Fearured "Etsian" - dlk designs - Custom Map Jewelry

There are many great shops on Etsy that sell map jewelry of different sorts, but this Etsy seller creates custom heirloom pieces set in sterling.

The "Journey" or "Daydream" bracelets above are my favorites. You can select your own journey or daydream and have it custom made for you. The maps could be of places you have visited, lived, or even dreamed of seeing. They would make wonderful gifts, and also meaningful pieces of jewelry as a gift to yourself.

Fearured "Etsian" -Omega Art Design

This mother daughter team has done some of the most beautiful fused glass work I have seen. The platter shown in the middle is absolutely stunning. Besides being functional, it would make a lovely focal art piece for a coffee table or even hung on the wall.

Also, check out their darling dog magnets. What fun!
