MINI MONDAY: "A KEEPER'SJACKPOT

"AKeepersJackpot" EtsyBlogger Mini Monday Featured Artisan



Before I start my first MiniMonday Blog, I would like to say a special thanks to "Cozy" and "TulipsTreasureBox" for doing such a great job creating these blogs every Monday for the past few years.


For my first MiniMonday Blog, I choose to feature Jackie from "AKeepersJackpot", who will also be my co-Mini Blogger!
Jackie has been selling jewelry for over two years now. When she first started her work consisted mainly of beaded jewelry, but recently has begun making handmade pendants as well. She recently has been experimenting with wire wrapping and wire crochet also. According to Jackie, her favorite things to make are necklaces with large pendants that really stand out, but she also says that "earrings are fun to make too". In her shop, http://www.AKeepersJackpot.etsy.com, Jackie has a special section of "discounted" items as well as doing custom orders from Alchemy.




Something new to keep an eye out for in her shop will be fishing lanyards. "I made one for a friend of mine, and thought it would be something cool to appeal to my outdoorsy followers that I like to hike and be outside as much as I do!" Sounds like a great gift idea for those husband who like to fish as a special Holiday gift. Speaking of Holiday gifts, Jackie has some adorable Christmas items in her shop, such as these "peppermint earrings".




When Jackie is not busy working on her jewelry for her shop, or writing on her blog, http://www.AKeepersJackpot.blogspot.com, or hiking (which is her other passion), she works full time as a Clinical Laboratory Technologist in a hospital lab. She has been married to her husband for over four years, but they have been together for almost twelve. They share a home with their two cats, Rocky and Twosie, in Upstate New York.
