Double-sided Dogtag Necklaces by Jasmine Becket-Griffith

Etsy comes through with yet another take on unique, affordable jewelry that will be especially popular with 'tweens and teens, or women who like things funky and fanciful. These two-sided dogtag necklaces are by artist Jasmine Becket-Griffith, whose work I've long admired on ebay and in the Hot Topic stores. She specializes in big-eyed fairies and other creatures, with a style that's instantly recognizable, and new takes on familiar characters from The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, and other tales -- and even figures from history, such as Queen Elizabeth and Marie Antoinette!

Every time I look I seem to find a new favorite. Today, though, I think it would have to be the Kali and Hindu Fairy dogtag you see pictured here. Or maybe the Wizard of Oz set with Dorothy and Toto on one side, and Dorothy with female versions of the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion on the other.

Don't forget to check the rest of her Etsy shop (called Strangeling), where she also sells art cameo pendants and fine art prints.
