BEST of the week: Anastasija of lightkeeping

How fitting - for the week that contains St. Patrick's Day, the BEST team's randomizer paired me with our team member living in Ireland! Let me introduce Anastasija, a Russian jewelry-maker living in Cork, Ireland. She is the creative force and owner of lightkeeping, her online shop of beautiful handmade necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. 

In Anastasija's shop, you'll find colorful lampwork, as well as jewelry assembled from Czech glass beads, semi-precious stones and pearls, along with natural elements. In her profile, she states that she really loves making jewelry, and wants her customers to love her purchases. This is really obvious when you take a look at this sample of her wares:
Green and Violet Lampwork Bracelet - so perfect for spring!
Teal Multicolored Glass Teardrop Pendant - one of my favorites, because I love these colors!
Shell and Lampwork Necklace - the small beads are made from real shells ,and the flower bead is lampwork - I love the use of natural elements this way! This necklace is on sale, too.

In addition to BEST, Anastasija is a proud member of European Street Team, Crafty Ireland Team, Russian Artists, and The Lonely Jewelers etsy teams. As you can see, she's quite the team person, and we are very pleased to have her in BEST! She writes a blog at http://lightkeeping.blogspot.com/ which she subtitles "All Things Beautiful." On her profile she lists many interests, along with lots of favorite movies, books, and music. I'm going back to follow her blog and learn more about this fascinating and well-rounded person! She also shares her latest news, updates, and discounts at http://twitter.com/lightkeeping.

So, as I sign off, let's all wish  Anastasija many sales, a happy St. Patrick's Day, and top o' the mornin' to you! And readers, if you've featured another artist in a recent blog post, be sure to sign in with the McLinky so we can all follow these wonderful features!

TY, ParadisePurls ~ You added your link just fine - but I agree, getting the MckLinky thingy on my blog took a little doing :)

Great featured seller post! I love that we have artists from overseas to contribute to our new team!

Nice post Jan! I love lightkeepings work as well. She has such a flair for beauty. Yeah...McLinky.... was just there....want to use it....can't figure it out :(.

A tutorial on McLinky would be a super happy thing. :o)

TY for visiting, Leo&Junie and Artesia.

Actually, MckLinky does have a tutorial but it's audio & I've never taken the time to listen to it - maybe I should!

Creating & pasting the widget is not hard. What I have trouble with, their pages are so cluttered, I can never find the "Create New" button I need to get started!

What a wonderful feature and wonderful seller! I can't wait to go browse through her shop!

And I've never attempted to use the McLinky. Maybe I should go check it out.
