EtsyInspired #20 ~ Zeba


This week's EtsyInspired artist is Zeba. This shop offers a very eclectic variety of beautiful jewelry. She has everything from playful and fun pieces to my very favorite classy freshwater pearls. There's a little something for everyone here. She even has a section for young ladies! How cute is that? She has a great eye for color and even showing you what type of outfit you might wear with the pieces (from her pictures with mannequins.) It's just a really lovely and eye catching store.

This week, Zeba is offering up a necklace made specifically for this challenge. How cool is that? It's valued at $45! How generous! All you have to do to be entered in the Random.Brady drawing is make any creation that you would like inspired by any piece in the amazing Zeba shop. Then post a link to your creation right here on this very post by next Friday January 23 noon Pacific time and you'll be entered to win this amazing prize! Now, go be EtsyInspired.



This is my card for this week. I wanted to use my little Asian girl since there was a geisha necklace in the shop. And I'm going further with my theory that anything colored pink and red is perfect for Valentine's Day. I was thinking if there was a little Asian girl in the children's hospital, that she might like something a little more personalized.

Here's Lee's sweet ladybug card! I am loving that designer paper she used and those cute ladybugs with the pink sparkles! So very cute!
And here's further proof that Joy and I share a brain. Here's Joy's little geisha gift card holder! Isn't this super cute?
How fun is Christine's take on the inspiration? I love this layout! The colors are perfect and I just adore how she arranged her little pictures to look like a necklace! How smart is that?
Here's Tanis's bright and fun card!  I am in love with these colors!  I'm going to have to make a card with this color combo, it's amazing!  I love this fun and sweet card!
And clearly the rest of my team is MIA. How sad. Actually, that lucky Ryann is on a cruise to Mexico sitting in the warm sun and drinking fruity drinks from a coconut. And Lindsay is still very busy with her hubby recovering from pneumonia. But the rest of the team is MIA! :(

Yes, this is the place for the necklace giveaway HOWEVER you have to MAKE something inspired by the shop to be entered. You can make anything a card, tag, cake, scarf, sculpture, whatever but it must be something inspired by the shop hence the name EtsyInspired.
