THIS JUST IN: Seems the Etsy Admin protest bead we linked earlier (seen to the left) that was up for auction has been won by "robkali" - anyone wish to venture a guess as to who that is? With 59 feedback something tells me it's none other than the Etsy CEO himself as I can't see anyone would playing a duplicitous game that long just to buy this.
I've heard some incredible reports of people sending work to Etsy and it coming back vandalized and destroyed. I dearly hope it's not the case with this because this fellow deserves a place of honor not under some wanker's boot.
If you didn't take the link over to read the description or see the pictures before, do it now, it's a fucking work of genius. It also might be the last time he's seen in one piece. It was made by one of the screwed over beadmakers whose work was being claimed by the now deleted seller with the Etsy-deleted sold pages.
If it was me I would refuse the sale and refund his money and tell him to sod off. But that's me. I'm a total bitch as if you didn't you know.
