Treasury Challenge Runners Up List


 Bonjour! Welcome to my etsy store! :) I am Martine, Etsy addict and French Lit. Ph.D. student. (Yes, I'm crazy.). I love taking a break from my studies to make eclectic jewelry, accessories and found object art. My crafty work stems from my romantic love of vintage, my funky sense of humor and my undying devotion to fashion and being a bombshell, infused, more often than not, with nature and remnants of my early life growing up near the forest. *** Je parle aussi français! ***


I've been sewing since I was a little girl and my neighbor showed me how to make Barbie clothes. I've grown up a bit since then, and my love of sewing has also grown up, but the joy I take in creating things has never diminished.
I love taking fabric that was used for other purposes and finding a new way to use it! I love figuring out how to do something new with fabric - something I've never done before. I love that I never really know how some of my items are going to turn out. This is especially true for my fabric bowls - they seem to have a mind of their own; always a surprise when the item is completed. Face it - I love fabric no matter what!


Hi, I'm Michael. My Wife is Angela. Welcome to our shop. I have always loved jewelry. I always tried to buy my wife nice jewelry. When you shop at your local jewelry store, you just assume your getting a superior product. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Lets face it most people don't go into a jewelry store with a loupe. Here at Michaelangelas we have cut out the middle man. We have found buying and setting your own jewely to be a rewarding experience. We know alot about gemstones.......more than your average jeweler knows. We purchase gemstones in a parcel, identify them, carefully choose settings for them, hand set them, and present a beautiful piece of jewelry anyone would be proud to own. Difference is, you pay a fraction of what you would pay at a jewelry store. We do custom orders. We offer a 30 day money back guarantee. If you don't like your purchase, send it back, we will give you a full refund. The only way you will know for sure is to try us out. All our gemstones are genuine. We use only gold or .925 sterling in our settings, and most of all we love what we do. We would love for you to read feedback written by our wonderful customers... Michael & Angela Michaelangelas Genuine Gemstone Jewelry


 Hello! My Name is Gala! Thanks for viewing my shop. All of my handmade bags, scarfs, scarf-collars, hats and others felting works I display on my blog: More than welcome! Galafilc team

I've been seriously involved in textiles for about 20 years and have been dyeing for almost that length of time. The dyed items featured here are from our Serendipity range. Serendipity means 'the result of a happy accident', and these items from random dye pots are so very special and individual. Cotton and Viscose items are dyed using a combination of Fibre Reactive Dyes. Procion dyes are one member of this family, but I use other types too. All are colourfast and are disposed of in a caring manner with a keen eye on the environment. Silk and wool are dyed using acid dyes.

You can also catch me at, and at various other places on the internet. I occasionally appear on TV demonstrating the Embellisher and other machines, about which I have written a book and made 2 DVDs.

Tired of trying to sell my work in a crisis country, I am finding new selling opportunities worldwide.
I studied Fine Arts, I work as a graphic and web designer but I also keep on painting and sewing, trying to make a living as an artist.
