The DTeam welcomes a new member from Canada, MK Girl, whose shop contains lovely hand-crocheted and knitted accessories for winter, including snow boots, snuggly hats, and other functional and attractive items for children and adults. However, you will also come across unique spring finds in this shop. As the warmer weather ahead beckons, so do the handmade treasures from this Etsy shop.

Below are a few we find especially appealing, from a flower headband to a woolly lamb hat (who can resist that face? It’s the Chinese Year of the Sheep, after all!) We encourage you to browse MollyandBuggs for more adorable creations.

Tuesday Treasure: Octopus Necklace in Chainmaille

By M Kimball, ElephantBeads

Chainmaille jewelry is time consuming to create, and can be spectacular in design. Styles range from folk to bohemian to gothic, and are only limited by the imagination of the chainmaille artist. The chainmaille jewelry and ornaments at DoBatsEatCats on Etsy are out-of-the-box creative finds. The Octopus necklace below is a particularly awesome treasure, but we’ve included a few other items from this shop – including some non-chainmaille earrings – to whet your appetite:
