Those who know me know that I LOVE jewelry. I specifically LOVE handmade jewelry. So, of course, I'm a huge fan of Etsy and other handmade sites such as Zibbet and Artfire. I have store fronts on each but my Etsy store remains my favorite and most visited site. Here are my particulars if you would like to visit any of my sites: www.jillsjewelry.etsy.com; www.zibbet.jillsjewelry.com; and http://www.artfire.com/users/jillsjewelry.
One of my favorite ways of exploring Etsy is to pull up all jewelry on Etsy and then order it from highest to lowest price. The I've been known to scroll through the pages and actually look at each item. As of yesterday there were 2,050,003 items in the jewelry category. I probably do this about once per month. In addition to recharging my creative batteries, I just enjoy the amazing variety of creative endeavors that is reflected in the Etsy collection. Every time I think I have finally developed "my signature style," I look through what's available on Etsy and I see something totally different that I really like.
I began a new journey through Etsy yesterday and I thought I would show you a few of my favorites on this trip through. So far I've looked at 250 pages. Each page contains 40 items. You do the math...I have a long way to go. Sometimes it takes me a month or so to make it through. However long it takes me, I truly enjoy every minute.
Here is my new collections of favorites from the first 250 pages. Enjoy.
