NEW YORK -- The popular online craft seller Etsy will create a line of original products for the American Museum of Natural History.

The items, inspired by the museum's collection, will be sold at the museum's gift shop and online.

The museum announced the collaboration on Thursday.

It says the Etsy shop in the museum store will feature a selection of more than 140 objects.

They include a sterling silver blue whale pendant based on the museum's iconic Hall of Ocean Life display.

The museum says it's the first time that Etsy has collaborated with a museum in the creation of original products.
