Necklace fun

November 23rd, 2007

I wrote about the Stephanie Simek eyelash necklace before, but I actually just bought one and it’s even prettier than I thought. The chain is very delicate and the “eyelashes” are beautifully made. My mum took one look at it and said it was creepy and weird, but I absolutely love it. I got it from the stephanie’s  etsy shop.

I also got this goldfish necklace from Paraphernalia on etsy for a very reasonable $17.00. I’m now tempted by the silhouette necklaces, but can’t decide which one I like best so maybe I’ll just wait. Their shop is full of great stuff and worth checking out, could make an A+ christmas gift for somebody.

    Hehe, I can see why your mum would think so, but I think it’s gorgeous too! Even the goldfish one is pretty. I’ve actually been eyeing up the crab necklace from Paraphenalia, that might go on my Xmas list. :) I also adore the purple dress you wore with the eyelashes necklace! Just out of curiosity, where did you get it from?

    Lol, when I put the Stephanie Simek necklace in N.E.E.T., my mum said it was creepy and weird too!

    Those etsy stores are incredible!
    Now, this is only a suggestion, but do you think you could make a post with all your favorite etsy shops? I imagine loads of people would be grateful, this being the holiday season and all.

  4. Never mind! Due to my brilliant e-sleuthing, I found your store and consequently, your favorites. This deserves a prize of some sort.

    Oh, and as an aside, I think you’d really like Kara Walker, if you haven’t seen her stuff already. She does the finest paper art/silhouettes I have ever seen.

    What?! I just posted a follow-up comment that did not post. Lame. It said something along the lines of, “Don’t worry, I’m a clever e-sleuth who found your etsy store and then your favorites. Hurrah!”

    Then I also added:
    “You should check out Kara Walker’s stuff, ’cause I’m certain you’d like her.” But I did not tell you that I saw her stuff when I was in NYC, and it’s much more impressive in person. As most art is. Apart from the Mona Lisa.

    Those necklaces are beutiful, I especiallt liked the one with the gold fish. On their site it says it’s made out of acrylic, but I don’t really get it, is it stiff or soft? How is it to wear, heavy (if it is stiff) or does it turns folded and silly-looking?

    Thinkin of putting it on my wish list for christmas, if they can post it to Sweden that is…
