As most of you already know, Funky Lollipop opens it’s metaphorical Etsy doors TOMORROW!!! Happy Independence Day to us! (www.etsy.com/shop/FunkyLollipop) So to prepare for this momentous occasion, we decided today’s post will be all about some of the exciting products that you will find in our little shop! These three are recently finished, and they are definitely some of my favs! I honestly believe that the hardest part of this business will be letting go of my work, hahaha! I would wear every piece I have ever made!

The first pair I wish to discuss is the TigerChainz!

I LOVE animal prints! I always have. However, the real inspiration for the tiger print is my home life, hahaha!  In case you are unaware, my brother’s name is Tony, and, of course, his favorite animal is the tiger…Tony the Tiger! (Mmmm Frosted Flakes!) This past Halloween, Tony and his girlfriend tried really hard to come up with a cute couples costume. Personally, I think they did amazingly well! Can you guess? My brother went as a tiger, and his girlfriend, the Tiger Tamer (think circus, or Siegfried and Roy). From then on, “tiger” or “tiger tamer” has been a frequently used term. It was then that I realized that I had never even attempted tiger print! I got right on it. Although I am not as impressed with my tiger as I am with my zebra, I still think that it is pretty darn pretty! And these are my favorite so far!

These are post earrings, not hooks. I decorated both the literal post, and the backing of the earring. This creates the illusion that you are wearing more than one pair! These earrings are fairly lightweight, and would definitely be a unique and wild addition to any look!

The Spunky Punx

These are my absolute favorite! They are post earrings as well, but the super special thing about them are that they are asymmetrical! Both earrings have three skulls and two spikes, but the placement of the pieces and the color of the skulls are different, and one earring is just a touch longer than the other. Some black chains and some silver chains also give it a little more flair as well. One has more chain on the front, while the other is heavy in the back. Spunky fun with a punk-y flair!! I randomly found these pink and black skulls, and I had to have them, use them, and love them! They are so intricately detailed right down to their little teeth! Also, like the last pair, both the front and the back are decorated–meaning that there are four individual pieces! These little gems certainly make my outfits look better!!

Where did the skull obsession come from?

Elvira! Of course!

The FunStix

Oooh! I love these little polka dotted quirky earrings! Green with pink polka dots, purple with aqua, and yellow with orange polka dots. The sticks go from smallest to largest and so do the chains. These are hooks, and they dangle pretty far down, but not far enough to touch your collarbone (unlike quite a few of my earrings, hahaha!). The sticks are wood, so it makes these earrings surprisingly light! They are a little “I Love The 80’s” hahahaha! These earrings are so fun and flirty, and would brighten any drab day!!

See you Soon!!!

Eye Love It!!!

The “eyes are the window to the soul”….there is some debate about who actually said it first, but this line has been tossed around for centuries. As Eye am sure you already know, or can guess at this point, Eye am the Funky in the Funky Lollipop brand–and this is why, hahahaha! As most of you have seen with my makeup, really the only feature Eye do anything with, are my eyeballs! Eye don’t wear foundation (although Eye should), Eye don’t wear blush or lipstick (although Eye should), so all Eye do is work hard to make my eyeballs pop! Eye am obsessed with the eyes! Eye have had eyeball jewelry since sixth grade, when Eye got a necklace at Casa Bonita. Eye have had necklaces and rings…but never earrings. Is it unseemly to wear fake eyeballs so near to your regular eyeballs? Eye don’t know, and obviously don’t care, hahaha, because Eye made these puppies!!

Eye like my jewelry to make a statement, and Eye find these to be really eye-catching!! Eye randomly found these little do-dads while Lollipop and Eye were at Hobby Lobby–instantly fell in love! However, they are not the easiest ‘bead’ to work with!   Flat on the back, with two little holes at each corner. How in the world do Eye attach this to an earring hook? Well, lucky for me, Eye am also obsessed with chains! 8 lengths of chain and 14 jump rings later, these eye-popping beauties were born!! They are also available with silver chain, instead of black. And Eye hope to come up with another design soon, as well. As much as Eye possibly can, Eye will have eyeballs in my pieces!!
