Distlefunk2's Shop Announcement

Shop news: 10/1/13 As you can see the shop is pretty empty right now. I apologize to my customers, old and new, that have been waiting patiently for me to restock or list something new. I'm sorry to say that I won't be adding anything, anytime soon. My other shop ( gnarlyink.etsy.com ) has me busier than expected. With the sudden influx of orders and high demand for certain items, I am unable to return to Distlefunk for now, but rest assured, I will return after things have calmed down and smoothed out.

And just for fun :)

Distlefunk offers a unique line of jewelry and clay pendants, lovingly handcrafted by artist, Maggie Montgomery.

So what's with the name? What does "Distlefunk" mean?

Well, I'm glad you asked...

DistleFUNK is derived from the word DistleFINK, which is a stylized goldfinch that's originates from Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. Distlefinks represent happiness and good fortune and are most associated with the scandinavian culture. Even though these lovely little birds have been around for quite some time (mid 19th century), I'm happy to report that they've recently made a comeback in popularity and are considered to be quite trendy. Being that it's 2012 and my pendants are so heavily influenced by scandinavian folk art , I decided to bring this funky little bird up to date by adding a little FUNK to his name and thus my shop name was born. Welcome to Distlefunk. :)

Most items are made to order even if they are listed as being "in stock". Please allow 7-10 days for production. Custom work and wholesale are available.
