favorite etsy shops: installment #002

The favorite Etsy shop I'd like to point you to today is olivebrown. Oh my, I can tell you that the fantastic necklace you see here is mine all mine. It is a combination of jasper, crocheted hemp and turquoise, the largest piece of which is one of the best I have ever seen. There is a similar piece with leopardskin jasper right here...just delicious. Tracy has an amazing eye for detail combined with simplicity in her work. This and she also embues all of her handmade pieces with sophisticated style.

Just look at this luxurious, chunky and yummy cowl, designed and handknit by Tracy that also doubles as a hat. Each of her knit pieces hits that perfect balance between simple, cozy and very hip. Easier said than done methinks.

She believes in recycling and repurposing whenever possible. Check out this plastic shopping bag knitted from, well, plastic shopping bags - a fun yet functional piece that fits her design aesthetic perfectly but also speaks to the needs of our environment. Recycle people!

I really love seeing the world through her eyes at her blog simplyolive. Current fashion, photography, style...absolute inspiration.
