It's everywhere, it's everywhere! Been contemplating making another Snow themed Pendant (here's the last one for those who missed it).

I am out of lavender, however, so I'd have to do a variant. I should go through my winter supply box, of woods I gathered last winter, like oak, hawthorn, ash and cedar.


Speaking of, I thought "trees" would be a good search word to find my etsy feature for today's post.

Also, this would be a good time to mention that the FAE (Fantasy Artists of Etsy) street team Exhibition is currently "Through Glittering Trees"

Probably my favorite item from this Exhibition is the Yggdrasil Medallion by SplendedFish. Yggdrasil is the World Tree from Norse mythology, and is thoughtfully wrought here in 18 gauge brass. I would also highly recommend flipping through the rest of their Etsy store, as many of their pieces of jewelry are strange and beautiful, and wonderfully unique.

The other thing I found (as "trees" was a bit expansive a search, I narrowed it to "trees winter") that really popped out and caught my eye was ParAmourDesign's clear bangle bracelet with winter panorama scenery. The black silhouettes against the crisp transparency gives this piece a quiet elegance and beauty. There's honestly not much else at the shop right now, but we hope to see it stocked, soon, with more such lovely pieces!

Thank you so much for showing my Yggdrasil Medalion, and for the nice comments!

To show my appreciation, if anybody orders anything from my Etsy shop and mentions your blog, I will include a free pair of earrings!

I like your little vases, no matter what's in them. Is that fake snow? lol Pretty bangle.

Storybeader: no, I never put synthetic or fake elements in my vials. The snow one contains a blend of two gemstones, opal and white fluorite, with a sprig of French Lavender.
