Faeries, fairys, the fey, sidhe, angels with a sense of humor, whatever you call the winged creatures that live in our mythic tales and imaginations, the flittering fluttering creatures that some say are guides, they add whimsy to our lives.
More specifically in this case, Cat says of her “CoMe FlY wiTh mE” mixed media necklace: “I found the words first and I quickly realized I needed to make a fairy!”
Tis true that Cat trapped her fairy in ICE Resin, but don’t worry, fairies have a way of leaving their marks then flitting off to inspire the next person.
The rub-ons “floating” between layers of resin add a 3D look to the fairy looking out of a hobnail bezel where a pretty wire wrap holds her on the necklace for all the ooh and aah over.
Butterflys are bejeweled insects that morph from catterpillar to chrysalis to a wonder of nature. To the ancient Greeks the butterfly represented the human soul. To the Chinese and Japanese the butterfly means peace and happiness.
Whe she came across the vintage image she knew just what she would create.
Cat Kerr’s “I SEe YoU” necklace hangs from gossamer ribbons stitched together.
Lovely. May winged creatures grace your daydreams!
