It is February now. I expected freezing days and nights, but instead  – the days are warm and it is just wonderful  to sit in the garden and feel the warm  pleasant sun  . Here are a few Etsy items I found to  celebrate the new  early Spring :


I found this awesome tutorial  on a bird’s nest ring :

Nest Ring - Triple Pearl

I love this combination of pearls and wire . Great idea for an elegant ring!

Round Like a Circle in a Spiral

Lately I have been drawn to spiral shaped items. I guess the spiral theme has been endlessly utilized through history  by artists, jewelry designers,  fashion designers, builders,etc. A classic shape which the human species never tire of. 

While browsing through a few Etsy shops I found a number of attractive samples:

A large handmade purple fused art glass pendant.

Original artistic pendant to my mind.


Rafia’s beautiful and colorful adjustable rings which she handcrafts from Cold Clay  stamped , painted with acrylic colors and coated with varnish.

 So colorful , fashionable and again – artistic! (my own  handmade jewelry shop)

Handmade Sterling silver hoops which I crafted from strips of sterling silver and adjusted them to one another with solder to create a light and every day unique pair of hoops. The effect is somewhat Organic and classic at the same time. Hope you agree.

And another pair,  which I created spontaneously :

Sterling silver Hoops with Garnet beads:

An outstanding shop with beautiful organic plants

The  Spiral Aloe polyphilla  plant shown here , commonly known as Spiral Aloe,  was grown in an organic manner, made with the use of organic fertilizer and no chemicals! The result is amazing!

A stunning  Spiral Tie Dye colorful T-shirt created by:

This T-shirt was created on an American Appeal brand cotton T-shirt!

Makes me indulge in these nostalgic days when, as a teen ager, I proudly wore these  lovely handmade tie-dye T-shirts. We used to call them “Batik”  in this part of the world. The  collection of T-shirts displayed in this shop is amazing!

And last but not least, this Etsy shop:

Where I found these beautiful handcrafted wooden shawl pin/hair stick, handcrafted from hardwood.

The pins are double sided and very elegant and fashionable! Very  delicate and well made!

I could have added endless beautiful items from Etsy creators.  But then I’d have to write a whole new Enyclopedia Brittanica volume. ..So hope you enjoy these!
