BESTeam Feature: Redemption Art

Aloha! Let's visit Redemption Art's etsy shop this week.  I love visiting this eclectic vintage shop which is located in the beautiful state of Hawaii. Connie has a knack for finding treasures from all over the world on this paradise island! I always gravitate to her Asian finds. Connie mentions that Chinese immigrants arrived in Hawaii around the late 1700's. By the mid 1800's, they had found a settlement in downtown Honolulu.
Here's a gorgeous sea foam green vintage Chinese cloisonne dish. The color combinations of sea foam green and the pink of the peonies create a striking look.

 Here is a vintage Chinese green Porcelain glazed pottery jar that was unearthed in downtown Honolulu.  It is about about 80 years old, possibly older, and in very good condition.

This is a vintage magical Dragon Bracelet made of mixed metals. In Asian cultures dragons are considered auspicious and will bring good luck,wealth and prosperity.  This is a unique piece that just might bring some good luck your way!

So stop by and have a look around - check back often as new items are added regularly.

BESTeam Feature: Absolutely Kismet

Absolutely Kismet has been a long time member of the Besteam!  She began creating her own wine charms, stitch markers, and jewelry when she could not find the right gifts for family and friends. Everything she found was too basic or too expensive. So she created her own and personalized them for each recipient, who loved her creations! If you need  a unique and customized gift, look no more.
I love the Alphabet Wine Charms! These can be customized so all the letters are the same color to match your decorating style.

You'll also find a selection of glass beaded necklaces and bracelets. The Bright Orange Necklace is a hot color this spring, according to the fashionistas at Pantone - Tangerine Tango - will be popping up everywhere. 

Necklace - Bright Orange Shell 17.5"/44.5cm

The Clear Glass Bracelet is the perfect accessory as it goes with everything! Wear it alone or add it to your other bangles and bracelets for an arm party!

Clear Glass Beaded Bracelet 8in/20cm
