Featured Etsy Seller :: Casto Creations

My pick this week is Casto Creations whose Etsy Shop I discovered through the forums.

A maker of elegant handcrafted jewelry, she says, "Playing with metal and fire is my current obsession. I love to fuse - melting metal together to create a strong bond. It's therapeutic and fun!"

Here are a couple of my favorites for sale in her shop.
These earrings: fine silver textured discs which sway gently beneath a single faceted semi precious gemstone. Each disc is hand cut, formed, fused by fire, and then hammered for texture and strength.

And this necklace: Fine Silver Cherry Tree Pendant which is available in different sizes in her shop. The cherry tree design is stamped into fine silver to create a fabulous necklace. It is antiqued to bring out the design and then hand polished for a soft shine. The pendant is made with PMC, which when fired becomes pure silver (99.9%). It hangs from a delicate sterling silver chain and is finished with a sterling silver lobster clasp and a signature tag.

I am so sorry to hear about your son and his wife. My heart goes out to them. It is so hard to lose our fussy babies, but you are right. They live on in our hearts forever and ever. Thank you for sending me such sweet thoughts. they really mean a lot.
