My African jewellery on ww.etsy.com



                                       Hello, dear friends.

As I am getting on in life and have to settle for calmer pursuits, I started to fall back on my crafting days and embarked on a new Africa loving venture.
Taking as my inspiration the vivid colors, the bold patterns and the cheerfulness of the local people, as well as their traditions in making and wearing body adornments, I created a few pieces of "African" jewelry myself. People liked what they saw and I really and to me almost unbelievably got some orders. Being encouraged, I opened my own shop on www.etsy.com and would like you to have the opportunity to view my humble creations on my own blog platform as well.
My link to this shop in, what I call a respected global shopping mall for handcrafted items, the mall of Etsy is:

Some of the products on my 'shelves' I herewith present to you and would really appreciate your feedback in any good old way.
