Dragonfly Pendant


Artist Statement: All pendants have been hand made by me.

Pendants have a graphic attached that has been sealed with a water resistant resin which gives it a glass like appearance. I use a high grade, 2 part epoxy which gives my tiles a crystal clear shine that will not yellow over time. They dry glossy and very hard.

Each pendant has a silver plated bail and will come with an 18 inch ball chain necklace. If you would like the necklaces to be shorter, please convo me and let me know what length you would like.

Pendants are water resistant but are not recommended for swimming or bathing.

Some pendants have been embellished with a Swarovski crystal.

Lanvin Headband


Artist Statement: Jeanne Lanvin started as an apprentice milliner at age 16 and worked in hats before becoming a couturière some 10 years later.

One of the most influential designers of the 1920s and '30s, Jeanne Lanvin's skilful use of intricate trimmings, virtuoso embroideries and beaded decorations in clear, light, floral colors became a Lanvin trademark.

This Lanvin inspired 1920's headband is a simple wide grosgrain ribbon that can be tied in the back, and worn in many ways. It can be worn in the true flapper style down on your forehead, or in a more modern style pushed back on top.

It is embellished with a gorgeous beaded piece and a tuft of imported emu feathers.

Lotus Flower


Artist Statement: Lotus flower is etched on a 20mm by 15mm fine silver and hung on 16-inch sterling silver Rollo chain. The fine silver is oxidized to show the details of the lotus flower design. The necklace can be extended to 18 inches using the extension chain.

Shizen Designs jewelry is hand-crafted in Bellingham, WA, USA.

Seahorse King Blank Journal


Artist Statement: Come dive under the sea in this sparkly fantasy scene with a regal Seahorse King swimming amidst bubbles and pearls in swirling frothy aqua blue waters!

I've decorated this blank journal with polymer clay, pearls, iridescent glass gems, crystal droplets, metal starfish and seahorse, acrylic paint and PearlEx powdered pigments. The border was hand-painted with gold leaf pen.

It was so hard to capture a good photo of the shimmery PearlEx and touches of gold and silver. I think this is one that you will say "Oh Wow!" if you were holding it in your hands. The iridescence in the crystal droplets and the gems changes depending on how the light hits them also.

This spiral bound journal has 100 lined pages and is signed on the back by me. It measures 5.5" x 8.5"

Petals and Twigs Necklace


Artist Statement: Square sterling silver sticks are the frame work for floating petals of 18k/ss bimetal. Oxidized for greater contrast and beauty. 15 inches long and 1.5 inches wide. Available in other sizes at no additional cost.

Medici Leather Belt


Artist Statement: Inspired by the decoration and intricate craftsmanship of Old World Italy, this antique-brass colored buckle is an homage to the great artisans, and created with the utmost attention to detail.

Made of brown Italian leather, this belt has a smooth, natural texture. The Sugarcrane logo is debossed at the end, and two snap buttons allow the buckle to be detached.

Belt Size Waist Size
XS 26"- 29"
S 30"- 32"
M 33"- 35"
L 36"- 38"

Please send me a note if you would like to purchase a Medici buckle separately.

Carved Kitchen Broom


Artist Statement: The carved kitchen broom is our most versatile overall broom with "Tree Spirit" carving on the handle. Not only can you use it …… it sweeps better and lasts many times longer than its commercial counterparts. This broom is extremely functional and decorative as well as being a blessing to your home. The “Tree Spirits” or “Green Man” is a traditional style of woodcarving dating back to the Middle Ages. Each carving is done by hand, using only traditional German hand carving tools.

It was believed by them of the old religions that if one could capture the spirit of the tree and bring it to their home, it would protect their home and good fortune would follow. Our woodcarvings are completely hand-carved by us using traditional wood carving tools and techniques. We do not use any form of mechanical reproduction, such as rotary tools. We believe in honoring the life of the wood. You can tell and feel the difference in something that has been carved by hand verses industrial equipment. Our most versatile overall broom. Not only can you use it …… it sweeps better and lasts many times longer than it’s commercial counterparts. Extremely functional and decorative as well as being a blessing to your home.As in all our brooms, the brush fiber is made of only the highest quality 100% broomcorn. The handles are kiln-dried hardwoods from the Ozark Mountains. The raw materials, tools and techniques used date back hundreds of years. We do every aspect of the work, from harvesting the raw materials out of nature to the finished piece. A balance between function, décor and the sacred is our purpose.

Goldfish Pendant


Artist Statement: I created this mini goldfish pond to mimic a cute design often found on Japanese papers and fabrics- complete with anacharis stems and bubbles!

This 1-1/2 x 3/4" silver plated pendant includes an 18" (with 2" extender chain) black ribbon cord necklace. The following cords are available by request: black ribbon/cord, navy blue ribbon/cord, turquoise ribbon/cord, bright blue ribbon/cord, black leather cord, and 16" silver colored ball chain (see my other listings for these colors).

I sculpted the bubbles, anacharis plants and koi from colored polymer clay, and added markings to the fish with a high-quality acrylic paint that has been heat set for durability. I used a filigree design to create the spiraling water- coiling, placing and cutting each strand of shimmery clay by hand. Two coats of sealant should help protect it, but avoid exposing it to water and extreme heat or cold.

La Mer Pendant


Artist statement: I have never seen cameos quite like these. I was so taken by them. These rare vintage sepia and ivory cameos depict nautical scenes. Set on an oxidized oak leaf brass setting with complimentary glass beads at the center. The chain shown is 45cm/ 18" but I can easily lengthen it, just convo with me. The cameo is acrylic and measures 40x30mm/1.6 x 1.2". I have two different styles shown, convo with me about your preference and you may also select the bead you would like to go with your necklace.

Impromptu


Artist Statement: If you have not seen the gloriously funny and romantic film "Impromptu", starring Judy Davis and Hugh Grant (and Mandy Patinkin and Emma Thompson, even..)....GET THEE TO YOUR NETFLIX CUE...

I became rather obsessed with these two after seeing it.

Beautiful earrings portraying the famous writer George Sand (Aurora Dudavant)...a woman with special compensation by the French govt in the 1800's to wear men's clothing.....and the brilliant and frail Frederick Chopin...a man who made a single instrument sing with the voices of angels.

She pursued him rather hotly...he was a reluctant lover...the courtship was a true reversal of gender roles for the era, and whilst it didn't last forever...it was a rather extraordinary romance.

Sea Daisies


Artist Statement: Only recently have I discovered the wonders of fossilized coral and I must admit that I am completely taken with it. This ring features a feather-shaped cabochon blanketed in a delicate pattern of flower-like rounds. The stone is composed of rather unusual coloring ranging from golden yellow to slate gray. The outer edges of the ring are adorned with rows of fine silver and 14 karat yellow gold orbs. The piece measures 33 by 17mm and is completely handmade in 100% recycled silver and gold. The back of the ring and 4mm band have a brushed finish.

This ring is ready to ship in a size 8 and can not be resized. Please see my profile for more information about recycled metals.

Posy Necklace


Artist Statement: I discovered the image used in Posy Necklace in a lovely historical book of Germanic fabrics used in the Middle Ages. The necklace is made of printed plastic, which is quite strong, yet wonderfully lightweight! The piece measures 1.5" x 4" and swings from a 14" oxidized sterling silver chain. A tiny little glass bead element has been added for movement and interest. These tiny beaded elements can vary according to the whim of the artist! ;)

Garden Party Scarf


Artist Statement: .Blue sky and summer flowers...bands of blues, dark and light, copper, brass, violet, pink and the palest of greens, accented with rose, mango, pale, pale violet, and a tiny touch of gold and peach.

This beautiful scarf is 70" x 4" with 7" of gorgeous, hand knotted fringe. Elegant and delicate for a garden party or wrap it around your neck and wear it with the tails down the back with a little black dress for a sophisticated, romantic look.

This scarf is hand washable. Lay flat to dry steam iron with pressing cloth and it is ready to wear again.

Gingko Leaf with Insect Earrings

Each time I make these they have silght variations in the patina, and the location of the insect may be different. This makes each pair one of a kind.

Cherry Quartz Pendant

Cherry Quartz Pendant by Shazzabeth

Artist Statement: The main feature of this pendant is the beautiful tear drop shaped cherry quartz. Cherry Quartz is a manufactured glass stone which through the shading of the colouring and the sharp facets gives the appearance of quartz. The cherry quartz has been wire wrapped in sterling silver. A beautiful Karen silver white rose charm is featured at the top of the pendant, with three Karen silver holly flowers lined up at the base of the pendant. A few sterling silver beads have been used to add a little something extra to the overall effect of the pendant. A beautiful pendant for those who love to wear something pink and pretty.
