Featured Artist - Jewelry by Lady Fatih

Happy Thursday,

As always it is my pleasure to share with you another wonderfully creative lady and talented artisan from the Handmade Artists site, and Forum.  Jewelry by Lady Faith


What Lady Faith has to say,

BIO:
When I was about 5 or 6 years old, my grandmother the manager of a ladies dress shop here in West Texas brought home a bag of broken jewelry for me to play dress up. I immediately began putting all kinds of things together and using safety pins to mend the broken necklaces. So began my jewelry making career. After a few necessary slowdowns and a couple of stops, I began my career again. I believe every woman should have pretty and fun jewelry. So I have designed and made this jewelry just for that woman. Some of the pieces are entirely handmade by me and are One of a Kind. Some are vintage pieces re-purposed for wear in today’s world. Visit and enjoy with me my journey of jewelry designing and making.

Her jewelry is really fun!  I am always impressed with another designer's take or vision on their pieces.  Beautiful and always unique, no two are ever alike.  Below are three of my favorite necklaces made by Lady Faith.

How cute is this?  The propeller is adorable.  Just right for understated Steam-punk fashions or a Flyboy's lady love.

The Flying Star

Product Details:  The Flying Star is a mixed metal pendant.  The star is hand forged, cut and textured in copper.  The industrial wheel is antiqued brass.  The industrial cog is antiqued silver toned metal.  The propeller is raw brass naturally oxidized.  The wheel, the cog and the propeller are riveted to the star.  The propeller turns, the cog turns and the wheel also turns.  The star is connected with a gun metal jump ring to a copper chain and the closure is a gun metal S hook and jump ring.  You will be the Flying Star with this pendant.  This moveable propeller will interest all that see it.  It is a fun piece for your work day or a fun evening out.  Good with dresses or jeans.
There is also a matching Propeller Ring.
This is fabulous, original, definitely One-of-A-Kind and perfect for SCA attendees, or medieval fashion fans.
