I am so excited!
Anima Designs
is my FAVORITE source ( it really is - I've said this before) to buy unusual
and cool jewelry design elements.....I have recommended them many times imagine my surprise, when from out of the blue, they contacted me and asked permission to feature ME in their newsletter!

June Customer Spotlight: Concetta Williams

As a new monthly feature of our newsletter, we plan to focus on customers who are making great art and jewelry with Anima Designs purchases. We hope to help drive more customers to the featured artist's blog, etsy store or website.

Today, our focus is on Concetta Williams, a mixed media artist with "a passion for the unusual and bizarre" who lives and works in beautiful Kauai, Hawaii. She has an etsy store:

and a blog:

Connie has made the most fabulous jewelry using her Anima Designs purchases. Take a look:

Gothic Owl Art Necklace

Be sure to see all of her handcrafted jewelry and artwork on her blog and in her etsy store! (all photos used with permission). I personally have my eye on a pair of earrings that I would love to add to my collection!

Please visit Connie today!

If you would like to be featured in an upcoming issue of our periodic newsletter, please send us an email at

Please provide your full name and a link to your website, etsy store or blog with pictures of your creations using Anima Designs products. We will select one customer per month. The benefits that you will receive will include a featured spotlight in our newsletter with links to your etsy shop, blog or website, a link on our links page at and a $10.00 gift certificate usable in our store. (You are, of course, under no obligation to use the gift certificate. It's just our way of saying thank you!) We can display up to three photos of your work, with your permission, of course!

In each newsletter, we will focus on explaining in depth key features of our new shopping cart system so that you will better understand how to use it.

While our new system does not technically allow you to save your shopping cart, if you have either logged in, or entered your contact information, but have not checked out, your shopping cart remains active. What this means is that we are able to see the cart and to send you an email which contains a link to your cart, enabling you to complete or modify your order.

If you have not completed the contact information, we can still see the cart but are not able to identify it with you. So if you've browsed our shop and placed some items in your shopping cart but want to complete your order later, please be sure to either login to your account, if you have one, or to enter your contact information, including an email address. We will be happy to send you a follow-up email that allows you to complete your order.

Please note that until an order is completed, all items in the cart are subject to pre-sale so there may not be the same quantity available on an item as when it was first placed in your shopping cart.

Connie, I am so proud of you and the recognition that you are receiving - you most definitely deserve all accolades! Your art creations are exquisite and funky and artful!! I sure am eyeing those calla lily earrings - are they very heavy? About how long are they? My ear holes have about grown closed since I never wear earrings anymore, but these would be worth re-opening my ears!

Connie, that's awesome! Congratulations it's well deserved!

Know what's weird? Not only do we share a first name, for 12+ years I was known as Concetta Williams. What are the odds?

Anyway, congratulations!
