Wednesday Featured Artist - Leo and Junie

I met Christine on Facebook, through Love Link, and the name of her online store, Leo And Junie got my interest; what is she selling ? I'm not usually a curious person, but this time I couldn't figure out ( just from the store name ) what is her craft, her hobby. So I clicked the link and there I am, on Etsy, looking at her beautiful jewelry with a touch of vintage, like she  like to say.

 The first "thing" that catched my attention was a gorgeous pair of Garnet earrings ( maybe because Garnet is my birthstone ! ) handcrafted by Christine in her studio in eastern Pennsylvania. The rich berry color of the natural Garnet and the Sterling Silver findings make out of these earrings a very special piece of jewelry that can be worn anytime anywhere. If you decide that this is a piece that should not miss from your personal collection, here is the direct link to the listing.

 Another piece that I want to mention here is  this beautiful Vintage Inspired Birdcage Flower necklace handcrafted in brass and featuring a birdcage pendant with a fuschia accent flower on a small link chain. The flower is wire wrapped and is having in the middle a light pink Swarovski crystal. The total lenght of the necklace is about 18'', and it will be delivered to you in a gift box or tin.

 Among so many wonderful pieces in her store, it was hard for me to decide which ones to feature here. But for the last item I decided to go for a very simple but elegant earrings in Sterling Silver. Delicate and precious, these earrings are made with 4 mm freshwater blue pearls, 6 mm Czech fire polished glass dark amethyst purple beads, Bali sterling silver daisy spacers and all sterling components or findings. Total lenght - 1 1/4'' . These absolutely lovely earrings are just 18.00 $, can you believe that ? You can make them your own or read the full description here .

Christine opened her Etsy store in January of last year ( so she's celebrating her first Etsy "birthday" this month), but she is an experienced jewelry artisan, crafting for the last six years. Take a minute of your time and visit her, and if you have any questions, she will be more than happy to answer you.
