BarbsMacrameandMore on ArtFire with her gorgeous beaded micro-macramé earrings. I never got beyond plant hangers with my macramé, and continue to be amazed by the delicate beauty of this micro cord twisting art form. There are necklaces and other macramé works available in her shop. Barb does make decorative plant hangers, which is the only way to keep my cats from gnawing on house plants.
Facebook and she maintains a presence on etsy and zibbet. Macramé or crochet, if you see something you like, but prefer a different color, be sure to contact her for a custom order.
Bringing exposure to wonderful artisans whose shops have gone unnoticed or under appreciated.

Money doesn't grow on trees, but in this shop it can be found blossoming in flowers. I found this interesting origami rose made from dollar bills at BloomyRoses on eCrater. They make flowers that will last long after fresh cut flowers have withered. I find their selection of chocolate roses particularly tempting. In addition to a variety flowers, there are red 3D origami hearts for Valentine's Day, or anytime you want to show your affection.
Flowers are made to order, ship internationally, and are customizable. Pick your flowers, colors, and arrangement for a very special occasion. Simple paper never looked so good!

Sea shells and fish scales come together is artistic harmony at this etsy shop, SeaRifficCreations.
After attending a Shell Show and viewing awe inspiring, award winning creations, the creative spark was ignited in this artist. Jodi went home and got to work with her stash of shells collected over the years. It didn't take long before her husband was hooked too. After wading in the water at local craft fairs, this married team have brought their unique creations to an internet audience so everyone can appreciate this unusual art.
They enjoy long walks on the beach, picking up shells of course, and with the help of an obliging fisherman, they have a supply of fish scales to use in their lovely art pieces. You don't have to worry about smelling like a fish wearing one of these beautiful flowers. The scales are carefully prepared for creative use showcasing their natural beauty, and no odor remains.
This husband and wife team enjoy creating from the bounty of the sea in Florida and do ship to Canada. She is new to Facebook, and getting a website up and running. These unique hair clips and floral table decorations would make wonderful additions to a nautical themed wedding.
