Featured Item of the Day

Smile Pendant
Wear this sweet smile necklace and you'll be surprised at how many people smile back!

Rachel O's lightweight pendants are perfect for every day wear. Every fabric button is handmade, with love, by Rachel O.

Pendant measures approx ONE INCH wide and is set in an antique bronze tone setting. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. I offer antique bronze finish chains with standard lobster clasps. Please select the length of chain you would like to receive. You can choose from 16 or 18 inches. Model is shown wearing an 18 inch chain. Convo me if you need something longer. You can also order the pendant only; NO CHAIN.

Photos of solid white buttons are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and model are NOT included.

You will receive one pendant as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your necklace, it will vary ever so slightly from the one in the photo, but will be equally awesome. I do my best to take accurate photos, but color can look different on different screens. If you have any questions, please ask before ordering.

Pendants look their best when cared for properly. Please avoid getting them wet (remove before shower/swim), put on after applying perfume, and you will be able to enjoy them for a long time.

If you would like to include a gift message, please leave it under notes to seller at checkout. I will hand write your message on a note card.

Thanks!

THANK YOU to everyone who came to Handmade Omaha this weekend! I had a great time, even though I totally lost my voice. You were all so kind when I was trying to communicate by pointing. It was kind of a bummer because I look forward to getting to chat with customers in person. 

Featured Item of the Day

Boy Nerd Jackalope
Rachel O's Jackalopes are each a unique work of art. I crochet each one without a pattern so every sweet bunny face is different and has their own personality.

This jackalope has been stuffed and mounted to a wood plaque measuring approx 5x7 inches. There is a hole drilled in the back, so you can hang it with a single nail (not included).

Antlers are hand sculpted from polymer clay.

Accessories and ear insides have been firmly attached with glue, but this is an art object, not a toy.

Like all nerds, this jackalope may need assistance in adjusting their glasses upon arrival. Glasses are attached with wire from the back and are free floating resting on the nose. I'm not sure, but it may shift during shipping. All it's going to need is a little wiggle. Don't worry about fingerprints on the lenses- the jackalope doesn't realize that their glasses don't have any lenses.

Ruler is in inches and is not included with purchase.

Colors can appear differently on different monitors. I have done my best to represent the piece accurately. If you have any questions, I encourage you to ask before purchase.

Handmade Omaha

It's almost here! I'm at the Handmade Omaha Show this weekend! Come see me and Omaha's best makers at 10th and Bancroft!

Featured Item of the Day

Octogirl Pin
Octopus wigs are in this year.

Pin measures just under 1 1/4 inches across at widest point.

Rachel O’s wood pins start out as little sketches of my crazy ideas. I digitize each drawing, then cut and etch onto wood via my laser. Then the fun begins! I paint each pin by hand. This means that every pin is just a little bit different, but equally awesome! I love how the wood grain is unique to each piece.

Pins each have a one inch bar pin on the back.

I don’t take custom orders, but I do take requests. If you have a pin idea, let me know! If it’s something I can draw, I might just release it as a pin.

Please do not get wood pins wet.

Ruler is in INCHES and is not included- it is for size reference ONLY.

Sloths

I couldn't resist adding just one more pin design in time for the Handmade Omaha show this weekend! Of course, it had to be sloths. What's cuter than a cuddly little sloth? I'll have a handful of these for sale at the show, then they will be available on my etsy shortly after.
