Etsy All Hand-Made

Tina Tarnoff Brooches at Etsy copyJust discovered this site, Etsy, it’s all about buying hand-made pieces, from furniture to fashion and everything in-between. I just discovered these gorgeous brooches by Tina Tarnoff on the site. Because they are hand-made there are only a small number of them available but they were only added last week. Tina creates paper-cut images and she made these brooches by setting prints of her images on these antiqued filigree bases. I love the little rose bead that is added to the bottom of the brooch, it’s such a lovely finishing touch. They are so pretty and poignant; the left hand brooch is called, simply, ‘Girl on a Swing’, the right-hand one, ‘Back Where You Belong’.

They are $30 each with $5 rest-of-the-world shipping charges. Bargainous.

    I’ve been a huge fan of Etsy for years – really beautiful unique pieces. Shame there’s nothing like it for Irish craftspeople!

      Hey Sinead!
      You’re so lucky to have discovered it years ago! I couldn’t believe how gorgeous the pieces were and such great prices! Amazing, even if I am a bit slow on the uptake! :o)
      There is something a bit like it for Irish crafts people
      Irish Design Shop
      It’s quite new but I reckon it’s probably going places? Have a look if you get a mo and let me know what you think?! xx

    the Irish Design Shop one is nice. But really not a patch on Etsy. Maybe the Crafts Council will get their act together and create something????

      What a fabulous idea Sinead, that really would be something, I’m sure it wouldn’t take that mush funding to get it up and runnng?
