one of my favorites to make...

I love working with plastic bottles! They come in so many colors it really boggles my mind! One of my favorite types of earrings to make are these layered circle and square kind. The color combinations are endless (sometimes I feel overwhelmed!)! I also love to add a touch of sparkle by using a tiny silver circle from an aluminum can. They're chic and modern and will definitely make any lady stand out from the crowd!

Celebrating 2 years on etsy!!

Today is my 2 year anniversary on etsy!! I can't get over how fast time goes by! Etsy has been wonderful for my business, I owe a lot of great things to my etsy shop. I'll never forget how I heard of it...I was getting my teeth cleaned and I mentioned to the hygienist that I was starting my own art business. She asked if I ever heard of etsy, and I said no. I checked it out and immediately signed up. My pictures were horrible!! I'll never forget my first sale either (1 month after opening). I was so excited when I saw it! I've come a long way in these past 2 years, and I've been working extremely hard. My hard work is starting to pay off though. In my mind there is no such thing as luck, it's all about hard work and passion...

2 Liter Shamrocks

This is my latest shamrock creation...I cut shamrocks from a green 2 liter soda bottle then threaded them onto a bracelet! I could make matching earrings too!

Shamrock Bracelet...

Another St. Patrick's day item! I made this item using a milk carton and a clothes detergent bottle! Everything is cut with scissors by hand and connected with jump rings!

One of my lovely customers requested a pair of shamrock earrings made from a Mtn Dew can...I'm sure glad she did! Before this past weekend I never visited the 'shamrock' shape (not sure why!). I must say I'm having lots of fun with it and I'm coming up with lots of funky things! Ps: my mom's maiden name is O'brien!
