Etsy BEST Team Feature - January 31, 2012

I try to learn something new with every blog, today I looked up how to do screenshots. At this point my li'l black MacBook has monitor envy. Even when I changed the screen resolution, I couldn't get the whole treasury in the shot. HOWEVER I do provide links to Treasury in the caption of each Treasury's screen shot at the end of this blog. DO CLICK on the captions to see the details of some great work from my Besties on Etsy!

Yes, it's time for another BEST Team Feature! But first a quick update from Joy Hand Painted Silk Studio: 
Spring Romance Collection for circa.
The Spring Romance Collection is headed to circa. an urban artisan lifestyle store in the historic Fondren district in Jackson, Mississippi. This is Joy Hand Painted Silk's very first trunk show, and we hope it will be the first of many! If you are near Fondren or have friends in the area, please help spread the word and send them in to see and buy from the exclusive merchandise available during the month of February.
Spring Romance Collection, February 2-28 at circa.
I'm going to show off some of the fabulous items made by my besties as featured in etsy treasuries. Etsy says this: "Treasury is an ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery comprised of lists of items. Members can feature their favorite items, items selected on a theme or whatever they like. Any Etsy member can create a Treasury list, and there is no limit to the number of lists you can create. You can edit your lists as often as you desire, and post comments to other members' lists."

Eudora Whimsical Neo-Gothic Necklace
PoisonGarden is a collaboration of three artisans and right now they are featuring a very special Valentine's Day Sale! ALL orders will receive a free 4 Pack of Rose Candle Tarts and orders over $15 will receive free shipping! I fell instantly in love with "this lovely Gothic butterfly necklace (that) sparkles like moonlight dancing across inky waters. The detailed scroll-work of the wings is reminiscent of old wrought iron gates." Follow Poison Garden online: Blog | Tumbler

Blue White Wear creates necklaces, bracelets and earrings with an oriental touch. A modern version of East meets West. I adore these 1/2 inch faux cinnibar jacket earrings featured in the timely treasury "Tiger Makes Way for Dragon". Wear them to welcome the Year of the Dragon or for Valentines Day. Follow Blue White Wear online: Blog |Twitter
Red Oriental Jackets by Blue White Wear
Although cinnabar, also called Chinese lacquer, is a traditional Chinese handicraft, it is now made with a dyed red resin or wood carved to resemble the motifs and does not actually contain the red mineral cinnabar.

Patty's Dream Designs loves to create jewelry that you will love to wear! Here's a beautiful necklace and earring set in the BEST Team Treasury "Star Struck, Sun Struck, Moon Struck Treasury by our BEST Team mate Annie Oliverio "Inspired by the wide open sky of Oklahoma - a sprinkle of bright stars against the black sky; a big disk of moon and the shining sun."
Blue Pearl & Gold Necklace & Earring Set
This pretty set includes an 18 inch necklace with blue glass pearls, gold leaf bead caps, gold bugle twists and has a lobster claw clasp. The earrings have glass pearls and gold leaf bead caps on gold hoops attached to ear wires. Follow Patty online: Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Stumble Upon

As part of my BESTeam commitment, throughout the month I will feature one or more of the fabulous shops and talented artisans who comprise the team.  What is BESTeam? It's the Boosting Etsy Shops Team and our goal is to give support to each other and to help promote each others' Etsy shops. If you are an Etsy shopowner and are interested in learning more about BESTeam, please visit the team page on Etsy.
