This Etsy shop is really something special! I found it quite a long time ago - a little bit after we first joined Etsy (I remember loving the name of it), and I admired all the beautiful pieces found in it. Then, when I became leader of the Blogging Buddies team, I re-found this shop through the owner Kelly's blog. Kelly's blog is one of my most favorites to visit. She's always got great photos to view, and she blogs about a little bit of everything.
Your Charmed Life offers beautiful personalized hand stamped jewelry. Opening in April of 2010, the shop has over 3,000 Etsy sales, and its own stand-alone website too. Kelly started stamping after admiring a necklace she had seen on a mommy internet group...And we're all so glad that she saw that necklace and decided to try making one herself! Her pieces are all works of art. Each one is individual, unique and tells a story.
This is what Kelly says about herself:
"Industrious mother of one, busy bodied 5 yr. old boy and loving wife of 4 years. I have finally pin pointed my outlet for creativity. Welcoming this a blissful reward!"
And this is what she says about her materials and process:
"I draw on using all types of metals, from sterling silver, brass and copper. Boosting the charms
with textures and dings, oxidizing and wool brushing for that marked rustic look. YOURCHARMEDLIFE is all about YOU and your custom CHARMS."

And here's something I learned while I was putting this blog post together, Kelly owns a second Etsy shop where she sells her lovely photography prints! Who knew? I found quite a few that I like (and faved)..
Check it out!
I bet you'll find at least one that you love!
