Let us welcome Deb, from ArtisticFlair to Pixe’s Picks!  Deb tells me she has  been crafting for as long as she can remember. “I started selling my jewelry at art shows before my son was born about 8 years ago. I went on a hiatus when my son was born and then slowly started taking ceramic and glass classes. I got serious about it again doing art shows about 3 years ago. I’ve been selling on etsy for just about a year now. ”

And this is how she got her start in her craft:  I have always loved to create and Artistic Flair is a name I came up with after delving into many different mediums of the art world. From years of jewelry making to learning the many techniques involved with ceramics and the use of my kiln, my interests took me to the wonderful world of glass fusing. I am fascinated with the way glass changes during the fusing process, the often unpredictable results and the beauty of the finished product.

We all want to know why Deb chose Etsy:  I was a member of etsy long before I started selling here. I really liked the site and what it had to offer. I started selling here as a means to get my things out in the cyber world.

And what is Deb’s fave piece in her shop:  My Audrey Hepburn piece:    She is the true definition of elegance and beauty – a timeless diva! I had so much fun creating this piece and was more than thrilled with the outcome. She will be hard to part with!

A Little Bit of Italy

Pixe’s Pick:  I was hard-pressed to decide on a favorite…Deb has some really great items in her shop!  Not only does she create these wonderful framed pictures, she also makes jewelry, cuff links,  and glass cabs!  I chose A Little Bit of Italy as my fave!   Being the good Italian girl that I am, I love the subject!  This is definitely a OOAK piece of art!

Let’s give a warm Pixe welcome to Andrea, from Nyblaque!  Andrea started crafting at the ripe old age of 15 by making jewelry pieces and drawing clothing designs as a hobby.  She tells me:   Well, I have been “hobby making” with jewelry for 17yrs but I decided to design jewelry as a business for 3yrs.

And this is why Andrea loves Etsy!  I found Etsy through a Google search of handmade online shops when I realized Ruby Lane was too expensive for me, and I love the community Etsy seemed to offer.  Plus, Etsy is based in my hometown,  NYC so that was a definite plus:)!

Andreas fave piece in her shop is the XOXO Wooden Key Necklace, even though she says she has a new fave every week!!   “I made it with these great wooden reproductions of vintage typewriter keys. I have already made earrings with then that sold like crazy in 6 weeks!”

Trimmed Bleached Peacock Feather Earrings

Pixe’s Pick:   Andrea has some really fantastic jewelry in her shop!  However, since I tend towards the natural and/or unusual,  I really love these  Trimmed Bleached Peacock Feather Earrings!  There is still some soft color to them, and they are really just gorgeous!  Any peacock would be proud to have feathers such as these!

These are Pixe’s Picks!  Two really cool shops that Etsy has to offer!!  Take a peek and see what other goodies they have to offer!!   Wishing you a wonderful, and peaceful day!!!
