For the Cross

The style of this artist could keep me enthralled for years.  Forthecrossjewelry creates items using her intuition and skill, resulting in a steampunk, neo-victorian, Renaissance feel.  Some items have a skull, others are a fabulously colored gemstone, and some have Alice and the Mad Hatter.  You never know what you'll find.  Every item, even if it uses the same format or beads, is done in such a way that it stands out from the rest and is absolutely gorgeous.  Each piece has it's own voice, and it's a beautiful one.  (images copyrighted to the artist)
the colors of this "Dragon Breath" ring caught my eye and lured me into her store.  The name helped too:)  I love the gold setting with those colors, and she has many more in this same shape with other amazing colors. 

How beautiful is this?  The Victorian, vintage feel is great, and that picture is so unique.  The little clam shell above it cinches the whole picture.  I never realized, until looking at her shop, just how attractive a gold setting can be.  I'm usually not a fan of warm colors, but I'm going to have to experiment more with them after this. 

In the same style as above, but with Alice in Wonderland!  You can't go wrong with that in a setting like this.  The original drawings lend themselves well to this, and the story does as well.  The little tea pots complete the pieces, and she does that so well - those little touches mean everything. 

These are just fun.  Happy, flowery skulls with roses :)

These are a great, versatile item, and she has them in all colors of the rainbow. Simple, sweet, and chic, these will go with anything this Spring.  I adore those bead caps too. 

For the quality and technical skill of the pieces, her prices are outstanding.  Click here to start shopping right now!
