Just another Etsy Monday....

This week's featured Etsy shop is The Accidental Artist. I found Mousumi's shop via the pounce feature back in October, when her shop first opened. I have been impressed with her work ever since!

Mousumi takes everyday household items, such as wine bottles, and transforms them to a beautiful piece of art.

How great would this look on your table for the holidays?!

Besides making decanters, she also tranforms jewelry. We all know how much I love jewelry!

These need to find a home in my jewelry collection, stat! They are embellished with Swavorski crystals and hand painted by Mousumi herself.

This bracelet is goregous! Look at all the detailing, wow! This piece will definitely make a statement.

Mousumi was kind enough to answer some questions, enjoy!

1. How did you get started painting jewelry?

I must profess I am a craft store junkie, and would often visit a store and buy something to try it out. I started out by painting on ceramics mostly, and from that I ventured into canvas. It wasn't until recently that I painted my first wood bangle as a gift for my mom. It was such a hit that I felt encouraged to come up with more styles.

2. What is your favorite color to paint with?

This truly changes based on my mood, but I do enjoy hues such as blue, topaz, purple. My favorite accent to use is typically gold for a little "bling" effect.

3. What kind of paint do you use?

I paint with Acrylic.

4. Do you take custom orders?

I do take custom orders. From requests of colors and designs to the size of the bangles.

5. Do you plan on expanding your shop to items other than just jewelry?

I am slowly starting to do just that. I recently added Christmas Ornaments, and this weekend I have a case of wine bottles to paint. The wine bottles make great hostess gifts, or a good showpiece to any bar.

Mousumi is also offering a 15% discount! The coupon code is HOLIDAY15.

Thanks so much Mousumi!
