Posted in Etsy Promotions with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2009 by faeriemajikk

I have not had a chance to do a review of an Etsy shop for ages and really want to do them regularly so I think that I may just have Mondays as my Etsy Seller Spotlight.

Ok this seller that i have chosen is RED SUEDE KITTEN and the Artist behind the creations is Melita, she is a talented Australian that creates the most amazing Felted creations:

Felt Cloud Brooch / Pin - Butter Berries

The image above is just amazing and my favourite piece out of her Felt Cloud Brooches, it’s so vibrant and intense in colour, just beautiful!!

A little about how it’s made:

“To make a Felt Cloud, I first create hand rolled pieces of sushi felt, using the wet felting technique. These pieces are then joined together and are backed with felt sheet. Metal findings are used to complete the pieces. Each piece is lovingly and carefully constructed.”

Buckle Bug Brooches

You have seriously got to see these Bug Brooches…they are so adorable aren’t they??

I just think they are the cutest thing!

Asymmetrical Felted Yarn Ball Necklace - purple, lavender, burgundy

Asymmetrical Felted Yarn Ball Necklace - purple, lavender, burgundy

This necklace is unusual and the colours are gorgeous and very earthy…i love this one!

What Melita says about this piece:

“An environmentally friendly piece that uses up materials that would otherwise be unused or go to waste!”

In a world where everything is disposable this is a wonderful and truly amazing thing she is doing.

There seems to be a lot of waste now a days and if someone like Melita can create truly amazing and unusual pieces of Art from something that would be discarded without another thought…well to me that is just Fantastic.

So go and take a peek at Melita’s work:

Nerys Purchon is an Australian seller on etsy, if you have never seen her etsy store Nerys Purchon’s Bazaar well then you are certainly missing out.

Nerys sells some wonderful items that would make fabulous gifts for that special someone or for yourself.

This is one of her creations, AUTUMN BAG

Nerys’ bags are not just simply bags to cart around all of your unmentionables, these bags are absalutely amazing.

This Autumn bag is a freeform bag and what does Nerys say about these…

“Freeform bags take up to a month to make so some patience is needed but at the end of that time you will own a bag that is totally unique.”

The freeform bags are not just bags, they are works of Art, please click on the picture to take a closer look, so much attention is applied, not just in the way they are made but how she adds her own special touch.

And now for a brighter, spring bag.

This one is my favourite!

RUFFLES

This bag has been needle felted, It looks absalutely gorgeous, green is certainly a fave colour of mine, I just love the design and the shape of this fancy little creation.

This bag is knitted from 100% Jo Sharp Chartreuse pure wool and then felted. It is embellished with wild needle felted flowers. It will last for many, many years as the felting process makes a very strong, hardwearing fabric”

Nerys not only adds an organza bag filled with lavender and herbs into each bag but she also Scotch Guards her bags! Now if you go to buy a lounge suite they don’t even do that for you…wow!

Well i am sure you have all been amazed by these gorgeous bags but I am not finished because not only does Nerys create gorgeous bags but she is also an expert with herbs and essential oils with forty years experience:

“I have been working with essential oils for forty years—I’ve written several books about them and used these miraculous essences in countless ways. Their power and versatility never cease to amaze me and I’m sure that you will benefit from their use.”

Because Nerys has so much experience working with essential oils you can be sure that you will get as much information about these wonderful oils she has.

Pictured is a set of three oils, she also sells them individually.

If you would like to know more about essential oils then why not get yourself an E-Book?

” As far as possible, many of us prefer to take charge of our own health and the health of our family.
Good health is often a question of prevention of ill health by adopting a healthy lifestyle, but accidents happen, stress happens and then we succumb. ”

I urge you to take a look at Nerys Purchon’s Etsy store, there is something there sure to delight, for those who love art that is also functional, beautiful scents or would like to try using herbs in everyday life for themselves this is the store for you.
