New Listings Posted on Etsy

Photographing and editing jewelry are some of my least favorite things to do.  More than washing dishes.  I love love love the process of making jewelry but the other stuff not so much.  So last week I made myself photograph some stuff so I can post it on Etsy so I can actually SELL things!!! These are from my Etsy shop called Absynthe Jewelry.  Here's a taste.....

These are some necklaces with hand painted deity pendants from India.  The little paintings are set behind glass and surrounded by sterling silver.  They are hung from a strand of coordinating pearls or semi-precious stones.

I used to work in a shop that sold clothing, jewelry and artifacts from all over the world.  This shop was one of the first of its kind - long before Pier One brought us mass produced ethnic crap.  Anyhoo... working there exposed me to cultures and religions that I would never have known about otherwise.  I was always intrigued by the fierce looking multi-limbed gods and goddesses from India.  Each god or goddess had many incarnations and an interesting story.  These pendants bring me back to those days.
