Today, we are thrilled to share a unique shop specializing in original handmade accessories. You may hear this often but these accessories are REALLY one of a kind. The Birdie num num Etsy shop was created in 2011; however, this fabulous Chilean brand of accessories was born in late 2009 by owner Tatiana "Tati" Cuneo. At Birdie num num, one can find many colorful adornments and structured neck warmers designed to set trends. Below are just a few examples of Tati's extraordinary and extravagant pieces.
The name Birdie num num derived from Tati’s favorite scene in The Party, a Peter Sellers film. She was inspired to open her shop when her atelier was filled with many different accessories and excitedly mentions, “it was like an experiment, but when my first sale came in I was so excited and I felt so responsible that I new I should take it seriously and that is what I have being doing since then, I love every part of the process…I love the variety, originality and quality of my creations. At first I was so scared, but feedback has been crucial to keep on going.”
It's always so difficult as a small shop owner to take something and run with it. Because Tati's accessories are so uncommon, we are honored to share her shop today. She states that she is always seeking to explore new forms of dressing complements based on the continuous study of the fabric possibilities and it shows through her work. On top of it all, Tati is also an architect with a true passion for photography. There’s an interesting link between her photography and fashion accessories. At Etsynch, we highly admire her work and think she is a scientist with style!

Wedding bells are all around and tradition calls for formally inviting a flower girl to attend. Kona Mali Creations is an Etsy girls boutique carrying a mix of fabulous flower girl dresses and accessories, along with theatre tutu's for that darling dancer. Each piece is carefully handmade by Donna Bollmann of New York. Kona Mali is a Hawaiian translation of Bollmann's very own name and she is quite a visionary. Bollmann opened her shop in September 2013 and ever since has built a large audience and customer base. Her little girl dresses are clearly classy and appear to be directly out of the Great Gatsby or The Unfinished Dance.
