Today is the first of it's kind....a featured Etsy Store! I've decided to feature a store every Thursday. There are so many extremely talented people on etsy, and this was my only way to show them off to you!
This week is the store Leelinau. I found her by chance, she was looking for help resizing a banner. I helped her out and then looked at her store and couldn't resist buying a pair of her earrings!
I think I should have been smiling in the photo cause I am really happy to own these earrings.
From the Etsy Shop owner of Leelinau:
My name is Adina Cain and I run a shop on Etsy called "Leelinau." I'm an enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. I grew up in Milwaukee and stayed on the reservation couple of summers in my youth. I create and sell my art, which is based upon the traditions of my culture. Anyhow, I started out as a beader. My gramma let me bead with her when I was little, and I got into it again when I was about 19. I got so many requests for my work I started selling it at Powwows all over Wisconsin and Northern Illinois. I actually had a Brick & Mortar shop in 1994 and 1995 called Woodlands & Prairies. Then I was introduced to the internet and I've never looked back. Now I sell my art on Etsy, even though I started on Ebay in 1998. I LOVE Etsy. Truly, its such a supportive, active, creative community.You meet the most wonderful people like Leigh! ^_^
