The new ETT SOTW is Honey from the Bee, owned and operated by fellow etsy twitter team member Janet. Janet makes exquisite jewelry (inspired by nature and travel) that includes earrings, brooches, bracelets and necklaces, most of which are one-of-a-kind! No wonder her customers often feel she's created a piece "just for them."
Janet describes her process and materials ..."I love gemstones for color and pattern. I love metals like silver, copper, brass and bronze for how I can manipulate it into a wearble piece of art. I love incorporating found objects and vintage parts for the patina and stories they have within them. Quality means a lot to me. It's in my nature to do so, but it's also because it's what annoys me most about the products for sale in many stores today. I take care to insure you'll get lots of wear out of the piece that spoke to you and it will have value to another some day down the road, too."
I would love to pass on either of these beauties to a daughter-in-law some day! To my son...Hint, hint!
