Etsy Torture

I've lately been obsessed with finding a very particular necklace. This obsession (bad) has led me to fruitless hours on etsy, thinking, just one more click and I know I'll find it! Thinking, okay, it's 8:54 now... I can keep looking until 9:02 but no longer. My deadline comes and goes. I miss it.
I can't describe it, really, but it's got to have these little glass flowers that I'm suddenly smitten with:

Something Blue by vieuxbijoux, $16


Minnie Czech Glass Beads by candysart, $12



Sparrow Bouquet Necklace by ERMOriginal, $18



Red Flower Cluster Choker by puffluna, $27


A sampling from etsy:


I don't know... the choker comes closest to my imaginary necklace, but I'm not ready to order it yet. Because, of course, as soon as I do, the exact necklace I am dreaming of will show up.
Let me know if you see it.

Cute stuff.

Maybe you buy up a couple of those necklaces that aren't quite right, and you Frankenstein them together until you create one that is.

Red flower cluster choker has it all: silver chain, dainty bead, delicate flower... you can't go wrong with that one, I think.

It's not just riz who hasn't explored etsy yet... me neither.

But I love all the pieces you pictured, hope you'll find "The One".

Have you used Alchemy before? Where you basically describe what you want, set a price and let the sellers bid on it? All jewelry requests get numerous bids from multiple sellers--and how cool is it to get a custom piece just for you?

the sparrow necklace is real cute, when did your love of jewelry start? i really like seeing all the trends and new styles in jewelry cause no many people post about jewelry, so you and WendyB are my only sources :)

I love the red and blue earrings. I'm always on Etsy, there are some very talented designers on there.
