Etsy is an e-commerce company (like ebay) that currently limits sales to handmade items.


Etsy does lots of things like ebay. They charge Sellers a listing fee and final sale percentage (although at $.20 and 3.5% they are way below what ebay charges) and listing stays for four months, not for couple of days. There is an ebay-like feedback system, and Etsy have integrated PayPal as a payment option.

Imitation tatting can be purchased, but nothing beats the real item.

The shuttles used centuries ago were made from wood, ivory, bone, metal, or shell. They were longer than most used today and almost always highly decorated. Whether they were carved or studded with jewels, these shuttles were meant to catch the eye as the lady made her lace.

Tatting knowledge was passed along from person to person. In time, patterns were printed in popular magazines and books. These days tatting is back to fashion in old and new way as a doilies, collars and jewelry.




I learned frivolite technique more than 20 years ago and came back to lace making just several years ago.

Valentine's Gifts- Unique crochet jewelry

Happy Valentine’s Day from

Every February we celebrate Valentine’s Day by giving flowers and gifts to those we love. We do this in honor of Saint Valentine. You may be wondering, “Who is St. Valentine”? Legend has it that Valentine was a priest who served during third century Rome. Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those that were married. With this thought in mind he outlawed marriage for young men in hopes of building a stronger military base. Supposedly, Valentine, decided this decree just wasn’t fair and chose to marry young couples secretly. When Emperor Claudius II found out about Valentine’s actions he had him put to death.

Another legend has it that Valentine was an imprisoned man who fell in love with his jailor’s daughter. Before he was put to death he sent the first ‘valentine’ himself when he wrote her a letter and signed it ‘Your Valentine’, words still used on cards today. Perhaps we’ll never know the true identity and story behind the man named St. Valentine, but this much is for sure…February has been the month to celebrate love for a long time, dating clear back to the Middle Ages. In fact, Valentines ranks second only to Christmas in number of greeting cards sent.

I started my jewelry designs in November 2006. In Anthropology-store I saw beautiful crochet necklace from beads and decide to make one myself.It was a long way to find strong and nice looking thread and gemstones. My first necklace was from turquoise and for crochet I was using French acrylic silk. My favorite color is silver-black, it looks like metal, but gives light to the necklace. After I made it everybody asked me where I bought it and complement me with beautiful work I done. I made couple crochet necklaces for my friends, and after for friends of friends, and finally I decide to start jewelry business.
