Tamsy Trends: Fun, Colorful Handmade Jewelry

In her own words:

Hi! My name is Maite and I own Tamsy Trends, a handmade jewelry shop on Etsy. I am a stay-at-home mom and a self-taught jewelry artist. I have always loved crafting but my journey with jewelry making started a few years ago when my youngest child started elementary school. I found myself finally having a little extra time on my hands and decided to picked up a jewelry making book and starter kit on a trip to a hobby store. My thinking then was I would learn to make a couple of necklaces and bracelets for myself and my kids and if my end products were good enough, I would give a couple to my relatives as Christmas gifts. Well, needless to say, I got completely hooked and I did not stop making jewelry since then.

When I create, I always try to make simple but elegant pieces. I go for fun, color and versatility, rather than just following the latest trends and my goal is to create classic pieces that do not quickly go out of style. My favorite materials are Swarovski crystals, pearls and a variety of colorful gemstones like turquoise, chalcedony, amethyst, agate and tigereye.

Thanks for this.
Antique jewelry, a term applied to jewelry over a hundred years old, is now a favorite with the prospective brides, too.
