Verdigris Earrings

Artist Statement:  Small curved verdigris leaves are sealed and paired with a simple antiqued brass hypoallergenic earwire. These earrings are just about 1 1/4" long.

Patina is a chemical reaction to raw brass. It produces beautiful and unpredictable results. Patinas are lightly sealed and may change slightly over time. They also can vary from piece to piece, from teal-blue-green to green-black-brown. Each piece is unique and variation should be expected. Jewelry is represented as accurately as possible on full scale displays.

Earth and Stone Felt Brooches

Artist Statement:  This brooch uses two strong magnets.  One is stitched inside, and the other is for using on the back side of whatever you like to hold together.  You can use it to hold scarfs, shawls, sweaters and any other light fabric, without pinning through it.  As the magnet is very strong, you can use it as a brooch on thick jackets or bags as well.  It can also be used simply to attach notes to any metal surface,and add a floral touch to your fridge or magnetic board.  It will not fall down from any metal hair pins too.

Pride and Prejudice Marriage Proposal Cuff

Artist Statement:  Possibly the most loved chapter of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 34, Mr Darcy's impromptu marriage proposal to Elizabeth Bennet.

I've taken part of Chapter 34 featuring Mr Darcy's speech and Elizabeth's reaction from a 1853 edition of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and finished it in elegant and timeless black. The words pop from the beautiful patina of brass underneath the artwork. This new design to my Jane Austen range will be just like having the Pride and Prejudice book always with you ! I'm ecstatic and proud to say you can now find my literary brass cuffs at Jane Austen's House Museum in Hampshire, England.

The brass cuff measures 1.5" tall and 5.5" round with an opening of 1.5", easily adjustable by using slight pressure once on your wrist. The brass (an alloy of zinc and copper) ages beautifully and uniquely; it will change patina over time and this is completely natural. The artwork I use is slightly translucent and the patterns you see are from the patina of the brass underneath. All protected under a sealant for extra durability but I would advise NOT to go rushing into the sea whilst wearing it or similar interactions with water.

This piece is handmade in England, United Kingdom so please allow 3-5 days before it can be shipped....things have to dry !

Arrives wrapped in non-tarnish tissue paper, gift boxed and tied with organza ribbon, completely gorgeous for gift-giving.

Little Flirt

Artist Statement:  I am so in love with this new collage I put together. Brace yourself..she is gonna be everywhere!  Dainty and ridiculously charming (if I do say so myself) slender drop earrings are just under two inches long, with a black lacquer setting, vivid image of our little flirt with her fan, and black filigree and pink bead drop.

Foks Scarf

Artist Statement:  The Foks is a fox-shaped scarf, designed by Celapiu and made entirely by hand in our studio.

The Fokses originally come in two different species: The Short Foks is just long enough to wrap himself around your neck and take desired position using a special clip, hidden underneath his head. The Long Foks has a stuffed, fully 3D head and paws and is long enough to wrap himself around you in hundereds of different ways. In 2009 two older brothers welcomed newborn baby - The Mini Foks, which was designed for fashionable and animal-loving kids (but can be worn by adults, too!). This year the family was joined by hyper-realistic and noble line of Felt Fokses, organically made from pure wool.

If you like to play with fashion The Foks will make a perfect accessory for this Fall/Winter. Not only playful and kitschy enough to make a style statement, The Foks also carries an ethical anti-fur message.

Celapiu's Fokses are crafted from high qualitity, durable materials.

Safety Pin Bracelet

Safety Pin Bracelet

Safety Pin Bracelet by WhoozQueen

Well, I've had a bit of a break but Xmas is coming, the geese are getting fat and the presents hard to find, aren't they?  I hope that Oohsome can provide some inspiration for you all.

The bracelet pictured above is something that I whipped up last week.  About 65 safety pins, with 4mm beads in olive, deep purple, brass, soft violet and sea green.  I had so much fun making this one that I've decided to do a few more in other colour combinations.  One tip that I can give you, instead of superglueing the pins closed, I pinched them shut after doing the threading.  They're secure, and there's no fiddling around with fast setting glue.

Copper Branch Cluster Earrings

Artist Statement:  These have movement from every angle! Each twig is hand pound, textured and polished and moves when you move. Light bounces off the luster of the metal and will be sure to dazzle when it is reflected in the diamond cut royal purple cubic zirconia beads. Sterling silver ear wires are hand made.

White Shrug

Artist Statement:  This cozy and soft shrug is made by a 100% white wool yarn knitted with a stylish lacy pattern... all edges are finished off with crocheted borders. You can fast it on the front with two cords which end with two little roses with a glass pearl core... play with these two flowers... you can insert the stalks in various positions and give a different look to the shrug... you can even insert the stalks in a little ring and you will have a lovely necklace to wear with the bolero or by itself.

“White Garden” is my own unique pattern... a gorgeous accent to any outfit and a perfect accessory for many occasions... you can wear it over a simple sweater for a funky style, over a blouse or a sleeveless top to warm your shoulder... it looks exquisite when worn with an evening dress and makes an exquisite accessory even for a bride or a bridesmaid.
