Handmade Earring Review and GiveawayCLOSED


Getting to know Ekaterina (katrinshine)
Where are you from? and a little bit about you
My name is Ekaterina Fedotova, I’m 29 y.o.. I’m from Russia but from the last 2 years I’m living in Brindisi in Italy because my husband is Italian. I have been an artist all my life and I have been loved to do something creative for me, my family or my friends. I finished Art School and this can say all for you. For many time I worked like advertising designer in publishing house. From my childhood I like very much all kind of needle and craft work. I sewn dresses for my dolls or something for me and my family. I always try to put in my job some part of me.
What items do you carry in your shop?
I create textile jewellery, bags and pillow covers in Patchwork spiral stile, boned corsets and bustier and also medieval and historical dresses. I like to sew anything, but my favorite technique is Patchwork Spiral stile. This particular technique gives room to imagination as small pieces of fabric assemble an inimitable design, that’s why every piece of work made in this style is very unique and original.

How did you decide on your shop name?

It was the name of my first E-mail )

Do you have a blog, twitter, or facebook page?

My blog: http://www.katrinshine.blogspot.com/

Twitter: www.twitter.com/KatrinFedotova

What or who inspires you?

I inspired from colors and textures. When I see some amazing fabric I at once have many ideas what I can create from it. Brindisi is a small antique town in the south of Italy, in region of Puglia. It’s the region of vine and olives, it has long history and many traditions, and it’s inspiring me.

What items in your shop do you most enjoy making and why?

Patchwork bags, because it’s more unique and original, it’s impossible to repeat this. Every bag is very particular. Also I like to sew historical dresses because I like participate historical festivals.

Anything else you would like us to know?
I love working with custom orders, so if you didn’t find the bag in color what you want you always can order it. I can create any corset you want. All corsets and dresses in my shop I can sew in other color and size.
My Thoughts

For this review let me start out with telling you all about the packaging. Most of you know how much I believe in handmade items. I Also believe that there are many things etsy sellers can do to their items to make then stand out and be extra special. That is exactly what Ekaterina has done. When I opened up the envelope I withdrew a box that was just as decorated and beautiful as the earrings it contained. The box has a pretty pull string and was decorated with dried flowers. Simply gorgeous!

Now on to the earrings. Ekaterina has a very unique style of jewelry making. She uses fabrics and I love it. I received a pair of BLUE TWILIGHT Earrings that contain three strands of chain dangling off them. They are very delicate looking and are a pair of earrings that will make me feel very beautiful and special on a night on the town with my hubby. They are extremely classy and unique. In fact I received many complements each and every time I have wore them!!Earrings are not the only item that Ekaterina sells. I encourage you to go check out all of her stunning items!
