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.

They weren't exactly what I was looking for, but I'm glad I found them.1. Mephisto's Tears Sterling Silver Sculptural Coiled Necklace - RogueWire
4. Steampunk Gears - metalforge
Sometimes I search with a mission, sometimes I let the search lead me in new directions. I looked at these things and thought, 'well, that's a thing'. A coiled pendant inspired by classical music reminds me a bit of lovecraft. A head, yep an awesome head. Shadow puppets and metal wall art. Somehow it seems right that I combine them all together in my little cabinet of curiosities.

I love that phrenology head, but eek $75 is a lot in this economy...and I also would love to have that gear piece on my dining room wall, somehow the gears turning would complement the act of digesting don't you think?

p.s. I came by your blog by clicking on Etsy as our interest, if you get the chance, pop on by my blog and tell us: "What do you want?" http://dish-dish-dish.blogspot.com/
