Chili Pepper
Lemon Curry

Cashmere Rose
Purple Wine
Green Moss

These are some of my BRAND NEW items that will be offered for sale this weekend in New York during the PDX Etsy trunk show, Brooklyn Indie Market, and Etsy Labs Halloween Party.

My idea was to offer a matching set. I think it makes for a really cute display and also adds value to the product. So now when you purchase one of my painted Roman Record Cuffs, you will also have the option to get a matching mirrored jewerly tray made from an upcycled 45 rpm record! I sculpted the edges of some of the records to make lovely little flower-like forms, and left some of them flat as well.

I hope to make some more and get them listed in my shop soon. In the meantime, I would love to hear your feedback on this idea! The cuffs are regularly $24 and my Feng Shui Mirrors (usually designed to hang on the wall) go for $18. I am offering the matching set for $40. Let me know what you think! Would you buy the whole set, or just the cuff, or just the mirror?

I would also like to thank analiese for sharing the Pantone Fall Color Chart in the Etsy forums. I totally used it to mix up these colors and I am quite happy with how they turned out. The captions I used above are actually the names of these "hot" fall Pantone colors.

Wow, pretty awesome upcycling! My favourite is the pink one - and I think as a set works really well!

I really like these- what a cute idea! It does add value and makes a cute gift set, I think!

I love these. Especially the pink one and the stargazer. I would definitely buy them as a set!

Cool! (especially after I figured out that they are *not* chip n dip sets). Great deal too, a much bigger gift, for not that much more money.

I adore these. The only problem is that I can't decide which I like best. These would make a great gift and for $40 for both - the price is great.
Good luck with the trunk show.

Amazing, now do you know what you should do? Browse my site at and find a nice poem to go along with it, or, send me an email and I'll write one.
