New found friends

I had the pleasure of meeting a fellow Etsian today. I have tweeted with this fellow jewelry designer for months and she recently purchased two pieces from our Etsy shop. We don't live far from each other so I thought I would suggest personally delivering the pieces. We met at a local bead store (surprised? lol) and she was as lovely as her Etsy shop She is also a freelance graphic designer.

The bead store is one she has visited numerous times, however this was my first visit. I fell in love with this store! A great selection and the cleanest and most organized of any I have seen! One of the greatest features of this store are the classes they offer. Metalsmithing, dichroic glass, bead crocheting, and so much more! My boyfriend and I hope to take the metalsmithing very soon!

Meeting this wonderful Etsian has made me appreciate even more the wonderful community that Etsy provides. How we share knowledge with each other, promote each other, and gain inspiration from one another is something you don't find just anywhere.

I have gained some wonderful friends through Etsy and through these friendships I have learned so much! I appreciate all of you and our Etsy community!
