Wednesday Window Shopping on Etsy!

This week's Wednesday Window Shopping excursion is taking its theme from the October Etsy Merchandising Desk once again! One of the trend forecasts for the month of October is:  Geometric and Tribal: Colorblock patterns and weaves, bold colors, stripes and shapes (chevron, triangle, and arrow), warrior references, intricate beading, and over the top collar necklaces. Back to basics with natural materials and references to feathers, leather, stone and clay.
So, I took a search of my Indie Junction friends for a sampling of these two categories.
Here is a sampling of some tribal designs

Tribal necklace with faux turquoise spears by Lynwood Jewels *****Extraordinary Artisan and founder of Handmade and Fabulous...take a peek!*****

A necklace from our Tribal range.  Made, using faux turquoise spears and sea jasper beads. This necklace is stunning and a statement piece. The faux turquoise has lovely markings and the colour of the markings is drawn out using the sea japser.
Each sea jasper bead is hand wrapped in a sterling silver cage. The turquoise spears are also wrapped using sterling silver. The necklace is finished with a leather necklet with sterling silver clasp and ends. A beautiful and striking necklace. Necklace length approx. 21 inches.

Tribal Instincts BOHO CHIC cuff bracelet turquoise and feathers  by SeptemberRose *****You'll wish you had more than two wrists!*****

Feathers and turquoise....two of this spring/summer's hottest trends, combined into one stunning and eye-catching cuff bracelet....Genuine white leather is accented on both sides by rows of beautiful, natural feather/fur trim. A row of antiqued brass studs in circles and diamond shapes runs down the center length of the cuff. The design if finished off by a small turquoise stone cabachon.  Dimensions: 3" x 6". A thin suede lace ties on, and allows this bracelet to be adjustable to just about wrist size. Great fit, will mold to your unique wrist, as you can tighten or loosen to be perfect for you. Silver charm beads on end of suede.
