We Blackbird girls love our home at Etsy, and we really embrace that culture of handmade/vintage over mass production. I can also tell you that when in comes to buying for myself -- I am pretty picky. I fall in love easily, but it has to be TRUE LOVE before I buy it. I love all the tribal things I've seen, but when I purchase it, then that's a good sign.
I found this designer, Layla Amber Handmade Creations, from England on Etsy, and I HAD TO HAVE her wooden feather necklace. What does it have? A fresh take on a tribal pattern... Here's a similar brooch from her shop:
So I started looking. Lo and behold, it's happening everywhere for spring!! Natural leaf bracelets with playful spins on tribal prints:
