Etsy Shop: Ruby and Jane

What will I find in your shop? Fashionable hair accessories and jewelry.

How did you come about opening your shop? I learned to make crocheted baby booties from a neighbor. I really liked the booties but they needed something more so I invented a pattern for a flower to go on top of them. Later I was looking for new flower ideas on the web and ran across this headband from Abercrombie and Fitch with a flower that wasn't as cute as mine for $32! I thought it was so ridiculous to pay that much for a cute headband so I started toying with different ideas. I soon realized that I was much more talented at the hair stuff than the booties :) However, I still wasn't wanting to give up totally on crochet so I came up with the earrings.

What is your favorite item in your shop? My tatted earrings. Even though they are the devil to make, and I will probably end up with carpal tunnel syndrome thanks to those little babies...there is a timeless grace about tatting and I plan on creating even more designs to sell.

What is your favorite Etsy Shop?
(I know cliche but who doesn't love this shop?!?)
(My dream is to be able to knit and crochet like she does)
