Check out My Pretty Treasury Lists!

For those not in the know: Etsy is an online shopping center for handmade items, vintage, and supplies. One of the many varied ways to shop on Etsy is through community curated "treasury" lists - compilations of items for sale on Etsy that last about 2-3 days.

Here are my two current ones (link won't be good once the lists expire) - I am really happy with how they turned out! Click on them and you can see all the amazing items up close and link to each one individually! :)

How did you find Etsy?
I was working at a bead store about 2 years ago, and one of the regular customers came in talking about how she had started selling her items on Etsy, she gave me the website, and I looked into it. It took me a few weeks to get up the courage to actually list my first item, but I am very glad that I did!

What do you love about Etsy?
The thing that I love most about Etsy is the support and encouragement that I have received from the friends and contacts that I have met here. I have defiantly made some great friends that I will keep for the rest of my life. The camaraderie and support that I have received is wonderful! (Hehehe the money isn’t too bad either...lol)

What is your favorite dinner?
Well, there are so many things that I love to eat, but I would have to say that a really good steak and baked potatoes has got to be my favorite. mmmmmmmmmm, YUM-O!

What would you like us to know about your craft/shop?
Everything is very different and unique. This allows me to express my creativity. I have never been formally trained, so no one has told ‘you can’t do that’ so I just do what the heck I want to! Also, all of the rings are opened and closed individually by my own little hands. This is a serious time killer that a lot of people don’t appreciate, but it’s very therapeutic for me after a long hard day at the office.

If you could take an all-expenses paid trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?
That would be a toss up... I would either got to Ireland or Scotland. I absoulty would love to go on a horseback riding treck thru the lands of either country. They are both so beautiful, and so steeped in history and lore.

What do you love about what you make/sell?
I love the fact that chainmaille is so different and unique. You don’t see a lot of chainmaille out there, and it is very satisfying to me to make something so different. There are over 300 different weaves that you can make, and many more that you can design yourself. Just by changing the size of the rings, you can change the look of the entire piece. Not to mention all of the different metals and colors that the rings come in. Niobium, Sterling Silver, Gold, Gold Filled, Aluminum, Anodized Aluminum, Brass, Bronze, Copper.... and the list goes on...lol

What is your favorite way to relax or unwind?
Believe it or not, one of my favorite ways to relax is to sit in front of the TV with a new batch of rings, and just sit there and open and close the rings. Then I get the fun job of piecing all of those individual little rings into some new creation! Deciding which colors go best with each other, and what weave would work best for the picture in my head... Very fun and very relaxing for me!

What do you like to shop for on Etsy, even if it is just browsing, not buying?
hehehehe, I am a handmade soap addict! I never tried handmade soap until I started shopping on Etsy, and I have to say I will never buy another bar of store bought soap! I love to look thru and see what great concoctions the wonderful soap sellers on Etsy have come up! Also, I have a serious addiction to anything with a hedgehog on it! LOL

What is your most unique pet?
Wow, I have had several…. The most recent ones have been a lil mouse that I named Fwed. She was a sweetie, loved running on her wheel. She would get out in her cage and tease the cats! Just running around and playing, knowing that the cats couldn’t get to her!
Then there was the hedgie that I had. His name was Acheron. He was born here in my house, and when he was old enough he went to a good home in Texas. While he was there, some bad stuff happened to his human family, and we ended up making an emergency run down to Texas to bring him back home. That was one heck of a trip! Driving 20 hours straight to get there, picking him up, and then turning around and driving another 20 hours to get home. But Acheron was defiantly worth the trip!
