I ask you... Could there be a more perfect tea accessory in the whole wide world? I think not!
My new favorite necklace, fresh from my studio! I actually started this one a long, long time ago. It was one of those pieces that I would work on for a little while, then put down. Then work on again, and put down. I was actually almost finished with it, but something else caught my fancy and I put it away again. I was reminded of it when I started watching "True Detective" on HBO. The necklace sort of reminds me of antlers, and antlers play a prominent, yet icky role in the show. Then I thought no ones else is going to see antlers in this necklace. So I posted a process picture of it on instagram and my facebook page and what did everyone comment on .... yep that's right you guessed it ANTLERS. In any case I finished it up, and it's my new favorite necklace now.
I have seriously fallen in love with these tea cups. So of course I'm day dreaming about the Steampunk Nemo-esk outfit I would wear to a 20,000 leagues under the sea tea party that these would be used at. Aren't they just simply AMAZING!
Tonight I am trying to finish up this little beauty. It's an elegant little steampunk tiara made out of small clock hands. I have painted it a yummy warm distressed gold color. The original idea from this little tiara came from pictures I was looking at of Big Ben in London. I had the pleasure of seeing it several times as a child and always loved the gold filigree work on the face of it. With all those lovely images running around my head my hands got to work and made this. A tiara perfect for afternoon tea.
Isn't this just the most lovely hat or fascinator you have ever seen! It's from a site called bhldn.com. It's a wedding website, but really this fascinator has to be worn to a tea party. So pretty!
Here is my inspiration for the day an lovely print by Brian Kesinger entitled Green Tea. It has such a yummy steampunk cyber geisha feel to it I just love it!
I started this headband SUCH a long time ago. Probably two years ago. I knew exactly how I wanted the shape to look. It needed to be like a 1940's side sitting feather hat, but very burlesque in feel. The problem was I didn't quite know how to move forward with it. Every couple of months I would pick it up again. Look at it, love the shape, try it on, think about it for a little while more. Then put it back in it's little drawer to be worked on at a later date. I do this with a lot of projects that I just can't seem to get the right inspiration to complete the look I envision in my head. Almost like I'm waiting for a little imp to skip through my workspace and bonk me on the head with an epiphany. Well, no sign of the imp he must have been busy elsewhere. But then something amazing happened. I needed to make a Christmas gift for a dear friend of mine and the image of her wearing the headband Popped into my head. From that moment forward It's construction was a mystery to me no more. And I must say Nacreous Alchemy looks just as fetching in it as I imagined.
I am completely in love with this little guy. He is just so determined I can imagine a hundred little quests he must be on to make him convert an elegant tea pot into a vehicle for his adventures. It's made by the amazing genius of Grafton Pottery.
