The is definitely love at first site, small artsy objects made with textiles and a lot of felt and embroidery the shop is filled with cute and fun stuff for the home... I had to post the minute I saw the bee on Etsy!!
Check a few of my favorites:
Traveling from the Caribbeans to Goa in India, always from one beach to another that Francesca had the idea to create sandals with a piece of tissue to don't burn the feet and Paka shoes were born.
The concept was then finished with the buttons that allow tissue to be changed so that you have many different patterns and colors in only one pair of shoes and you can always have one to match your outfit.
The concept and the brand are registered for the USA and Europe.
I love leather and that's not new but Colin Francis Designs are new to me, new shop on Etsy and is a new concept for leather jewelry.
Cuffs and chokers are laser cut, hand finished and patina can be applied to leather.
Result is modern and stylish adorn pieces... my favorites are the tribal lace designs off the scrolldown cuffs, the bee house of Hexed Again cuff, The geometry of Panes cuff and the stunning extra long Scaled Up cuff.
Brincadeira de Metal = Playing with Metal, was the frist words that came to my mind when I started to search a title to describe Esmeralda Designs.
Christina Bjenning designs are exquisite to my eyes ... I think she is doing alchemy with the metals like a druid making magic potions... recycling metals, fair trade gemstones and rough conflict free diamonds makes Esmeralda Designs even more special!!
My favorites are the Material Girl Ring, The Incredible Journey Ring and the Serenity Necklace.
