Front Page of Etsy!

So the other day I nearly fell out of my chair with excitement...one of my Octo-tote's was featured on the front page of Etsy!

I managed to take a quick screen-shot of the treasury, it was only on the front page for about 10-15 minutes. I am so thankful I was chosen for such a great treasury! The treasury was created by http://whynottsewn.etsy.com/.

You can get an octo-tote from http://margaretkelly.etsy.com/ for $14.

MK Supplies on Etsy

So, first hand, I am a jewelry designer, and what do most of us jewelry designers have a problem with? A bead addiction. I have spent countless hours sourcing vintage, old, and unique supplies and have opened up a shop on etsy.com to share my growing collection with you at competitive prices. Mksupplies is a proud member of ESST Etsy Supply Street Team.

I will be putting together links, tutorials, and sharing some of my favorite jewelry designers with you here!
