Etsy Inspired Challenge #55 - The Salty Cat Co.

>> Saturday, September 26, 2009

Welcome to this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge! We have a beautiful jewelry shop for you to be inspired by this week...The Salty Cat Co.

The Salty Cat Co. is filled with wonderfully handcrafted, modern metal jewelry using copper, brass, sterling silver, gemstones, briolettes, pearls, & more!
Aren't these just stunning?!

Now, if you are loving what you have seen so far then you are going to want to make sure to play along in the challenge for your chance to win this week's prize.



The Salty Cat Co. is generously giving this week's winner this gorgeous bracelet!
And in addition to that, another player will receive this fabulous stamp set, Folk Inspired from our sponsor this week Unity Stamp Company! If you have not yet tried Unity stamps, they are a definite 'must have' for any paper crafter!

Now I know you are ready to play! So here is what you need to do:
- Visit The Salty Cat Co.
- Find an item that inspires you
- Use that inspiration to create a project of your own (a card, painting, piece of jewelry, scrapbook page, etc.)
- Link your project up to this post by Friday, October 2nd at noon PST

Here are the earrings that inspired me:

Wouldn't these be beautiful earrings for a bride?!

Oh, I love Salty Cat's work. Here is what I was inspired to create, based on her ring "Dream Ring" - because our dreams should speak from our hearts.
