your answers. You are going to be blown away as you look through her store.


How did your Etsy store come about?

"I actually started selling on line at the urging of friends and customers, we have a local Farmers Market, where each Saturday May thru December, I sell my creations."



How did jewelry making become your passion?


"About five years ago, I went into a Sears store, a beaded glass necklace caught my eye, the price tag was excessive, I though to myself, I can make that! So on it went, from commercial grade beads, I discovered handmade lampwork artist beads, and then I was hooked. Now almost all my creations are made with artist beads."



Come...... take a little peek at some of the beautiful creations available and waiting for you at Handcrafted by Heather.


Can't you just see yourself wearing this necklace with your favourite sundress, while enjoying a fun summer evening with friends?




How delicate and romantic is this?
Wouldn't this be the perfect accessory for that summer wedding?


What have are your upcoming plans at Handcrafted by Heather?

"This is it right now, a new endevour, a give away. I actually list a new piece as soon as one sells, I have a huge inventory, so if anyone has something they would like to see, just let me know!"

My favorite is the beach glass that you have in your post! I don't have an invitation currently to a beach party, but if I had that necklace I would certainly find one!!! We live about three miles from the Lake Michigan Beach. I just love the lake! It's constantly changing and constantly beautiful. This necklace would be a reminder of many, many hours spent playing, listening to the waves, swimming, sunning, enjoying the beautiful creation of the beach.

BUT since that's not an original one. Just so you know I spent way to much time at the etsy shop. I also love the black and white heart, oh, forgot the name brb. My Spotted Heart http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9861676 I have a dear friend who breeds dalmatians and shows them. Wouldn't that be a great gift for her? She could wear it to dog shows!

Your comment on the pearl necklace about how pretty it would be for a wedding got me thinking. I am attending my nephew's wedding later this month and it's an outdoor wedding. So I think the Pretty Glass Pearls set (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22931946) would be perfect for that!
