Introducing you to - CreativeOP

Hi There.....Are you a fan of crochet?

Aha and did you know that there is something like bead crochet too? So let me introduce you to CreativeOP. It's an Etsy shop that sells crochet bead necklaces and bracelets and knit clothing.

If you are wondering what bead crochet is....here is some background information πŸ˜ƒ

It's a crochet technique in wich you incorporate beads into fabric. There are published descriptios of bead crochet that date from around 1824, but it may very well have been common before that date. At the time it was considered to be more for the rich people. During the days of the great depression time for needlework got less and more inexpensive manufactured jewelry became available. In recent years the interest has revived as a hobbyist pastime.

The shop owner has been doing crochet for over 30 years. But when she saw a bead crochet bracelet on the internet about 3 years ago, she got inspired, and since then she has also been making these bead crochet necklaces and bracelets.

For her jewelry she uses cotton thread and Japanese beads and metal accessories. In time she also wants to start making decorations and gradually turn her hobby into a business.

Interested? Let me show you some of the lovely items she has in her shop 😊

Introducing you to - BlankCanvasbyBrandon

Hi There.....Do you like engraved items?

Wonderful then let me introduce you to BlankCanvasbyBrandon.

A shop where you can find unique items for all occasions. They specialize in wood working, wood burning and glass engraving. Recently they expanded the shop to include car decals and door mats as well 😊

It all started when in 2014 the shopowner recieved a wood burner & glass etcher from his parents as a christmas gift. Having a background in art, he figured he'd give it a go. He started making gift items for his friends and family. Sure enough many of them started asking for more pieces for their homes. This hobby and passion for art evolved into a business that this shopowner absolutely loves!

I think that is something a lot of Etsy shopowners have in common, the love and passion for their business.

With the help of his wife, the business evolved into something much bigger than he ever imagined. His wife, who is a stay at home mom, started to take over many aspects and continues to market, manage and aid in production of most items in the shop. Outside of Etsy he works full time as a financial advisor, but continues to work at his Etsy shop and passion at home.

Enough talking πŸ˜‰ Let me show you some of their creations

Introducing you to - KOSHA6

Hi There.....Do you like to accessorize  ?

Yes? Great.....so let me introduce you this week to KOSHA6 πŸ˜ƒ

The idea for the shop had been developing in the owners mind from 2016. Based upon experiences of a journey from Fashion to Yoga and evolved to combine those two. August 2018 KOSHA6 was officially born. It is a shop with craftsman yogic healing tools designed and wrapped in bohemian spirit, with the responsibility to always cause the least possible environmental harm.

That is a responsibility that keeps us all busy the latest years, and I really do think that is very important 😟

KOSHA6 aims to reclaim a new way of life, one that is rooted in yoga, culture, craft, community, green earth and handmade. It stands at a crossing of local, global, traditional, innovative, reinventing and contemparary. The shopowner believes in taking inspiration from our rich old culture and moving forward, and that Fashion has the power to change lives.

This jewelry has shifted Fashion to touching the soul instead of just the body and therefore is called  jewelry for body, mind and soul. They can be with yogic healing tools or with purposeful talismen designed with a bohemian look. The proces of creation is as precious to the shopowner as the production of a beautiful product.

Products made this way do so much more than just bring pleasure to the customer. They create a link between the user and the artisan, they keep help the traditional approuch to crafts alive and in continues evolution, and create an opportunity for the whole community and their welfare.

Here are some items I selected from this lovely shop 😊

Rudraksha Howlite Turquoise Mala, mala necklace



Amber stone wire wrapped pendant, unisex pendant



Antique Silver ancient goddess pendant , Yoga Pendant



Tourmaline Citrine Mala, Tourmaline mala, citrine necklace



Lava Red Tiger eye Buddha Necklace, obsidian buddha pendant

Rudraksha Chakra Mala, Mala, Rudraksha mala, chakra mala



Rudraksha Clear Quartz Mala, Tree of life, Necklace

See something you like? The collection is for those with a bohemian spirit and an eco-sensitive conscience and who love to have meaning behind everything they do or wear 😊

Hope you like my blogpost.....Until next time.....Have a great weekend

Crowdfunding Campagne - New Collection for BeadworkSeadbeady

Hi There.....Have you ever heard of crowdfunding ?

Crowdfunding is a way to raise money - mostly online through social media and crowdfunding platforms - with the collective efforts of friends, family, customers and individual investors.

I have been working together with Ulule to get a campaign going to get a new collection for my Etsy shop BeadworkSeadbeady. And it is almost ready to be launched now πŸ˜ƒ

What would that new collection be you might wonder. The money raised would be used mostly to buy more gemstone beads and crystals to upgrade some of my creations.

On Ulule you can find a lot of wonderful projects to discover and help realize. Since the launch in october 2010 already thousands of creative, innovative or community-minded projects have been financed through funders out of 193 countries.

If you are wondering how you can help? It is fairly simple: on each page on the right side you can find a list of the different amounts and the rewards offered in exchange for those amounts. Click on the amount you want to contribute. You will be asked to create an Ulule account in order to provide a secure environment for your payment.

I think that is a great way of funding with these rewards😊 You would actually be buying my jewelry at a discount.

Let me show you some of the rewards for funding my campaign

Celtic Knot Earrings in Black and Silver



Red Crystal Jewelry Bargello Beaded Necklace



Butterfly Jewelry Beadwork Necklace of own design



Blue Necklace for Woman Chunky Jewelry



Woman Jewelry Tassel Beaded Necklace



Off course if these are not the ones you want there is always the option to choose something else for the same amount. So are you interested or do you know anyone that could be interested? The campaign will only be running for 45 days so be sure to pass it on or even share if you want to help me reach the intented goal 😘

Hope you like my blogpost.....Until next time.....Have a great weekend
