Monday'as Featured Artist ~ Teresa of etsy's "Trusk4u"

I have been friends with many talented jewelry artisans and Teresa of "Trusk4u" has been a close friend for some time now! Teresa is a fellow member and Moderator, of the "EJDSS Street Team" that I also belong to! She donated the beautiful jewelry that will be awarded to this month's winner on the "EJDSS Team Blog"! She handcrafts her beautiful designs using many mediums and techniques! I hope you will visit her shops!

Here's Teresa:

"I have been a creative and resourceful person ever since I can remember. My first real crafting love was sewing, and I have tried countless other crafts. Jewelry making started as another hobby, but has grown into an obsession! I love everything about it from choosing the materials and actually designing something beautiful! Selling the piece is the icing on the cake!

I am always looking to learn new techniques and expand my knowledge and skills I am happily married, have two grown children, and two dogs. My roots are in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan (the portion that is on top of Wisconsin), and I've spent most of my married life in the Chicago metro area. We've lived in North Carolina for several years now. I am a proud member of the "Etsy Jewelry Design and Supply Shops Street Team"!

Here are links provided by Teresa! I am sure you will find wearable, works of art stunning!

***Teresa also sells locally at "Whimzee LLC", a craft co-op store in
