All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

That which was old, is new again.1. Steam - PENDANT- 1921 Vintage Ephemera - sushipot
2. Miniscule Earrings - German Manuscript -aminyitray
3. Pendant...Nautique No. 04 - gallimaufryarts
4. Antique Vintage Ephemera Cuff Bracelet Ornate Caravan - myhools
You'll find at least dozen different people making pendants from ephemera, but it takes someone special to make pieces of old paper look, well not new, but worthy of wearing as jewelry. Just the right images selected and expertly prepared. I found many fewer makers constructing other forms of jewelry. Earrings and bracelets were hard to find, but when I did, they were gems of creativity and simplicity sure to attract attention.
