Etsy Shout-Out - PinkSnakeJewelry

Since I've recently reopened my Etsy shop, CraftyGirlMerch, I've been spending a lot more time on the Etsy forums. I could get lost for hours browsing the promos section :) Every now and then, I come across items I just have the urge to share - hence, today's Etsy Shout-Out!



Handcrafted Artisan OOAK Karen Hill Tribe Fine Silver Etched Metalwork Bohemian Hippie Rustic Minimalist Gypsy Long Dangle Hoop Earrings 



These earrings, as well as the majority of the jewelry pieces from PinkSnakeJewelry, are one of a kind - so if you like them, I suggest you get them before they're gone! :) 


Until next time, stay crafty!
