Featured Etsy Artist and Giveaway for September!  
Featured Etsy Artist and Giveaway

JustaGirl Creations

Lindsey is the owner of JustaGirl Creations-- a shop with pieces  inspired by Gwen Stefani's fun, unique, and girly style. Aside from her shop, she is a full-time mom and part-time substitute teacher. Her shop is about a month old, but she has been on Etsy since February.

She began crafting when her brother in law and his long time girlfriend were about to get married. They only had about 5 weeks and a tight budget to put the wedding together, so Lindsey started making items for them and it turned out to be a very beautiful, personalized wedding. She began making jewelry after the wedding, because she felt lost without anything to work on.

Choosing a favorite from her own shop can be difficult, but her newest favorite is her cell phone lanyards. "They were inspired by my own needs - as a mom with a busy 4 year old, I sometimes suddenly need my hands free.  I also drop my phone a lot.  My sister and I both use and love them," Lindsey said.

Her favorite materials to work with at the moment are silver, Swarovski crystals, and gemstones, with  cherry jade as her current favorite.  She is also working on a more upscale line of jewelry that will use fine materials. Her favorite colors include blue and aqua, and also pink, black, greens and purples.

Lindsey has said that Etsy is broadening her horizons and challenging her to explore different creative styles.

JustaGirl Creations does do custom orders. She says, "Most of my wedding items are customized for colors and flowers, and I am happy to create a custom jewelry piece if you want a different size, color, or style." She also ships internationally. If your country is not listed, convo her on etsy and she will find out the shipping amount for you!

Lindsey has been gracious enough to not only donate an item to giveaway, but is also offering all readers 20% off by putting the code word: SPOTTED in the message box of their order.

Since you asked what we liked best about the shop, I'd have to answer that she donates a portion of all sales to Gift of Life Transplant House.

What I like most about JustaGirl Creations Etsy Shop is first that Lindsey offers a variety of items for sale. Lindsey have so many beautiful necklaces, earrings and bracelets and a variety of non-jewelry items too! I also really like the fact that many of the necklaces and bracelets can easily match any of the earrings that Lindsey makes. It is always nice to be able to make a matching set out of unique pieces of jewelry and I noticed many of the earrings can easily work with the other jewelry for sale in her shop. I love the color combinations that she uses in creating her jewelry and my favorite piece is the Regency - gray Swarovski Tahitian pearl and silver beaded double strand necklace!
