More Team ESST supply sellers

I just visited 2 more etsy stores, the first is - she makes her beads from clay, porcelain, stoneware and other materials and the colors are delicious and she handpaints some as well, unique, one of a kind beads, pendants and other items for crafters and jewelry makers who do not want to look like they are competing with Walmart.

The second one is along the same lines, only takes dishes, etc. and makes handcut mosaic tiles, in every color imaginable, designs, plaids and some are in shapes as for flowers, fruits, and many are glass as well. You could certainly make a unique ooak item with these tiles.

Team ESST - more goodies

Check out for excellent tools for jewelry makers and crafters. I found some pretty little copper thingies and some bead reamers. The etsy supply team has many excellent stores, anything you need to craft your little heart out.

I also found that has some beautiful chains, as well as findings, bead caps and some adorable frosted flowers that I have been thinking of a way to use. I am more of a fiber person, but they are great. I am checking out the chains as that is my favorite way to make a handle for my knit, felted and freeform bags.

ESST Etsy Supply Street Team

Today I would like you all to know the myriad of different supplies offered by the teamies on the many etsy stores in this group. I personally sell vintage buttons, beads and novelty yarn destash, but there is so much more. Jewelry makings, I make my vintage button brooches using donut beads from and the filigrees from Whatever you do as a hobby, checking out the team will lead you from one wonderful shop to another.

I checked out today and ended up purchasing some velvet cloth, metallic embroidery thread and some other items. Just a chance visit finds all sorts of items.

Another etsy store has the most beautiful little crochet flowers, in gorgeous colors and my favorite is the frosty poppy. I am trying to think of which colors would be best with my handknit and felted bags. Ummmm.
