It’s rare to find a shop with that truly offers “something for everyone.” But the amazing diversity of jewelry at Mystic Wynd is impossible to ignore. Just check out the shop sections — everything from Angels and Faeries to Funky/Modern to Vintage. Then click on a few images, and you’ll find the work of a self-confident designer who can move deftly from one look to another without missing a beat (or maybe that should be “bead”).

Here’s one example, the “Aqua and White Necklace Glass Heart with Ribbon – Love Grows”:

Contrast that sleek, streamlined look with this exotic, nature-inspired “Telescopium Shell and Seed Bead Necklace with Charms”:

Click on the Gemstones section and you’ll find treasures like this “Green Apple Turquoise with Pearl Necklace”:

Green apple turquoise … who knew? Plus, the detailed descriptions include fun information on various stones, including their metaphysical, astrological and numerological properties. How cool is that?

In a world where most people are pretty happy if they can manage to do one thing well, Karen, the artist behind Mystic Wynd, has applied her talent to lots of different styles with stunning results.   Why the wide ranging approach? As she explains: “One of the first things the entrepreneurial gurus tell you to do is to determine who you want your products to appeal to. In my case, it was obvious – everyone!”

She’s not kidding! No matter what your style or taste in jewelry, there are pieces here that are not to be missed. But don’t take my word for it. Connect with Mystic Wynd and Karen at:

Ready for a refreshing take on handmade clothes and accessories? Then Come Shop Pink Lemonade with me, and check out a fabulous fellow etsy BESTeam member!

One look at the dazzling palette in this store, and you know that shop owner Paige has a gift for eye-catching creations and fearless use of color. Her embellished ladies’ tank tops and t-shirts are all standouts. For example, I love the “Wow!” combination of black and turquoise in this tshirt.

And that color confidence carries through to equally inspired combinations like this tone-on-tone purple/lavender top, too. Gorgeous!

But even though Paige’s tops are clearly a specialty, the details on this little black bag knocked me out.

The first thing that crossed my mind when I saw that bag was “WANT!” Actually, that was the second thing that crossed my mind, too. I love the intricate ruffles and the way she arranged them in unexpected ways. Plus, that gorgeous bright “peacock” blue lining could take your breath away.

Then there’s this adorable little gold satin flower, perfect for adding some shimmer to your hair on a hot summer day.

Did I mention that Paige is fourteen years old? If not, it’s probably because I’m so jealous. I’ll get over it. But I hope she doesn’t get over her interest in making clothing and accessories, because this is one talented designer with a spectacular future ahead.
