Little fairy houses made from old fairy tale books, tucked into the shelves with the rest....oooh, what fun that could be! A combination of altered art books, miniatures, and fairy and gnome sculptures from polyclay, with natural elements to make house details....

This mixed media necklace combines leather, metal, stained lace, stained paper, rusted mesh, clay and paint. It also has a vintage barrel key and blood red Garnet attached to the end of a 14 inch chain extension which you can wear it in the front. This piece took many hours to construct as each page is lovingly burned by incense and fashioned in a way that the burned hole in the middle of the page tapers towards a blood red heart.

Love it! Books are houses we live in for a time -- then we bring their riches back to our real lives.
