January EtsyBlogger: Rose Works Jewelry

The Legend of Zelda Link Bracelet

Is this not so cool!  The little "yay you found something" Zelda theme immediately went through my head.  She's got the esoteric symbol that ran throughout the first season of Heroes, too.  Yay geekery!

If you're not geek enough to know what the heck I'm talking about up there, there's still plenty to love.

Purple Snake Bracelet

I have an appreciation for a lot of the things in Rose Works' shop that I probably wouldn't have had last month, having completed my first bead weaving (peyote) bracelet recently.  These things are intricate and take a LOT of time.  But her prices are so reasonable!  (maybe she's a heck of a lot faster than I am... I'm guessing so).  I'm also envious over the macrame in her shop (I love macrame!) and at her other shop she has this gorgeous crocheted bookmark (for $7!).   Check it out:

Thank you so much for the feature! And beadweaving does get some faster with practice :)

It's nice to see a beadweaver featured here! Ruthie has some nice designs in her shop.

And it's nice to read that you've delved into peyote yourself. It's great fun, and there are endless possibilities for designs (and yes, delicas are an addiction).

Ruthie's prices are really low. Being a beadweaver myself, I wouldn't sell my own work for those prices, knowing that it can take anywhere from two to five hours to create a single bracelet or cuff (and I'm really fast, according to some of my beadweaving friends). Pricing is a personal issue, though, and I admit to being frustrated when I encounter pieces I think are priced too low (::stepping down from the soapbox::).

Don't forget to post pictures of your own beadwoven creations here!!
