Mano Celebrates Etsy Store Review and Giveaway

By 9:56 PM , , , , ,

This posting is the eighth in a series of posts about my favorite Etsy stores. 

Below is a post on one of my favorite Etsy stores to buy unique, fun, pretty jewelry from...


Mani, the owner of the Etsy store Manocelebrates, loves color and art and her jewerly shows it! Her pieces are full of color and feature lots of wildlife (especially birds) which most of my readers know I love! Here is a sample of a few of her beautiful works:





Mani lives near Disney world in a community housing called Eagles reserve. She loves to live in Orlando because she lives very close to both Disney World and Sea World . Her husband works for Disney so they get to visit often (lucky her right)!

Mani told me that the truth is that she never thought she would be an artist. She finished her college degree in business (same as me!) and started working with a financial institution as a loan consultant. She got sick and had to stay home for few months which is where she started socializing with other area artists. She started drawing and then painting, pottery, knitting, interior decoration, designing and jewelry making. As you can see this girl has talent! 

She usually goes to craft stores for craft shopping. In 2008, she ran into one woman at the store, who told her that there is a handmade website called “Etsy” where you can put your items for sale. She started listing items very slowly and watched how quickly they sold. She would also go on forums and read how to improve traffic and photos etc.

Mani says, "I create jewelry or I should say I design jewelry more than creating it. I love nature, and also vintage things. I try to combine a bit of new material and bit of vintage material together. Since I get bored by doing only one type or style of designing, I divide them into lockets, choker, lariat, bracelets, rings, and hair pins."

Mano is her nick name besides Mani so she decided to add celebrates to her nickname to make it sound joyful and exciting and thus the name for her game (sorry couldn't resist...STORE) was born.

I got the following awesome Robin Egg Bird Nest Vintage Bronze Locket from Mani. The cute necklace is 24" long which is the perfect length in my opinion.  The vintage brass round locket is decorated with wire wrapped turquoise beads forming a nest and is finished with a vintage brass sparrow, vintage bronze chain, and lobster clasp. I think this just might be my favorite necklace I own! She also has matching earrings and a bracelet to go with the locket that I think I might just have to order...ok so maybe not the earrings (I don't have pierced ears...I know...crazy right?!) but the bracelet is adorable! Here are some pictures of this awesome set:


(isn't it awesome?! Loooove it!)


Another couple of pieces she sells that I am coveting are below:

  56. Most online stores and companies provide excellent values and discount prices because they do not have to pay the overhead of owning a physical business that will cost them insurance, employee pay, taxes and more.
