Hayley in Wonderland Celebrating her 21st Birthday

Marleyanne requested a custom Alice in Wonderland to celebrate her daughter, Hayley’s 21st Birthday!!  What a special lady and a treat for me to design this one of a kind, unique custom crown.  I truly enjoyed coloring, creating and adding exceptional details.  I got lost in the rabbit hole in my own creativity!! 

I love the greens and tinting all the images with glitter, paints and embellishments!

  This is the perfect crown to wear out on the town, wandering through gardens or slipping into the rabbit hole.

Walking through a garden of beautiful delights

Inspired by a garden of earthy delights I created this art paper crown to express my inspirations and the shoes to walk among the garden of creation.

Wouldn’t Alice look fantastic wandering around the garden with her beautiful crown, chasing her white rabbit?!

The Crown can be purchased on my Etsy site.  http://www.VisionsofVenus.etsy.com

My art shoes are altered with various fabric and paper flowers, ribbons, butterflies, acrylic paint, gold leaf paper and embellishments.  I love the kitten heels!  Of course, I would wear the crown and the shoes as I walk through any magical garden

Artisan Jewelry for Charity Events

I recently attended the Mission of San Luis Rey, Heritage Ball in which I ask to donate my Black/White Crown and Cultured Pearl Set for raising funds for the Mission.  I was pleasantly surprised to have my items be part of a enchanted evening and bought by Patrons of the Mission.

I wore my “Black Roses” Necklace, for sale on  Jewels of Etsy, made of Black Spinal semi precious stones, Red Garnets, Cultured Pearls and Swarvokski crystals. Both of these events were wonderful.  Funds were raised for good causes and I was especially in awe after attending the Issa Foundation Charity Event, in which Art Barter, Datron Communications, donated an additional $115,000.00 towards Oceanside, Vista, San Clemente, Temecula Boys and Girls Club, Casa De Amparo, Oceanside, Moonlight Cultural Foundation and North County Solutions for Change.


Black Roses


I was moved to tears as I have worked with many of these organizations and knew the needs were very much appreciated.!!  As a board member of the Moonlight Cultural Foundation, I was honored to know Mr. Barter  and be at this event.
