Featured Seller: ChiliMango

One of the best things about Etsy is that new shops are added all the time, like this one ChiliMango. Emily recently started selling jewlery on Etsy, although she's been a member on Etsy from the beginning.

Based out of California she finds inspiration in the warm tropics and nature. I was impressed with the unique construction of this necklace - orange Japanese seed beeds and a yellow canary faceted lucite bead are strung on turquoise waxed cotton cord, twisted to make up the fun focal pendant.

Priced at $10 it's a great gift for a friend or for yourself!

In addition to her day job and Etsy business, Emily also created a social network called "Do You Etsy?" - a friendly place where Etsyians can promote their work, trade tips and support one another. It's a great resource for sellers, my favorite part of this network is the video section. Here are some of the great videos you'll find:

  • Indie5Collective Channel for Etsy Artist - daily videos where you can learn about Etsy communities, meet other sellers and get tips for starting your business.

  • How to videos for promoting your shop with myspace, facebook and twitter.
  • Etsy Lab videos - packaging, photos and more
Lots of luck to Emily and her new business!!
