 Etsy is more than a marketplace: we're a community of artists, creators, collectors, thinkers and doers.Through the teams,we meet people with common interest and collaborate in several projects,weekly,monthly and yearly.
At our Palm Beach Team we are hosting a promotional week experiment.One day a month all members will be able to post one "ad" in the spirit of getting help and suggestions on improving their Etsy site.

This week the lucky members are : Christina

and DeAnne

I want to take the opportunity to show their wonderful goodies!
So there are my favorites....

Copper, Silver, Mixed Metal Cuff

A double cuff, secured with brass rivets, the bottom copper layer, hammered and bright, the second layer etched with an abstract design inspired by a friends Mehindi designs, then patina'd for contrast. And topped with a bright hammered sterling silver bezel filled to the brim with green resin.

So much going on in this piece, it's bold, it's subtle, its bright, its dark, it flashes, it hides.

and from Christina's shop a 

Calla Lily Gourd Vase

Beautifully handcrafted Calla Lily Gourd Vase. This one of a kind sculpture is crafted from two different gourd pieces to create an elegant art piece for that space on your shelf that needs a touch of nature.

Turning out the most coordinated Brides,Quniceañeras and Party Goers,from shoes to bags and now gloves!

My new collection of hand painted gloves is now available in many sizes for all the ladies.
The tattoo style design painted on these stunning gloves is the perfect accessory for a themed Wedding,Party,Affair,Gala or any other Event where you want to show style and glamour.
Gloves, much like your train and your veil, are considered formal wedding attire. 
The key to the level of formality is that the longer the gloves, the more formal they are.

I think that sometimes Brides and Girls want to wear an over the top accessory without damaging the skin,something matching a pattern or a theme that they can save as a keepsake forever.

They come in sizes:
2BL Wristlet or gauntlet (stops at the wrist)
8BL Quarter-length glove(To the elbows) 
12BL Short sleeve (shown in the pictures)
16 BL Opera-length (Right under the armpits).

Available in white (shown) and ivory satin.Tattoo Hand Painted Gloves
