Alice is So Charming

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

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).

I made lots of pendants with vintage horse illustrations for the arts and crafts fair during the World Equestrian Games and have a few that didn’t sell so I’m listing them now in my Etsy shop. Here’s a few of them:

Go Look It Up

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

When I was little and asked my parents what something meant they always told me to “go look it up”, i.e in the dictionary, encyclopedia, etc. It’s not that they didn’t want to help me, they wanted me to learn to use the books and find the answers for myself. Maybe that’s why I now love old dictionaries? I remember mine was red, with little cut out half circles on the pages where the letters where, funny how things like that stick with you.

Here’s a few soldered pendants made with illustrations from a wonderful vintage dictionary from the early 20’s. I added black patina to all the soldering and the backs of the pieces are their definitions.

a really cool raven:

a fat little toad ( I just love him!):

Fly Free

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

I just can’t seem to stop making things with birds :) Here are a couple of new mixed media necklaces I made last week.

I enjoyed making my Alice in Wonderland Domino charms so much I used a larger domino, inked it blue and stamped a really cool flying bird on it and then soldered around the edges, adding two sets of jump rings to the top to hang from the ball chain. I also adhered a glass rhinestone to the front for a little added bling:

I also made this necklace with a pretty silver bird charm and a tiny soldered word charm that says “fly away” on vintage music paper, also on a ball chain:

Critters

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

I recently went to a wonderful large antique show with a friend (who bought a super cool vintage Ouija board) and found a couple of really cute children’s books from the 60’s. People are always asking me where I find the book I use for my art work and my best recommendations are used book shops and antique shows, you can usually find some really great books, vintage photos, postcards, music sheets, etc.

Here’s a couple of soldered pendants I made using some illustrations from one of those books.

A tiny cute squirrel, the back says “oh nuts”:

A sweet fawn, the back says “oh deer”:

a sly little fox, the back says “foxy”:

and my personal fave a chimp in a party hat and pink bow tie:

I think the back is pretty funny too:

Almost Antiques

Friday, February 12th, 2010

One of the great old children’s books I got recently was in really bad shape, pages torn, falling apart and crumbling but it wasn’t surprising considering the book was dated 1918, it’s almost 100 years old! It has some simply gorgeous illustrations in it, lots of cute animals reading books and fairies in flowers, they are simply lovely! Here are a few soldered pendants I’ve made with some of the illustrations.

A trio of birds reading / singing:

A sweet bunny rabbit reading, I love the little bird perched on the top of the book:
