Since I'm a jewelry artisan... and I sell jewelry on Etsy, some would say that it's counter-productive for me to write about other jewelry artisans in the handmade community. But, the fact is, even above being a jewelry artisan, I'm a jewelry connoisseur.
I like jewelry.... to be completely honest, I LOVE jewelry. So when I come across someone as talented as today's artisan, I have to take a minute to admire.
Beautiful pieces. Quality craftsmanship. Spectacular vision. Licia Beads on Etsy has all of this and more.
This shop is filled with unique handmade jewelry from bridal pieces to everyday classics in pearls and gemstones. Each piece is colorfully beaded and some of the styles range from the free-spirited gypsy look to a few that are downright humorous.
Licia is an extremely talented woman in more ways than one. She also owns and runs a landscaping company, Ginkgo Landscape Design in Mukilteo, WA (20 miles north of Seattle) which is not far from where I live.
Between her shop and her business in landscaping I see someone who has a true love and passion for nature and flora and it's reflected in nearly every piece of jewelry in her shop.
I can't express enough the admiration I have for this woman and her shop as well as, for that matter, her landscape designs.
I encourage you to visit her shop as well as her landscape business page (linked above) and take a look through her shop! If you love nature as much as I do, you're sure to enjoy the browse.
