here & now - Best of Etsy 2015

The first shop I wanted to feature is one that has made it to the top of my Christmas list for this year.  As a kid I was enamored with stained glass, probably because my mom used to take us to see the Tiffany glass exhibit at the Chrysler Museum in Norfolk every summer.  It led to me learning how to use the faux stained glass paints & leading from the craft store.  Clearly not fine art, but I hey it was the nineties.  And we did stuff like that.

But the thought of stained glass around my neck.  My word.  Why didn't I think of that.  Helena owns the shop here & now, based out of Ontario, Canada.  Check out some of these beautiful pieces that Helena has listed in her shop.

She is based in Ontario, so US folks be sure to plan far enough ahead for shipping time.  You know, because I'm sure you've added me to your Christmas list right?  And it's not all jewelry - how perfect would this be filled with Christmas lights on your mantle?
