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."

 

I love that definition!  It was with that in mind, I decided to pull together a collection of handmade beauties from artists on Indiemade that show more than a bit on the fun and funky side.  These artisan picks are NOT boring.  If something catches your eye, please be sure click the live link under the photo to be taken to the item for more information and photos.
