Must Haves - the Ring

I thought I'd share some of my favourite Etsy finds.

Check out the fabulousness wrapped around my finger! This kimono ring was one of my first purchases on Etsy and I have been wearing it ever since. I think I love to buy jewelry as much as I love to make it.

I love the ring's simple design, the colour (of course), and the fact that it was expertly handcrafted with love makes me love it even more! It was a custom ring made especially for moi by Les Things. Jealous? Then you should head immediately over to her shop.





Here's a closer look.....



If you have some favourite purchases or shops, I'd love to hear about them!

Beautiful ring!

I love Etsy for the exact reason you indicated: the products have been made with love :)

I can also relate to buying jewellery even though I make it myself. Everyone has their own unique fingerprint when it comes to jewellery design and THAT is why I absolutely enjoy shopping for jewellery on Etsy...my creative style is very different from others, so I'm always finding things to "oooo" and "aaaa" over.

Thanks for the heads up on the Etsy shop. I will definitely check it out.

As for my fav shops on Etsy...oh boy, I have many! Too many to list here but I have purchased some great items. See links below to view :)

I wear these earrings a lot...they remind me of the jewellery I saw at the Museum of Archeology in Athens.

This ceramic pendant has received oodles of compliments. I like the way it resembles a sea urchin!

I really like this artists paintings and the big globular eyes she gives her characters. I have this underwater one in my bathroom.

I have purchased numerous t-shirts from this company for both myself and my husband. The quality is great and their designs are so unique.

Whew, I should have told you to brace yourself...LOL! Sorry to take up so much space here.

So sorry. I clicked onto the links I provided you with and realized that they led to the wrong images. I wonder how that happened? Maybe the links were too long and were cut. Here they are again.

I love buying rings too. Mostly because it's the one thing I don't make myself. I love the Kimono ring you showed, it's stunning!
Here is a ring I bought from one of my favorite Etsy Jewelers- Jade Scott
