This week I’ve been perusing Etsy for something a bit different. Something to express how I feel about spring creeping her way into the Northeast. It makes me feel like it’s time to try out new things, to put on my wings and fly. So this week’s favorites are all about wings:
Handmade Blue Wing Butterfly Earrings by Ox Original Art Jewelry on Etsy
Monarch Butterfly Hindwing Pendant by Eyvinds Alchemy on Etsy
Before you fly away for the day, why not click on a few of the bead bloggers links and see what they are up to this week?
