Fun and Funky - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

 

 

In the Urban Dictionary, I found this fascinating description of the word "funky" as it comes to style:

 

"Funky can be a mixture of thrift store and name brand, lace and leather, a simple gold bracelet and a huge plastic pink one, matching or unmatching, a ton of jewelry or none, classy and trashy. Being funky is about taking risks, and not being afraid to get a stare or two from people who wish they could be as funky as you . . . funky is never about boring."

Autumn Oranges and Browns - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade

Even though the temperatures are still getting in the upper-80's to mid-90's here in the Borderlands region, the nights are dropping down into the mid-60's at night.  Autumn is definitely in the air!  I have noticed some of the leaves on some of the bushy sumac trees are beginning to turn.  Due to lack of rain or the shorter days?  Probably both.  But it is nice to see the slide into my favorite time of the year.

Boho Inspired Handmade Necklaces and Earrings, New from Shadow Dog Designs

 

Despite being gone quite a bit - and dealing with roofers, AC repairmen and painters once I got back - LOTS of new boho inspired handmade necklaces and earrings have been added into my Indiemade shop.  Each are one of a kind; most I could not reproduce exactly even if my life depended on it!  Many of the necklaces and earrings below use components from other artist friends in the design.  That truly makes the designs unique!  If something catches your eye, please click on the live link below the photograph to see more pictures and information.  Enjoy!
