This is a hand thrown earthenware bowl measuring 10 1/2 inches wide by 6 inches.

Crocheted Rose Brooch

This lovely rose brooch is a perfect statement piece: bold, unique and beautiful. The rose is crocheted from a lovely raspberry red 100% wool bulky yarn, embellished with dewdrops of hand beaded faux red pearl beads, and measures about 4” across. A frayed peridot linen leaf sets the rose off beautifully for that effortlessly chic look

Pouty Pug

This piece was full fused to give it a nice rounded top and rounded edges. The image was fused into the glass using our sepia decals (which can be ordered at: http://www.beaderydestash.etsy.com), it does not fade or scratch off.
