keiara's keepers: ticklebean & Merkaba Jewelry

Each week I choose a couple of artists whose work I really love. I've decided I'll call this weekly write-up 'keiara's keepers'. I know, I know.. I'm obsessed with alliteration. Anyway! This week I've chosen ticklebean and Merkaba Jewelry. I purchased the above GORGEOUS purple lily hair clips from Amy of ticklebean as a custom order. She had looooooads of other beautiful flower hair clips but I really had my heart set on purple lilies. Amy created these little lovelies just for me and I adore them! They are the perfect size, colour and the flowers look so pretty nestled in my bright red hair :D Plus Amy is super friendly and talented. Stop by and see for yourself!

This is another custom order created for me by Jennifer of Merkaba Jewelry. Jennifer is an incredibly patient and accommodating seller and I'm so glad I met her :) She created this fabulous scarflette in my new favourite wool colour, Gothic Purple and also shopped for buttons according to my requests. The scarflette is warm, amazingly soft and very well made. It is a nice alternative to a bulky scarf and still keeps my neck warm. Now I'm actually sad that spring is here and I won't be wearing it anymore! Fear not, though, next winter this little beauty will be one of the first items of my winter wardrobe to make an appearance :) Thanks a bunch, Jennifer, for all your help and for creating this gorgeous scarflette for me! (I also broke down and bought a matching scarf from her. If you like handmade scarves and such PLEASE go check out her shop. Her scarves are to die for!)

In beady news I've made a bunch more bunnies which have proven to be quite popular! I love their little faces and I may have made myself a pendant.. and a bracelet.. and a phone charm.. and some earrings!!! Heehee :) I'm so excited about my upcoming trip to Florida and celebrating Easter. Tomorrow I'm having a little Easter tea party with my sister and my friend Sam. There's something about little sandwiches and cupcakes with pastel-coloured icing that fills me with joy. I have to convince hubby to iron the tablecloth and napkins for me when he gets home. Hmm.. here's to hoping that goes over well!

Hope you're having a great week :)
