Lorelei's Atelier Jewelry: Welcome to Etsy!


This month, I was introduced to Lorelei of Lorelei's Atelier, a new jewelry boutique on Etsy, your place to buy & sell all things handmade.

Lorelei is a very special person. She's beautiful both inside and out. Her designs are soothing, almost nurturing, affirming and grounded. Do you see what I mean in these pictures? I love their cool weight. Their quality is palpable.

What's most important about Lorelei, though, is her goodness as a person. She's positive, she has integrity, honor and humility. I met Lorelei when she became an appreciative, friendly customer, buying scarves for herself and loved ones. Her obvious, genuine caring & kindness for those around her inspired me to feature her today. What an incredible person.

Please help me welcome Lorelei to Etsy by visiting her online jewelry boutique full of semi precious stones and quality metals. Be sure to add her shop to your favorites while you're there! :) Thanks, everyone and Happy New Year!

Celeste,
Thank you so much for featuring my new Etsy Store on your blog! I am so very grateful we've met through your beautiful scarves.
I recently decided to develop a shop on Etsy because it feels like a great big happy family of hand-crafters and I seem to naturally fit right in. I knew my jewelry would find a better home on Etsy that at my previous location on eBay. I have felt so welcomed and embraced here and your great advice, example and support has been really appreciated.. I feel like my work really has a place to shine now. Thanks too for your very dear comments! I do use fine quality materials, semi-precios stones, natural elements, Bali and Sterling SIlver in my jewelry because it is my wish to create original heirloom 'wearable art' that can be enjoyed for many years. I love to give and I hope my pieces will also become thoughtful gifts for others. My jewelry uses a lot of gemstone peices and I have many in my collection just waiting to become necklaces. When I'm getting ready to make a new piece, the pretty stones almost jump out of their boxes saying, "me next!" I am currently finishing several new pieces of jewelry and should have them up on my site in a couple of days. So feel free to check in on me from time to time to see what's new. It's my goal to continue to have new pieces ready weekly. It makes me really happy to know that people from many parts of the world are enjoying and wearing my jewelry! I love to create custom jewelry too. So if you have a special dress, or one of your very special, very pretty Cricket's Creations scarves that you want to coordinate with a piece of jewelry, I would love to help out! :) I've got several ideas already!--
Hopefully, with effort, intention and inspiration, my artistic endeavors can become my main career because they certainly are my main passion! As my Atelier develops, I plan to include my other creative outlets on Etsy too, which include painting and quilt-making!
Many thanks again- you've made this transition a really great experience!
