Almost the Same Name... Still Awesome!

Here is yet another fantastic Etsy shop, this one belonging to a dear friend of mine.   Please visit the shop,
 octobermoondesign and check out her positively gorgeous Celtic-inspired work.

She has a beautiful assortment of jewelry, pocket mirrors and assorted artwork.  Her art pieces are fanciful and modern, very colorful.  No matter what your color scheme, there will be a match in here somewhere to pick up that perfect accent color and tie it all together. 

 I think this one is particularly nice, very feminine and evocative of nature.  Indeed, that's her title:  "Soul of Nature."  These are all original artworks, and created with mixed media, including  such varied things as colored pencils and photoshop.



                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Here is one of her jewelry items:


This is a hand-done small artwork framed into a darling casual necklace.  I rate it as a 'must-have' for any animal or bird lover.  The little owl has such personality!









Below is one of her Celtic inspired items---


Isn't this a lovey mirror?  Just imagine how special you will feel checking your makeup in a "Dancing Goddess" mirror! 

This is another artist/crafter with an extremely reasonable price point for her works.  They are original, beautiful, unique, and yet still very affordable.  If you're looking for that perfect, yet different gift, look no further!

I, personally, have a large problem with the viewpoint that says, "If it is inexpensive, it must be of poor quality."  That, I feel, is only true of the mass-market import wares found at large chains such as Wal-Mart or Target.  When it comes to original artwork, who among us, in today's economy, would not appreciate the chance to own or give a beautiful, hand-crafted and unique piece at an affordable price?  I know I would! 

I realize there are two posts today, featuring crafters with very similar shop names.  It can get confusing, as there are innumerable variations possible, some a subtle as the insertion or omission of a single space or other character, making it "unique" in the eyes of a computer program...not so much to us poor humans. 


Now--time to go shopping!  :-)
