ETSY WEIRDNESS??? Enjoy this one or not??

Ok here goes (deep breath) an adventure into the weird and wacky side of ETSY. The dark, The nasty, The ugly you name it check out REGRETSY on Facebook or at their website below.



Here is an explanation from them and their site.

Don’t get us wrong. We like crafts.

We just don’t like these crafts."

Yes, we know these people put their hearts into it. We know it took hours and hours. We know how mean it is to laugh at their creations. And we regret being the only web site on the internet that makes fun of things.

But what can we do? We’re immature.

Besides, art is totally subjective. Who cares what we think? I barely care and I’m writing this.

Listen, if you like something you see here, don’t argue with us, go and buy it. Seriously. Click on any photo and you’ll be taken to the seller’s store*. We’re only too glad to have made the introduction.

Otherwise, we’re just going to sit here and look at the amputee kitten paintings and vulva earrings and laugh so hard that we pee in our reusable Pokemon pads.

On a personal note thought some of it gross weird and ugly but still clicked through all 11 pages on there site to see EACH and EVERY one... LOL

Recent Custom work.. Really Gratifying,

Egyptian Scarab focal with vintage glass beads and Turquoise.

Jimmy Hendrix African Trading Beads and coconut,

Wow, is all I have to say about these two pieces. I have been blessed to have a great customer with some really cool pieces and ideas for custom finished pieces he can actually wear with pride.

The Scarab was a gift to my customer years ago and came together nicely with some vintage glass beads he bought in Carmel in the 70's add some turquoise and voila!! he calls this a piece of art.

The Jimmy Hendrix beads on kthe second necklace are another story alltogether, they invloved my customer being in the recording studio in 1967, Jimmy Hendrix was recording that day and had fallen and bumped his head, My customer has a picture with the said Hendrix and bandaged head from the studio that day...

Well I guess maybe Hendrix needed to relax after the fall? so he traded his necklace to my customer for something green and relaxing LOL. The beads I removed from the original necklace are the 5 larger beads which were then added to from some newly found also old smaller African trading beads, Coconut disks were placed in between and now there is a great flow to the piece.

I love working on vintage and antique pieces for my customers!!

Thanks for reading
