Featured Seller: ykonna

[note: I started this post a month ago... and then didn't finish it :x until now! In honor of this seller, I shall say it is because Papa YG distracted me with all the comebacks happening ^^]

[note 2: I really need to learn to use the Preview button instead of editing and then publishing over and over again -_- And sorry this one is so long ><]

Okay, so this girl deserves more sales. How did I find her? On a whim, I decided to do a search on Etsy for some kpop artists I'm into, because hey, you never know, right? Surprisingly, I found about 5 results for one group, and maybe 4 for another. All from two or three sellers. Including ykonna (or G)!

Needless to say, I was pretty excited. Upon clicking on one of the necklaces, I decided to browse ykonna's shop and found like 8 more kpop-related pieces. So of course I had my eye on a few of them, and wound up messaging her about how excited I was to have found an Etsy seller who was into the kpop scene (yeah I can be a dork like that). Sadly, a couple of the necklaces I wanted sold before I could buy them, but I still got a super cute Super Junior one! Along with a Kirby necklace set and a pair of earrings.

Here's where I wish (again) that I had working camera here in the middle of nowhere with me, but it's way back in California. And old. But functional! So maybe one of these days... Point is, I wish I could show you pics of G's packaging. Totally gift-ready, totally compact, AND comes with some candies, business card/note, and some of those kawaii little Japanese die-cut stickers!

Each item comes wrapped in a colored tissue cloth thing (I don't know the technical name for it, sorry ><), which is then placed in a little gauzy gift pouch printed with foil patterns. Sooo cute! And I can tell you right now that she wraps them up really neatly, I couldn't even replicate it after opening mine ._. If it's a set, like two necklaces, each is individually wrapped in the tissue cloth thing, then both are placed in the same pouch. Earrings are wrapped in a single piece, but are placed such that they won't get tangled or damage each other :) I also got another little extra, a matching SuJu phone/bag charm!

G ships from Greece, and it's all registered (just under $7 no matter how much jewelry you buy), so you can be sure it'll arrive safely and in 1-2 weeks, unless your post office is a butt like mine is. (But my order still arrived in a week!) She also sells OOAK cyberlox hair falls, which are pretty cute, but I don't wear falls so I can't tell you how they are... As for her jewelry, it's not just colored chains and some beads hanging from them--which I also love!--but she'll literally put those metal joiners between beads to make a necklace or any attachments. You can definitely tell G puts a lot of work into it.

You can also find a lot of unique charms in her shop, a lot of them are Japan- or Korea-imported, like rare anime or Hello Kitty charms. (And hello, she had Kirby!!!) From single- and multi-layer chokers to dangly earrings, statement necklaces to chunky bracelets, and a ton of things in between, EVERYTHING is OOAK. Errrrrrthing! She also takes custom orders and will shorten or lengthen necklaces if you so desire.

We still talk to each other about kpop too! Spazzing out about all the new releases, it's good times. She's a total sweetheart, and her shop is so cute to browse through, and she makes quality stuff! But I've had my eye on this scissors necklace ever since she listed it (it's in my fave colors! :D and it's scissors :]) aaand on the steampunk princess set, not to mention I'm still considering this classy Hello Kitty set (I'm so bad T_T), so hopefully no one buys them while I try to figure out if my PO will be stupid about my registered post again >.> Boy I abuse emoticons. Sorry!

Anyway, on to some of my current favorites in her shop!
[Ball chain necklaces] Super Mario Bullet Bill stress toy necklace
[Rings] Hello Kitty, always a no-brainer (hahaaa I'm such an Asian girl xD)
[Bracelets] BIGBANG (love! but teeny wrist QQ); white chunky bracelet
[Phone/Bag Charms] a different Hello Kitty; rainbow Cinnamoroll
[Hair Falls] metallic black/blue; I'm such a sucker for teal and purple...
[Necklaces] b/w One Piece; feminine statement necklace; cute 2PM choker

She also had some Sailor Moon long necklaces up but they all sold (not surprising). Sailor Scouts were Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus--besides Meatball Head herself, I've always loved Mercury :3 though a lot of my friends were partial to Mars and Jupiter... Anyway, you should check her out! :]

[Embedding a song also for her xP GD&TOP! But it's seriously a nice groove. More hip hop, and not your typical kpop]
