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.

See You 
Creepy, creepy eyes. They are darkly beautiful and disturbing.

Robots by Richard Smith 
I ran across one of these when I was looking for reliquaries and the rest were so great I saved them for their own feature.

I may have watched Hellboy over the weekend and that may have gotten the word reliquary stuck in my head.

Art by Nekito

I think this qualifies as darkly beautiful and pleasantly disturbing too.

Part useful, part art and mostly really interesting to look at.

And Pointed 
Now personally I would injure myself instantly wearing any of these, but it doesn't stop me from wanting to.

Sometimes one medium holds an artist back. I think that would have certainly been the case with the owner of this shop. So much amazing in jewelry, sculpture, photography and art. Seriously go look at the rest of the listings!

You know about a year ago I made my first tatted neck corset and before that I had no idea such a thing existed. Good thing plenty of other people did.

Just because you prefer dirt under your fingernails doesn't mean you can't wear some awesome too.
