ETSY Feature #2 - An Indie Designer - ELPY

ABOUT THE ARTIST :

Rebecca Jackson
is a home school graduate and Connecticut-based indie designer. Her shop is elpy [Handcrafted]. Discontented with using eBay as a venue for handmade items, She discovered and started selling leftovers from previous crafty ventures on Etsy when she was 19.

Now, three years later, her work has changed to reflect her love for shapes and colors. They are frequent themes in her jewelry, pyrography and sewn items. She's constantly coming up with new ideas, exploring new techniques and figuring out how to incorporate them into her work.

MY REVIEW:

I have received some of Ms. Jackson's work from her elpy handcrafted series. They are wooden magnets, one with the Alphabet and the other with numbers on it.

They are hand cut, sanded, and drawn on with her special tools, and she has also sealed them.

They are really beautiful. And me being a parent, I also like functional items, and these are perfect for helping me teach my 3 yr. old her alphabet and numbers while I am cooking in the kitchen. They are superior quality and very lovely.

The elpy designs shop has a variety of items for sale. They include : coasters,magnets, bead jewelry, knot jewelry, pin backs, and wristlets.

THE GIVEAWAY

She is giving away similar magnets on her "Not Rachael" elpy site, so here is the link to win. Her contest is open until January 31st.
