Etsy, gathering place for crafty geeks worldwide.

So, I've spent some time on Etsy today, since I've been thinking about starting an Etsy shop. Here are some awesome handmade products I came across that I would absolutely love.

Here's a crocheted labrat. This artist also has frogs. We do a lot of rat dissection here, and I thought this was awesome.

In college, I did my final paper on Pi, and consequently became obsessed. I just thought this pi necklace was adorable.

As the Princess of Reproductive Medicine, who has, as of late, done a TON of pencil studies of the human testis for an upcoming anatomy book, I've become extremely well versed on the anatomy of the testicle. This gentleman's Etsy offering is a polymer clay ball in a jar. While it's really cool looking, it doesn't look all that accurate to me. I still want it, though. It would look badass on my desk, and also would kinda freak my patients out.

Besides being the Princess of Reproductive Medicine, I'm also the Princess of Math (yes I can be princess of more than one thing, thank you very much). This is a Fibonacci spiral (or golden ratio) bracelet. It's pretty. Also expensive. If I really decide I want it, I'll probably just end up making my own.

And finally, if and when I finally pop out a kid, she'll of course need to be a math geek as well. One of my favorite numbers (besides 52) is i, which is the square root of negative 1. Here's an i bib. Cute, no?

And there you have my favorite things on Etsy today.
