I am an Etsy Stalker and proud of it.

Therefore, I thought it would be a fitting thing to do a recurring series spotlighting local, Seattle-area Etsy shop owners! Gotta stimulate that local economy, you know…

So, without further adieu, I give you Strung Out Designs

This is Rockstar elegance at it’s finest. Simple lines and lovely feminine shapes – but totally unique!

Tell me these aren’t just gorgeous. The grace and elegance of this work is just astounding!

And they’re all so fabulously priced! $18-$20 for a pair of one-of-a-kind gorgeous earrings? Sold!
