I found this little shop the other day while browsing around etsy. I completely feel in love with the bottle cap necklaces and the other products. I liked how everything looked nice and professionally made. I also liked the fact that she can do custom images.

Here is a few of the things that you can purchase from Amber (including what I received):

"Pretty in Pink" Bottle Cap Pendant Necklace with sparkle & beads attached that is brand new and unused.

The necklace that comes with the cap is Hot Pink Organza and measures 18" long with a 2" extender chain with a secure lobster casp.

The bottle caps are completed in a multiple step process in which they are sealed around the edge to prevent them from coming off the bottle cap due to various weather conditions.

0-3 Mos Crochet Earflap Beanie in Sage Green and Cream colors

Approximate Kid's Sizes

0-3 months fits heads up to 14"
3-6 months 14"-16"
6-12 months 16"-18"
12-24 months 18"-19.5"
2T-4T 19.5"-20.5"
5T-preteen 20.5"-21.5"

~~***Pick your Initial***~~

*1" Bottle Cap Pendant comes on a 18" matching necklace made of waxed cord and organza ribbon. The necklace has a secure lobster clasp and a 2" extender chain.

*These caps are cute and very trendy!! They make great gifts or party favors.

*I use resin instead of a glaze, for a nice hard, durable & glossy finish.

**Other images are available and I am getting everything listed on my website. Custom Orders are always welcome. I also wholesale for all those wonderful and talented folks that make hair bows and many other crafts.**

**While they are water resistant, they are not waterproof. Please remove before swimming, showering etc**
This is an amazing bracelet to show how much of the Twilight Saga Series fan you are. This is also wonderful gift for Twi-Fan in your life.

Each bracelet is personally handcrafted by me, it measures 7 1/2" in length and is made with a .925 Sterling Silver Heart Chain with a secure lobster clasp. "Edward's" Heart is a 14mm Swarovski Clear Crystal Heart and "Jacob's" wolf is made of bass wood made here in the US. Every bracelet is individually handcrafted and can be made to any length.

I had this customly made. She has one already made on her sight for Edward. I immediatly had to order one for my Jacob. I mean to support Team Jacob : D I absolutely loved it. It came nicely wrapped and secure. I inspected the whole thing and couldn't find any flaws in it.

Amber is one of the nicest people I have met. When she says she is going to do something she follows through with it. She made sure that I liked the product before shipping it to me. The delievry was excellent and my experience couldn't have been better. So make sure to stop by her store and she what she has to offer you. It would be neat to have a necklace of one of your favorite books. Like maybe Team Peeta, or Team Puck, or whatever suits your fancy.

1. Tell us a little about yourself, the seller behind the store.

I start Custom Crochet By Amber back in 2004 after a car accident forced me out of work. I had been crocheting since I was about 9 years old. I figured why not use it to make some money. So, I did. I took everything from my savings account, cleaned out all my old "creations" from the closet and started my own website and started listing them on eBay. In early 2009, I had read the entire Twilight Saga Series in eight days. I started creating my own version of Twilight Inspired Jewelry in the vision I saw some if it in my head as I read the book. It just grew from that, from glass tile & scrabble tile jewelry to working with bottle caps. I love doing what I do and creating new things for people to enjoy.

2. What's your store about? What do you typically sell or sell the most?

I sell A LOT of Twilight themed Jewelry, regardless if it is a bookmark or a Scrabble Tile charm bracelet with the characters photos on them. But my more favorite thing to sell is when someone has given me a vague idea of what they are looking for and I create it from scratch. Or if someone gives me a family photo to surprise mom with on Mother's day.
3. Why did you decide to open a shop?

I was 23, still laid up after a car accident and bills needed to get paid. I ran out of options.
4. What does your shop mean to you?

My shop is everything to me. I'm constantly thinking of new ways to create and make each batch a little better than the last.

5. Random Questions, pick one or as many as you like and tell why.

Crayons or Color Pencils - Crayons
Anchovies or Pepperoni - Pepperoni
Pink or Blue - Blue
Cherries or Blueberries - Strawberries
Flip Flops or Sneakers - Barefoot ;)

*I did not receive any monetary gain for posting this review. The artist kindly sent me the products in exchange for the review. The review is my own personal feelings. I was not forced to say what I said.*
