She ran with wilted roses
Heart-wrenchingly clutched in her hand
As each petal freed itself
It shrieked before it would land
And what was this before her?
but….a backtracking map!
Leading to worlds once explored,
Long before she knew what she had.
Feel the romantic freedom and magic as a “Victorian Gypsy.” The open road is you home, and adventure is your calling!

Hello sweet love – I speak to the sea,
It’s been a long time since we cordially met
Since your skyward tendrils dropped salt crystals upon my pale skin
Which by morn – would be kissed by the sun
But still at night – I liked you best
When the Moonflowers bloomed beautifully, yet deadly
And the scent swam through the air
Swooping down and cradling me like a lover
Where then – you proceeded to drop me into the velvet waters
The freedom seeps into your bones
And then, there forever – where loneliness keeps you company –
You will be an Offspring of the Sea…
Wild peppers growing in my grandparents pasture. Love the clash of red against the brilliant green and rustic old west wood fence.
Another design I’ve finished called “The Victorian Sea Gem.” Victorian Style is making a comeback everyone, and I must say I have always been partial to that era myself 😉
This piece is done in the tradition Victorian draped chain style, with the chain in a matalic coal color to accentuate the vivid color of the authentic seashell found by myself while beach combing.The shell is accompanied by two pearlized chandelier teardrops, and two authentic pieces of rounded green malachite. To enhance the wild sea-life feeling, the seashell has been connected to the chain by two authentic matalic coal colored barrel swivels and safety clamps (items used for attaching lures and bobbers to fishing line). What else would a Victorian Mermaid make her jewelry from? she’s gotta be resourceful!
This mermaid piece has created quite a stir…I have several orders in the making! Each piece is original and unique because I use authentic items from the sea. Each shell has it’s own story to tell! It is time consuming because I am very selective of the shells, and makings I use. I have to make sure this piece tells the story it was intended to, as art should!
all original pieces will be signed by the artist.
Hey everybody! so, I’ve had an instagram for awhile, but in the social media world I was mainly involved with my blog, but I’ve decided to dust the spiderwebs off of my instagram account and start updating my art there as well! Please follow me at thissideofthesea (of course, lol). I would be so happy if you would!
A recent design I had finished called “The Seashore Sweetheart.” This necklace combines the feminine nature as well as the wild adventuring side to us ladies. Complete with crab-claw clasp, linked mauve chain, pink faux pearls, pink shear bow, and a black bivalve seashell found by myself while beach combing. This is the authentic hand-crafted piece for any seafaring lady, beach lover, family Bar-B-Q by the pool socialite, or if you just think it’s cute and would like to wear it! Even if you’re as far from the shore as possible, all the more reason to bring a little of the sea-life into you’re life!
all originals are signed by the artist.
