Wednesday's Pixe's Picks

Welcome to this today's Pixe's Picks! Today, PoshMommaStore is being featured! So...Kick back, relax, enjoy the read!! Comments are always welcome! The artists love to hear what you have to say!!! This week, I'm going to do something a little different...I'm only featuring one artist today, and will feature another artist tomorrow.


Unlocking Purity

PoshMomma has been crafting for as long as she can remember. She tells me: I've been a crafter as far back as I can remember. I actually remember trying to sell painted rocks to neighbors when I was in my early years of grade school (I don't think I ever sold a rock, surprise). All of my birthday cards and holiday cards to people always had to be homemade and I've always preferred giving gifts that I made myself over bought ones, even if they were really crappy. I can not remember a time when I was not crafting in one way or another.


PoshMomma says this is how she got started making jewelry: I began making jewelry in middle school. It started as friendship bracelets, then hemp necklaces. I fell in love with beads and charms through making these hemp necklaces. While in my early years of college, I bought a tanning salon and decided to sell my attempts at fashion jewelry. They ended up being a huge hit and it has grown from there.


Why did you pick Etsy for your shop?: I think I chose Etsy for the same reason everyone else does: I became obsessed with everyone else's stuff. I stumbled upon Etsy on someone's blog and had to open my own shop. I had not made jewelry in years until that point. I put my scrapbooking away and pulled out my stash of beads and headpins. From there, PoshMommaStore was born.

What is your favorite piece in your shop and why? My absolute favorite piece that I've probably ever MADE is the "Unlocking purity" necklace that is in my shop. There is just something about it that I love immensely. I love the combination of silver and pearls, and keys are just so mysterious to me. I really almost hate to sell it but I want someone else to love it as much as I do, and I'll just make another one if I can't bear the pain. Ha!

Wine Cork Earrings with Multi-Colored Beads

Pixe's Pick: PoshMomma not only offers really cute jewelry at affordable prices, she also offers wine tasting cards, which I think is a great idea, especially since I enjoy going to local wineries and sampling the vino! My favorite item is also wine inspired! I love the Wine Cork Earrings with Multi-Colored Beads I found this to be a clever way to re-use the corks! The colorful beads really make these earrings stand out!

That's today's Pixe's Picks! Please take a moment to visit PoshMommaStore to enjoy all she has to offer!

Have a wonderful and peaceful day!
