Now that I have somewhat of a handle on what my schedule will look like for the next little while, I have had more time to create new pieces. I received a bunch of new supplies the other week from 123 Betwixt, and have been dying to dig into them! Last night, I got my chance and made a bunch of new key chains and earrings. As soon as I take photos they are ready to find a new home, and will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop. Shop owner Elaine, located in BC Canada, sells the most darling little charms and beads. Her shop consists of both new and vintage supplies. They are the perfect addition to your next project! You can find some for yourself by visiting her shop on Etsy.

Elaine has another shop as well, Brynn Alex. This shop features cards, gifts, jewelry, and lavender sachets.

Brynn Alex is not just another shop on Etsy for me. The back story on how it was founded is one of heartbreak and love.

It is dedicated to the memory of Elaine’s daughter, Brynn, who lost her life in a traffic accident at 12 years old. This inspired Elaine to start the Brynn’s Memorial Arts Bursary(scholarship) Fund, which helps send students to Art school. Elaine’s story is both tragic and inspiring.

I purchased one of her “Brynn’s angels” to support her cause, and I ask that you do the same.

Please visit the official website to read more about this story, and Brynn Alex to support Elaine and her cause.
