I am happy to announce, I'm now caught up - I'll see if I can stay caught up!
As a category, there is more jewelry on ArtFire than anything else - talk about competition!  A lot of the artisans are women, and women love jewelry right, so it seems like a natural item for so many in the handmade world to make jewelry.  Tough competition though.
It is very interesting seeing how different people use the same materials as other people and yet create something very unique with it.  Rose of Sharon has some very unique jewelry creations.  You can tell she loves playing around with metals, and actually bending it into a piece of art.  Here's a pendant that would be excellent for someone who is a musician or even a music lover
A Treble Cleff made with  sterling silver, and if you don't want silver, she has one in copper, or how about these Hammered Copper Earrings.  I really encourage you to check out the wonderful creations by this artisan, she has some very unique pieces. 

Magnets, magnets are one of the handiest things to have.  How many of us use magnets to hang our kids pictures on the frig.  or little notes, or whatever so why do it with just a plain ol' magnet when you can use something like these wonderful and humorous magnets by Picard Creative.  Almost everyone knows those Ruby Red Shoes and the phrase "there's no place like home" and she makes them with recycled tin can lids and quality pictures.   She has a huge variety, and the sayings she puts on them are just fantastic, they have such humor, and will bring a smile to your face.

I love this one! Yeah Kitty will have revenge, I'd want revenge too if I was a cat dressed up like that!!  Picard Creative has great prices and if you buy 3, you get one free!  Humorous, fun magnets, they will make you, your friends, and family laugh. 

Try and find that in a store! 

Just the picture alone is funny, but then you add the phrase, and it's even better.   Picard Creative uses mostly vintage type pictures and the sayings she has to go along with them are so fitting, you just have to see them.

As always, I encourage to you check out some of these unique handmade creations, they make excellent gifts for birthdays, Christmas, or just because.   
Thanks for visiting, and have a tremendously joyful day.
