Om Shanti Handcrafts is the Etsy shop of Kate Jones of Longmont, Colorado. Kate's interest in handcrafted items began with a gift of bath salts, combined with a propensity for buying beads, and, as she says "It's all kind of snowballed from there. Yes, snowball is a good word. So is avalanche." Kate has been creating bath and body products for about three years and jewelry for one year, and began selling these on Etsy and at shows in February of 2008.
Kate creates handcrafted, all-natural, herbal bath and body products alongside a variety of beaded jewelry offerings. One of her favorite pieces to make was the "Shindig" necklace for a monthly challenge of the Big Damn Crafters (pictured above). She has found that her soaps and lip balms both sell very well in her Etsy shop. She does custom jewelry work, and can create custom labels for her bath and body products--perfect for a personalized touch for special events. Om Shanti Handcrafts has plenty of great gift ideas for the holidays, including gift certificates for those who would prefer to select their own items!
