From One Artisan to Another

One of the many advantages of Etsy.com (the online community in which I sell my designs) is the opportunity to meet other handcrafted artisans.  I enjoy looking at other artisans' designs for inspiration.  Also I like to support fellow Etsians when I am shopping for supplies for my designs.

I don't remember how I discovered Marie from Skye Jewels, but she is truly a gem!  She is a jewelry designer, scrapbooker, and creates these beautiful little charms.  These Ephemera charms are made on craft scrabble tiles with really unique images.

I was delighted that she made these fall foilage charms per my request!  I am hoarding them while I try to decide how to use them.  But one of them did make its way into this necklace...
