Artful Unity Joins Esmarts Team!

We are proud to announce that we have joined the Etsy Social Marketing Arts Team, a "global collaborative of mixed media artisans intent on further understanding and applying eCommerce advertising and promotion techniques." It took us a lot of searching to find the right group of people to join up with, and we're glad we finally found this group of talented artists and artisans who like to use technology as much as we do!

Hillary looked through the shops of her team members and wanted to give you a quick taste of some of the amazing things they have created.

Hillary loves the seemingly infinite nature of this swirl ring by Jewelry By Jer.

This painting by Coastal Artist is a beautiful representation of one of Hillary's favorite flowers.

Kicking Bear makes some great Native American items including "Where the Wolf Ran", a handmade gourd bowl carefully painted with an etherial scene of a wolf and other parts of nature.

Magpie Dreams proves that We are in good company as artisan jewelers with her unusual and gorgeous "Waves of Blue" earrings.

There are many other talented people in this group and many other great items that we didn't list here. To find our items, you can follow the previous link or type "esmarts" into the Etsy search.

In addition to maintaining thier own shops, many of these artists have come together to help others. eSMArts has a team shop dedicated to helping others. Every item in the shop was donated by a team member for the purpose of helping someone else. Right now shop sales are going to help a fellow team member who's computer died and who's primary source of income is etsy.

We are very glad to be a member of this team and look forward to contributing to team blogs and other endeavors.
