Curated Treasury: "Brave: the Bend in the River"

Our featured Etsy treasuryfor today is curated by Yvette Pederson, from the Etsy shop YForYou, located in Sitka, AK.

Yvette is the owner, maker, designer, curator, and photographer of YForYou. Using the color inspirations of gemstone, silk and velvet, Yvette crafts gemstone wrap bracelets and friendship bracelets, silk applique and velvet pillows, gem topped hairpins, chain and bead necklaces, and unique earrings. YForYou also offers soy candles and rustic chalkboards — all created with you in mind.

"Color is usually what gets me inspired, and started on a project. Just looking at my collection of beads, or fabric, will draw my eye and imagination, and helps generate an idea. I love nature, and the world of color, and these alone fill me with continuous ideas for new projects."

Yvette has been a crafter for many years, creating everything from her children's clothes, quilts, and moccasins, to knitted items, velvet bags, and beadwork. Yvette has always been passionate about creating, and she brings that passion to YForYou.

"Creating comes from desire, necessity, and inspiration. Many, and most, items that I have created come from a desire to have something unique, and something that is 'me' — such as my wrap bracelets. There are hundreds on the market but I wanted one that wasn't out there, so I made one. I love pillows, but also wanted something different than what can be found in local stores. Everything in my shop is something that I love and want to have."

Here is just a small sampling of the items you will find when you visit Yvette at YForYou.
