But, I must start with the one who's shop I have spent most of my time and money in. That shop is

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 CA...so 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.
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.
