$15 gift certificate giveaway- Friday Feature Firefly Myst Artisan Jewelry

Happy Friday! I'm thrilled to introduce to you another great etsy seller- Firefly Myst. This lovely shop sells beaded jewelry and supplies to make your own. Let's take a look at some of her creations.










There's a matching pendant to these earrings HERE

Here is what Collette, the owner behind Firefly Myst had to share about herself and her business.

I started my business Firefly Myst Artisan Jewelry about 4 years ago. My husband, who has been a potter for over 35 years, said that he could make me some raku and stoneware beads and pendants. He suggested that maybe I could design some jewelry with them.


Well, at the time I thought, "Me?Design jewelry?", but I thought I would give it a try. So I began designing bracelets and necklaces using his work, as well as, semi-precious stones, lampwork glass and sterling silver. I found that I really enjoyed it. So with a little encouragement from my husband, I decided to share a booth with him at a summer art show. My first show was a success so I now continue to do local art shows in Michigan.

In the summer of 2009, one of my jewelry designs featuring my husband's raku beads and heart pendant won third place and was featured in the Summer 2009 "Stringing Magazine". We called our piece "Creative Conspiracy".

I recently started creating my own beads and pendants to use in my work. I love making them!
I wanted my work to have a wider venue, so I opened my own Etsy shop where I sell not only my jewelry but also jewelry supplies!

Collette is generously giving away a $15 gift certificate to one of my readers! And she's offering a 15% discount off anything in the shop with the code FIREFLYMYST. The code will be good until January 31, 2012.
