front page

Front page of Etsy!  Over three hundred item views in an hour, usually that would take a month.  Thanks to Rafya, please check out her shop!  I featured one of her beautiful necklaces in one of my treasuries recently, she makes unique clay jewellery pieces.  Making treasuries creates good Etsy karma!

I made this Frida Kahlo matryoshka doll for my friend Claire, who loves Frida. It is so easy to make a recognisable Frida! I had fun making this as it was outside of my usual aesthetic. My favourite parts were doing the hair, for which I plaited some puffy wool and added three little silk roses salvaged from an old valentine's chocolate box (I knew I was saving that for a reason!), and the fabulous vintage trims I used on the body, which are from the voluminous selection over at Manto Fev, that make her look so colourful and Fridaesque!

a quiet kiss

A treasury I made of beautiful items, quiet and sweet.  I especially adore the capelet (a pattern!) and the disc necklace.  Click over to Etsy if you'd like to see the items!

A little lamb knit by my wonderful friend Ramona, aka Jademond!  Such a sweet thing, love it!  She makes the most beautiful things.
