Sunshine Gardens: Jewelry and Artwork Inspired By Nature

In her own words:
"Hi there! My name is Gina Marie and I am the artist behind Sunshine Gardens! Four years ago, I started this business selling only handmade jewelry, but it has expanded to feature accessories, gifts, patches, and original artwork as well. I love doing custom pieces as well! All of my work is inspired by nature - colorful wildflowers, raging rivers, green leafy vines - and is all completely unique. Living in the breathtaking Appalachian mountains provides year-round inspiration for me. I strive to create beautiful works of art that are also affordable, because I strongly believe everyone should be able to shop handmade!!

Creativity is a beautiful thing, and I am fortunate to have creative genes - my mama is a painter, and both my papa and grandpapa were jewelry makers! I love creating and making things, and hope my work brings you joy just as it does for me :)"

You can find Gina Marie on Facebook and Pinterest.

Editor's note: Gina Marie has some great pieces in her shop. I'm loving this deer print. So sweet!

The Secret Scent Societé: Luxurious Highly Fragrant Handmade Bath & Body Products

In her own words:

"My name is Tori. I live and craft in South London. I am passionate about fragrances and started my company: The Secret Scent Societé a year ago. Before then I had studied Natural Perfumery. I make bath, body and home accessories with a strong emphasis on unique, superior fragrances using natural ingredients sourced locally. I have created my products to reflect a sense of luxuriousness and glamour.

I joined Etsy in August last year, and it's been great for networking and getting my products some exposure and it's also helped me improve my photography and to gain inspiration for new products I'd like to add to my range. I'm currently working on a body souffle.

The inspiration for my name The Secret Scent Societé came from my desire to make Bespoke Fragrances for people and I offer a Bespoke Service for my candles, where people can create a candle to suit there home or working environment or to give as a gift. You choose your candle colour, your container, and I create a signature fragrance exclusively for you. This service has been a very popular choice with my clients and they are always delighted with the outcome.

I'm currently offering a 10% discount on my Etsy page on all container candles including bespoke orders with the online code: SecretScents10."

You can find Tori on FacebookTwitterInstagramPinterest and on her blog.

Editor's note: I love that Tori uses vegan soy wax in her candles.  :)
