Featured Etsy Artist of the Week: Vanessa of Designs by Vanessa
What made you get started in your business?: I have been crafting (sewing, scrapbooking, jewelry making, etc.) since I was little with my grandmother but it wasn’t until last month that I started selling my creations on etsy. I work in the foster care/adoption field and at times my job can be stressful. Etsy has provided not only a creative outlet for my work but also a stress reliever for my full time job.
Tell us about your favorite item currently listed in your shop: My favorite item in my shop would have to be my Beautiful Bloom Earrings: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=13341140
I fell in love with these aqua lampwork beads when I first saw them and I knew that they would make beautiful earrings. I love using Swarovski crystals in my designs because of how they sparkle in the light. These earrings are just very whimsical and feminine.

My Favorite from Vanessa’s Shop: While I do love Vanessa’s Beautiful Bloom Earrings, I have to say I am partial to the chandelier style of her Darling Dangle Earrings. They are perfect for an evening out or to dress up a pair of jeans.
