In Honor of Alice......


In honor of Tim Burton/ Disney's Alice in Wonderland coming out this weekend , I have a few things I would like
to share with you from the studio.
I have always had a love for all things Alice.


Reagan and I are off for our little mommy and me "date" to see the movie in just a couple of hours. (3D so excited!). So ....

I didn't want to show these to you with out offering them, but I don't have time to list on Etsy tonight . I am going to put a pay pal button on each of these tonight on the blog, and then I will move them over to Etsy on Sunday. If you purchase them off the blog, I do offer a 2 payment layaway plan . (1/2 now , and half in 30 days) to make it so much easier on the pocket book.
If you would like the layaway plan, and the piece is sti
ll available ,just email me and I will send you a separate invoice for it.
Each piece will arrive gift boxed , and shipping is FREE within US.

"Your nothing but a pack of cards!" ~Alice"The Queens Minion"

Now available on my Etsy

click above for details

This is one of the Queen's little minions. I picture him singing
"We're painting the roses red". All 3 pendants have sterling silver chains and clasps which I will happily adjust to the length you would like. Each are made from a vintage frozen charlotte doll from c. 1890-1910. Their backs are copper that has been etched with vintage inspired designs by me. Their handmade little copper box bodies have vinta
ge heart playing cards and sterling beading. Each of the queens court, and the queen herself, have high ruffled sterling silver mesh collars that have been given an aged patina.


"Do you play Croquet?" ~The Queen of Hearts
"The Queen of Hearts"

Most of the Queen's "finery" has been assembled from antique Victorian tintype foil frames. The frames are so tiny, and so incredibly ornate , they were perfect for Her Highness. Her crown is handmade from brass that I have again etched, and detailed with the antique frame filigree. Her frock is a ruffled sterling silver mesh. She carries a sterling silver staff detailed with more antique frame filigree and findings.

"I'm late!"

Ok ,I have to admit he is my favorite.
I love creating different variations of the white rabbit.

He has a vintage clock inside him, and a etched copper pocket watch aside him, and yet he is still late!
The White Rabbit

"OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!"I'm sorry , I just couldn't resist that one.
