M!spunktuation Jewels

About: I've always imagined pieces worn by characters from literature, heroines and adventurers of history and fiction, and even reinvented my own jewelry collection because it was simply not ME. I make pieces for those women (and men!) who aren't part of the mold, don't want cookie-cutter jewelry and accessories because THEY aren't cookie-cutter either.

While my educational background consists of art history, genetics, anthropology, and forensics, it's my dabbling in art and DIY that has allowed for me to take my visions of what jewelry should DO for the wearer and make pieces which are both relevant today and will be decades from now.

Ranging from light-weight simple neck pieces to be layered, metallic bejeweled body chains with ethnic flair, and hand-sculpted pieces that are a bit more eccentric, m!spunktuation is both edgy and rebellious. Bones and blood cell necklaces, Game of Throne-inspired rings, and pieces with mixed elements can only be found here.

With every piece, I encourage everyone to find their uncommon.
What You’ll Find: Beautiful, edgy, hand-sculpted jewelry

FM Photographs
About: Well, I am from Italy, and my day job hasn't anything to do with arts, unfortunately. That said, since I was a teen I had a passion for photography. I began taking photographs with an old russian made Zenith camera that my father once gave me, and since then I never stopped.
At first fascinated with landscape and nature photography, in the last few years my subjects changed a bit, and I'm now interested in street and travel photography, as well as candid portraits.
I like to photograph anything that spurs an emotion in me, and I always try to convey that emotion to anyone is looking at my photographs.
About a year ago I finally decided to open an Etsy shop for my photographic prints, and since then I have been trying to sell them, without much luck, till now ;)

Emily Alice
About: I'm Emmie (Emily) - from Emily Alice :)

I am a jeweller, based in the UK. I make sterling silver and gold plated jewellery - handmade in my studio. (by me)

I'm a fan of living green, so my packaging is made from recycled materials - even the ribbon. I don't use strong acids in my studio anymore, only vinegar. I also plant a tree for every piece I sell.

My work is inspired by happiness, love, passion and the science behind them - I make jewellery that represents molecules like serotonin and dopamine. But, I approach my subject from an artistic foundation rather than a purely science angle. I studied silversmithing at university and pride myself on creating very high quality pieces and commissions for my customers.
What You’ll Find: Sterling silver and gold plated jewelry
Budget: $90- $930
Your Special Discount: Shop Emily Alice Black Friday thru Cyber Monday receive 10% off of all orders with the code huckleberry.  
Young Texan Mama
About: I started my shop a couple of years ago when I was going through my collection of vintage sewing patterns. I have always had a deep love for vintage sewing patterns ever since I got my very first one from my grandmother over 5 years ago. Since then I have been collecting them, but my collection has grown to a point where I wasn't truly cherishing the ones that I have. So I wanted to share them with others.

Since the birth of my son in August of 2011, I have been much more motivated to get my shop growing. I adore sewing and that is the main focus of my hard work. I find sitting at my sewing machine immensely therapeutic and I could sit there making things for hours on end.

My hope is that people will cherish each and every one of my creations as much as I cherish making them.
What You’ll Find: I love making things for little ones, especially car-seat blankets, clothes, and backpacks for toddlers. During the Holiday's, you can find Christmas stockings, tree skirts, and more.
Budget: $3- $60
Your Special Discount: Visit Young Texan Mama now thru December 15th and receive 10% off of your purchase with the code HHGG10.
