Sari of Etsy's Designs by Sari Lynne has been beading jewelry since she was a young girl at summer camp and continuing in elementary school and at home. In 2008, she decided to start selling her creations online after receiving encouragement from some people at comic book conventions she would attend with her husband.
Designs by Sari Lynne is filled with handmade jewelery and accessories, crafted from a variety of materials including semi-precious stones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, wire, beads and more. Sari enjoys working with anything she can get her hands on. If Sari sees something she likes, she figures out a way to make something with it. Her shop currently has a little over 30 items listed although she has more than 200 items waiting to be photographed and listed. If you don't see exactly what you're looking for in Sari's shop, she would LOVE to make a custom piece especially for you.
In addition to Etsy, Sari's participates in select craft shows throughout the year. For the past two years, she has organized and exhibited at the Creators’ Marketplace Show & Sale. This year's event is being hosted on May 1, 2010, at the Thornhill Community Centre, just north of Toronto, Ontario.
