Nomad Dress


Artist Statement: This dress is inspired from a trip to Western SiChuan two years ago where I saw fairiest natural scenes which moved a girl going together to cry, where most beautiful Tibeten women and most manly and bold Tibeten men live. Can you imagine holy snow mountains in the distance, crystal blue stream galloping through ten of thousands pink and white azalea full in blossom? Can you imagine a lake with bright purple, blue, green, white colored water? Can you imagine you sit in an outdoor natural hot spring surrounded by sublime natural beauty? Can you imagine a treking road along with fancy trees in yellowish green leaves like something can only appear in impressionism paintings?

I love nomad in Asia, the ways to wear bright colored garments, the heart of an innocent child, the courage to abandon the past and pursuit a new beginning, the longing for spiritual freedom...

I hope you will like this dress, an artistic piece will bring you to a free new world.

Felted Scarf Collar


Artist Statement: Spectacular scarf-collar in the Victorian style. Visually lengthens the neck, looks very interesting and elegant, especially with updo hairstyles.

Kusudama Hair Stick



Artist Statement: The Japanese have been the finest producers of paper in the world for over a thousand years, so it's no surprise that Origami, the most famous of all the paper art forms, is also Japanese. Using carefully selected papers to achieve the desired look, Origami is at once distinctive and beautiful.

This particular Origami piece is a Kusudama, a traditional ornament which is considered to be a talisman against evil. As soon as I saw a Japanese Kusudama ball I fell in love with it! I wanted one to wear in my hair, but the average Kusudama ball is made using 4-inch square sheets of Origami paper, and is over 4 inches wide. I just couldn't imagine putting one of those in my hair!

So, I set out to make Kusudama balls for my hairsticks, using the smallest sheets of paper I could work with. The tiny sheets of Origami paper that I used were 2.5cm wide, or a fraction under an inch each. Each Kusudama is made up of 40 to 60 individual flowers, so you can imagine how many hours it took to put this adorable ball together. The finished Kusudama ball has been lacquered well to harden and protect it, and is set off by a beautiful all sterling silver setting.

The stick itself is green, with a grippy texture that will hold really well in your hair. It has a usable length of 5 inches, and the Kusudama ball brings the whole length up to 7 inches.

Maya Pendant


Artist Statement: This pretty antiqued brass pendant has been mounted with one of my own art images titled "Maya". It was then set under a protective high gloss dimensional gel.

The pendant measures approx 1.25 x 1.75 inches across (30 x 40mm). The brass chain is approx 17 inches long (43cm ) and has been fitted with a lobster clasp for easy closing.

Neck Warmer


Artist Statement: This neck warmer is made of super soft 100% Wool. Pumpkin color. You can wear it with your winter coat or with a light spring jacket for a little extra warmth.

Hand made Buttons to match.

This is an adult size, but will fit older children.

Wash by hand for best care.

This neck warmer was made in a smoke-free and pet-free home.

Penny Farthing Art Locket



Artist Statement: I have the extreme pleasure of collaborating with Etsy award-winning photographer, Irene Suchocki. Her stunning work was featured on a recent episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition". She creates 'little poems for the eyes' and our talents merge to bring you little poems to adorn your neck!

This photograph is printed on Kodak Endura's gorgeous metallic paper. The colors are exceptionally vivid and the image has a unique three-dimensional quality. The paper has a lovely pearlescent sheen and it's simply stunning in it's brass locket frame. The whimsical "Penny farthing" image is captured inside of a fabulous brass medallion locket which features a warm antique finish and is sealed with a glass-like coating for protection and shine.

When snapped shut, the front of the medallion boasts a beautifully decorated textured pattern design while the backside shows a smooth finish. There is an empty recessed area opposite the art image for you to mount your favorite picture of your own choosing or leave alone for "Penny farthing" to get all the admiration!

The art illustration measures 28mm around (just over 1 inch) and the locket measures 38mm (about 1 1/2 inches). The medallion hangs on a brass figaro chain which is a generous 28 inches, but can be shortened upon request.

Ambrosia Earrings


Artist Statement: When I started making the Ambrosia style earrings I always told myself that if they proved to be popular I would do them in another colour - I had seen a place that sold them hand-dyed (more expensive than normal ones, but too beautiful to pass up). Well, to my delight, they have been popular (thankyou to everyone who has bought and loved them!), and so I present them in a colour I have dubbed "Midnight" - a really dark blue that sometimes appears to be black.

I'm offering them with two choices for the earring findings - silver or black. The black nickel blends better with the colour of the feathers, but as many people are sensitive to the plating that colours a lot of jewellery components (me being one of them!), I'm also doing them in silver - meaning the filigrees and other parts are silver-plated, and the ear hooks are sterling silver, at no extra cost.

From the top of the ear hook to the bottom of the longest feather measures 20cm (8 inches), the width at its fullest is 11-12cm (approx. 5.5 inches).

Square Necklace


Artist Statement: A huge square for you to wear!

The wood square is 2" X 2" and the necklace is 19" ( with a 2" chain extention) with the square dropping 2" below.

*** I cut, pierce, sand and polish every piece of wood by hand. For more information, contact me or see my Shop policies.

All in Pink Earrings


Artist Statement: Features fine garnet in different colors. Hand wrapped with sterling silver wire and oxidized to give a antiqued look. Wrapped part is 17mm*26mm. 1 1/2"(4cm) from the top of earwire. Light weight, small size, perfect for everyday wearing.

Fiji Petal Ring


Artist Statement: this ring is a like a tropical escape in the palm of your hand! its made from glass and sterling silver. Like all poppi rings, they fit a wide range of finger sizes - somewhere between size 6-ish and 8 1/2. It depends a lot on how dense your finger is and what is comfortable to you. The petal ring itself takes up about 1 1/4" of your finger. It sounds huge, but it really is very wearable and dramatic.

Coneflower Earrings


Artist Statement: Thank you for checking out my jewelry!

Making this jewelry is, more or less, just an excuse for me to play with colors. With a background in painting and ceramics, and a passion for jewelry, I have found a way to incorporate painting with jewelry through the colored resins. All of the colors are hand-mixed using lightfast artist pigments, and no two pieces ever come out quite the same.

The graphic quality found in my work stems from the singular, raw moment of seeing something for the first time; but they are also inspired by the elegance that can be found only by distilling something down to its simplest form.

These earrings are 1" wide and 1 1/4" long. Each piece is sterling silver with hand-pigmented resin inlay, and comes in an embossed crimson gift box.

2 in 1 Skirt, reversible


Artist Statement: The Skirt has a basic A line cut, with a fitted waist with drawstring for maximum comfort. The fabric is organic cotton, medium weight. This beauty is reversible, you can wear it on the plain panel side or flip it over tho the eyelash side for extra texture. Super comfortable, great for all seasons. The hem is a frayed hem, so if it is too long you can cut it to your desired length.

Vintage Watchface Bag


Artist Statement: This bag is made of a heavy duty durable but soft canvas in khaki grey. Is a great size for a nappy bag, school bag, overnight bag, and would even fit a laptop.

The handle is fully adjustable. If you prefer a different fabric please view my other items including sold items, then convo me to tell me what you like and I will let you know if there is more available.
