Elements for my .......
Victorian or Edwardian or Medieval or maybe Pre ~ Raphaelite Cuff Bracelet ~ not sure what style yet.
And then there are the bird houses.This one is a very old pattern my stepdad had from his father dating back to the forties era I believe. I envisioned a enchanted cottage in the wood and thought of incorporating the secret door using an old vintage art deco jewellery box.So many things could be hidden behind the secret door, just imagine. I also thought a magical cottage wouldn't do without having magical powers , wisteria hanging from the eaves and Amethyst just seemed to fit perfectly. I had found these semi precious rocks at the thrift store and knew someday they make great adornments for my work. The exterior of the cottage is made up of crystallized fossils which I gathered on my nature walks in the wild wood.The other smaller bird houses are made of fabric, cartons and bark.
Enchanted Cottage in the Wood Beyond the World
I forgot to take a pic of the open door........later
And so as you can see just from this little glimpse of my work that's waiting patiently to be completed I have enough to keep me busy for a very long time.
Until next time,
