Etsy Featured Shop - Bungelowjame Jewelrey designer and inventive creator

It was very difficult for me to pick who I was going to feature as my 1st Etsy shop blog post. There are so many wonder and creative people and artisans on Etsy that I have come to know and love. But my intentions are to have each and everyone featured.

     But, I must start with the one who's shop I have spent most of my time and money in. That shop is ga_search_type=seller_usernames .
     Jamie Creason resides in California  and is also conscious of the mark she will make on the plant as am I. She recycle's and reuses everything she can, which is good for us all.  Jamie has been selling on Etsy since November of 2009 where she is making a name for herself one piece at a time. Like myself she loves to garden as well and judging by her garden pictures she gardens as creatively as she designs her jewelry pieces.

In Jamie's words she has always been creative, and has love to paint and take photos. She is inspired by everything "vintage." Here Granmama loved her "costume" jewelry and those pieces are what she is using as inspiration for her designs (along with some funky stuff just for fun). She loves to garden, cook and bake, and also loves the beach, boogie boarding and snow. She lives in Northern you can do that all in one day if you so wish.

     I want to start off showing you some custom designs she has created for me. This is the most recent piece I purchased. Jamie had the turquoise brooch listed in her shop as a necklace. I asked her if she could design a piece for me using a brooch like it and so she did just that. She removed it from her shop and with some of the things I told her I liked and that inspired me she created this lovely and eye catching brooch.  As you can see it is a delight to wear.

This is the first piece I bought and it is so romantic and elegant.

     So there they are, the brooches that make people stop and ask where did you get that beautiful pin.
And of course I answer back from a designer on Etsy you can find her shop by typing in bungelowjame no I.

Why do I only buy brooches you ask, Well,  because I am allergic to the metal's that is used in jewelry so i have to keep to pin's so the metal doesn't touch my skin.

Jamie also designs necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets.

Handmade bracelet Victorian Gothic repurposed vintage red lucite bead red crystals vintage Victorian style romantic

     Her jewelry is lovingly created with an eye for vintage flair, and the occasional whimsical feel. She loves to recycle old pieces of jewelry and recreate lovely vintage style items. Each piece she creates is one of a kind, she never duplicates a design, so when you purchase a piece, you will know that you have the only one.

     She is an avid organic gardener and I really tries to salvage and recycle everything she can.
Jame is contently creating new pieces and adding them daily so you should favorite her shop and stop by often to see whats new.  If you see something that inspires you like i did, I'm sure she would be more than happy to custom design a piece for you.

Jamie is a proud member of the SF Etsy Team which is a local team for Etsy sellers in the San Francisco Bay Area.

And also proud to be a member of the World Wide Esty Sellers on Twitter: check us out at #WWES some awesome talented folks!
