Artist Profile - KeelyB

Keely Beth, a full-time student and regular participant in her hometown’s “First Fridays in Florence”(Alabama!) is one of my favorite Etsy vendors. Her gorgeous glasswork is her way of combining her enthusiasm for both art and jewelry, and her skill recently won her the ‘Best of Show’ prize at Art on the Square 2007 in Athens, AL! Her keen eye for color and design added to her quality craftsmanship results in beautiful one-of-a-kind pendants, earrings and pins.

My favorite of her available items, her red Tree of Life pendant, is a hand-drawn illustration with richly-toned watercolor, sandwiched between hand-cut, hand-polished and hand-notched pieces of clear and white glass, and suspended by hand-wrapped sterling-silver wires. Add in the fact that she uses recycled shipping materials and offers free shipping on multi-item purchases, and how can you go wrong? You can find her work at, and visit her on the web at
