They’ll love being introduced to a new piece of jewelry and you won’t have to worry about getting them the same gift as someone else. Perfect for a nature lover or someone who loves to stand out.



Set of 5 Secret Surprise Dome GemSprout PendantsI love the listings for multiple pendants. This is a great way to get a few people a GemSprouts gift (think: teachers gifts, stocking stuffers, bridesmaid’s necklaces, etc.) They’re also a great way to enhance your own jewelry collection. Wear a new one everyday and display them as a mini garden when you’re not wearing them.

Dandelion Wishes -  Blown Glass Necklace in Antique Silver or Antique BronzeWhen you were a kid did you ever pick up a dandelion, make a wish and blow the seeds into the wind? This blown glass necklace with dandelion wisp seeds is a whimsical and charming piece of jewelry that will make you think of the sun on your skin and the cool grass on your feet. A great reminder of carefree days and that anything is possible. Comes with a matching chain in antique or silver.


Real Living Tiny Green Thimble Cactus Plant Necklace with BallchainOne of my favorite items in the GemSprouts shop is their thimble cactus necklace. I love cactus but every time I have one I end up pricking myself on the thorns! This cactus in a droplet capsule is a great way to look at the plant without touching it. What an adorable necklace, and it goes with practically any casual outfit! I love that you can actually plant it once it grows too big for the pendant.

Meet Kotryna Bass, owner of Kotryna Bass Design on Etsy! This is an amazing shop filled with custom and pre-made designs for WordPress and Blogger platforms. This is such a valuable tool for Etsy sellers who are interested in having their own blogs, I’m excited to share Kotryna’s work with you today! Keep reading to find out more about this wonderful shop!

My Craft Assistant: What drew you to this particular art/craft?

Kotryna: When I started blogging myself on http://www.kotrynabass.com I realized that there was a lack of web designers willing to help out bloggers or start-up companies without ripping them off completely. Due to my knowledge in HTML and graphic design I first got into designing my own blog and some of my readers asked if I would like to do the designs for them. I wasn’t confident at first, but here I am after 1.5 years doing this with the biggest love and passion.

Premade Blogger Blog Template Lushy Love Simple Modern Black White Instant DownloadMy Craft Assistant: Do you sell anywhere outside of Etsy?

Kotryna: Not at the moment, but I’m currently working on a new website and I hope it will be ready to lunch this summer.

My Craft Assistant: What do you like best about selling on Etsy?

Kotryna: I love the sense of community and how easy it is to find the items you need. My customers are seriously the best! So patient and understanding, I couldn’t wish for anything else!

My Craft Assistant: What are your 2 favorite products in your shop? Why?

Kotryna: I’m an absolute lover for all things minimal, so my favourite items would have to be The WordPress Theme Blog Design Less is More Instant Download Template and the Premade Blogger Blog Template Lushy Love Simple Modern Black White Instant Download

My Craft Assistant: What is your greatest success since joining Etsy?

Kotryna: I consider to be very lucky and every day working on my Etsy shop is the greatest success to me 🙂

My Craft Assistant: What inspires you?  How do you keep your creative spark firing?

Kotryna: People around me, my favourite bloggers, astonishing work by other web designers and books! I try to create only then I feel like it, nothing great comes from pushing yourself too hard.

My Craft Assistant: What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned running a handmade business?  What advice can you pass on to other Etsy sellers?

Kotryna: Most importantly- there are ups and downs with sales on Etsy and you can never know what’s going to happen every week. It’s really exciting, but you should make sure to see clearly and don’t get too upset if it’s not going as you were expecting.
