Etsy Heroes no.1


























This is the first of a series of posts where I'll be showing off some of my absolute etsy favourites - people who's everything I admire: photos; products; overall 'look'. My first Featuree is Alyssa Zygmunt of Brooklyn Rehab - "Fashion designer by day, collector and crafter by night."























I love that she does such a wide range of stuff - jewellery, ceramics, homewares of many skills, all with a wicked streak of imagination and sort of cheeky whimsy. There's a bit of a nature/wildlife vibe going on (at least among my favourites!) in a really nice vintage kitschy way. Plus, the photos are just styled deliciously.













Her blog is well worth a read for lovely images, pretty stuff and interesting writing.
Well done, Alyssa! You are my first official Etsy Hero
(no certificates or anything, but perhaps a superman-stylee cape?
I'll think about it)
