Etsy Find: Rainbow Necklace made of tiny colored pencils, made by shop Tash Tash Jewelry
If you like handmade, rainbows, and Etsy, you will love this Fimo Clay creation from Tash Tash Jewelry. For only $8.20 USD this necklace would look great for someone artsy, don’t you think? In her shop you will find earrings, bracelets, necklace, earrings and other handmade creations. The artist’s medium is clay. Ironically, this necklace looks wayyyyyy too real to be clay. Alena says “I don’t use any modeling molds or anything, it’s all handmade.” Amazing!
Handmade Greeting Cards by Anastasia Pruce on Etsy are lovely and colorful.
Etsy shop Anastasia Cards has all home made greeting cards. They are made with color, love, buttons and baubles and appear in any color palette. The one above, is $10 and full of rainbows for your special birthday greeting. Anastasia Pruce, the artist, is from Wellington, New Zealand. We think these are a great idea rather than spending $6-$10 in your local retailer for mass produced cards. A one of a kind handmade gives such a nicer touch…

Update: as of May 2017 this store is no longer on Etsy, links have been removed, but this is just a great example of the cute things you can find on Etsy!
Now you can get elastic hair ties to match any color of your wardrobe. We love these ruby reds by Knotisms on Etsy, only $5.99. Shop owner is Rachel and she’s from Jupiter. Florida. She says, “Creating things is my hobby, I love trying to figure out how to make something and the practice-makes-perfect aspect of it. Also, for some reason, I seem to really enjoy the business part of owning a shop. “
Rachel says she’ll be taking her business with her to college in the fall. After all, it’s so small it could fit in a bookbag now couldn’t it? Rachel says, “I love these little hair ties because they can tame wild hair (like mine) and because I get to play around with the colors from all the beautiful things that I see in the world around me.”
We have to agree. The color is wonderful! She has many colors in stock!

Photo: Cute Little Canvases Shop on Etsy has these decoupage Lotka bottles
I simply love the colorful creations in Etsy shop “Cute Little Canvases” . What you are looking at here are unique and custom made decoupaged Lotka bottles. Each one is one of a kind and all are very colorful. If you are looking for a particular color this should be no problem as the shop owner Danielle has them in every color of the rainbow. Bottles average $20-$25 affordable, and are simply adorable.
Her feedback is lovely and these bottles would look simply lovely with a single rose or even a fake flower on your desk or in your design studio. Add some color to your life! Feel good about owning an upcycled bottle!
Connect with her on Facebook and Twitter also!
