Feathered Friends Mementos/European Goodies Review

Today I received the most wonderful surprise! My good friend Johanna of European Goodies on Bonanzle send me a pair of the most exquisite feather earrings lovingly handcrafted by Heather of Feathered Friends Mementos on Etsy. Uniquely crafted of caged blue green feathers captured in silver wire metal. Such a creative, elegant design: a perfect juxtaposition of elements: light/heavy, air/metal, animal/earth, and freedom/caged. Heather's workmanship and ingenuity are refreshing and a beauty to look on. As a bonus, I received the matching necklace, on just the right length (so hard to get) of silver metal chain. Heather handcrafts an assortment of jewelry, original artwork, bookmarks and keychains, and fine art photographs. Some of her designs utilize feathers from her beloved caique parrot, Royal, like my earrings. Beautiful work, thank you, Heather. If you want divine, one of a kind, handcrafted, keepsake items, please check out Heather's shop on Etsy.

European Goodies is owned by Johanna a wonderful German lady who has lived in the United States for 12 years and is of Koziol family fame, her father invented the snow globe and was the Ivory Carver! European Goodies features unique vintage times including genuine pre-banned old ivory jewelry and what nots, and other quality vintage items along with her own custom designed website banners like the one on my site. For quality vintage, vintage pewter, custom banners, collectibles, and other nice things, drop by Johanna's Bonanzle Shop. Thank you, Johanna!

You 2 ladies made my week!
