Dictionary.com describes "whimsical" as "spontaneously fanciful or playful". If you've ever just randomly browsed Etsy you'll have to admit that the same definition would apply to the term "Etsy" itself. So each Wednesday I have assigned myself the job of finding items that stand out in the "spontaneously fanciful or playful" category, which can be pretty difficult at times. I hope you enjoy today's picks!!
I thought we'd start with what I call "whimsical lite", but what Stellaboo calls, "Kitsch Giant Button Necklace". It's a huge baby blue plastic button that measures 2 inches and hangs from a silver plated 24 inch chain.I like it for its simplicity and fun! It sells for $8.50 and is available from http://www.stellaboo.etsy.com/
Whimsy is no stranger to Chrissy410. Her "Polymer Clay Bottle Cap COW Bead" is both fanciful and playful, and extremely well done! She only has two varieties on her shop site, but we're hope for more animals soon!! It sells for $10.00 at http://www.chrissy410.etsy.com/
What could be more whimsical than Greece and the sea? Greek sea glass! This pretty piece of natural, white, greek seaglass is full of fun with red colored copper wire wrapping and red swarofsky crystal rhinestones. It's created by Ginalimosaics and she calls it her "Sea Glass Necklace red wire wrapped". It is sells for $26.00 @ http://www.ginalimosaics.etsy.com/
For that dressy event that calls for a little whimsy and a little spontaneity consider wearing a "Black Tie Necklace - Cute Enamel Bow Tie with Vintage Faux Pearl Chain Spring Fashion" by Bionicunicorn. The next couple of photos she how understated it can look and how "funky" it can look. It's really a very fun piece of jewelry!! It sells for $26.00 @ http://www.bionicunicorn.etsy.com/
Finally, we have a trully whimsical bracelet made by Frenchaccentbymagali. She calls it, "Whimsical recycled vintage findings with green purple pink beads charm bracelet Free shipping inUS" and it is created from recycled vintage jewelry she has purchased from antique shops and beads and other findings she has purchased from Etsy sellers. She has wire wrapped them onto a large linked, silver plated bracelet chain with a large lobster claw clasp that allows for easily adjusting. It sells for $105.00 at http://www.frenchaccentbymagali.etsy.com/
