Great Etsy Seller -- JewelryObsesssion!

Okay, I make a lot of jewellery, so the pieces I actually buy have to be really special and feature techniques that I just don't have. Here's an example. I just bought the above necklace, Nightshade, from Etsy seller JewelryObession, who's inspired by the jewellery of times past but recreates it using a mixture of techniques, including chain maille. I think her work is just stunning -- evocative, detailed and romantic.

I can't wait to get this lovely necklace and to wear it for a concert! Thanks again, JewelryObsession!

Please visit her store: JewelryObession at Etsy.
