~KellysJewelry Unique Bottle Cutlery Board~ Etsy Review & Giveaway!

*Giveaway Closed*

When I first saw KellysJewelry's Etsy shop, I could hardly believe my eyes! These are the neatest cutlery boards I have ever seen! You really have to see them to understand and they really are very unique and each one is one-of-a-kind!

I wanted to feature this great Etsy shop for my "Spring Into health" blog event, because I thought these would be very handy for chopping so many healthy foods, such as fresh herbs, spices, lemons & other fruit, garlic, onion, your favorite organic cheeses and to serve healthy appetizers!

Also these cutlery boards are recycled and environmentally friendly! Plus they are small enough to pack for camping out, or picnics! And would make great gifts for just about anyone (hey, even those people who have everything and are so hard to shop for! Lol!)!

I like the colored glass cutlery boards! A very unique, and "older bottle" look!

KellysJewelry also sells some very pretty, handmade jewelry! Like this beautiful Sterling Silver Rosette Chain Mail Pattern Bracelet!

I love the look of this Silver and Copper Bracelet and Earrings Set! This is a piece of jewelry that I would like to have! And it would go with so many outfits!

Meet Our Featured Etsy store and Owner!
Here is what the owner of KellysJewelry shared with us about her and her store:

What inspired the name of your Etsy store?
What inspired you to open your Etsy store?

-I am an art teacher and a couple of years ago I took a jewelry making class. I made jewelry for several members of my family as gifts and when they showed people that they worked with, their co-workers started requesting jewelry. I used old jewelry boxes to put my jewelry in and as a joke my husband started covering up any names on the boxes and writing Kelly's Jewelry. It was getting hard to keep track of orders and payments, so my husband set up an Etsy sight for me. I have continued using KellysJewelry for my shop even though I do have more than jewelry in the shop now. I also post some of my paintings, slumped bottles and other things that I have made
Would you like to share a little bit about yourself?
-I teach art and and am married to an elementary teacher. I have always been very interested in all types of art and love to learn new skills. I take art classes any chance I get and also teach book making classes for other art teachers occasionally. I have recently been working with oil paints, clay, and precious metals.

Anything else you would like to share with us?
-My husband and I consider the environment to be a very important issue and try to limit our waste. One way we do is by "upcycling". Even though glass can be recycled, it isn't always done and could eventually end up in a landfill. By creating something like a cutting board, that is not disposable, makes it less likely the glass will end up in a landfill than if it were made into another disposable bottle. I really enjoy slumping bottles in the kiln because I never know exactly how it is going to come out but they are always beautiful. Glass is also one of my favorite materials to use for making jewelry and I normally have items made from seaglass posted in my shop."
