The 'Elf-Shelf' or the 'Lost Boy-ish' wooden cabinet / work in progress! ;))))

The 'Elf-Shelf'/ 'Lost Boy-ish' wooden cabinet is in progress! ;))))

This is an old wooden cabinet I recently bought at one of the local thrift shops.

I send-ed it and partially painted in turquoise blue ('Forgotten Secret') & purple ('Cleopatra's Gown')!
And I am still working on it ;p

This is actually the very first picture I took of it, but after applying one coat of a purple paint, LoL! Thanx 'Cynniegurl' for reminding me to do this! ;p

I usually keep on forgetting to take shots of my work in progress. But I think it's totally cool to see the beauty of transformation in any way...

The purpose of this cabinet display will be to hold some of my whimsy-ELF- designs. I simply adore them! Their faces are completely made out of polymer clay (including the tiniest details I added with different sizes of needles). Other used materials are shiny colorful satin(s), natural feathers, pearls, tulle,vintage lace, etc...who knows what will appear to the very end of this project,haha!

I'll be also finishing these guys ( and the girls, why not??! ;p) within the next couple of days...Actually these little' Elf-ish' creatures remind me a lot (in spirit) of 'the Lost Boys' from the story about the Peter Pan & co. :)))) I absolutely enJOY each & every piece...and I hope you will too!

"Alone" Edgar Allan Poe's goth style skull earrings


From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life- was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

~*Edgar Allan Poe*~

These pair of a goth style earrings are actually the reminiscence to one of the greatest poets of our time, the mighty Edgar Allan Poe!

Polyresin skull beads with shiny Swarovski crystals set as the eyes symbolizes Poe himself. A special detail are felt Poe style mustache. 
Above the skulls you can see small metal diamond shaped beads with double infinity signs. 
The top of the earrings consist of black faceted glass beads, the spiral in a square beads and black wired plush, which combined represent Poe's dark visions. 
Just underneath the skulls are carefully placed small shiny blood red beads like the seed of creation and life power.

A very special part of these unique dangles are beautiful poetical rosette styled filigree star charms that are the connectors and symbols between the worlds. 
They also give a romantic note that shines through Edgar Allan Poe's timeless writings.

These pieces are perfect for your goth outfit, but not only! 
You can wear them whenever you feel mystic, inspired, or want to send the message about the poetry of life and death as a full circle of our existence...

'Peace In Our Time Or Lets Climb To The Electric Moon Babe' hand purse by WiLd PeArLy

“Keep your electric eye on me babe,

Put your ray gun to my head,

Press your space face close to mine, love.
Freak out in a moonage daydream ohhh yeah!
Freak out, far out, in out…alright!”
---David Bowie~* ("Moonage Daydream")

So, one day I received a custom request from one of my dear customers from Oregon. She asked me to design her a purse that will be featuring a piece of fabric she had in her stock for a while. The fabric is Alexander Henry’s (famous mod-pop hand peace-sign design)...the rest was left to me & my imagination...and this is what we got...

T-minus…10..9..8..7..6..5..4..3..2..1..we have ignition!':))) Blast off to the heavens above with this dazzling retro, cyber-punk hand purse made with the movement in the 60’s in mind, with a twist of mod-pop! From the first launch into outer space, to the peace and love movement, you can definitely recognize these qualities in this design along with that wild and ‘dandy-punk-ish’ look to add that extra flair! These two styles critique each other well and bring a whole new dimension to the “designer” purse category. This is the perfect piece for a true Bohemian who will never forget about the good old times of progress and peaceful revolution! This luxurious, yet super fun purse has an exterior that consists of a crushed/textured aluminum novelty pleather that is highlighted with matching tassel strands. It has front and back matching woven trimmed pockets for convenience that dawn the ever famous “Jolly Roger” skulls decorated with rhinestones, roses, and traces of glitter. These pockets close with matching metallic blue and red snap buttons. The handles are very chic and consist of high quality transparent acrylic with silver metal. The interior is very special and consists of two pockets. The center pocket is actually more like a separate, extendable compartment that is a mod-pop design made from Alexander Henry’s famous hand peace-sign fabric. 
The surrounding walls are perfectly matched with a retro polka dot cotton fabric…and completed with an additional open metallic silver pocket on the inside! The interior of these walls are well padded for extra firmness as well. 
The extra special feature of the purse is that you actually change it’s shape and dimensions! The sides are extendable, for that extra precious cargo, or you can close it off with the button /hoop to change the size and shape of the purse! How cool is that!? 

Other embellishments that this purse features are: blue hand painted butterflies with silver skulls, metallic silver rope trim, blood red and dark blue roses… And , finally, a lot of girls are going to be jealous at you wearing this attention grabber fulfilled with quality and wild boho-chic-style!"

Where The WiLd PeArL(s) are/ InTrO

A "natural pearl" is one that forms without any human intervention at all, in the wild, and is very rare. Many hundreds of pearl oysters or pearl mussels have to be gathered and opened, and thus killed, in order to find even one WiLd PeArL, and for many centuries that was the only way pearls were obtained. This was the main reason why pearls fetched such extraordinary prices in the past.
