Featured Etsy Artists: 'Undiscovered' Treasures

Introducing some 'undiscovered' Australian Artists on Etsy (yet to hit the 15 sales mark)


Pink Lizzy Sews for Oliver S Birthday Party Dress

Based in Brisbane, PinkLizzyFromAus is a family-run 'delicious collective'. If I had a little girl I think she'd be wearing a different PinkLizzy dress every day. Fortunately for those of us without little people to dress up, there is also a pretty LollyShop jewellery range and special adult versions of the cute PinkLizzy art skirts!

To learn more about PinkLizzy and the delicious collective, visit:


Forget Me Not Artcard by PaperByForgetMeNot

I discovered this lovely store PaperByForgetMeNot through twitter. Here you can find a lovely range of handcrafted cards, notelets, notepads and other stationery, all created using environmentally conscious materials. There's a nice balance between pretty and stylish, and a large range to choose from.

Pale Blue Hollow Earrings by CreativeArtyFacts

Creativeartyfacts is a beautiful store selling handcrafted glass beads and earrings.
From the artist's shop announcement: 'All my beads are hand made by me in my studio in Brisbane, Australia! I use a variety of glass to give my beads a unique look. Lauscha, Czech,Italian Effetre and hand pulled Caliente are some of my favourites.'

Definitely worth an admiring visit, and don't miss the cupcake beads!

Felt Cloud Necklace/Pendant- Blue Summer Skies by RedSuedeKitten

In the words of Ms RedSuedeKitten herself: 'red suede kitten's current range includes Felt Cloud brooches and pendants, Felt Cocoon necklaces, Buckle Bug Brooches, and special one-off necklaces and bracelets. Every red suede kitten item is one-of-a-kind. red suede kitten jewellery is organic, colourful and playful.'
RedSuedeKitten creations are truly unique and sure to attract lots of jealous comments!
You can even find a custom made cocoon necklace with a mysterious little inhabitant...


Waldorf Inspired Boy Doll by TheHandMaden

There are some wonderful surprises in TheHandMaden's store. I think some of the dolls have better fashion sense than I do, such as this doll, an original design with alpaca and merino hair, ribbons and a headband, a cute party dress, handknitted pure baby leggings and a little pet butterfly wristlet! Custom dolls are also available, and would make a perfect gift.

Lovely Blue Cups and Saucers Set - 'Celeste'

An 'undiscovered' vintage collection run by two mums from Inverell and Lightning Ridge. Lots of wonderful clothing and homewares to browse through, with a 20% discount for Aussie buyers! The pair have a special promotion on at the moment '17 aprons in 17 days' where you can win a beautiful vintage apron! Hurry though- the promotion ends tomorrow (June 4 Au time).
