If you are unfamiliar with Etsy, it's pretty much the coolest site ever. No longer do you have to travel to New York City, or spend months looking for a really cool, one of a kind, handmade piece. Artists of all kinds upload "shops" of all their goodies where you can make secure purchases via PayPal. For Mother's Day I bought the most unique ring for my mom... a real Sea Urchin to wear upon her finger...
This Staroftheeast beauty comes all the way from Turkey!
These are a few of my current lusts:
SpiroCreations: Custom fit. Gorgeous supple leather. Yum!!
Hand In Heart Necklace/Bracelet Multi Faceted Malachite and Sterling Silver
by my favorite: VeryMaryJewelry
Shehitpausestudios is by far one of my favorite photographers on etsy. He has been
featured in Nylon.
A little spooky, but this VooDoo bracelet by OrganicGirls
this one-of-a-kind is "loaded with various "charms" including tiny pocket knife, vintage rosary, old cross found in an arroyo in New Mexico, horn and bone objects, African trade beads, skull beads with tiny droplets of blood red Swarovski crystals."
I find SO much that is just TO DIE FOR on Etsy. I will definitely keep posting my favorites here.
