Care to Bead

Gingeroni1 is an talented & admirable crafter who depends on her Etsy shop, Care to Bead, as her sole income. That's not the typical statement I would make about a designer here on Funky Finds. But Gineroni1 wrote an article for the Etsy Storque about her life as wife & caretaker to her husband, Dennis, who has lived with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) for nine years. In the article, she elaborates on how she first discovered Etsy & how opening her own shop gave her the opportunity to sell her jewelry without leaving home. Gingeroni1's designs are simply gorgeous. The Gate Keeper of the Magical Land is a fascinating piece in a series of three. I love the Tiny Swallow earrings that are available in multiple styles. All of these pieces seem to have a magical feel to them. Note that you can win one of ten pairs of earrings this week. One pair to be given away every Friday until Dec 20. Just convo Gingeroni1 to be entered & please let her know where you heard about her contest. (No purchase necessary. Must enter weekly.)

Thank you for sharing Gingeroni1's Etsy shop. I fell in love with her jewelry and ordered a necklace and two pairs of earrings. Everything is so pretty!
