My Texas Friends Meet and Greet, Part 5

This is such a fun series. If you have been keeping up with the blog then you know that My Texas Friends is a very active thread in the Promotions Section of the Etsy forums.
Each month we start a new thread and meet new friends. "If you are a Texan... Want to be one...or wish you were one; then you've come to the right place. 3 Cheers for the Lone Star State!

Join us for a month of great fun and lots of great promotions.

This thread is as wide as the State of Texas itself to anyone who is currently living in Texas, has ever lived in Texas, has ever visited Texas or likes Texas.

Promote Friendly, The Texas Way."

So without further ado, let's meet and greet our new friend, austinleighdesigns
Shop Announcement
Labradorite, coral, agate, quartz , jasper, carnelian, prehnite turquoise, copper,silver and gold vermeil necklaces, bracelets and earrings for women for everyday style to formal evening wear. I make customized jewelry, so if you like a particular style and don't see the color of stone that you want, let's talk. I consider each stone for its beauty and what it brings to the owner. I love seeing a design emerge from the stones that I hold in my hand. 
All of my handwired or hand strung jewelry is handcrafted from the finest quality materials and made to last. Most of my materials consist of genuine Swarovski Crystals™, precious and semi-precious stones with sterling silver (92.5% pure silver), fine silver (99.9% pure silver), 24k gold vermeil (24k gold over sterling silver) and goldfill findings.Each piece of jewelry is unique and one of a kind. I use sterling silver unless noted in the item description that it is silver plated. 

I add something new every day so bookmark my shop or follow me on my facebook fan page!/pages/Austin-Leigh-Designs/301503512097

Please contact me if you have any questions.

Etsy Profile Bio:

I have been an artist all my life. Over the years I have dabbled in numerous mediums. Currently my love is semi precious stones and minerals of the earth. When I travel I always manage to find beautiful stones to remind me of where I have been. Many of these stones are featured in my designs.

My shop is named after my two daughters who also share my love for fine jewelry.

Her Bio on Etsy:


My name is Kimberly DuBois and i live on beautiful Lake Whitney in Texas. I wasn't born here but I now call it home. I was born in Pennsylvania and lived there most of my life. Seven years ago i met a great guy online who lived in Texas. To my amazement, he married me and whisked me off to Texas. In the past seven years we have traveled the lower 48 states. I have seen it all thru the windshield of a Freightliner. 116 degrees in Blyth CA, zero visibility snow storms in Cleveland OH, ice storms in Evanston WY. The Walmart in Rifle CO, I 20 in Atlanta GA, cemeteries of New Orleans LA, and orange groves of Bradenton FL. I have experienced Phoenix, AZ at rush hour, a big roadrunner in Las Cruses NM, the George Washington Bridge in NYC, the beltway of Washington DC. and so much more. I love my country.
Yes I have created art in every state. I have Quilted, knitted, drawn and glued my way down Americas highways.
I am a great believer in recycling items for the sake of art.
I save bits of paper and fabric. i love art. I love the art on Etsy.
Bellavioletta is Italian for beautiful purple. Purple is my favorite color and I am Italian American so that's the special meaning of bellavioletta.

I believe in reusing materials from everyday life. I never toss out a scrap of fabric. The fabric postcards are made from bits of leftovers from sewing projects or upcycled fabrics. I used upcycled chipboard from cereal boxes, pop tarts, mac and cheese, etc..for the doe doe birds. The atc's are made on bases of used playing cards. I save wrapping paper, pretty boxes, unusual drink cans, gift bags, etc... In other words, anything that grasps my attention as potentially artworthy.

(or any of my hand cut embellishments)

*scrapbook layouts
*journal pages
*bookmarkers-(add a ribbon)
*brooches-(add a pin back)
*pendants-(add a bail or punch a hole)
*gift tags-(punch a hole and add a ribbon)

and so much more
