West Coast Crafters Spotlights #3

Firstly, please let me apologize for not posting for 3 days. I had planned to take Friday off, and post on Saturday. For some reason I completed the post and navigated away from it before I saved it and in disgust, I went away to do housework, as it seemed less stressful :)

Remember to take a ride on the Crazy Train: Today features 3zArt and some beautiful items. Tell me which is your favorite on my blog and you may win a Swarovski Crystal earring pair or silver plated bracelet. The ArtFire Jewelry Design and Jewelry Supply Guild is hosting a Spring Cleaning treasure hunt which began on the the 17th.

Here is a link to our West Coast Crafters guild roster.

The next two studios on our roster are:

Bearchick and Craftnique. Bearchick says, "Bear Chick is taking a vacation with The Husband and The Mom. The shop will be back up on Sunday, April 26. Please visit then and see what treasures Bear Chick has to offer," so we'll visit her studio later in the month.


Craftnique says of the studio, "Hello and welcome to my studio. Here you will find a little of this n that.
I like to think of it as a small gift shop where you will find a variety of handmade items.

Thank you for stopping by.

I will ship International just contact me for shipping information "

"I have a variety of creative hobbies,
decorative/tole painting, polymer clay, jewelery, paper, sewing, woodwork andnature, recycling to name a few!!.
I was lucky enough to grow up in a very creative family. We were always learning something new.
Creating is my therapy
I have a supportive husband, children and grandchildren that help out when I need them.
What a fun way to spend the day..

Please convo me if you have any questions
also at and"


Next in the roster is Crafty_Business. Of her studio she says, "Hi and welcome to Crafty Business -- where it's all about the sparkle. Okay, it's about color and beauty and originality too. I absolutely love sparkling crystal, so I feature genuine Swarovski crystal products. Grab some beads to create your own special design or check out our hand crafted pieces. But be sure to come back and visit often because I'll be adding to the inventory and changing things up as often as I can."

Inspired by many years of watching and helping my mother create a wide variety of crafts, I've always been fascinated by the beauty, fire and elegance of Swarovski crystals. When I began to bead more often, I found myself repeatedly being drawn back to the sparkling charm of crystals. So, in this my "second career", I offer quality, hand-crafted jewelry, as well as crystal and semi-precious beads for other artisans and designers.

My first love is the ocean but I find beauty just about everywhere I look!"

So let's explore the studios of our guild members of the guild by visiting their shop and letting them know what's best about it.

Remember to note here what you found the most extraordinary so that you might win the earrings or bracelet (gentlemen, I have one for you as earrings though. I haven't bought stud findings yet.).

I hope you enjoy today. Have fun!
