Weekly BEST: Inkstrand


Inkstrand is an Etsy shop run by a crafter named Jamila from Portland, Oregon.  A self-described dreamer and jack of all trades, Jamila specializes in pendants, purses, and accessories in this Etsy shop.  Inkstrand takes you back to the Victorian era, meshing aesthetics from that era with elements of nature, science fiction, and fantasy.  Inkstrand is also eco-friendly - Jamila uses a mix of new, recycled, and repurposed materials in her work.  Here are some of my favorites from her shop:
