Team EBSQ-Etsy Featured Showcase: Passion

Passion. The word can be interpreted in many ways. It’s used to describe the love between two people, the zeal for life, and the intensity of an artist’s skill with a brush, to name a few. We hope you enjoy our team’s interpretations of Passion!

Team EBSQ-Etsy Featured Friday: Beaded Heron

Team EBSQ-Etsy is proud to present this week’s Featured Friday Store: 

Kris Jean: With the patience of a saint, Steph toils over little bits of glass, pearl, semi precious stones, and crystal. She uses her magic to turn these regular items into the most fantastic one of a kind creations. Her skills – impeccable. Her talent – endless. Not only does she create freeform jewelry using the very versatile Peyote Stitch – she also does her own Lampwork, and is fluent in the art of the Viking Knit.  Many of her creations are born of her love of the sea and of her home away from home Jamaica.

Heide Hibbard: Stephanie’s shop has just recently been filled with many new, amazing things. She has crazy skills that are coupled with a compulsive obsessive need to bead that result in lovely, well-made, one-of-a-kind masterpieces. There is the most lovely necklace in her store right now that has a beaded starfish as a pendant that makes a couple clicks to view it well worth the journey. If you don’t buy it as soon as my budget allows I intend to.


The name may have changed but the group is still the same, with over 100 members Team EBSQ-Etsy is still rockin it.

Ideas are currently being accepted for the March Showcase.
