If you’ve read this blog for any time you probably know how much I love Alice in Wonderland. I especially love the original Tennell illustrations which were published in black and white but sometimes you’ll find a copy with colorized illustrations. I found a small abridged version of Alice with color artwork at an antique store and they are the perfect size for pendants. Here’s a few soldered glass pendants I made recently with them.

Alice is So Charming

Wow, I’ve been a terrible blogger lately, sorry! Right before Thanksgiving my 93 year old Grandfather passed away and then I’ve been all caught up getting ready for the holidays, it’s been a hectic (and sad) time.

Right before all this happened though I spent a lot of time getting new jewelry pieces made and am just now getting them on-line. I made a bunch of single soldered pendants and also many charm necklaces too.

Here’s a few new Alice in Wonderland themed necklaces, all currently available in my Etsy shop (along with many more new items as well).

Through the Looking Glass

I recently got some adorable stamps from The Greeting Tree, they are really cute versions of characters from Alice in Wonderland and I thought they were the perfect size for art cards (2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″). Each character was stamped on white cardstock with black staz-on ink and colored using colored pencils and orderless mineral spirits for blending. I cut each out and added them to layers of vintage book paper and cardstocks. Plus I added a stamped embellishment to each, Alice got glittery mushrooms, the Mad Hatter got a glossy tea cup and the White Rabbit got a clock with movable clock hands (from Tim Holtz). I also ran a very thin strip of white core cardstock (from Close To My Heart) through my label maker and sanded them to make each card a name label.
