K is for Kinetic

Continuing with the theme of blogging the alphabet, we're now at the letter K.  So, today is brought to you by the letter K and the word Kinetic.  Kinetic is an adjective that is pertaining to motion, caused by motion, or characterized by movement.  I've made a small collection of Etsy artists' listings that are kinetic and listed them below.  Enjoy!

First, here are some items from my Etsy shop, BeaOtch.

Don't you just love the way these strands simulate movement and orbits?  I do!

J is for Jade

Oh, my!  Sadly, I've been neglecting my blog.  Let's get to it!

Continuing with the theme of blogging the alphabet, here we are at the letter J.  J is for jade.  Jade is a beautiful stone of many shades that has been used for both utilitarian and ornamental purposes throughout history.  Here I will focus on the ornamental.

Here are a few of the listings I've made that showcase jade.  For these pieces, I've used olive jade.

Below you'll find listings from other wonderful Etsy artists that use jade in their works.

There are tons of jade listings on Etsy, and I've just scratched the surface.  Take a look around for more here:  Jade Search on Etsy.  Please feel free to leave a comment in the section below for this listing or ideas for a K listing.  Thank you for reading.  See you next time!
