Saturday Night Shopping with Pure Prana Label

* What is your name and your shop name

My name is Cindy van den Heuvel, owner and creator of Pure Prana Label.

iusa_400x400-40615561_6n4i

* How did you get started in your craft?

I graduated as a mastor tailor, earlier in life, and had an internship with a well known hat designer located in the Netherlands, where all hats were made by hand. I finished this internship with all A’s and I got invited at an art academy in Rotterdam. I loved it, but I could not see how I would ever have my own label. Internet wasn’t so far yet and owning a real shop would cost me a lot of investments. I got cold feet and started working in several jobs, still in fashion, but I wanted to be an entrepreneur. In my 30’s I started with yoga class and somehow I couldn’t find the products I’d like, it was all a bit boring to me and I wanted something beautiful and Eco-friendly. That was the moment I started making some products, showed them on Facebook, to see how people would react and… I had my first sale instantly. I loved it and figured this could be my niche!

il_570xn-1021552889_es2d

* What made you decide to sell on Etsy

I didn’t know Etsy, it is not so well known in The Netherlands, but when I was talking about starting my own label a friend told me about his friend who sold jewelry on Etsy. A worldwide network of artist. I figured this would be handy, I had no idea how big Etsy was. I opened my shop, just as a hobby at first and sold my first collection right away. This year I completely changed my strategy and re- opened the store with new products. I am officially an entrepreneur now 😀 and making income out of my creativity… Finally!

il_570xn-1014824509_6tvm

* Tell us about the items in your shop:

Mostly my items are used for meditation, yoga or relaxation, but I am heading to a home decor line as well. My products are made out of organic linen, European linen, which is very strong and durable. I only use non toxic dyes and try to work as durable as possible. All prints are hand-printed and I love using old techniques like wooden stamps or shibori.
il_570xn-1003827791_86xa
* What inspires you?

My inspiration comes from the most strange places, during the day I am collecting color patterns in my mind. I can’t explain how inspiration works actually, I think it is like a little antenna on top of my head that’s collecting wherever I am, every moment of the day and at one point… It just all comes together in a new idea.

il_570xn-993939463_bbc3

* How long you have been crafting or selling

I started at Etsy in 2014, I have always been creative and that showed in all levels of my life. I can’t remember a time that I didn’t create, invent or had ideas to create. I have always called them ‘my projects’ and I am making people crazy with it. So it is good that I can loose some of that creativity now in my products!
il_570xn-1012584361_bszg
* What your plans are for the future with your work

I am officially an entrepreneur now and I love it. Besides Etsy I have opened my own web-shop at Purepranalabel.com and I am so proud of that step!
I do like to sell on Etsy, so that will not change, but I’d like to be more established as a label, so I do think my own site will help me with this. My goal is to be known as ‘that label that sells amazing beautiful and sustainable meditation cushions’ and has stellar customer service!

il_570xn-1003829289_cuqg

Saturday Salute to Etsy Texas Artisans

Tonight I wanted to do something special for all my Texas neighbors on Etsy.com
I was not born in Texas, but spent my early childhood growing up in Midland until I married and relocated to Rankin, Texas. If you look Rankin up on Google, you will see that its a TEENY, TINY desolate area that is home to around 500 people, including yours truly. So, to all my Etsy friends who live in Texas, this wonderful Christmas Salute for Saturday night is for you!

I am going to start of this Christmas feature with a well known saying: “Everything is BIGGER in Texas” and I can tell you that when it comes to Texas Artisans, the enduring charm of cowboy culture goes above and beyond!

My first featured artist is from Killeen, Texas; KayzKreationz. This shop is full of Stained Glass Mosaics, Art Glass, Fused Glass, Beaded Bookmarks, Wire Jewelry and more. One item I fell in love with this Mosaic Stained Glass Bird-feeder! Featured in Birds and Bloom magazine, her bird feeders have TEXAS size style! Looking for a unique birdfeeder for your garden or as a gift for a gardening friend? This is it. It is a mosaic birdfeeder with stained glass, set in grout. It is 8 1/2″ across the top from rim to rim. It has a yellow star, blue and white bluebonnet and mosaic Texas as it’s design.

Have a unique Birdfeeder for your garden that’s not like every other feeder in the stores and people’s yards. This birdfeeder could also be used as a small birdbath in your yard, if you like. The grout has been sealed, but is safe for the birds.

Corpus Christi is home to my next featured shop GirlieGals who offers you sparkle and shine Texas style! What would make a better gift for someone special than this Gold Pandora Christmas Bracelet with Poinsettia Charms, to tempt you even more, this bracelet is on sale! Price reduced by over 20% Dec. 3rd only. Free gift with this purchase!
Extremely beautiful – these pandora style gold plated crystal studded beads and clear crystal faceted beads will dazzle all on their own.

Each charm hangs from an antique gold tube bead and has a dangling silver lined red seed bead for extra shine.

My next featured artist quidditydesigns is in Georgetown, TX. Her shop is full of beautiful Texas style flair like this Copper Flower Pendant Necklace with White Freshwater Pearls and Silver. Five softly burnished copper petals surround three pistil/stamens made of white freshwater pearls on fine silver headpins. The copper flower is about 1.75 inches, so it makes a statement. I made the necklace long so that it would fit over a turtleneck sweater.

I think Killeen Texas must be a popular place to reside, another resident from there is jdfootloose. It doesnt usually get too cold in Texas so her items are perfect for the winter months, like this Autumn Patchwork Scarf! A great Autumn statement piece. Crocheted in multi colored & Golden yellow yarn in various size squares to give it a patchworl look.

Houston, Texas is home to my next featured artist BirdsBeadsTX, her shop is full of delightfully fun jewelry! Check out this great necklace made up of matte, faceted black beads and printed shell tiles in orange, blue and silver with a toggle clasp closure. It measures approx. 34 inches in length.

Saw-tooth hanger included, no vinyl used!

Here is a town I have never heard of! Bastrop, Texas; home of my next featured artist NMCJewelryDesign. Feather earrings are all the rage this season, surprise your BFF or that special someone in your life with these beautiful Wild Turkey Feather earrings! We don’t usually see turkeys this way, especially during this time of year..and especially wild unadulterated ones…for their beauty. These are feathers from a wild turkey and have been cleaned and assembled into an amazing set of earrings. The pattern looks near that of a tiger with the black and orangey brown stripes. They are topped off with a tigers eye gemstone and black crystal just waiting for you to show your wild side. Due to the natural materials (and the fact that the feathers were discovered on a walk) these are truly one of a kind.

Victoria, Texas, a town I have actually been to is home to RomanticThoughts. Dazzling Texas style jewels to dazzle your special someone with this Christmas! The glass Blue and Green Pendant is the centerpiece of this unique creation. The necklace is comprised of Blue and Green Swarovski crystal beads. This striking piece is designed to be noticed.

Texas is actually wine country, a great many wonderful wines are produced in Texas, who knew?! This brings me to a great Etsy shop CorkyCrafts from Fort Worth Texas. This shop has some very unique Texas style gifts that will delight even the hard to please! This wreath makes a nice gift for the wine connoisseur in your life! It is like a wine lover’s scrapbook of happy memories. It is very versatile, add a pillar candle or a vase of flowers for a lovely centerpiece. It is a great way to extend a warm friendly welcome for visitors and neighbors in a entry way, dining area, bar, Tuscany themed kitchen, and makes a great gift idea for those who love wine! Compare prices and save by purchasing it here!

Next is my very own leadeer from my Etsy team “STATTEAM”, she is responsible for the huge success of “The STATTEAM Spotlight” which runs Monday-Friday, she does an amazing job! Lubbock, Texas is home to BeckyHelmerDesigns. Her shop is full of Texas style beauty, like this Red Flower Ring! It is adjustable so it would make the perfect gift for practically anyone on your holiday shopping list!

Last but not least brings me to little ol’ me, based here in Rankin, Texas is this hot pink bangle with zebra print crosses. A TEXAS style statement piece that is sure to get some “Yee Haw’s” when you give this as a gift!
This gorgeous bracelet is a OOAK, you wont ever bump into anyone else wearing a bracelet exactly like this one! I started with a wooden bangle an applied 4 coats of Hot Pink paint, applied crosses that I created from polymer clay and then hand detailed the zebra print. For a finishing touch I added brilliant and dazzling rhinestones and a clear coat gloss to waterproof this lovely creation. This would make a wonderful gift to give someone special or to keep for yourself!

I would like to send a big ol’ Texas hug to all of ya’ll out there!

Peace, Love & Hippie Chic Jewelz

Friday Night Finds

Tonight it is too cold for me to go out with my family and do anything, plus the fact that I live an hour away from civilization doesn’t help, either! So tonight I have browsed some new shops on Etsy.com and found some sweet Christmas gift giving ideas, I think you will like them as much as I did!

My first fantastic feature find is from Etsy shop ageratum with these delicately sweet Angels of the Rain Forest natural amazonite lily bead earrings. These very unique and lovely dangling Angels were created with hand carved natural amazonite (lily shaped) beads and I have added 6mm swarovsky light peach glass pearls, antiqued silver wings, and sp jumprings. They dangle about 1 3/4 inches from the top of the platinum plated silver french hooks. Be so Merry and the talk of the party wearing these loveliest of Holiday earrings! Enjoy and Always Be Beautiful wherever you are!

I visited next a great shop SQResources, and happened upon this lovely OOAK Knit Cowl (Lime and Turquoise Art Yarn)OOAK cowl knit with a beautiful functional art yarn from kittygrrlz.etsy.com.

The colors include shades of lime green and turquoise. The cowl is a 10 inch by 18 inch rectangle whichis designed to be worn many ways by adjusting how and where you close the ends with the stick pin (which is included)

My next featured item is from beautifulswagstore with a beautiful Yellow Rose Headband. This is a handwrapped plastic headband in yellow satin ribbon with a large yellow rose headband attached along inset in the middle is a yellow aylric gem inset in the middle. This large yellow rose handwrapped satin ribbon in matching yellow is perfect for all occassions, formal, informal, and semi-formal. I have seen similar items worn as hair accessories, hair decorations, for homecoming events, school dances, coordinating with cheer squad events, wedding or engagement needs. Perfect for that sweet sixteen or an teen mega birthday celebrations. Don’t forget those sorority meetings, parties, and ceremonies.

If you love Cameos, you will love this beautiful butterfly cameo necklace from sydemcgus! This cameo is vintage inspired.

I love trinket boxes, so when I saw this handmade metal box from vintagenowandthen I knew I had to feature it! I LOVE this old metal rustic box with a beautiful sculpted flower on the top! Handmade in Mexico of tin & brass that has developed an awesome patina that only time can create! In very good vintage condition, there is an embossed pattern around all four sides of the box. Approx. 4″ square & 2″ tall, increasing to approx. 3″ tall including the flower. Some rust in interior corners.

Since I have little ones at home, I always have to stop and check out fun things that I think my kids would love like this Green Space Alien created by wigglysee. Crocheted Alien is 14 inches tall, about 6 inches wide.
He is looking for a home on earth with a great little kid. He loves to cuddle and take long naps He makes a great friend for kids of all ages. He crocheted with acrylic yarn, has safety eyes and stuffed with polyfil.

I hope you enjoyed my Friday Night Window Shopping, I know I sure did! I really love handmade items, this year I have pledged to buy only handmade. Buying handmade items has never been so important particularly given the current economic climate. I want my hard earned money to support a person, not a massive corporate company who buys machine produced goods by the thousands at a very low cost and then raises the price by huge leaps and bounds. I want to know I am helping a stay at home, a man who has been laid off due to economic crisis and is relying on his craft to support his family, or the college student who is struggling to make ends meet. To me, pledging to buy handmade is the right choice for myself and my family. I hope that you will consider buying handmade, too!

A little bit about Mad Gardener Apiaries on Etsy

I was recently delighted to learn a bit about one of my favorite shops on Etsy, Mad Gardener Apiaries. grab a cup of tea, sit down, relax and enjoy!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I have been crafting pure beeswax candles for almost 7 years. Immediately after I began beekeeping I started researching the use of ingredients harvested from my beehives to make my own health products. I bought two candle moulds, some wicking and a block of beeswax. I was so thrilled when I made my first candles…but the thrill quickly faded. My candles did not burn properly and almost every one of them ‘blew up’. It became immediately apparent that there was alot more to chandling than pouring wax into a mould. I spent the next 4 years playing and learning both on my own and from every reputable source I could find.

I have dedicated my life to the search for truth. This began with my gardens and transferred to my bees and then to my candles. I have learned that we are chemicalizing and killing our bees and in doing so we have contaminated the world’s supply of beeswax. I researched the history of chemical use in food production and in beekeeping. I found numerous studies, as far back as 1980, that prove the chemical saturation of certain sources of beeswax.

This is what drives me…I must find the truth..in my bees and in life. I put the highest value on the change that is necessary on our planet in order to insure the survival of all species. Whenever I hit a wall or find difficulty in fitting into the system I turn to learning. When I learn I see new things and open new doors. This refreshes my views of the world and allows me to carry on.

I have always had difficulty accepting our capitalist system of cheques and balances. This has been the major reason it has taken me almost 7 years to get this far. I do not believe our central banking/fractional reserve policy system is of any benefit to mankind..as the founding fathers of the American constitution have repeatedly warned. I have decided to use this opportunity to share my information and in turn search for those like-minded individuals in our society who hope to restore our true freedom.

It is my hope that I am able to reach potential customers and let them know what is really going on in our gardens, fields and beehives. Once we start to learn of the truth..it begins to run like a faucet…maybe a few of these individuals will take up the interest in searching out the truth as it pertains to their own life and eventually as it pertains to the planet and all of us.

I love what I do. My bees and my gardens are the foundation of my life. If I am to become successful, I will have been able to teach the truth of our world while making enough money to enjoy my simple country life.

I decided a couple years ago that I wanted to sell directly to the consumer and avoid the middleman. I do not drive and only wholesale to two carefully chosen businesses that I have worked with for a few years. Etsy has been the jumping off point for me…because Etsy is a green and round-up movement..it fits nicely with my goals. Etsy has allowed me to open a shop selling directly to potentially like-minded individuals. I do not know how else I could have accomplished this. I have a website that is to house my information regarding bees, beekeeping, chemicals in beeswax, comparison of different so-called green candle waxes and whatever other informations that I have time to devulge. Most of my info is in my head and is slowly being transferred to the website as I plan on filling madgardenerapiaries.ca with the best information that I can find.

It is our job to make the improvements necessary to ensure the survival of all species and to create a world that we can be proud to leave to the next generation and all generations that follow. It is very apparent that our governments are not interested in improving our existance…they only prey on and decieve the public.
