All About Jilly and Her Stuff

Posts Tagged ‘cross stitch

Here we go again with another Monday.  SSSSiiiiiggggghhhh.

Nothing boring about my weekend though.  Hubby worked, the boy was away and Buck and I had 2 days of walking, crafting, crocheting, sleeping and listing.

For any of you sewers, quilters, fabric artists out there, I have just gone through all of my fabric and finally got them up in both my shops.  I have individual pieces, fat quarters and grab bags all ready for you.  I have also devised a “make your own bundle”  system.

You can ship up to 180 grams of fabric for shipping of $2.50 within Canada and $4.00 to the United States.  Yes, I will ship international but haven’t figured out the pricing yet.  Here is what I have –

There are some designer fabrics mixed in as well.  Lots of fun and variety.

Stop by and have a look!

About the Artisan in her own words:

Silverlight Jewelry – People have asked me what ‘soft gothic’ means.    I use the phrase to describe the kind of jewellery I make.   ‘Gothic’ means, among other things, ‘of or pertaining to a literary style characterised by gloom, the grotesque, and the supernatural’. I’ve also heard it defined as ‘characterised by a preoccupation with death’.Victorian Silver Key: black & silver bracelet

Azure Jewel necklace: bright blue vintage cabochon

Heraldic Shield earrings: enamelled lions & crowns

Gothic Shield necklace: black and silver pendant

I’m going for a softer, less gloomy but still introspective and thoughtful feel. Gothicism without the harshness, grotesqueness, or the preoccupation with death. A somewhat bohemian aesthetic, influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and the New Romantics, the neo-goths and the romantigoths.   A bohemian gothic. A romantic gothic. A soft, classy, elegant gothic.
Designs run from simple, relatively conservative pieces with just a hint of gothic charisma, so that they are suitable for wearing to work, to bold, unabashedly bohemian showstoppers that are only suitable for rock stars and those blessed people who are so secure in themselves that they can handle the gaping stares.   Designed for dreamers with day jobs who moonlight as rockstars.

Golden Honey earrings: cloisonne with gold bees

Green Forest: elfin green & copper earrings

Cloud earrings: tranquil peace jade with bronze

Copper Hearts earrings: green glass and old copper

Whiteleaf jewelry – In my jewellery-making, this translates to a love of semiprecious stones that look like what they are: lumps of beautiful rock, pulled out of the earth. I tend to use undyed, unfaceted stones, rather than stones that have been highly refined and cut (though those are beautiful too).
As a vegetarian with vegan sympathies, I don’t like to use real pearls, so I go out of my way to find irregularly shaped faux pearls that will imitate the stunning, organic beauty of freshwater pearls.
I also try to use imitation leather, rather than genuine leather, in consideration of those who would rather not wear animal skin. Where I do use real leather, it is from upholstery off-cuts or colour samples which would be thrown away if I did not turn them into something beautiful.   Whiteleaf Jewellery: earthy, eclectic adornments for nature lovers.

All About the Artisan in her own words:

I have always had the gift to create. I see new life in all things. I use a lot of found items and recreate them into something beautiful and new. I enjoy taking trash and making it into a new treasure.

My Christian faith and love of God are also a large part of inspiration for my creations. The events of 911 had a dramatic affect on me and have totally redirected my heart and life. God has worked in a big way in my life. When we open the door to our heart, God is just waiting to pour his Grace in!

My God-given gift of creativity, is for me, a way to share my heart with others through inspirations and scriptures which have touched me personally. God speaks through the ordinary more often than we take the time to see.  It is my goal to use my creative gift to touch your heart.

My work is inspired by Faith and the desire of making all things new!   I use upcycled, repurposed and new materials to create my inspirational signs, decor and door panel art.  Distressing and crackling the wood, gives my work a vintage-time worn look. Prints and inspirations are decoupaged and sealed with a clear coat onto the distressed wood and panels.Mom and Me Vintage Look Petite Wood Sign
