Harriete's Etsy Bio says it best about her (which I shall use as I can't find words dynamic enough to even describe her:)

In 2010, Harriete has been inducted as an *Honorary Guest Member* of the Etsy Recyclers Guild Team. This means she is welcome to all benefits of the team, but is not obligated to participate in any official way..... Harriete wears many hats in her professional career, and is involved in a plethora of previous commitments. We appreciate her time and expertise, and thank for being an inspiration to reclaimers, recyclers, metal-smithers, artisans, and eco friendly artists everywhere.
