Etsy Gone Wild Site of the Week

Sometimes artisans/crafters take themselves too seriously.  Well, not Gary, aka 8088Design.  Check him out at:

Recently there's been a lot of buzz on the Etsy forums because he started a very funny post:
8088Design's post starter

We all know that GREAT jewelry can take the breath away, but that would be an understatement for his awesome statement necklaces and headpieces.   I love the mixed media approach he takes to jewelry- a little of this a little of that, all from his ex's box of goodies in the garage.  He truly is a master.  And such a man of words!!!  The descriptions of his works evoke the loneliness and despair of his recent divorce and the endless whining of his son and model, Kevin (who, unfortunately we get to see a little too much of in this shot.)

  Oh well, art is not easy, is it? 

Check out his "other" shop too:
