Happy because…

Do you remember when I told to youabout the fundraising for Geca Onlus?

Well, I’m very proud to say that our team collectet almost 100,00 euros to donate, and for that we thank you all!

In the meantime, one of the pendants that I donated to the shop has been sold! I’m very happy!

And here is the beautiful and nicebuyer:

I think that necklace seems to be made for her!

And in September everyone gets ready
for Halloween! But how? Already? Yes! On Etsy everything goes faster
and faster! The atmosphere, in short, is already more than autumnal!

I decided to try my hand with a bangle, a bracelet of rigid polymer clay. I used Kato polyclay here. The
creation is quite complex and definitely “in progress”, but I wanted to show you a little preview:



I’m experimenting with the creation of some “home made” textures, because the creation of texture is fore
sure one of the techniques associated with polymer clay that more stimulated my imagination so far and then I think that textures are
almost always highly effective.
In greeting you, I remind you that the campaign is open until September 9th, then I invite you to visit our  Etsy Italia Team Shop and My Shop.

These are two items that I’ve donated to the EIT Charity Shop. I called the first one “Heart Stone” because, well…you can see it! It’s made of semiprecious stones (mostly Agate stones) and liquid polymer clay.  All around there’s a wire caston. Every item for this charity selling has an heart shape because GECA takes care of young people affected by heart deseases.

The chain is adjustable and has four possible lenght to choose from.

I like the light of this piece and the fact that the liquid clay creates a translucent base for my stones!

The second donation is called “Polymer Heart” and it refers to one of my passions: 8guess what?) polymer clay!

I realized this one with a solid Kato Polyclay black base and a thin layer of golden leaf. On the top, there’s a thinner layer of translucent clay (I found that ToDo Clay is the most transparent of all! Perfect for golden/silver/copper leaf works!).

The pendant is reversible, so one can chose from time to time if wear a black heart on white background, or the complementary combination. Furthermore, it’s divided into three parts, so one can shuffle them and create new patterns.

I’m very proud for the gift-bag too:

You can find both items here, in the Etsy Italia Team Charity Shop:

Press Release

It’s now open the first GECA ONLUS Charity Campaign launched by Etsy Italia Team.
Etsy Italia Team, along with all its contributors, has decided to dedicate a charity campaign to GECA ONLUS, a no profit association born to sustain and help people affected by hereditary cardiac deseases, and their families.
From July 9 to September 9 in our charity shop you can buy the beautiful hearts handmade by our team. At the end of the campaign the entire amount of the donations raised will be given to GECA ONLUS.


Etsy Italia is bound to this association because it takes care of ARVD patients, a desease that affects a young friend and a very active member of our team.

ARVD (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia) is a rare genetic heart desease that causes arrhytmia. Its diagnosis ins’t simple and is unfortunately a not much known and often underestimated pathology.
In general its symptoms appear during the adolescence and the first adult age (15-25 years). The main symptoms include irregular heartbeats, cardiac decompensation and sudden blackouts.

It’s a progressive desease but it can manifest itself with sudden death as first “symptom”. GECA works also to sustain and promote a correct prevention.
To know more about this desease, please visit our EtsyitaliaTeam Blog and read the story of Vera, written by herself:
