Our Garden of Joy Aqua Made It on the Front Page of Etsy

Yesterday we had a wonderful surprise! Our Garden of Joy Aqua bracelet made it on the front page of Etsy. It is every seller's hope to get noticed on Etsy and being on the Front page is the ultimate in your marketing efforts. Thanks to Maureen of QueenBeanJewels, we got the ultimate spot on Thursday, September 17.

About QueenBeanJewels
"I have always been creating something as long as I can remember. After attending an Art College in Pasadena, I have been blessed to make a living with graphic and web design, with a side of jewelry design.

My other favorite thing is to create jewelry and mixed media art. I create pieces using sterling silver, PMC (I am a certified teacher), glass (beads, fused glass and stained glass), and collage and altered art. If it isn't naile down, I tend to paint, antique or cut it up in some manner."

GesturesPhoto - Featured Artist of the Week

"I live and work in Boise, ID. Most of photographic work is done in the Boise area, but I do travel further afield when time allows. All prints are created at a professional lab and all pieces are hand-assembled at my studio in Boise.

In my studio I create both portraits as well as art, which adds a little something special to each. The "Art of Being" section is the artistic output of the portraits I shoot.

My photography allows me to spend my days seeing the beauty and good in life, rather than focus on the negative. It’s not always easy but it’s strong medicine to make a conscious choice to turn off the news and look around for something pretty.... and so worth the effort."
