ROYAL BLUE VINTAGE Camera Flash Bulb Pendants Steampunk VERY fLaShY

These pendants turned out to be quite "flashy!" I am tempted to keep them for myself , but I have listed them on Etsy. They are large yet light weight. So, they could be worn as earrings too.

Through my Brokenness I am Healed- Breast Cancer Awareness


"Through my Brokenness I am Healed." This is very healing statement to make and so very true. There are many journeys that we must take in order to find ourselves and breast cancer surely is a journey that no one chooses to go on. But when she comes through this journey, with hope and prayers a woman's brokenness is healed and a newness of life begins.

This necklace is made from a sterling silver chain which I have imperfectly wired pink cats eye & Czechoslovakian glass beads at every 7th link to symbolize spirituality and Godliness. I used a sterling silver lobster claw for and enclosure. An unearthed tiny 1 1/2 doll part- from an 1800's doll factory in Germany- is then suspended with her "arms" reaching upward towards a sterling silver Hope circle. An antique pocket watch face is suspended, upside down, from the "angel."

This necklace is made with love and hope for all of those who's soul's are challenged by breast cancer.

Measurement of chain from end to end is approx. 20"
Measurement of angel including watch face is approx 5 3/4"

The Vanishing Queen pendant is made from an antique Pompeian vanishing cream sample tin. Great for those days when you want nothing more than to disappear until the dust settles.

Time to Mend Our Brokenness- Earrings & Necklace

I was inspired to make this necklace after watching Rev. Joseph Lowery's speech at President Obama's Inauguration, 1-20-2009. He stated that we needed to mend our brokenness and I was very moved by his words.

Prisoner of Love- Doing Time Necklace & Earrings

These necklace & earrings are for those of us who are thrown so deeply in love that there is no escape. We are helpless and must surrender.
This tiny 2" porcelain doll was excavated from the earth surrounding German doll factories dating back to the eighteen hundreds. They were bombed during the war but she has survived, a little broken but she still has something to offer. I crudely wrapped copper & brass wire around her and suspended a vintage watch face. I strung glass beads from Czechoslovakia, brass beads, shells and cultured pearls on a steal cable & then suspended three watch gears. The ends of the necklace are finished with more crudely wrapped copper wire and a copper toggle enclosure. Necklace is Titled, Signed, and numbered on back of watch face.
