A - Blogging from A to Z - Challenge - 1st April 2012

Letter 'A'

Welcome to Anna's Adornments, which is a blog about jewellery-making by hand and anything else that either helps or hinders my creative process. 'Anna's Adornments' also happens to fit the first letter of the alphabet - A is for 'Anna's Adornments', as well as for April! But A is also about some other things.

For Blogging From A to Z in April I will be showing Etsy treasuries that I have curated myself.

For those who are not familiar with Etsy, a treasury is a list of items from different Etsy shops that any Etsy member can pick and make a photo-collage. The rules are simple: choose a theme, but only take one item from each store and do not include your own items! 'Spread the love!' So there are none of my own pieces included here. But I will be showing my own work on later posts.

For the letter 'A' I have chosen two themes: 'Amythest' and 'Apple'. 'Amythest' is a gemstone, the birthstone for the month of February, and 'Apple' is a delicious and versitile fruit, that grows on trees.

To show my treasuries for this blogfest, I am using treasury-widgets supplied by Craftcult.

Here are today's treasuries: 'A is for Amythest' and 'A is for Apples':

Best wishes,

Anna, delightful. I have a question for you later. This jewelry is so unique.

Welcome to the A-Z Challenge. You'll find you have to comment a lot to get many comments back. Get your name out there!

I hope you'll drop by to read the stories on RFW and I'm showing one of our RFW friends, Laura, on L'Aussie tomorrow.

Hello Anna.
I love purple in any shade. My wife likes to put apples in our salads. It's very yummy. Nice selections. Good luck with the challenge!

I'm combining A-Z Challenge & NaPoWrimo.
