Unique Gifts

pill

I recently relocated from San Francisco to beautiful Ventura, California with my husband and two cats. We now live in an orchard and couldn’t be happier.

I’ve been sewing since age 7 (I’m 33 now!). In addition to home accessories, I do clothing alterations and make custom wedding gowns.

Personalized Heart Pillow $18.00

pfhttp://pillowfarmer.etsy.com

The heart is cut from red felt and customized with the initials of your choice in black felt. I add a white felt heart or a + sign (eg: B + R). This would make a swell Valentine gift or home accessory.

Think it would make the perfect ring pillow for your wedding? I can add strands of ribbon to the heart, no problem.

size: 7″ x 5 3/4″

Note: eco felt is made from recycled plastic bottles.

ft“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the disheveled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
~William Butler Yeats

I’m an eclectic collector, abstract artist, sculptor, photographer, writer and jewelry maker. I’m also wife to wonderful and sweet computer nerd.

In March of 2008, I was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with Congestive heart failure (CHF). The doctors didnt think I would make it.

One of my IV’s failed, and my right arm was pumped full of potassium, and I lost most of the use of my right arm and hand as a result.

I was released from the hospital on oxygen, and a week later my kidneys failed. After another lengthy stay in the hospital, I was finally released for good.

For a few months I cried day and night. I was an artist, I worked with my hands and Suddenly, I Couldn’t even cook for myself, let alone write my own name. Drawing or sculpting was impossible.

I’m not saying this for sympathy, only to give others a glimmer of hope. In the few short months since coming home, I’ve gotten a lot better. My heart is much healthier, and I’m slowly regaining the use of my right hand, although it is still mostly numb. Someday I hope to draw again, but until then, jewelry will just have to do.

For Friends or Lovers- Twin Message in a bottle Necklaces $27.00

ft1http://faeriedtreasures.etsy.com

A spin on traditional best friend necklaces, these two “Message in a bottle” pendants are filled fine iridescent glitter and a piece of scrolled paper, bearing this quote-

“He is not a lover who does not love forever”
~Euripedes

These bottles are tiny. 1/4 dram corked vials, only about 1.25″ tall, including the cork. Since they’re so small, only the word “Forever” is visible.

Each corked vial has a securely fastened silvertone eye pin embedded in the top, but the pendant is attached to the chain with a very thick silver tone oval jump ring. Also dangling from the top of the pendant is a small AB finish clear glass heart.

The necklace chain is antiqued silver tone in a very unisex chain link (the chain link may vary from those pictured, but will be very similar!). Not overly feminine, not overly masculine (perfect for you and your beau). Each chain is 20″ long.

Buy these necklaces and give one to your BFF (Best friend forever) or your significant other. Heck, you could even give one to your mom or dad, if you want to show them how much you love them!

This listing is for TWO (2) Pendants with chains, If you would like a single message in a bottle necklace, or more than two, or any number of them with whatever personalized message in them, convo me and we’ll set up a reserved listing for you! I’m more than happy to help!

As with all “Faeried Treasures” jewelry items, Both necklaces-“Forever” will come wrapped in tissue, tucked in individual gift boxes and wrapped with a ribbon and Faery poem. So you can have a gift for yourself, AND a gift for whoever you choose to give the second necklace to!

Pink Ruffles and Polka dot Playsuit $78.00

imhttp://imyourpresent.etsy.com

This playsuit is so cute! It has a really nice tailored fit. I made it out of light pink fabric and stretchy white with black polka dots fabric. The polka dot fabric was slightly thin so I double faced it (two layers). There is a zipper up the center back, elastic straps and pockets in the front sides. The bow is pinned on. I sewed in two huge layers of ruffles around the waist.

The whole thing is serged for durability and a professional finish. i recommend it as a size 4 or 6.
it measures-
bust-30″ lying flat, stretches to 36″
waist- 29″, stretches to 34″
hips- 38″ stretches to 44″

It would look great as is in warmer weather, or with black tights and a cardigan in colder weather!
