Meet Etsy Jewelry Artist: ImpressionsByMona

Even before I'd heard of Etsy I was into buying handmade. While I rarely sold any of my own handcrafted items on Ebay, I bought items from other artists. One of my favorite sellers was MonaDesigns786. She is the epitome of great customer service - and went the extra mile for me on many a purchase over the years. On top of all of that - she's a fantastic artist and a really neat lady. Last year after I discovered Etsy I wrote to her to try to convince her to make the move. Thankfully she has finally joined our fabulous Etsy community...



Due to health problems Mona was forced to retire early and become a stay at home Mom. "Just 'being' a housewife/mom was not my cup of tea, so decided to convert my hobby into a trade," she explains. She has been selling her earthy spiritual jewelry on Ebay for awhile, but her Etsy shop is brand new. "It's been 2 years since i started making jewelry pieces and now (I) am surrounded with beads all the time," she jokes. "Mostly colors, textures, and shapes inspire me to play with the beads and make (them) into jewelry pieces," she says. Like me, she hopes to promote acceptance of all cultures and faiths through her art. As for Etsy she says, "I like what I see and the way all Etsians are connected. I feel friendship already." She hopes the circle of friendship will grow bigger each day. Please check out her shop: http:// ImpressionsByMona.etsy.com
