Jet of the Day: BlancheB


Where to start, where to start?  
Well first of all, a little about the Jets. This is one funny group of Etsy sellers. Of course we sell a lot. Another thing we do is laugh a lot. And we also tend to call each other by nicknames. Yes, we are all adults, but I told you we like to laugh.

Beads for Blanche was actually named for this member's dog, but to us she has become Blanche, so Blanche she will be today.  Blanche is our Jet of the Day  and
Blanche's shop, Beads for Blanche, on Etsy.com is so full of surprises that I do not know where to start.

Blanche has always loved jewelry and especially the pieces from her Grandmother. In her shop you will find vintage jewelry and treasures, as well as brand new modern handmade jewelry.  Blanche makes hair doo-dads, and jewelry in sets. You will not believe the  3 for $15.00 section. You can really go nuts here! 
Aquamarine Butterfly Necklace
According to  Blanche, she thoroughly enjoys the satisfaction found from creating and being part of the handmade community. And she does not stop at jewelry. Blanche has a great eye which she uses in her photography.  I especially love her blank-photo-greeting cards. Now you see why it is hard to know where to start writing, with this  multi-faceted, prolific artist. See for yourself:

Panettea Rhinestone Rare Brooch- Vintage from the 1950's
Aquamarine-Dream Earrings
 This lovely necklace is a mix of vintage and new pieces. Definitely one of a kind!
"Amethyst Amour" Eco Chic Necklace
Tooled-Rose Leather Vintage Purse
 Vintage crystal cluster earrings, up-cycled and mounted on antique tone brass fiilgree bobby pins.
Eco-chic Bobby Pins
Pick 3 for $15.00- So much to choose from!
This handmade modern pendant of vermeil, gold and pink crystal is so feminine. It is a 50mm French Pentalogue handcrafted necklace.
"Survivor" Necklace
 Isn't this photo compelling! Blanche's message of the photograph is  "When life puts up a wall, make a window!" Love it!

What a pleasure browsing through this shop! Plenty to look at, and not just jewelry ... Blanche's cards are really nice too! A great example of what you'll find is her pretty Champagne Dreams Pearl Necklace ... and the price is certainly right!
