Octopus Stew – Review

Before DragonCon, I ordered from Octopus Stew because I fell in love with a pretty one of a kind Octopus, Seraphina. I’d been looking at the lovely octopus earrings for months but knew I wouldn’t wear the studs, so held off until I saw something I would wear. I kept an eye on the store, and more recently I saw adorable heart and bone hair clips, which  I finally snagged, too.



The lovely Seraphina.


The adorable little heart and bones.

Site:
This is a typical etsy store, so very easy to navigate.

Pricing:
$15.00 for Seraphina ($3 shipping)
$6.00 for the heart and crossbones ($1 shipping)
$12 for customized octopus earrings
$12.50 for customized demon horns
$15 for custom kawaii mermaids
$22 to $37 for custom headbands with octopuses or roses on them (depending on the design)

Shipping:
Shipping for my items was insanely cheap. I mean seriously, I hadn’t expected it to be so little.

The items shipped quickly and were well cushioned.

I really adore shops that do all kinds of customized items such as this one and they make me a repeat customer!

The attention to detail on each octopus (or other lovely crafted item), the layering to get the colors just right, the durability and just how cute they are really make them awesome.

Customer Service:
The owner Andromeda has responded to my every question promptly and and been easy to work with.

Would I purchase from Octopus Stew again?
Absolutely yes! I really love the cute items that she makes! I wish I was half as skilled with polymer clay! I think if you’re looking for an unusual, cute gift, any item from Octopus Stew would be great for the holiday season.

      I’m in love with that octopus! It’s not something I’d wear, but I’d probably stare at it every day :D lol!

      • Phyrra

        That’s why I really like the hair clip, because it’s adorable but not heavy!

      I noticed there’s glitter on these guys: does it come off, or is it really well attached?

      • Phyrra

        The ones i have, haven’t come off on me.

      I just wanted to say thank you for posting this link! I loved your hair clips so much that I had to hop over to her site and see what else she had to offer. And everything was sooo cute!!! To make a long story short, I ended up ordering the Alice in wonderland earring for my with as our 9th wedding anniversary gift. I know she’ll love them. Thanks again for the wonderful post. <3
