I "Favorite" a lot of stuff, some of which I do intend to purchase when I have a little extra. One thing I recently bought myself (and am so glad I did) is the below pendant from New Hope Beading :
I had "convo'd" Caroline about one of her pendants, which was the periodic table symbol for silver and asked her if she could customize the same idea for me, but the element Mercury, because...well, I'm Elemental Mercury!
And look how cool it is! I had big plans of making a funky cascade with a multi-beaded strand for it, but couldn't wait to wear it so it's on its original leather cord (and yes, that's the geode from the gem/mineral show I'm wearing with it, I think they look cool together).
Caroline makes personalized charms, mother's necklaces and bridesmaids jewelry and has some very cool pendants that she has designed and stamped. She was lovely to work with, as well.
On the selling side, yesterday someone purchased one of my flower hair clips, and I'm almost sad to see it go. I keep all my hair clips hanging from wide ribbons pinned to my inspiration board so they brighten up the studio while I'm working.
|I'm crazy about these earring wires from Blue Moon Beads|
I think they turned out cute and I hope she likes them.
|I don't even know what kind of flower this is|
supposed to be, but I'm digging it.
I also made a bunch of new fall flowers for the shop that I still need to photograph and upload.
I happened to find some black roses with black leaves and they cracked me up, so I now have black rose hair clips as well as some cream colored roses and bright orangey-yellow mums. This purple bad boy is all mine, though, I totally love it.
As much as I wander around Etsy, I know there's something like approximately 800,000 sellers. Do you have a shop? Do you have a favorite shop? Have you bought something lately that just tickled you hot pink? If so, hook this Etsyholic up and post a link in the comments, because I can't get enough!
