Favorite item of the week: Totally Day Dreaming Anklet

This week my favorite Etsy item is from Oklahoma crafter (and Deluxe Director) JD.
I'm not really a bracelet person, but I just discovered she makes anklets, too!

I love the blues!
And snaps! What a good idea!

Location, location.....

I recently expanded my crafting repetoire to include resin, and now I'm experimenting with what I can do with it. In the crunch time before Deluxe, I'm trying to make everything I can with what supplies I have left.

I must say, these vintage map necklaces look even better using resin than when I use a clear cab (although those are cute, too):
Yes, I made a Tulsa necklace. I've also made OKC, Edmond, Moore/Norman, Austin and Dallas, as well as other cities that I have posted on my Etsy shop. The Oklahoma necklaces won't be posted because I'm saving them for Deluxe. [Although, if one of you really liked one of them, I'm sure something could be arranged :) ]

I also made a few map lockets using the resin, such as this one of New Orleans:

I even made a Tulsa locket for Deluxe!
If you have a city or town that you would like to see, please let me know! I'm still at it!
I make the city necklaces in two versions; sterling silver and the economy model that you see in the first photo. Sterling silver is $26, while the regular ball chain is $14.
Oh, while I have your attention; I'm always looking for old maps/atlases! Even if they are ripped or otherwise in pieces, please keep me in mind!
I hope everyone else is ready/nearly ready for Deluxe! Two weeks left!

Favorite item of the week: Tiny Signet Ring

I fell in love with the idea of a ring with my initials on it last year, right after I got married. I had a new last name, and I wanted to celebrate it. In Key West, I stumbled across the perfect solution (my new initials being KW); but after massive hinting on our honeymoon proved fruitless, I figured out I’d need to get a ring for myself.
Last week on Etsy, I found this beautiful signet ring by Cherry Creek!

I will hopefully be ordering one of these soon! They are so darling!

Don't judge a book by it's cover...

If you haven't seen this video yet, you need to!
It happened Saturday on Britan's Got Talent.
Let this be a lesson to us all.
