Handmade First Friday Fall Favorites

This is my selection of First Friday November 2016 Fall Favorites. I picked some items that are in the First Friday Art Walk hosted by the AWETeam (Art Walk Etsy Team). This is a monthly online event. It is a meeting place for Etsy AWETEAM members to add handmade items from their Etsy shop to an "Event Thread". Please check out the 2016 November Event Thread. This event is designed to support art and handmade! Now, look at my favorites--
Favorite DYI:

Friendship Bracelet Kit by Marsha Neal Studio

Fall is a great time to line up a DYI project or locate one for a Christmas gift. This kit by Marsha Neal Studio lets you to make the adult version of the friendship bracelet that you made in your youth. You will love the luxury of the silk on your skin, and the shimmer of the glass beads when you wear them.

This is the Marsha Neal Studio Fall Orange and Black silk color palette.   She has made a custom bead mix to coordinate, and has picked out cotton cord and her ceramic bead glaze colors to give you a palette that works together. 

Favorite Fall Dog Collar:

I think all dog owners experience a time when walking the dog is a chore, but who doesn't love to walk a dog in the fall! Custom hand tooled leather dog collar by AcrossLeather is finished in the vibrant fall colors crisp as the autumn air. This dog collar is 2" wide with 1.5" stylish tapered ends. It will fit extra large dogs with neck sizes from 20.5 to 24.5 inches with 5 holes located on 1 inch centers and would look great on many extra large dogs.

Favorite Fall Earrings:

Of course, I have to include a pair of my handmade earrings.  I don't know about you, but I wear a lot of browns and peaches in the Fall. These textured brown ceramic earrings are a perfect fall accessory.  They are earthy and rustic. 

Favorite Fall Bracelet:

Casual style beadweave bracelet by ARexrodeCreations is perfect for a pair of blue jeans and Fall apparel. It is created to look like a starburst in all the popular colors of today.

Guess what these Etsy shops have in common. Besides having great handmade items, they are all physically located in Delaware! Delaware is small but it has a mighty art community. There is an organization called Delaware by Hand.  This Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016,
Delaware by Hand and the Biggs Museum in Dover, Delaware are having an artist members' trunk show that coincides with First State Heritage Park’s Seventh Annual 18th Century Market Fair. Admission is free.  I will be there from 9:00 am. to 4:30 pm.
