Featuring: Chauncey

This is taken from Chauncey's profile:
"Hi, I'm Eileen, I live in Philly, and in a nutshell..... I just plain love making stuff. Always have. Over the years some of the things I've enjoyed are photography, machine embroidery, silk screening and candle making. Glass caught my interest almost 10 years ago and has been my #1 passion since.

The name Chauncey is a nickname that an old friend of mine and I call each other. Its the main character from the movie Being There but more importantly when I hear it, it reminds me that good friends are one of life's best pleasures." *

In a site jam packed with jewelers trying to sell their ware, I found Chauncey in the Boomers Team Forum on Etsy.com a couple of months ago and I'm glad I did. I found her work crisp, colorful and unique. Her fused glass pendants are mini pieces of wearable art made to perfection. She has been an Etsy seller since September 2007 and has sold 62 items at the time of this posting. Visit her shop at http://www.chauncey.etsy.com you'll be glad you did!

*Chauncey's blog address is: http://www.chauncey.blogspot.com
She writes about friendship both off and online and the importance of having and maintaining connections with others.
