New Book Necklaces and a Contest‏

   Winner has been chosen for the book necklace,,,
Congratulations Jessica in the UK :-)

 Recently a friend sent me the May 2013 American Miniaturist that I had forgotten all about. It is packed full of artists and there wearable miniature art. I had donated a book necklace for a prize in that issue. I have not seen that issue yet so I will have to keep an eye out for it.. Below is a scan of my article,

 I thought I would go ahead and have my own giveaway for the new year. Here it is below..
The leather is very soft eel skin. All you have to do to win is leave a comment below or email me at The journal does open. It is blank inside so you can write something in it if you wanted to.

 Some of my other books available below.
You can see more of them here:

Curiosities and Butterflies

Curiosities and Butterflies
A sneak peek photo of my curiosity shop. Hope to have it finished soon.
This is the lower level

I will be offering some of my new creations of curiosities and specimens

in the coming weeks. Here is the first batch..


These little cases were created by me for my curiosity shop at first.

I have some other larger displays that I will blog about later.

They turned out just as I hoped. Kind of dusty and old looking.. LOL

A new batch of small buterfly domes that everyone keeps asking for.
They can be purchased on my butterfly link above.

Been thinking about making the book case above for a long time. 


  Above some larger domes.. Including a death head moth and a luna moth.

Miniature Wand Givaway

  Hello everyone.. Some new wands and staffs for you to see..
Most are hand carved. I have the scars to prove it:-) (with the dremmel does that count as hand carved?)
I will also be giving away one of the wands at the end of the month. Scroll down to the bottom of this post to find out how to enter the giveaway..

Sorry I have been so long since I posted to my blog. I was very deep in special orders. I seem to get really bogged down with orders at least a few times a year. I won't be taking any special orders till after December. I will be working on books, books, books.. Also the miniature shows I usually attend are coming up and then the holidays..

Anyway.. on to the wands and staffs.. They are all 1/12 scale. Many are made with sea glass and real gemstones..

Below is a group photo..
But you can see individual wands and staffs here:


Below is a wizard wand cabinet.

 Below a few closeups..


 My little Greit posing with one of the wands. the dollhouse scale really works well with these 3 1/2" real pukie dolls I think.

Below is the wand that I will give away at the end of the month (will announce the winner the beginning of September). real natural quartz crystal topped wand that I hand carved..
To enter all you have to do is send me an email at with your name and email address. . I will add your email address to my newsletter list if you are not already on it. If you don't want to be on my newsletter list just let me know in the email.

Rustic Potion Table

New Rustic Potion Table I have been wanting to show. Was supposed to just be an "Herb Bench"
But in the end I think it looks more someone is concocting potions. All the pots are hand sculpted by me. Including the Mortar and Pestle bowls.

 Above a few more of my handmade potion pots. 
You can see better photos of them here.

 Haven't made any scrolls in it seems like years!!
They can be purchased here:

Moving Celestial Orreries

Been practicing making moving orreries. Took me awhile to get a system down. But after a special order I was forced to learn:-) I liked how they turned out and have many new ideas to try now.
