Fairy Jewelry?

You (my customers) said you are looking for fairy jewelry, around what price would you be willing to pay for the jewelry? I am asking this because I have seen some real quality pieces but they would of course be more expensive than the more costume type. I carry Selina Fenech's antique cameo pendants and these are gorgeous and high quality. I have also ordered cheaper necklaces by another company before and the lower quality shows. (the cameo images were not centered before they were glued and such.) I have discontinued those necklaces. Now, I am thinking about carrying Jessica Galbreth's Beautiful Vanities. These are high quality cameo style necklaces with hand beaded necklaces. Does this sound like something you would be interested in?

Here are the details about the Beautiful Vanities:

Welcome to our Beautiful Vanities beaded necklace gallery, home to our beautiful
fantasy, new age and fairy jewelry! Each piece is lovingly handcrafted by
the artist...making them truly unique! Here you'll find Jessica's handcrafted,
Swarovski crystalbeaded pendants, each boasting a large, porcelain
cameofeaturing one of her images! The beautiful beading is customcreated
to perfectly match the image. Jessica also hand signs the back of each
cameo, making them special keepsakes! We have two lengths available to suit most
sizing needs:16" Long: This is our most popular size, and will fall just at the
collar bone on most women.20" Long: This size is for those with larger necks, or
for those who wish to wear their necklace outside of sweaters, etc. From $39.95 -
(depending on length) Beautiful gift box included at no cost!

I appreciate your feedback! After all, I wouldn't be here without you, my customers!

David Delamare Tiles!

Porcelain Garden has come up with a NEW Product - Sculpted Impressions tiles. I have been sent a preview of what these great tiles will look like.
David Delamare's artwork is not available on multi-color ceramic tiles except for large tiles murals. So this is a chance for fans of his artwork to be able to display his art outside of print form.
Each of these tiles are 6x6 inches in size, they are available in 3 different colors and they feature an easel back. They would retail for $32.95.
Should I stock these at Enchanted Designs? I need your opinion on if you think these would be something you would like to purchase. Be honest!

See you at Faerie Con 2008!


Faericon brings magic of Faerieworlds, the West Coast’s premiere mythic music festival, to the East Coast. Array yourself in your most beautiful faerie finery, don your wings, gather your friends and family and cross the threshold! Once inside, you will find the largest gathering of faerie artists and authors in the world who look forward to meeting you, amazing, magical apparel, beautiful jewelry, mysterious masks, handmade crafts, fashion shows, performers, musicians, storytellers, exhibitions, panel and workshops.

And at night, the gates of Faerie open once more at the Good Faerie and Bad Faerie Masquerade Balls at the Famous Trocadero Theater, acclaimed last year as the astounding highlight of FaerieCon. Look deep into your heart: are you a Good Faerie or are you a Bad Faerie? Make your choice, create your costume, and dance the night away in the Magical Realm.

Last year, FaerieCon presented the US premiere performances by the acclaimed German bands, Qntal and Estampie, who delivered show stopping sets. This year, we present the US Premiere performances by the celebrated Dutch Celtic band, Omnia, the magical Spanish Faerie musician, Priscilla Hernandez and the return of Faerieworlds and Faeriecon headlining favorite, Woodland.
We believe that the revitalizing, healing and transforming spirit of faerie is alive and moving actively in our lives: faerie inspires and provokes, heals and reveals, illuminates and transcends. At FaerieCon, we invite you to enter the Realm as your magical self and release the beautiful, faerie spirit that shines inside of you!

Surrender to the glamour of faerie and join us!

In the words of internationally acclaimed faerie artist, Brian Froud:

“To dress as a faerie, donning wings, is to actively join in the dance, to be connected to creative spirit. Graceful or ecstatic dance; the radiant, rhythmic heartbeat; friendship; music; all these move easily across the boundaries, transcending language, race, and time. Such activities extend a joyful hand across the threshold. At Faerieworlds, we ring the bells of faerie invitation. The people come. More importantly, the faeries come too.”

Come and answer the call!

Pumpkin Pixie's & Fairies by Emma Marlow


Autumn Fairies Fall Pumpkin Fairy Art

Autumn Fairies, Fall Sprites and Playful Pumpkin Pixies

Autumn is my favorite season... the leaves start to change colors to burnt oranges, yellows and reds. The weather cools and I look forward to going to the pumpkin patch to find that perfect pumpkin. I light my hazelnut scented candles and get out all of my fall decorations. This autumn collection is great for changing out tired displays and giving a fresh look to any room during the crisp autumn months. We recommend displaying your artwork in collections rather than hanging only one piece of artwork by itself. This way it will make more of a statement.
Be sure to check out Enchanted Designs this season for your fall decorating needs!

Jennifer Nilsson Featured Artist Sept. 2008

About the Artist:

I am a mother of two great teen sons, the wife to the BEST hubby ever, the caregiver for our infant niece, the keeper of a menagerie of critters, and a child of God...the first and best creator of all!

I still live in the same small town I was raised in and although it has grown into a busy, noisy little place, I would have a hard time calling any other place home.

I love tang, pizza, puffin'corn...and every other 'not-so-healthy-snack' out there, but I'm working hard to change that. =)

I count my family and many friends among the sweetest blessings that God has ever given me!

And I credit several close artist friends for being a constant source of encouragement and for mentoring me along the way. Thank you Holly, Carmen, Lisa and Sara!

How it began:

My introduction to art and illustration came at an early age. As a young girl, summers were spent with my grandmother at her shop of handcrafted wonders in Eagles Mere, PA. An artist of portraits, landscapes, and needlepoint design, Gramma McHenry offered patient guidance and an abundance of encouragement, showing me that there was a magical world waiting in the mind of an artist and in the eye of the viewer and that talents were a God-given gift not to be wasted.

About the art:

The main bulk of my work is created with a mixture of watercolor, colored pencils and acrylics on either Stonehenge or Montval cold press. The paintings generally range in size from ACEO's (2.5"x3.5") to 8"x10", but I have worked larger and SMALLER.

Currently, on the drawing board, is a piece measuring 9"x21 1/8".

Mainly, my subjects fall into the fantasy realm...unicorns, dragons, fairies and mermaids and the beloved Mouser-kins™ , a character line that I have developed and am having great fun working with.

I also work as a freelance children 's illustrator, in various styles and mediums, for both print and online publications.

The only rule I like to follow when creating ANYTHING is that...the final piece...has to make someone SMILE!

Fairy Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party

I have came up with some ideas for those of you looking for a Fairy Inspired Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party.

I don't know how involved you want to get with this theme so here goes...

1. You can buy our fairy cards to use as her invitations to this party (we do take special orders).
2. A fairy print or poster could work as a guestbook. You can have everyone sign it as they arrive so she has a keepsake to frame of the event.
3. You can have everyone dress up like a fairy or ask them to dress up in a nice ball gown and reserve the fairy wings only for your daughter.
4. Make sure you have a nice fantasy or garden like backdrop for pictures.
5. If the sky is the limit, an evening carriage ride for guests and the birthday girl would be so fairytale like.
6. If the party is going to have male guests ask that they dress accordingly also, in suits or something nice.
7. For the cake you can have a tall one with tiers and a fairy figurine or a fairy ornament sitting on top.

If you are wanting something more casual...

1. You can have a fairy tea party. Use the ideas from 1 and 2 above.
2. Everyone can dress up in a skirt or dress and the birthday girl can wear fairy wings.
3. You can have the girls take turns painting each other's faces like a fairy with sparkles and such.
4. Another option is to have fairy temporary tattoos for them to use.
5. For the decorations think flowers and garden style.
6. They can even picnic on the floor if you have a nice blanket or something for them to sit on.

These are just some ideas for you to use. I actually did the casual fairy tea party for my girls birthday. It was a hit. (Of course my girls are much younger and they had everyone dress up like their favorite princess).

I hope this helps!
