Now this pieces tells a story. A splattery, goopy story (done in fuzzy felt). How fun! Other flavors are available…

Glassnfire Octopi

Wow…these are the most gorgeous glass blown cephalopods. Wearable as jewelry, or just plain amazing to display.

I really want this little beauty, even if only to sit near me on my desk.

Bakelite

Posted in fashion, jewelry, kitsch, technology, vintage with tags , , , , on July 11, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I have a strange love for the kitschy goodness that is Bakelite.

P1020937

One of the first plastics made from synthetic components, Bakelite was used for its electrical nonconductivity and heat-resistant properties in electrical insulators, radio and telephone casings, and such diverse products as kitchenware, jewelry, pipe stems, and children’s toys. Bakelite was designated a National Historic Chemical Landmark in 1993 by the American Chemical Society in recognition of its significance as the world’s first synthetic plastic.

My favorite pieces, without a doubt, are the clocks, radios…or any combination thereof.

Mother Eagle Embroidery

Posted in anatomy, craft, jewelry with tags , , on May 1, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

You won’t find me embroidering daisies and picnic baskets onto my linens. Mother Eagle is really more my style.

How gorgeous is this miniature silk ribcage on a handmade lace cotton panel?

All kinds of anatomical (and other) fine treats to be found in her collection of work…

She places some of her tiny pieces in jewelry as well.

Have a look…

Halloween Countdown: Stephanie Buscema (a.k.a Wrekinbyrd)

Posted in art, craft, halloween, jewelry, monsters, you can't handle the cute with tags , , , , , on October 22, 2012 by shewalkssoftly

Stephanie Buscema’s necklaces are a wonderful little treat for the Halloween lovers out there who want to keep their accessories unique with a dash of sweetness.

My favorite:

These creations come from original paintings so the creatures you feature will not be seen on any mass produced jewelry.

Cute, festive, fun…

Not a Halloween design, but I love it anyway:
