I wasn’t waiting for the treasury on Etsy to open up or anything, but earlier today, someone posted an announcement on Twitter that it was opening up soon.   I decided to try and snag one, but I apparently missed it by just a minute or two. 

Well, fine.  I’ll put together my own collection of favorites!  I’m in a vintagey-steampunky-military-ish mood, and these items have all caught my eye in the last day or two (actually, I’ve been coveting a couple of them for a while now).  They are full of wonderful details and embellishments, from antique lace appliques and faux fur hems to metallic thread stitching and exposed seams.  With innovative construction and interesting lines, each of these handcrafted beauties would be a terrific addition to a seriously cool wardrobe.

*** Shop News ***

The last day to order for the holidays from my Etsy shop will be December 20th!  You’ll still be able to order after that, of course, but I might not be able to get your purchase out to you before I leave for Kansas on the 23rd.   Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns about your order! 

Happy shopping!

What do I do with all of these? I know I can send my silver back to the supplier for credit, but what about base metal?  It’s times like these when I wish I had a rolling mill so I could melt this down and roll out new sheets.  (Do you think anyone has ever asked for a rolling mill for christmas?) 

*** Holiday Shipping Announcement ***

I recommend ordering holiday purchases by December 17th for domestic destinations. International orders vary in shipping times, so the earlier, the better! I’ll be making every attempt to get orders out the door as soon as possible after receiving them until I head out to Kansas on the 23rd.

Take a look at my updated Ready to Ship section for gift ideas that will be shipped in 1 to 2 business days!

Gifts for Guys

With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, all sorts of fun, frilly things are for sale.  The problem is that they are mostly items for women.  This is great, as it gives our significant others plenty to choose from, but what about the guys?  They need cool stuff, too, but where is it?

The Etsy Gift Guide for Him is a great place to start. Of course, it’s not inclusive – it skipped my shop!

I’ve just introduced my first piece of jewelry for men – the Cupertino Ring. It’s a piece of sturdy 20 gauge copper, formed into a band, hammered for what almost looks like a snake-skin effect, and sanded to a matte, brushed finish.

I’ve just ordered a bunch of new material from Rio Grande and am revamping my work station.  Watch this space for new and exciting items that will make perfect Valentine’s Day gifts!  In the meantime, I’ve already got a gift section set up in my Etsy shop, AntiGenre Arts, full of sparkly treasures, including my Cassis and Lillium Earrings.
