Pheasant's Tail


Artist Statement: This is the endgame for bird loving cats indignified with an indoor existence. Ferocious Husky Pheasant is a massive 26" long and based around an actual whole pheasant tail! The size of this creature may intimidate smaller cats so be warned, only the most daring of kitties will attempt an aerial take down of this leviathan. The Ferocious Pheasant has a spinner and can be attached to a wand for flying action. It is not designed to spin but will float gracefully in circles around your head. It also works as an excellent hand held feather wand for lazy cats. The super long feathers wiggle and twitch with a flick of the wrist. Don't deny your kitties the pleasure they require and acquire Ferocious Husky Pheasant today.

Uberfrau



Love the idea, but the execution could be a little better, no? Would love to see a conceptualisation of an 'uberfrau' in a cartoon line drawing. Uberfrau would have to be a feminist icon, of course. What would her gifts be? Special talents? Accessories?

Feel free to leave ideas in the comments!

Black Forest Hunting Amulets



Artist Statement: You are looking at two antique (circa 1875) Black Forest Hunting Amulets...a little Cherub Angel and a quartz crystal. These were worn to adorn a traditional folk costume and thought to bring good luck and protection from danger while hunting. There are no markings but it appears to be silver (it's very solid) and should polish up nicely. These pieces are highly coveted amongst collectors!

Many fairy tales originated in the valleys and wooded heights of the Black Forest. Perhaps the most famous collection of folktales in our lives, was that of the Brothers Grimm. It is not a coincidence that early 20th century explorations of the unconscious were undertaken in the vicinity of the enchanted, ancient Black Forest.

Artist Statement: A delicate flourish and gears are printed high upon the necktie so that it'll peek through a jacket or vest. Shown: dove gray ink on black and navy blue. (Original illustration/collaboration for Alan and Siouxie's wedding.)

100% silk tie, standard length and width: approx 58" long and 3.75" wide.

Going Down the Twirly Slide


Going Down the Twirly Slide by Ms Belle


Artist Statement: These earrings are just plain fun with a completely carefree apprearance and style. They remind me of the slide my son always likes to go down when we visit the park--the big tall twirly slide!

I hand forged and hammered sterling silver wire to create these whimsical earrings. To wear them, insert the spiral end through your piercing, either through the front or back side, and turn them until they reach the top bend which then rests in the ear. (I can create these in a smaller gauge wire if you have smaller piercings. They can also be created in goldfill if you prefer.)

The total length is approximately 1 15/16 to 2 inches (around 50mm). They are roughly 1/2 inch (13mm) wide. Each of these measurements may vary slightly. As with all handmade items, expect some slight variation from piece to piece and pair to pair.

If you prefer these in goldfill, just put a message in the 'note to seller' during checkout and I will create these for you in goldfill. Please allow 24 hours for creation of your handmade twirly slide earrings!

Chandalier Wrap Earrings




Artist Statement: These eye-catching chandelier earrings are made with beautiful Israeli cut rhodolite garnets, deep yellow Israeli cut citrine and smooth peridot briolettes. The silver has been oxidized for an antique finish.
The earrings are almost 2" (5.08cm) long from the top of the earwire. The circle of the chandelier is 3/4" (1.91cm) wide from one side to the other. All silver is sterling.

Amber Resin Ring



Artist Statement: Beautiful ring made of high quality clear and black resin. Pieces of baltic ambers are embedded in it. This ring is size EU-15, UK-O, US-7

My resin rings are hand made by myself from the very beginning when the project forms to the very end when I polish each ingredient separately.All this long process makes each of my work very unique and personal. Most of the rings have some decorative elements embedded inside, however some versions come in one, clear colour. These rings are very unique - they come in either one exceptional piece, or in the limited series of few. Because each ring is individually made by hand, there are no two exactly same pieces! One can be sure they would have a truly unique piece on their finger!

Mindful Cup


Artist Statement: Stressed out?
Life going by too fast for you?

Practice some mindfulness with this beautiful cup and saucer set designed especially to help you stay present in the moment.

Just fill with your favorite beverage and sit back and enjoy the moment. If the mind starts to wander and/or you're tempted to multi-task you'll unknowingly try to put the cup down on any given surface. Since the cup can only be put down in its saucer the pointed bottom will instantly jolt you back into the moment and make you mindful of what you were originally doing = enjoying the moment.

Worried that there's no handle? Not a problem. When filled with a hot beverage wait until the cup is at a comfortable temperature to pick up - this then indicates that the tea or coffee is at the perfect temperature to drink!

When not in use, turn cup upside-down and it becomes a fabulous, decorative object.

Size: 5 1/2 x 5 x 5"
Holds 12 oz.

Hand-wash please.

THIS PARTICULAR DESIGN: Words are from a poem by the mystic, Sufi poet, Rumi. It goes something like this...

"The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
Not knowing how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along."

Dragon Claw


Artist Statement: I love this piece! It‘s full of life, intensity, war and natural textures. With the claw it’s straight up vicious! When I look at it, it says Dragon Slayer to me! It’s very mid-evil, kings, queens, castles, dragons and wenches. Someone in a movie should be wearing it. Definitely a conversation piece!

The original piece (claw) was molded, shot in wax, hollowed out and drilled. It’s only half hollowed so it is still has a nice weight and feeling. You will know you are wearing it. The piece sits just above the chain (see last photo) but has the chain moving through it. It is lightly oxidized to bring out maximum detail and give it an intense feeling of warrior.

It looks great on Men and Women. The texture is beautiful and natural.

~Pendant:
• Height: 1 3/8” (35mm)
• Width: 1/2 “ (13mm)
• Depth: 8mm at highest point

The foot step has 'Yellow Submarine' painted on it and it has the delightful Fab 4 on the back!!

Make Cake, Not War Bags


Artist Statement: Make Cakes not War is our own image based on a 1910 Viennese cake decorating book that we found in an antiquarian bookshop. We LOVED the marzipan frogs and knew we just had to turn them into something wearable and witty! This print manages to get its message across with humour - be prepared for lots of grins and nice comments when you wear this.

The bag converts to shoulder bag or rucksack and is both smart and practical. Width is approx 15 inches (38 cm) Height approx 11 inches (28 cm) Depth approx 2 inches ( 5 cm) - though the bag will happily expand when it's full.

All in all, a professionally-made, strong, gorgeous bag - with an individually made print (done by us)that combines the best of specialist factory quality with a handmade, individually printed and applied image. The result? A very limited edition bag customised to your own preferences - but at a lower price than many chain-store bags.

Skeleton Key Tie


Artist Statement: Escape Artist

Inspired by the rich lore surrounding the life of Harry Houdini, the Cyberoptix TieLab has once again partnered with All Purpose in Los Angeles to design a line of neckwear around this late-Victorian-era icon. Few know that Houdini began his career working in a necktie factory, so we couldn't be happier to carry on this homage!

A slight departure from our usual silkscreened ties, this limited edition series is handcrafted from the most luxurious heavyweight silk, each adorned with a unique, reclaimed antique skeleton key estimated to be at least 60-150 years old. The key is further restrained by hand-patinated, solid copper and solid brass chain that easily detaches for tying and cleaning.

This is what I envision Romulus to be adorned with whilst atop the hill opposite Remus, waiting for the birds to choose Rome's new leader. Enjoy.

Beaded Blyth Doll


Artist Statement: Beautiful Blythe doll covered in seed beads. Her auburn hair is African braided with black extensions. Her eyes no longer change colors, but she does have an extra eye on the back of her head. It's brown.

This is a truly spectacular, one of a kind art piece.

Let me tell you how I came to bead a Blythe doll. I had beaded a Dunny which you can see on my esty shop or on my website www.janhuling.com. I took it out to Brooklyn to show to Tristan Easton who designed the dunny shape for Kidrobot. He loved it and gave me some other toys to cover and challenged me to do Blythe. At first I didn't think I could and I lived with her for a while before I figured out how to approach her. The beads I used on her face are the size I usually use, #11s. But her body is so skinny that I had to use teeny beads, I think they're #15s. I started out by taking her to an African hair salon to be braided, they didn't blink an eye when I asked for extensions and braid and they did a fantastic job. I sent them a pic of the finished piece.

As for the meaning of this piece, I leave that up to the viewers and I really do appreciate all of your comments. Yeah, she is kinda scary, but she's a benevolent goddess, believe me! And, yeah, she's crazy expensive and I doubt that she'll ever sell. I put my work up on etsy mostly to expose it and get feedback. I've sold a few (very expensive) pieces and, to be honest, it's really hard for me to part with them. I've also shown them in museums.

Morning Glory


Artist Statement: This fun and fancy short dress is perfect for summer.

It is made of high quality 100% Linen that I have hand dyed. The fabric is up-cycled from industrial remnants which would other wise be discarded. Breathable and flowing for the hot weather (at least in California). And it can be worn two ways. There is shirring at the center of the neck and a folded collar that gives a small cowl effect. The over sized front pockets are awesome. They hold all your stuff with out pulling and weighing down the dress. Available in sm, med, and lg.


Would love to see this top in a cotton fabric, as I refuse to iron. Wash, dry on the hanger and wear, that's the stuff. (Otherwise, you end up spending hours each week ironing and that's no fun.)

Wonderfully poufy fairy ball gown


Artist Statement: Whew! what to say. this puppy is gorgeous, the neetest fabric i had found, and it was a blast to make! the whole costume consists of two fabrics, that coordinate together. the first is the blue/magenta irridescent crinkle that makes up the skirt and the base of the bodice. then the extra full skirt is covered with a layer of the sparkling and crinkled irridescent organza. this fabric is so neat, the pictures don't quite catch the metallic glimmer these fabrics have! The corset bodice is boned with spring steel, and is v-d in front, with a gather of the organza over the bust. the organza on the bodice is accented with 'volcano' austrian crystals, this crazy red/blue/purple color for some glitz. the bodice laces up in back. the skirt is caught up into tucks with royal blue ribbons all over the skirt.

the skirt on this set is two elastic waistbands, which could be replaced with drawstrings. they would accomodate up to a 50 inch waist. The hem is extra long to accomodate a really tall person, even in a large hoop skirt (as the picture shows). The bodice is sized for a size 8-12.

Each glass is different as it is painted by hand. Your glasses will be shipped carefully and tastefully packaged in bubble wrap, tissue paper and a sturdy box.

Cabernet Ring
