New Etsy Buy - A Bangle with Brains

Einstein Recycled Magazine Bangle by StringsnTings, www.StringsnTings.etsy.com

I was browsing a treasury recently when this decoupaged bangle by EtsyNJ artist StringsnTings jumped out at me. Now, I'm always on the lookout for accessories that are colorful, distinctive, and offbeat. And I'm a sucker for a good bangle. You know that. So, I was drawn to this artsy piece sporting what I thought to be a floral print. Only, I was wrong. After reading StringnTings's item listing, I discovered that she used one of those colorized pop art print-outs of Albert Einstein. Armed with the knowledge that the bangle was even quirkier than I'd first surmised, I knew that a purchase was imminent (even if I did dis Einstein for leaving his wife for his cousin in an erstwhile post).
The decoupage job on this bracelet is excellent. Moreover, the photo of the bangle with the book and roses makes for an eye-catching listing. I should mention that StringsnTings also offers lovely hand-painted earrings, which I would certainly purchase for myself if I weren't such a wuss and had pierced ears. Hmm. Perhaps they'd make nice presents this holiday season. All in all, well done, StringsnTings.
