Etsy Twitter Shop of the Week

For all the jewelry makers out there, I think you'll really appreciate RockisSupplies' etsy shop. She sells handcrafted metalwork findings & clasps, they look so professional but with such a unique look. They almost don't look handmade because they're so perfect! I love the idea of using another person's artwork to create another piece of artwork, if that makes sense. (In fact I will likely be telling my talented mom about this store for her jewelry endeavors as well!) I love the heart clasp pictured on the left. If only I had any talent with making jewelry whatsoever, I would definitely use this one! haha.

If you're interested you can also check out her blog here, or follow her on twitter here.

I found out about this shop from the etsy twitter team, which is just a really fun group and I recommend checking it out if you enjoy etsy & twitter.

I made the front page of etsy recently!

I'm all excited about it :) I didn't know about it when it happened and didn't even know I was in any treasuries or anything at the time. I just happened to notice on the craftcult heartomatic site that I'd gotten a lot of hearts at 1pm the day before... And as I was exploring the craftcult site I just stumbled upon their "featured" page. Is that new? I didn't even know about it, but it keeps track of old front page treasuries which is really cool. So here's some screenies from the craftcult page and the first pic links to the craftcult page where you take see the treasury bigger. Being on the front page is so exciting - it happened to me once before but at 3 in the morning! Hehe.
