the Muse’s Gift Ideas: Etsy Gifting!

Shopping Etsy for awesome gifts is one of my very favorite past times during the Holidays. I have alot of people in my life that are the types that, “just have it all”, I’m sure you have one or two of those as well. That’s when I know I can turn to the world’s Online Craft Market and take advantage of really awesome gifts and presents for my friends and family.

It goes without mentioning by me, that the greatest Etsy kawaii jewelry around would be Helen, from Beadpassion. I featured Helen a year or two ago and I’d like to bring her out again for the Holidays and introduce you to some of her very fine offerings that will make a perfect gift for yourself or a friend or family member who adores very cute, sweet jewelry pieces.

Check it!

Helen resides in the Phillipines so if you’re loving this post and the gifts ideas in it, I do urge you to take advantage in a timely manner since airmail does take time to arrive in the US particularly during a busy holiday season! Helen makes no guarantees about delivery but I’d just thought I’d throw it out there if you’re wanting to get a gift from her shop so you can do so quickly. I imagine it’ll arrive in time but no guarantees!

So what makes Helen’s shop so special?

It’s definitely the kawaii factor!

Helen makes little works of jewelry art and one particularly specialty in her online craft store would be cupcakes which make their appearance in bracelets, necklaces, and even rings! Her work is amazingly detailed, brilliantly crafted, and just overall a really unique and special item. Not only are you getting a really special piece of jewelry but Helen’s prices are crazy budget friendly compared to other shops selling similar items but not nearly as gorgeous as the ones you can get at Beadpassion!

I asked Helen if she would please submit some of her favorite pieces that we could view and she really went all out.

Is that Goldfish Cupcake Necklace stunning or what?! Such detail!

You can learn more about Helen, Beadpassion, and see photos and my review of her products by clicking here and here.

I hope you’ll find a special gift for someone at Beadpassion!

Happy Holidays!

Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with Beadpassion or Helen, I’m purchased from her in the past and have ever after been a fan girl of her offerings!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.
