Hello, again, everyone! Guess what day it is? It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another roundup of some of my favorite Etsy items! This week I went with a macrame theme because it's been making a comeback recently and there are a large number of items out there that are gorgeous. Enjoy!
Item #1 is from SophiesWhatKnots
If you don't have a lot of space around your home for plant stands and such. These macrame plant hangers might be something you should look into! You just get your potted plant and plop it right into the macrame wall hanging. Enjoy your plants indoors if you've got allergies or if it's to darn hot outside!
Item #2 is from MandalaTropical
I almost didn't search for macrame jewelry because I honestly thought there wouldn't be any---boy was I wrong! The first piece of macrame jewelry I found was this pair of hoop earrings. I wouldn't have the patience to do this--it'd drive me crazy! The hoops a a nice detailed design that is complimented by the macramed (is this even a word?) bottom. You've got two options: this one and then one that more of a curved point. Both are really pretty and would definitely be a statement piece. Have a specific color you'd like--you've got 22 color options!
Item #3 is from TangledPretty
I like how simple this wall hanging is---not that it's easy to do, but that the pattern is calm and not a wildly detailed one. It's got a nice minimal vibe to it. It has what looks to be driftwood as the main anchoring piece for the macrame portion, which adds to the bohemian flair of the product. . It's also a good size for a statement piece in your home or work area--18 inches x 26 inches.
Item #4 is from LeahNoelDesign
I really, really, like this necklace! I just love it so much! It was the second piece of jewelry to catch my eye...no it may have been the first but I don't remember. I like the combination of colors--very soft but still very powerful with the navy blue. The balance and texture are great, too. Even though the colors are different shapes and used in different amounts, they do so well together. If you look closely, you'll see some mint-colored beads running at a diagonal on the piece. They add a bit of a pop of unexpected color that really compliments the others. The size is nice too--not to big or too small (very Goldilocks)--3.25 inches long including the fringe and 3 inches wide. If you're into boho or even if you're not, you NEED this! I NEED this!
Item #5 is from ColeFineArt
This is another piece that I need in my life right now...this gorgeous macrame dream catcher! The color and texture are very well-balanced. The black ribbon and the dark color of the hoop really make the white pop. The use of texture in this piece is extraordinary--you've got the center of the dream catcher, the many different types of ribbon, a feather, and the smooth hoop. I really like the pom-pom fringe :) Get this to catch all the nightmares and have only sweet dreams.
That's all I have for you this week my lovelies! I really hope you've enjoyed this week's items! I thought I'd come up with a theme and find products that matched it in some unique way that you normally wouldn't think of (like Inspire Me Fridays--check those out if you haven't). Now, head on over to your favorite handmade site, shop, and show some artists some love!
Until next time,
