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.

Cover your face, cover your wall, masks can hide it all.1. Art Nouveau swirly leaves leather mask in black - TomBanwell
2. Painted Bluebird - enameled copper mask - snegoratchka
3. Venice Bronze Mask - ContagionStudios
4. Leather Mask in Silver...twisting curls and tendrils - teonova
There is a special place in my heart for masks, but since it would be tacky to show off my own here, I've found some interesting ones to share. We all love Tom Banwell's complex creations, but here's one of his simple pieces, just elegant. I've also been a fan of the twisty masks from teonova for some time. This copper beauty was a surprising find as was the polymer clay piece that only looks like copper. Amazing on your wall and your face.

Beautiful. They all make me wonder what every happened to Wendy Klein, whose site full of masks I used to visit on a semi-regular basis back in the 90s. I may have to take a look and see what she has been up to.
