more Etsy love...

I'm not sure what has gotten into me, but I think I have a massive Etsy problem. And a dainty silver jewelry problem. A few days after receiving my gorgeous "C" initial necklace, I ordered this sideways hamsa hand necklace I'd had my eye on. Again, super dainty and feminine. Right up my alley. 

This is my first hamsa/evil eye type of jewelry, aside from some beads and charms I ordered last year on Etsy that are still sitting, very sad and lonely, in my bead box. I'd been wanting a necklace like this for a while though, so once I'd found one that I liked I jumped on it :) I'm all about charms that are supposed to protect - I'll take any extra help I can get!

The seller is Maldemer (link!), based out of Belgium. I had a little chuckle when I saw this name, because "mal de mer" is "sea sickness" in French. Hah! 

I believe the owner Elisabeth is on vacation right now so no orders can be placed, but her shop indicates she'll be back July 1st! Shipping to Canada was the normal time (at least when Suzy sends me goodies!), about 1 week. The packaging of the piece is really cute too - I didn't get a good shot of it, but there's a little metal dragonfly decoration on the pink jewelry box. A really nice touch :) 

She has some really nice pieces, but this one was the real stand-out to me (and don't worry, it comes in gold too!). I also like how the length of the chain worked out - about an inch shorter than my initial necklace, so they can be worn together. Doubling up on the dainty!
