Spotlight on friends

My friend Heather started a jewelry line of her own called Simpledaisy, so cute and so simply fresh! I have been trying to spot light all my friends and their creations. I truly believe you need to support your friends and everyone benefits when you all network with each other. It's fun to trade services with your creative friends too !

So Heather does home shows and she also has her own studio at Etsy it's an online shopping mecca for all things handmade. If you are looking for something unique Heather is your girl. She takes a lot of time thinking about her creations and is inspired a lot by nature. Heather uses a lot of sparkly precious jems and sterling silver. Now I am obssesed with all things blue so as you can see I picked some of her blue pieces to spotlight! So I am having a glass of wine while I am blogging and I am raising my glass to all my very talented friends. So go check out Simpledaisy at etsy.com and let your creative self shine!
