Tie one on

diament designs necklaceI always love reading through the Quit Your Day Job feature on Etsy’s Storque blog, which features all these wonderful artists and crafters who are making a real living off their passions. Most of them are so good, you can really see just why their artistry has caught on.

This week’s inspiration: Libby of Diament Designs.
This former MAC cosmetics employee turned entrepreneur has a great eye,
selling original and vintage baubles that remind me of so many flea market finds I spotted in Europe earlier this year. She’s clearly got heart for hearts, bows, and other delicate objects.

The gold bow necklace
(above) refashioned from a vintage charm is a super hot style. And I think that pieces like the limited
edition vintage shield necklace are so great — delicate but still bold.

Prices for Libby’s handmade pieces and vintage jewelry are fantastic with most items in the $30-$55 range. Plus, she’s
saving you time and gas money by hitting the good tag sales at 6 AM on Sunday
mornings for you. Thanks Libby; the

busy moms of the world owe you one. –Liz
