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.

Mysterious and a Bit Frightening Really.1. Gilded Steampunk Cuttlefish Necklace - noadi
2. 3.5 X 5 Inch BLUE OCTOPUS Print Scalloped Black Border - marystracle
3. Cold Rain On Warm Skin - gorjuss
4. Squid Bronze Pendant - dragonstreasure
These tentacled creatures are everywhere. From viral videos of vampire squids to mass produced octopus charms added to, well everything. As always I looked for things that were a little bit different. I found polymer clay creatures, art both cute and slightly scary and a hand cast squid pendant. I still don't ever want to meet one outside an aquarium though.

Thank you for avoiding that darn ubiquitous octopus charm! As usual, you found items that are gorgeous, unique, and show some real thought in their creation.

I love Noadi's work especially. I'm going to buy a pair of her hairsticks after payday.

AJ: Cool! I hope you like them.

Agreed on the Etsy Octo... too much of a good thing. I adore that Blue Octopus print, so much personality!

And thanks for the linkage to Cephalopod Tea Party!
