Commissioned pieces

Having lots of time on my hands recently and being forced by circumstances to stay at home, I've been working on custom jewellery commissions recently.
Here are two examples of pieces I've made: the first one was for Kamarza, a gifted doll artist, depicting her quirky yet wonderful dolls' orphanage:

Second one went to Koroa, yet another tallented doll collector and artist, and it includes her own illustration:

Here's a photo by Koroa of her doll wearing it ♥ :

So, who's next? ^-^

New shop section: Rings

On the request of my friend I added rings to my jewellery collection, so you can head to the new section in my etsy shop to check them out - I think they came out really nice.

Of course, like all the other things, they can be customised with a photography or motif of your choice.

Four-legged girl pendant.

Ever felt worse because of being different than others?
I think that's how Josephene Myrtle Corbin might have felt in her childhood.
Born on May 12, 1868 in Lincoln County, Tennessee, she had not two, but four legs due to her body axis splitting while in early development. She had two pelvises, and each outer leg was paired with another, smaller inner leg.
She was soon a sensation throughout the country, and while touring with her family she managed to support the whole family with her earnings, which supposedly way exceeded the average income by that time.
According to the sources I've found, she grew up to be a beautiful woman, she has happily married by the age of 19, and raised five healthy children.*
An example, I daresay, that being different does not mean being worse, or does not necessarily bring misfortune.

Here's a pendant I made with an early picture of Josephene Myrtle Corbin - it's available in my etsy shop.

I love her striped socks and her Victorian-style shoes.

New bookmarks

Hello there,

How is your summertime passing?
I've added some new bookmarks to my etsy shop (visit it to view more), so that you can use them to mark pages on summer books you're reading in gardens and parks.
I hope you like them!
