April Artisans' Feature Week 3

This is the third week of Etsy artisan features. This week I am featuring Designs by Kari and Kreated by Karina.

Designs by Kari. This jewelry designer started when she was 10 making jewelry with her mother on Saturdays. Since then her her love for jewelry making has grown.

One piece that caught my attention right away was the Blue Turquoise Chrysanthemum Ring. This ring is a nice example of innovation in using findings in a different way. She used silver plated filigree and shaped it into a ring and then added a Lucite flower cabochon. The result was a really cute ring!
This ring is also available in other colors.

These earrings are called Angel Wings. She admits this is the first attempt using gold findings.

I think they are beautiful!

Throughout her shop you will find wonderful earrings, necklaces, and bracelets.

She also carries of few Breast Cancer Awareness pieces.

In addition to her jewelry, she also carries several findings and beads.

Come visit Designs by Kari. You are sure to find something special.

Remember Mother's Day is fast approaching.

Kreated by Karina. Her shop is filled wonderful soaps including whipped soap, soap tarts, petal soaps, and men's soap. She also carries solid perfume and lip balm.

A unique service; which I have not seen from other soapers, which she offers is Soap or Lip Balm of the Month (6 month subscription). You can even choose your own scents and flavors.

As mentioned; she sells Petal Soaps that you can buy for yourself or to promote your shop. You can have your shop name printed on the tag. What a great promotional tool for both shop owners! You can give a sample to your own customers (who will remember your sweet gesture) and Kreated by Karina might gain a new customer.
Mother's Day is coming soon. Maybe a gift or Soap of the Month from Kreated by Karina is the perfect gift for your mom. Come check out her shop.
