Swanky Panky

Today's Swanky Panky is all from the treasure trove that is Etsy, and yes I guess I am a bit biased. I hope that even just looking at these little pieces of wonder will give you as much joy as it did me.

This stunning piece is the Anhinga Bird Pin by Adam Smith. It is made of hand-cut, weathered steel and has a 24k gold heart. I see a fragile, somewhat morbid beauty in this pin. It makes me want to wear it over my heart, while sitting back reading Poe in a candlelit library.

I am very taken with the work of Valentines Attic on Etsy. Using vintage photographs, myths, legends and surrealist art as her inspirations, this lovely lady's beautiful work has stolen my heart. Using photo manipulation techniques, she seeks to combine vintage photographs with images and feelings recollected from her childhood. You can read more about her work on Valentines Attic.

The work of Contrary uses lots of recycled materials combined with fine jewelry to create one of a kind pieces. I particularly like this Skeleton Key necklace, as I think it would always make me wonder what mysteries lie behind its door.

And to leave you with a little whimsy, this gorgeous little Wishing Chair necklace from Hoolala. Inspired by the Enid Blyton story of the same name, this piece is no less than magical to me.

These are all very cute, but I really love that chair.

I'm feeling the Poe! If you wear glasses and reading in a dim library would make you sleepy (as in me) a Tim Burton film would suitable alternative!

Ah Tim Burton. I have had quite the love affair with his work since I was a young 'un. Indeed it would be a suitable alternative.
