Featured seller: OpulentOddities
I found myself browsing on Etsy one day and I noticed a nifty little feature on the front page called shop local. If you click on this you will be directed to a page that showcases other sellers in your area. That is how I found the delightful shop OpulentOddities and her mother's shop merchantofkismet.
OpulentOddities specializes in the most unique jewelry I have seen on Etsy. Each piece has an intricate story behind it. Jordan, the shop owner, pays special attention to detail. Each of her items comes gift wrapped in a kraft box stamped with a skeleton key tied with ribbons or vintage lace. She has a very solid reputation in the Etsy community and has reached 1369 sales and 100% positive feedback...WOW! Her store is an inspiration to us all. I could only dream of being as successful one day. Pictured is one of Jordan's pieces called White roses. Here is her description & story:
"She was beautiful just the way she was, but she dolled herself up for her gentlemen friends, dressing in rhinestones and lace and rouge, a white rose tucked behind her ear or between her teeth.
Beautiful celluloid white rose is the focus of this fancy statement necklace. Two beaded earrings, made from Czech glass seed beads, and were once screw backs from the 1950s, hold up a beautiful 1940s rhinestone brooch that looks like a keyhole, which holds up the beautiful dimensional white rose. On brass chain with a brass lobster clasp. From the top of the beaded earrings to the bottom of the rose measures 3.5inches/9cms. The chain measures 24.5inches/62.25cms."
