Alluring Victorian


Artist Statement: Entirely handcrafted, This design features ’Proserpine’ by famed Pre-Raphaelite artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Goddess of the Underworld, she nibbles daintily on a pomegranate in contemplation of her immortal fate.

This stunning image has been transferred to clay, fired, then sealed using a 3-step process to retain its durability and sheen. Its natural sparkle is further enhanced by tiny metallic flecks embedded in the clay prior to firing. This adds an additional subtle shimmer to the finished piece. The miniature is then framed, painted, and antiqued. An intricate clay backing is painted, given a patina and then attached. I painstakingly create each clay pendant one at a time.

I have designed this piece using only the finest quality stones and materials in my creation. Proserpine is adorned in creamy pale pink Swarovski pearls and hand-crafted clay beads formed around vintage faceted glass stones. Below her swings a hand-formed clay drop embellished by vintage Swarovski crystal decor. Antiqued silver-tone metal is used throughout the piece.

Approx. Pendant Size: 1.5" x 4" (including drop).

I've created this 18" necklace to accommodate all neck sizes. Open the lobster clasp and connect it to any of the individual chain links for the perfect fit. No need to fret over details; I will contact you directly after purchase to discuss your desires and will attend to every question. Please view the information below for options and additional information:

Artist Statement: BRAND NEW! Have a cooler lobster bib than anyone else on the block, but please don't slop butter all over it! Perfect for culinary crustacean lovers and natural history buffs alike. Original illustration adapted from a vintage print.

Rust ink on black.

We've decided to print our favorite Fancy Lobster design onto some amazing hand-woven, Fair-Trade* silk scarves! A big lobster with his embellished feeler adorns the end of this scarf. Just like the ties, we hand-screen them all in our Detroit studio.

This is a soft, extremely lightweight gauzy and delicate larger scarf than our silk ascot, measuring about 13.5" x 69" + knotted fringe. Note: minor imperfections are part of the charm and character of handcrafted silk.

* We are very concerned about the material quality and working conditions from which obtain the fabric we print on.

Painting: Liz as Cleopatra


Artist Statement: my tribute to the film that is infamous for nearly bankrupting 20th C Fox. The second most expensive film produced in the United States after Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

The canvas is unusual and looks great on the wall because it is round (24" diameter) and the sides are painted black, so the painting is all ready to hang as is, easy peasy, no frame necessary :) its has also been given a lovely matt varnish

The painting is a little tired from its journey to a show in Canada and back, which i have reflected in the low price, but its nothing more than a little loose on the frame and you can see a slight mark in photo5, nevertheless it does not take away how stunning this looks in the flesh (even if i do say so myself!!)

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me
will ship anywhere, if you do not see your country listed just ask and i will price it up :D

...give this girl a good home!

It is a 100% hand crafted, 12"x12" square pillow is based on the icon for the Really Simple Syndication web feed many of us use in our day to day interneting.

Zergling


Artist Statement: Want to hatch your own little Zergling? Unlike those creatures used for a Zergling Rush, this little fellow is One-Of-A-Kind.

Zerglings are little creatures from various computer games, who are as cute as they are vicious with their extremely sharp fangs, spikey arm-head things and ferocious appetites. This little Zergy is an orphan, a forgotten creature from an epic battle, who finds that he enjoys hanging out with people who like to game.

He is made entirely of hand-dyed, pure merino wools, adorned and stuffed with the same yarns. Completely hand-knit, originally designed, and lovingly created, this little non-combat pet is sure make a good little companion. Zergy stands about 4.5" tall (spikes included), 5" inches long and 3 inches across. There are no removable parts or plastic parts and therefore completely safe for children of all ages.

Every creature I knit is made without patterns or guide, making each of these little critters, completely unique. Improvised knitting is about revealing the personalities of each of these little soft sculptures. Every creature includes a linen tag with my handmade mark on it.

From a smoke and pet free home.

Vintage Merlin Earrings


Artist Statement: MERLIN earrings marked JJ feature pewter colored metal of detailed wizard and aurora borealis finished rhinestones in his hat. The earrings measure approx. 2 3/4" x 7/8" and are in very good condition with no damage.

As the pieces are vintage and gentley used (some more so than others) there may be wear to the piece(s) and it may need some cleaning or polishing. I just don't have the time or the tools to clean all the pieces.

Labradorite Ring


Artist Statement: I found this enormous flashy labradorite (37mm x 30mm) and had to make this cocktail ring with it. It is faceted and covered with flashes of green and blue with horsetail inclusions. So amazing! This ring is pretty heavy so I gave it a wide tapered band, 5mm at the back and 10mm close to the stone. The ring is a size 9.25, looks great on index fingers! The silver used in this piece is sterling .925.

This piece will arrive in a gift box wrapped in handmade Nepalese paper.

All of my jewellery is entirely handmade using traditional methods and I don’t use any premade parts. Most of my pieces are one of a kind.

Ivory Bib Necklace


Artist Statement: Bib necklaces are all the rage in fashion right now and I love them!!!

I was inspired by more simple sophisticated designs to make any outfit become a statement piece, while still making it look very couture high fashion.

I sewed the black stitching to create a modern zig zig design that flows freely with small black rhinestones at the points for a little bling.

I used fake leather to create the front and the necklace is reinforced with eco-friendly felt made from recycle plastic bottles. The felt makes it soft and comfortable against your skin. Then I took grosgrain ribbon and sewed it on the ends of the bib necklace to hold it in place. I used fray check to make sure the ends of the ribbon stay in tack and do not fray.

The great thing about these bib necklaces it you can tie the ribbon to whatever length you want to fit you perfectly.

Great for any season!
