Butterfly wings and things

Finally Spring is here, the days are getting warmer and I’m ready to crawl out of hibernation. I’m back. All Winter I’ve been really busy crafting and creating to stock up and prepare for upcoming markets. These items will also be avaiable online through my Etsy shop.

Check out my new treasures..

Glass lockets with ethically sourced butterfly wings

We all know I like a little bit of dead things, and how delightful are butterfly wings?

I was looking into casting butterfly wings in resin but decided it was a bit too messy a project for me to tackle with little people in the house. My next thought was to have some kind of glass locket to display the wings in a I found these beauties. They’re very strong, made with real glass and incase the wings firmly. The locket can be opened but not without a good tug on the latch, so the chances of these opening while wearing is very slim.

Miniature toadstools for fairy gardens

Handmade with clay, hand painted and sealed for outdoor use.

I love fairy gardens and lately I’ve noticed a lot of fairy garden ornaments available in shops which is totally rad. Fairy gardens hell yeah! But I had noticed any toadstools I bought tend to fade and haven’t been great quality. So, I made my own. There is quite a bit of work that goes into making these, but they’re sturdy, weather proof and look pretty sweet if I do say so myself.

Curiouser & curiouser kits

Tiny little boxes of trinkets to explore, create and inspire to go treasure hunting..

I had about 6 little blue boxes I’d bought for something else but they were too small. So I’ve been wondering what to do with them. I also found myself with lots of little glass bottles and some left over butterfly wings from another project.. then my mind starting ticking over. When I come up with new ideas for markets they have to be something I would like to own, and tiny boxes with little trinkets is something I am strangely drawn to. I made these for anyone esle who finds such things interesting, and I encourage you to collect items to add them to this wee box.

New range of art greeting cards

Thanks to all who voted on facebook, I made the selection based on the most popular cards and themes.

And of course.. lots more hanging toadstools. This may very well be the last batch before Christmas so if you’re keen to get one for a gift be sure to place an order soon!

 

If you’d like to hear more about the market stalls I will be attending, be sure to follow me on facebook. Otherwise my crafts can be purchased online through Etsy or send me a message via the contact page if you have any questions.
