Lost Things Found

In my time on Etsy, I have come across so many talented individuals.  I'm constantly amazed by the creativity I see.  When I came across Sojourncuriosities in Etsy chat, I was floored.  I had never seen such gorgeous items and attention to detail...I knew I had to own some of her work.



Not only is her work out of this world, but Sarah (the face behind the name) undeniably talented, she's one of the sweetest and sassiest people I know and has quickly become a friend.  Her work centers around historic hardware, vintage buttons, genuine sea glass, and found natural materials, such as shells and stones and is inspired by nature and history, folklore and fantasy.


She takes objects many of us wouldn't normally look twice at, and turns them into treasures worthy of fairy tales.  From amazing sea glass and pottery collected by herself near her coastal Maine home, to gorgeous vintage skeleton keys, hand-wrapped with wire and beautiful glass beads, everything she touches turns out breathtakingly beautiful.



At the moment, I'm the proud owner of two of her pieces...one gorgeous skeleton key that was a birthday gift to myself last year, and one stunning sea glass pendant (shown above) that I bought a few months ago as a celebratory gift for hitting 100 sales in my shop :)  I can honestly tell you, I wear then all the time and each time I do, I get complimented on them...they are just stunning!

Take a few minutes to browse her Etsy Shop, you won't be disappointed!  You can also find her here on Blogger and on Facebook and Twitter!
