My Etsy Favorite Sellers #1




I thought about making a post about my favorite esty sellers now and then, a long time ago, but yesterday SandFibers bought me a ring and that was pretty special to me, since she's one of the first sellers I found on Etsy, and I've been stalking admiring her work ever since.
So I decided to start this new feature with her.



Carol Dean it's her name, and she lives in Anthony, New Mexico. She grew up in Germany and Belgium, and her father is German, so she's almost one of us, Europeans :)
Her work with beads is so beautiful and I think she's got a really good eye for color combination.
I just love her bracelets!




Besides being an amazing artist, Carol is so nice!
You can find her in her etsy shop, on flickr and she has a blog too.
Go and say hi, I tell you, it's worth it.
