Unicorn Crafts GIVEAWAY ends 9/5

Unicorn Crafts has the cutest accessories!  They are so adorable and perfect for those of us who are still young at heart =)  I know you've been looking forward to this giveaway!  

Rainbow Necklace
My name is Faheema Chaudhury. I studied art at UC Berkeley and worked with and around artists for the past 4 and a half years. After the recent passing of my mother I moved back to LA and started making jewelry. What started as just a way to pass time, turned into a full-blown business.

I make jewelry and accessories for the kid and the kid at heart. I give the 70s shrinky dink a modern spin; designing the pieces in photoshop and illustrator. The designs are then printed onto (or in some cases drawn onto) the special paper, meticulously cut and then baked. After coming out the oven, they take their form as earrings, necklaces, pins and barrettes. 
When I look at something and I want to explode because of how cute it is, that's what inspires me. That feeling that comes over you and makes you feel like a kid. A motto of mine is "If you look at my work and don't get a cavity from how cute it is, I didn't do my job."

Tiny Lady Toast Earrings

The Tiny White Elephants are one of my favorite items in my shop. I was using a new technique with this little guy and it worked out better than I expected. He's just the right size too. It's one of those designs that just go with every look.
