Take Courage! Labradorite Baby Sea Turtles on Agat by Secretvixen
Take Courage! Labradorite Baby Sea Turtles on Agat

Hi :)

Truth be told, I had ordered these some labradorite cabochons with the intention of making something specific with it and when they arrived and were smaller than I calculated, the idea of creating baby sea turtles came to mind where their shells would be the jewel. I just love the way it turned out.

As the title mentioned, I named this necklace 'Take Courage" if anyone knows a bit about the challenges, predators and travels that await those precious little critters, it's easy to see why the title suits this piece.

This is a great gift for that special turtle fanatic in your life, great for new mothers or a baby shower gift too :)

The baby sea turtles are about 10 mm long each, they are entirely hand sculpted around genuine labradorite cabochons. They are highly detailed with skin texture and several washes of paint to add depth to them. I painted them a navy blue/black color since this is the color they have when they first hatch out of their eggs :) I then glazed them to give them a wet look.

The labradorite stones have a gorgeous hue to them, almost like a oil spill in a puddle of water, very pretty from any angle you look at them :)

What makes this piece super cute is the fact that the turtles are waddling towards the ocean waves, you can see little flipper prints in the sand beneath them, I even added real beach sand on the bottom and on some of the turtle flippers. Not to worry, the sand will not fall off or make a mess, everything has been secured down using strong adhesives.

At the very top of this miniature scenery are the ocean waves calling out to the tiny turtles. I've added texture and holes to simulate the frothiness the water makes when it hits the beach.

The background is a beautiful greenish agate stone that measures about 3'', not too big, not too small.

The pendant is strung in the middle of a 20'' silver plated, cable style chain with a spring ring closure.

Along the chain you will find some genuine Swarovski crystals in assorted sizes in a beautiful light green color for added sparkle to this already special piece.

This item comes in a pretty gift box and is bubble wrapped for extra precaution.

The Nightmare Before Christmas French Manie :) by Secretvixen
The Nightmare Before Christmas French Manie :)
Just sharing my nail art with you guys. I saw a post on the internet so this is not my original idea although I did tweak the original design and made mine into a french manicure instead :) For someone who is a righty, I think I did pretty darn good for my right hand ^^

Sacred Devotion by Secretvixen
Sacred Devotion

Hi :)

This piece was actually inspired from vintage style heart/flame tattoos which as most of us know is derived from religious pictures throughout time which is why I suitably named it "Sacred Devotion" :)

Inside the glass bottle (measuring 40 mm tall) is a tiny hand sculpted sacred heart with a swirl of orange/yellow/red flames coming out of the aorta. The heart is very tiny but super detailed, it's about 5 mm tall. I also added some vintage style gold flakes inside for a pop of complimentary color and sparkle.

The contents of the bottle are permanently sealed inside with a cork and sealant.

Sculpted around the bottle in a upright position are a pair of white angel wings, they are hand sculpted without any molds used. I made them look a bit weathered by adding some washes of black to give them more depth.

The wings have been glazed to protect the paint. They have also been solidly glued down to the bottle surface with jewelry glue.

Above the bottle is a single Swarovski crystal in a beautiful lilac (with hints of blue) and a coat of iridescence on top (think oil spill in a puddle of water) very pretty!

The pendant is hanging from a 24'' cable style, silver plated chain with a spring ring closure with a second ring at 18'' should you wish to hang it higher up around your neck.

This item comes in a gift box and is bubble wrapped for extra shipping precautions.

Eternal Flame Earrings by Secretvixen
Eternal Flame Earrings

Hi :)

These earrings were actually inspired from vintage style heart/flame tattoos which as most of us know is derived from religious pictures throughout time.

The earrings are composed of a hand sculpted heart with a swirl of orange/yellow/red flames coming out of the aorta. The hearts are about 3/4'' across and 1'' tall. They have a coating of pearlized red pigment on them giving a beautiful glow and have been shaded in with a wash of black paint to add depth. I then added a coat of varnish to protect them.

Along the chain is a mix of genuine Swarovski crystals in a beautiful orange infused with red ( the smaller crystals ) while the larger crystal in the middle is a beautiful red color.

The total length of the earrings is about 3'' long, not too long and they are lightweight so you won't feel weighed down by them.

The earrings are set on silver plated wires, not to worry you will be receiving a new pair, the ones shown here are for my show and tell purposes only :)

This item comes in a pretty gift box and is bubble wrapped for extra precaution.

I work in healthcare, but my true passion is arts. I love doing paintings, drawing,murals, sculptures, crafts, jewelry making, nail art, makeup application contracts for special occasions, I've also been commissioned to do murals for restaurants and customers in the past.

I come from a family of four, I being the oldest and only girl. I'm blessed to have a great mom who's always encouraged me and pushed me to follow my dreams working in arts. I live with my boyfriend who is often my second eye and critique of my work, especially when it comes to his beloved vintage cartoons :P

I believe that making something by hand is more rewarding for me than to just go out and buy something that is mass produced, which is why all the things you will find in my shop were all made from scratch, it all started out as a lump of clay. Handmade things have character to them, a reflection of the artist's tastes and personality.

I have had( and still do!) the great pleasure of getting to know my customers and their special stories, from wanting to send one of my pieces to a secret crush, a bride- to -be looking for that special piece to go with her dress, to someone looking to cheer up their heartbroken friend.

I put a lot of time and effort into all my pieces just as if I was making them for myself, so you can be sure you're getting a quality product :)

Please come back and leave some feedback if you enjoy my art, I love to read how people are enjoying my pieces, it pushes me to create more new items for your pleasure :)
