I love buying stuff on etsy and receiving parcels in the mail from all over the world. It’s like opening a birthday or Christmas present every time one arrives. While it is exciting it also makes me feel good because I am doing my bit to support handmade - well that is what I tell myself anyway.
My latest purchase on etsy was an adorable pair of Little Love Earrings by Joanna Rutter. They came in a box that was tied with red and white string. They looked tiny in the box but were a perfect size when I put them on, which you can see in the photo I took of the earrings on myself (which is hard to do by the way). I love the elongated shape of the hearts and the texture they have been given. They are modern and cute at the same time.
The rest of Joanna’s shop is filled with simple shapes from nature including a number of different birds such as chicks, canaries and robins. I especially like her earrings that feature a different shape on each ear like her Bird and Branch Earrings that have a bird on one side and a branch on the other.
