Accessorize: Octopus Earring

July 12, 2012

Ooo, me like. Buy it from etsy seller martymagic for $50. See more of her ear cuffs below. UPDATE! Melissa just added that you can buy these wholesale for less than the cost of ONE! Buy here, 20 for $40. I don't know what you'd do with the other 19 though. Maybe sell them on etsy? Here are other ones.

Or you could just skip the Etsy reseller posing as a handmade crafter, and buy straight from China.

Someone should report that Etsy reseller - she's even using the same photo. On the other hand, AliBaba has a tendency to rip off other artists/designers as well, so maybe it's Karma.

@Eileen CoxI was so shocked when I saw that. I wonder if the photo used for the account is real? He/she talks about the wax casting process they supposedly use. It's so strange.

@Melissa@Eileen CoxHOnestly, upon further inspection I don't think the etsy seller is a reseller. I think she may be getting ripped off herself. I certainly wouldn't put it past Alibaba to rip off someone. They used one of my photos once to sell pettiskirts. Martymagic says she uses bronze to make hers and Alibaba says their's are silver colored and made of zinc alloy. At any rate, I'm keeping both links at the top, you can choose whom you want to purchase from. Martymagic's are a bit more expensive. If you want the look without the price you can choose to buy from Alibaba but I'm guessing that the Alibaba ones are not as detailed. At any rate, if anyone ever buys one of these let me know what the quality is like and I'll post about it.

She is getting ripped off. I have met her in person at the MD Renaissance Festival and have many pieces of her jewelry. I love her bats and have almost all of them. It is pricy but everything I have is solid sterling silver. The heavy stuff. This just makes me sad.

Wow, I've run into lots of resellers selling made in China stuff, but never the reverse - I didn't realize that happens (of course, it's logical that ripping off goes both ways)! How awful.
