Victorian Brass Snake


Artist Statement: Victorian brass snake stamping made from a vintage press. The snake measures about 62mm across and hangs from about 16 inches of brass rolo chain and is closed with brass lobster clasp. Please let me know if you'd like the chain longer :)

All the brass is treated to avoid darkening and tarnishing and to give it an antiqued look.

Sometimes when I get these stampings in they face the opposite direction than the pictured shows(mirror image). I doubt it'd make any difference to anyone but I thought I'd let ya know ;)

The serpent is one of the oldest and most widespread mythological symbols. The way a snake sheds its skin makes it a universal symbol of renewal, rebirth and the regeneration that may lead to immortality.

Filigree Snake Pendant


Artist statement: This filigree snake was once a pair of vintage earrings, but one of the snakes got lost, and the ear hook came unsoldered from this one. I drilled a hole and made it into an alluring one of a kind pendant. The snake is sterling silver filigree with a naturally oxidized patina.

The chain is 16" and is silver plated with an antique finish. The clasp is also silver plate. The pendant hangs 3 1/2" below the chain. The clasp can be hooked into any of the links, so it can be made as short as you need it. The pendant slides freely on the chain. It is finished with a vintage bicone silver bead.

I would be happy to make this piece longer if you desire, just give me sellers instuctions at check out.

Felted Acorns


Artist Statement: Acorns have long symbolized potential, strength, and patience. Here are some that won't grow into mighty oaks, but will add a natural touch to wherever they land.

I've wet-felted wool roving to make the acorn seeds and then glued them securely into an acorn cap that I gathered from our woods.

You'll receive 15 acorns in the colors you see here which was inspired by the wild violets that pop up in our woods each spring. There are 3 each of deep violet, dusky purple, lavender, muted green, and soft yellow. They vary in size but most are between .75" to 1" in length. The set of acorns you receive may vary slightly, but the colors will be the same.

Use them as tiny pincushions, spread them along a windowsill or nature table, or perhaps give them as a symbol to someone to remind them of the potential they hold.

Your acorns will come packaged in a reusable muslin bag, decorated with a wool oak leaf. The design and leaf color you receive may vary from what's shown here.

Made in my non-smoking home/studio.

Multi Bracelet


Artist Statement: Beautifull bracelet made of high quality clear resin.

The bracelet is 2,45 inches (6.2 cm) wide on the inside.

My resin bracelets 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 bracelets have some decorative elements embedded inside, however some versions come in one, clear colour.

These bracelets are very unique - they come in either one exceptional piece, or in the limited series of few.

Because each bracelet 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 wrist!

Royal Nightcap


Artist Statement: After a long day sitting on the throne, the queen always takes out her royal nightcap for a midnight drink of Brandy. This darling revamped vintage liquor tag is perfect to adorn your neck; a perfect nostalgic delight for any evening out on the town.

The reverse side of the pendant reads Scotch, please let me know which side you of the necklace you would like facing out to the front, I will be glad to reverse it.

The pendant hangs with a rhinestone circle and hangs from brass and antiqued gold chain strung with two cathedral glass beads, the total length is 18.25"

***If you are interested, I also have another identical liquor tag that could be switched if you like, one that reads Gin / Vodka. What ever suits your taste buds!

This nostalgic past time pendant is definitely a conversation starter and is truly stunning in person!

Salute!


Artist Statement: I love this nifty little locket!

This great black and white image was taken in October, 1942 and portrays a US Navy gal from the WAVES division (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service). She's got that sparkle in her eyes and is ready to serve!

This picture is part of the George Eastman House collection (Kodak) which gives us a glimpse into the historical images of that special era and it's simply stunning in it's petite brass frame. The World War II nostalgic image is mounted on an antique oxidized brass locket pendant which hangs on a brass rolo chain. It's sealed with a glass-like coating for protection and shine and the chain is finished with a lobster clasp. Length-16 inches but can be lengthened to 18 per your request!

Inside the locket, there are 2 empty recessed areas for you to mount your favorite pictures of your own choosing. These openings measure 3/4 of an inch around. The outside diameter of the locket measures 27mm (just over 1 inch).

This would make a fabulous gift for that special someone!

Enjoy!

Blue Bee Tapestry Bead


Artist Statement: Lately I've been in a blue mood - but it's a good thing! I've been making blue beads with my tapestry scrollwork in rich black that I hope you will enjoy!

This cute little honeybee sits amidst intricate tapestry scrollwork on a pale blue background. This would make a sweet little pendant or can be used with my other tapestry beads for a more lavish design.

*this exact bee has sold but yours will be very similar!*

Each bead is handcrafted with Italian glass and wound on a 1/16" mandrel. The decorative scrollwork is made from thin glass "stringer" and is melted directly into the bead. All of my beads are made fresh daily and are annealed straight from the torch in a digitally - controlled kiln for lasting durability.

While I do my best to represent the true colors of my beads, color may vary slightly depending on your monitor.

Plum Poppy Pouch


Artist Statement: Please note this item is made to order. Please allow for a three to four day production time for this item to be completed and ready for shipping. Thank you!

Plum Poppy is the perfect date for any occasion, casual or formal. She is flexible like that.

I personally never like just one side of anything I wear or use to be ornate with the other side just plain. Even more so I am fascinated with patterns that continue to the other side. Which is just what I have done here.

She was hand knit in a rich plum wool yarn and machine felted. Then the flowers were dry needle felted to her. She measures approximately 11" wide at the top edge and a little under 10" wide at the base. Her height is approximately 7".

As always, gift wrapping is free. Just let me know at time of purchase that it is a gift, and what you would like the little enclosure card to say.

Golden Kimono


Artist Statement: Elegant, flowing, soft, magical, are some of the descriptions for this beautiful wedding kimono. It is made it out of a silk crepe that has a lovely soft shine to it and I handpaint the design on sleeves, front, and back.

This style has an opening down back which I paint along and finish with tassles at bottom which hold the fabric down yet make it look wonderful when you dance; they flow out behind you...I also did this so you can enjoy dinner sitting down without wrinkling your kimono.

This photo shows a double kimono-a 3/4 length sewn with a full length underneath. I make it with the 3/4 length (48") only and this looks great over a your wedding dress. I also make the dress to accompany it out of stretch silk.

Other colors are available.
