Vicky and Julian from KNOTSANDSPARKLEZ says
I am a micro macrame artist I hand knot jewelry and accessories with colorful, tiny cords, and incorporate other materials in my pieces to make it more contemporary. My pieces range from classy and elegant to everyday wear, and I often work with custom orders.It is different from regular jewelry as its main component are cords, and glass beads which allow those with metal sensitivities to wear it with no problems. My earrings are also extremely light weight so those who love larger earrings can do so without the added strain on their lobes.In addition I also write tutorials for those who wish to learn. I am sharing is my David Bowie tribute wrap bracelet in black and silver which I designed myself.

I am an illustrator and visual artist from Chile and I sell my illustrations here.
For now I have a lot of notebooks/sketchbooks for sale. Printed and handmade ones. I hope within time I can upload more products.
What makes my notebooks specials? I thinks it is that the handmade ones are painted directly on the covers, so when you buy one, you are also buying an original painting. I also try to paint a lot of local fauna, so people can learn to identify them, and as most of the buyers here are from the United States, I have a few birds from there.

Welcome January New Team Members

Contributor post by Dawn from DeeDeeDeesigns
Please join us in welcoming our new members for January to our fantastic team! Visit their shop, fave some items, maybe even share some shops/items on your social media channels!!
I recently joined the team so I take this opportunity to introduce myself!

After spending 3 weeks in the Southern Hemisphere (New Zealand) during October/November 2016, I learnt that many European and American Christmas traditions revolve around “our” winter season such as hot drinks, roasts and other cold-weather fare. These drinks/food are not so tempting to drink/eat during a hot Summer Day such as New Zealand during December.

I now fully understand the meaning of “Christmas in July” so that also people living southern hemisphere can enjoy Christmas, during their winter time.

Hello all, I am Julie and owner and designer of EveryoneLovesGifts. I love making all kinds of jewellery but my passion is for awareness jewellery such as Fibromyalgia (which is an illness that I have). I think it is important to raise awareness also 10% of my Fibromyalgia Jewellery goes to Fibromyalgia Research via my JustGiving page. This piece is an Invisible Awareness Necklace as Fibromyalgia is called  ‘invisible’ to others.

Lauren Vanhemert from BellaBolsaDesigns says

My name is Lauren and I am a designer in Raleigh, NC. I live in Raleigh with my two teenage children and wonderful husband (with whom I celebrate 20 years of marriage with at the end of this month). I am new to etsy and hoping to build up my business here. I used to have a studio in Downtown Raleigh in a co-op surrounded by other wonderful creatives. I know work out of my home studio and have missed the fellowship of other artists, so I am thrilled to have found this wonderful, supportive, fabulous community! I am inspired by ephemera and love to incorporate ephemeral items (like the 1915 Alice in Wonderland movie poster on my original fabric designs). I think the fabrics make my bags the most special, since most of my fabrics are designed by me. Thanks for including me on this team!

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeSupplies says

I am not a new team member but have recently opened a new shop and my new shop has joined the team! I am selling supplies for jewellery making, crafts, fashion design, scrapbooking, quilting – the limits are the imagination!

I opened this shop because I make jewellery and have lots of bits and pieces in my studio and wanted to share them … hopefully they will come in handy for some of your craft projects!

The beads I am sharing come in red, pink and purple and have a beautiful oil slick shimmer to them when reflecting light – they are a lovely bead!

My name is Maia and my husband name is Valentin. We are new to Etsy and we hope to build our business here. Our passion for sewing and modern home decor fabrics determined us to start creating decorative pillow covers.

Hi I’m Misty from Killeen, TX. I am new to Etsy and trying to figure this whole thing out! I turned to crochet after someone very near to my heart was diagnosed with breast cancer and crochet became my therapy. I originally donated all of my hats to our local cancer centers. After a lot of persuading from friends and family I decided to open my shop. I still donate hats on a monthly basis and try to engage children in the fiber arts. There are some AMAZING people here on Etsy that will take us newbies under their wing like LoveandPetFurCrochet!

My Snow Princess Hat is one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it!

My name is Rose Rombough. I believe I may have joined the team around the beginning of the month or the end of September but since I am still learning the ins and outs of Etsy and the various apps, I have been slow to participate. However, I am very enthusiastic to become an active participant.

We are couple that loves creating and exploring new things. Most of our inspiration comes from nature: Wild forests, beaches, rivers, ancient myths and magic. We use different techniques and materials to make our products. Most of our goods are collected from sandy beaches of Baltic sea, deep and dark forests in Lithuania, or recycled from other things to give them second life.
Items we make is unique and there will be no same item in the world, our shop is small and it is because we do not make huge amount of things. Each little piece first created in head, then drafted on paper and finally made by hands using lots of love and skills, such as pyrography, carving wood, engraving stone, leather working, flint knapping and more.

These three nalbinding needles are made from very special oak tree that has been hit by the lighting but still grows in biggest lake island in Lithuania called Astravos island. Oak is one of the sacred Baltic three.
Oak is associated with spells for protection, strength, success and stability, healing, fertility, health, money, potency, and good luck. Oak has been considered sacred by just about every culture that has encountered the tree, but it was held in particular esteem by the Indo-Europeans, Norse and Celts because of its size, longevity, and nutritious acorns.

Chaton Noir, is an accessory brand looking to express the love for animals in each and every one of their products.
Chaton was born out of my love for Mafalda, my cat.
Our designs come from here on and throughout the exploration of the pet universe, their mischief’s, gestures, games, elegance and all the feelings they generate in us.
All our pieces are carefully handcrafted, with the same love we profess to our little animals. Necklaces, bracelets, rings, purses and bags, all invite us to communicate that special bond.
Chaton Noir is therefore a different and delightful option in the accessories market, adapting and highlighting any look. It’s ideal for the laid back, audacious woman who is conscious of every detail and has her own style.

I technically joined in August, but as I was away now is my first chance to say hi and introduce myself. I’m Steph a screen printer and mum to one with another on the way in 6 weeks. I design and print homewares that I would love to have in my own home and hope that others will love them as much as I do.
My favourite item in my shop at the moment is this Breton shirt print. I am obsessed with all things stripes, especially stripe tops…we all know they are the unofficial Mum uniform after all!

Hello everyone, I am Julie. A Mum of a very active 8 year old. Unfortunately when my daughter was born I encountered a few issues which resulted in a few operations and unable to have anymore children.
Because of this and unable to work in employment I created EveryoneLovesGifts. I make jewellery from a range of materials but I do love my pearls as they are so priceless.
My featured item is a lovely green pearl bracelet that is perfect for teenagers and adults alike. Due to the greens in the bracelet it makes a perfect gift all year round especially with the sparkle.

Hello, I have just joined. Yay. I create bespoke hoop art & jewellery.

I’m Jessica of Art by Jessercat. I specialize in old fashioned spun cotton Christmas ornaments and cake toppers. I also work in clay on occasion. My shop and techniques come from a love of the holidays, art, and necessity. Other than Clara and her Nutcracker (featured in my profile picture) I’d say my favorite item in my shop would have to be Krampus. I love creating his goofy face.

Hi Teamies! My name is Brenda and my best seller is a fireplace blowpipe that makes starting your fire in the fireplace, wood stove, fire pit or camp fire a snap. It’s fun to use! Trust me on this one, everyone will want a turn trying it! It works amazingly well the next morning when restarting your fire that has a few leftover embers too. I named this tool a BetterThanBellows.
In addition, I make Christmas wreaths and Mistletoe Kissing Ball ornaments out of up cycled pickle balls, tennis balls and golf balls. www.etsy.com/listing/259090222
Thanks for looking and good luck and blessings to all!
