Elements & Artifacts review

I have recently discovered the joys of etsy, and one of the neat little shops I found is called Elements and Artifacts by stardust, also known as Alicia Dabney, of San Francisco.

Alicia creates one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by many histories, cultures, ages, and movements. If you're searching for a truly unique piece of jewelry, her etsy shop is the place to go.

I stumbled across Alicia's shop when I was looking for autumn-themed items for my upcoming Autumn Leaves giveaway. Her trinkets were just what I had in mind, and I am thrilled to announce that she will be giving away one of her special pieces.

As for me, I had to have one too!
This is the piece that I got.

It's a leaf painted in antique silver, and accented with a cascade of garnet, amber and baltic amber stones. Perfect fall colors for a perfect fall leaf.

This is the back view. See how you can still see all the veins in the leaf? Pretty!

Alicia also has an art and jewelry blog here.

Visit Elements and Artifacts at etsy to purchase your own beautiful piece and watch out for your chance to win a stunning creation by Alicia in my Autumn Leaves Giveaway Event in the next week or so.
