The Beaded Iris - New Shop Find

I've discovered a new shop over at Etsy called The Beaded Iris.  
The shop owner, Kelsey, is a local artist.

Here are a few of the unique and very cool things I found in her shop.

Totally Twisted Wire Earrings-- Red, Orange, and Shell Pink
This first one made me laugh out loud and
 it's reassuring to know that there are earrings
 in the world that describe me. :)

Peace Tea Floral Necklace -- Soda Poppies UpCycled Aluminium Flowers

This necklace caught my eye because I'm a tea lover.  I love the way this
seller presents her product.  Always in search of unique gifts for
friends and family, I can see quite a few here that would fit the bill.
Also, for me the package is almost as important as
 what's inside and this one is ready to go as a gift or
 as a special something for yourself.

Here is what Kelsey says about this necklace - 

Peace Tea cans are easily one of my favorite brands to work with...
so many different color options and striking patterns. 
This little flower makes abundant use of another feature common on Peace Tea cans--faces! How many can you find?

Each Soda Poppy is a truly unique flower, hand-cut from a used beverage can and formed and assembled in my home studio. Petals are hand-sanded  to remove sharp edges; the flower is firmly affixed to a chrome-plated pendant component, and comes strung on 16" steel ball chain.

As with every item in my shop, this little beauty ships wrapped 
in tissue paper and an organza bag, ready to be gifted!
