BEST Featured Artists: Reflections

Hello all!  It has been a few weeks since my last confession... uh feature.  Now that the holidays are over and 2012 has officially started, I am looking for some time to relax and refresh... So it's time to do a little shopping!

Vintage Portuguese Copper Tea Pot
I really like this vintage copper tea pot discovered by Connie Haskell of Redemption Art.  It was originally made in Portugal and features a ceramic handle.  I can only imagine sitting next to the window on a cold snowy morning this winter and pouring a hot cup of tea out of this pot.  Connie has lots of other vintage items she "found" in Hawaii including perfume bottles, garden decor, brass lights, and many more items.  I envy her as she gets to go out shopping for these objects!  Be sure to check her out elsewhere on the web including her Blog, Twitter, and Facebook pages.

Key Heart Coin Necklace
And with Valentine's day coming up, how about this pretty charm necklace featuring pearls and silver charms?  I particularly love the key and heart charms on either side of the necklace.  The necklace also lays out very nicely so be sure to check out other pictures of the necklace on the website.  CC, the artists at Blue White Wear, makes lovely jewelry inspired by her time in Asia and now Chile.  She also works with the traditional blue and white ceramic beads from Asia.  You can find out more about CC and her jewelry at her Blog and follow her on Twitter

Drop Shell Crocheted Bracelet
And last but not least, check out this shell bracelet made by Ellen Mackler of Gmaellen's store.  This bracelet jumped out at me right away.  It makes me think so much about the beach (and what I would not give to be on one right now!).  The colors make me think of a sunset, while the draping shells on the crochet pattern remind me of a fishing net.  So gorgeous!  Be sure to check out Ellen's other pieces of jewelry, as well as her Blog, Twitter, and Facebook pages. 
Well that is all for this week - be sure to check back with us for more great items!
