Wire Wrapped Petsokey Stone


Artist Statement: A huge piece of Petsokey stone wire wrapped and ready to be strung. 50 x 40 mm

Petoskey Stone - a stone found only here in my beloved Michigan....is a type of fossilized colony coral that lived during the Devonian period about 350 million years ago when Michigan had a warm inland sea. Because of the "eye" type configurations it shows especially when polished, it is said to mystically help stimulate the third eye and psychic awareness. Petoskey Stone is also said to keep mischievous spirits from channeling incorrect information or interfering with one's life. In particular, as far as awareness, Petoskey Stone is said to enhance awareness of the emotions, which can be a boon for dealing with emotional issues. It is also said to clear out negative energies from the aura and the environment. Traditional healing folklore and crystal healing lore purport that Petoskey Stone is helpful for healing Aids, Cancer, CFS, eyes, head, infections, infectious disease, lungs, skeletal system, and tumors of all kinds.

Teal Gemstone Earrings


Artist Statement: Stunning Teal Blue Fluorite expertly cut in concave facets. Very rare in color and shape. These are grade AAA gemstones in a square shape, drilled at one corner, so it dangles in a diamond-shape.

Stones are 13mm (measured from top corner to bottom) and weigh approximately 9 carats.

I've wire-wrapped the gemstones, using Fine silver (99% pure), onto Sterling silver ear wires. I've added a Sterling silver 'mirror' bead for sparkle galore.

Jonquil, Monster Jar


Artist Statement: Jonquil is a beauty queen from planet Wratchet. She won the Ms. Northern Wratchet competition 5 years running and then retired in her prime. A year later it became know that she had posed partially nude in Monstergirl and was stripped of her titles. She likes Spongebob cartoons and sunbathing.

Created 11/08, Jonquil is a one of a kind low fire ceramic vessel, 9.5" high.

All monsters are signed, dated and named on the bottom. Each is a strictly unique creation, never copied or repeated. The main forms are thrown on the wheel and all the rest is hand sculpted. These sculptural art works are made with "big kids" in mind.

Though all Claymonster creations are obedient creatures and can serve any purpose, they especially love to hold cookies and dog treats.

We have been warned by Claymonster owners that no monster should be fed Egg Nog. Results can be catastrophic.

Vintage Typewriter Earrings


Artist Statement: Sometimes the years and treatment are so evident on these keys but there is beauty in them still. I love the way these keys look. I don't know what has caused this to happen to them but I love the patina. I've celebrated their color variations by adding a vintage look stamping and tiny faceted bead. They have a subtle luster and picasso finish. These are quite unique and there isn't another set like this anywhere. The ear wires are Sterling silver and from the top of them to the bottom of the dangle measures just over 2 1/2".

The keys are left as authentic as possible. Because the keys are from real typewriters, they show the effects of normal use and aging over many years. Most typewriter keys I use are 50 - 60 years old, at least.

Bleached Art on Recycled Vintage Denim


Artist Statement: I bleach these designs on vintage denim using my own process that I spent months developing. This one is a floral design in multiple shades.

The jacket is a ladies Lee brand, looks to be a medium or small. The measurement between top shoulder seams is 17.5 inches, from top shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve is 20.5 inches The denim pieces I use are vintage and therefore "used". So there will be imperfections, which just give them that "loved" and "lived in" look.

Turquoise and Silver Necklace


Artist Statement: I have made this necklace from flower stamped hilltribe silver beads and genuine turquoise beads that display gorgeous earthy green, blue and brown tones. Each bead is approximately 3/8 inch (10mm) but they range in size and colour as each bead is unique. I have finished it with a handmade sterling silver clasp and handmade soldered chain.

The silver beads are hilltribe silver (95-97% pure silver content).

The semiprecious stones are genuine turquoise.

The length of the necklace can be adjusted to between 17 and 18 1/2 inches (43 to 47 cm).

Custom Felted Pet Sculpture


Artist Statement: I have been needle felting for over 10 years and LOVE to create One of a kind (OOAK) portraits of pets and custom orders!

I sell primarily on ebay and at shops and shows, because etsy is so hard to keep up with (unless you actively list an item everyday, your item gets pushed to the end of the list). BUT I have created hundreds of sculptures of pets and wild critters with 100% satisfaction from my buyers.

This listing is for a 3"-4" custom sculpture of your pet. The photos shown are of past sold creations. I generally create my items in the 3"-4" range, this is a good size to work with because I can still get a lot of detail in but the item is a cute small collectible, I do create extra minis 1" or larger items up to 12" but these prices vary. I also gladly create pose able items. Email me anytime for quotes / questions.

Visit my website www.amber-rose-creations.com there you can see many samples of my creations and also click a link to see my 100% Positive feedback on ebay.
You will know you are getting an official Amber Rose creation by the signed photo certificate of authenticity that comes with each item.

Keep in mind these are cutom One of a kind orders, I do not have a stock of items anywhere so there will be a small wait to get your item.
Looking forward to hearing from you with you questions!

It Matters to That One


Artist Statement:

The Starfish Story

adapted from The Star Thrower
by Loren Eiseley (1907 - 1977)

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean."

"I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It matters to that one."

Collapsible Pitcher Vase



Artist Statement: What a marvel - these seemingly flat wood objects can do so many things! You have to see it to believe it!

Each of these clever handcrafted treasures ships/stores flat and serves as a Trivet (hot plate). Then when you want the basket, the Trivet cleverly folds open to become a standing basket.

We cut each basket out of a single piece of select solid Oak using a band saw. Each basket has been beautifully finished with Danish Oil to withstand heat. This magnificent centerpiece gift has a wide range of uses.

Fill the basket with candy, fruit, flowers, potpourri…use your imagination! They can be painted or decorated if you choose.

This unique yet functional product makes a great gift for any occasion – especially birthdays and Christmas. Of course, you should keep a couple for your own decorating needs!

Logic Reason Science



Artist Statement: This is a unique hand-formed and hand painted ceramic science inspired necklace made by Surly Amy at Surly-Ramics. This necklace is one of our small size charms.

Logic, reason and science...three really important things in life. Show the world you are more than just a pretty face with this super cool science inspired necklace!

This piece was originally inspired by the skepchick herself Rebecca Watson who taught us "smart is sexy" and we just took it to the next level with "science is sexy"! Thanks Rebecca for inspiring all of us surly artists to be smart cookies too!

The necklace is painted in a crackle glaze with black and white details. As the glaze cools in the kiln after the second firing process, tiny cracks appear in the glaze, creating a really great antique type finish to the glaze. There is a hint of green to this glaze that makes it a lovely compliment to most skin tones.

This piece will look great on men and women!

I have posted a few photos of the sexy and smart "Surly Sue" and the super awesome "Surly Johnny" wearing similar necklaces in different colors so you can get an idea of how great this piece will look on!

Keena



Artist Statement: Stunning aren't they? The briolettes in these earrings have flash like nobody's business! And at just about every single angle too! They're among the best I've ever seen and have been lucky enough to bring them to you in these eye catching earrings. Oh, these briolettes are special!

Elongated faceted briolettes measuring 20x6.5mm have an amazing flash of mostly blue and green, but do show some hints of gold at certain angles. They are extremely well polished and so glossy. I carefully wire wrapped them in sterling silver to enhance their natural beauty, doing nothing to detract from their already lovely appearance. Total height of earring is around 1 3/4 inches (approx. 44mm). On Bali ball earwires.

These can be oxidized and polished if you prefer. Just leave a note to seller upon checkout that you would like to have them oxidized and I will be happy to do it! :D

If you're a lover of labradorite as I am, then you will not be disappointed in these earrings. These are truly some of the flashiest I've seen and I'm proud to be able to bring such wonderful stones to you. With every movement, you will see what I mean and so will everyone else!! Enjoy!

Forgiven


Artist Statement: Preserved bug and matchbox, both adorned with seed beads, displayed in a beaded shadowbox frame.

This piece is based on my favorite A.A.Milne poem, "Forgiven".

I found a little beetle, so that Beetle was his name.
And I called him Alexander and he answered just the same.
I put him in a match box, and I kept him all the day...

And Nanny let my beetle out
Yes Nanny let my beetle out
She went and let my beetle out
And Beetle ran away.

She said she didn't mean it,
And I never said she did,
She said she wanted matches
And she just took off
The lid.

She said that she was sorry, but it's difficult to catch
An excited sort of beetle you've mistaken for a match.
She said that she was sorry, and I really mustn't mind,
As there's lots and lots of beetles which she's certain we could find,
If we looked about the garden for the holes where beetles hid.
And we'd get another match box and write BEETLE on the lid.

We went to all the places which a beetle might be near,
And we made the sort of noises which a beetle likes to hear,
And I saw a kind of something, and I gave a sort of shout;
"A beetle-house and Alexander Beetle coming out!"

It was Alexander Beetle I'm as certain as can be,
And he had a sort of look as if he thought it must be Me.
And he had a sort of look as if he thought he ought to say;
"I'm very very sorry that I tried to run away."

And Nanny's very sorry too, for you-know-what she did.
And she's writing ALEXANDER very blackly on the lid.
So Nan and Me are friends ... because it's difficult to catch,
An excited Alexander you've mistaken for a match.

So Fly Bellbottom Jeans


Artist Description: This is a sweet ol' pair of bell bottom jeans....they are completely green....in the recycling sense, upcycled jeans and wide vintage neck ties are actually all done up in the blues like the fall skies....for your autumn festival pleasure!!

I make these using the ties intact so thier weight matches the weight of the jeans. The jeans are split at the sides then serged, then I encorporate the groovy ties at the sides. This pair has all funky vintage polyester ties....one is super groovy with butterflies on it! All belt loops and pockets are left intact.

The jeans I used for these were an Old Navy pair with some factory distressing, lycra stretch and a low rise to them. The stretch makes them so are very comfortable to wear. Originally a size 14, I would guess they are more on the line of a size 18-20 plus size, but please refer to measurements for a guide. It is best to measure a pair of jeans you own that fit as you like, then crossreference with my measurements.
