A newcomer to Etsy, caybeth, made this unique and truly amazing piece of jewellery I have seen in awhile. I fell in absolute love with the complexity and intricate detail that she must have spent hours and hours on, that I was compelled to blog about it. Each bead has been painstakingly stitched on by her, and since starting work on my Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 collection (which is yet to be released on Etsy), I can totally relate. And I thought my rosette necklaces were hard work!
The piece de resistance of this work of art is the rare Miriam Haskell peacock brooch that Karen (caybeth) has used. I.LOVE.MIRIAM.HASKELL. I adore feathers, peacocks, gold, complexity, huge statement necklaces...and my god (sorry I can't stop raving!) this piece deserves recognition in an art gallery!
At $495, in my opinion, it's a steal for a rare vintage brooch and HOURS of insanely hard work. A mass produced designer bag costs alot more than this handmade beauty.
http://caybeth.etsy.com is definitely one to watch on Etsy. Keep up the awesome work!
