Crafty crush

One of the topics on the current EtsyBloggers Blog Carnival is to share with everyone an item from someone else's shop you love so much that you wish you'd thought of it first. I run across stuff on Etsy all the time I wish I could make, so I'm going to share with you all three things on my "Wish I'd Done That!" list. Since I make jewelry, I've decided to confine the list to that category. First is this wonderful Layered Keepsake Necklace from my friend GemsByEm:

This is such a great wedding or anniversary gift! I love how delicate and classic everything looks with the small silver discs and the old-style typeface. Next up is my friend Hollyrocks' way-too-awesome Rainbow bubbles pendant:

I don't even work with polymer clay, but this piece always makes me wish I did. It's so simple yet totally stunning. Someday, this will be mine! And finally, there is the whimsical, elegant work of LieblingDesigns. Her Bonita Necklace in particular caught my eye recently:

I love that the design is simple but still gorgeous and totally unique.
So now you know a few of my crafty crushes. Who are some of yours?

How sweet of you to include me in your list of jewelry crushes!! I'm so flattered, I'm probably even blushing.

I really love the layered keepsake from Gemsbyem too, it is indeed an very creative idea. Her lucky penny design is probably my favorite though, someday I'd like to have her make me a lucky penny necklace using a penny from my birth year- because those are even luckier!

I have a craft crush on most jewelry...I'm a knitter, so I love looking at things that I don't have the talent for.
