Shadowbox Shrines...


I hope every one's year is off to a great start. As for mine, it has been quite tranquil and lovely so far. I have had some extra free time to dive into some special art projects, like my new Shadowbox Shrine Collection. I have had so much fun creating these little shadowbox pendants using old prayer cards, vintage postcards, pocket shrines, old buttons, butterfly wings and other elements taken from nature. I have also made them 3 dimensional, so these tiny dioramas  really come to life after I finished them. Here are some detailed views of these very special petite little shrines coming to my Etsy shop this evening....






....the above old locket was made with a million year old piece of hand carved mammoth's ivory and vintage rhinestones, and inside there is an extra surprise.














The surprise in the mammoth ivory locket?
It is filled with some sweet vintage pieces that pay homage to nature....



...and I have a couple of new pairs of earrings coming to my shop this evening also...





....and,Oh Happy Joy!!!!!
They have finally returned....


...I will be in pure Heaven tonight watching the new season. What a fantastic way to finish off a dreary, cold weekend!!!
 Be back soon with some new designs. Thanks for stopping by to visit!
