It’s always a treat for me to peruse Etsy for the artists and crafters that make up the HandmadeMN Etsy Team.  We have a lot of members and I’m often surprised when I come across a shop I’ve not seen before.  Sparkflight is one of those shops.

Sparkflight is filled with magical, amazing  wire work.  Twisted and formed by hand, straight pieces of wire are transformed into astonishing pieces of art.

Black Stone & Bright Copper Netted Pendant Necklace

These pieces of art are often wearable in the form of necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, but art for display is also available in the shop. Look at this cute little oriole. Incredible work!

Oriole Wire Bird Sculpture

The types of wires used range from stainless steel to copper and everything in between. Most times (if not all the time) the copper wire is recycled. Yay for recycling!

If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind swirly, twisty, breath-taking piece of wire art, take a look into Sparkflight. You’ll not be disappointed.

I am so fortunate to live in Minnesota where there are so many talented artists and crafters.  I was recently impressed with an artist from Richfield, MN who has one of the coolest shops in Etsy, Unique Art Pendants.

One of the reasons I like this shop so much is the vintage/nostalgia theme throughout.  I’m very inspired by nostalgia and Molly’s shop is overflowing with vintage illustrations put to very creative use.

It’s hard to pick out a favorite, but this one is definitely in my top five…

Ouija Board Cuff Bracelet

If you’re scared of the Ouija Board (I know a few who are) perhaps you’d like to look at Molly’s vintage prints.  A layered effect on old dictionary pages makes for beautiful artwork.  Collect a variety from her offerings for a lovely focal point in your favorite room.

Art Print APPLES

I don’t know anyone who isn’t enamored with the sweetness of a locket. Molly has created precious pendants in which you can tuck away secret photos of your dearest. I especially like this one…

Locket-Alice In Wonderland

Unique Art Pendants is a wonderful place to shop for a gift or to adorn yourself with impressive, beautiful, funky, nostalgic pieces of wearable art.  Congratulations on your success, Molly!
