Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry, Accessories and Gifts - A Rare Post by Leal

MysticWynd on EtsyToday's feature shop is run by an artisan that I spent a great deal of Linktime with online. We are both members of the Etsy Bloggers Team as well as mentoring members of the Boosting Etsy Shops Team on Etsy.

Both of these teams are geared towards helping promote others and helping other sellers "learn the ropes" of selling online. This is especially true for the Boosting Etsy Shops Team, where Karen works tirelessly to keep everything running smoothly both behind the scenes as well as up front and center for everyone involved.

Karen also runs her own shop on Etsy as well. MysticWynd on Etsy is filled with beautiful jewelry not to mention really impressive displays -of- that jewelry through her product photos as well. In fact, over the upcoming spring season, I hope to take a few lessons from her creatively inspired displays and try to incorporate them into my own picture taking endeavors.

Instead of being organized in the traditional (and often boring) sections of "necklaces, bracelets, earrings, etc", Karen has set up her shop in a fresh and inspiring collections of sections such as "Angels, Fairies and Fantasy" and "Floral, Forest and Butterflies" as well as many other themes.

This shop is a terrific place to stop this spring to refresh your jewelry selection with some new pieces or just a fun place to brows and pick up a couple new favorites to add to your collection.
