Bijoux Jewelry!

Greetings Darklings!
Half of the fun I have doing Gallery Shows is being able to dress up in an "Artsy Fartzy" sort of way. I love anything different and unusual, and I am in love with vintage and antique jewelry. I enjoy having that "one of a kind" piece that no one else has seen before and would die to get their hands on! I LOVE this Reliquary Necklace!
I am blessed to have a talented and creative daughter, Kimberly, that makes such jewelry.
(My shameless family, she gives me great gifts)!
Kimberly has opened a new Etsy shop, "Madonna Enchanted" to sell her one of a kind jewels made from antique and vintage pieces.If you'd like to take a peek, Here is the link
Enchanting Necklaces and Decadant Diva Rings!!

All One of a Kind for the Bijoux in you!

And... did you think you'd get away without seeing the "Divine Ms "P"....Little Diva that she is!
Modeling a few of her favorite rings and things from the Madonna Enchanted shop.

Thanks for taking the time to look!!
Dark Blessings,
Gail...and the ever Decadant "Ms P"!

New Ghostie Wall Hanging

Mz "P", Princess Wee Wee, and their mystery guest, discuss the probability of the existance of a disembodied head.
Very deep stuff for such tiny minds! This is my new piece I just listed in my Etsy shop.
If you'd like to take a peek here is the link
"Little Lenore, separated from her body forever more"!
I created Lenore as a wall piece. Her ghostly head is attached to a vintage Florentine frame. The total piece measures 9"1/2 tall and 7 wide. I"ve used vintage mauve millinery flowers with vintage netting mixed with hand dyed gauzes and newer paper flowers. She wears a little ghostie hidden among the mixture of stuff in her tibetan lambswool hair.

Happy Hauntings!
Gail...Mz "P" and the large at heart, Princess Wee Wee

New Ghostie Ebay Listing!

I'm finally finished with my new Ghostie Lizzi Boredom (aka Lizzie Bordon). I've just listed her on ebay if you'd like to take a peek at her. . That should get you there , or type in Lackey in the search bar.

Lizzie is 12" tall, free standing. She's chopped the head off her little dolly, but you can reattach it as it is removable. Her Shroudly coat is made from a yummy bruised purple velvet with green fur at the collar. Handpainted eyes and my signature baby skull head on her lovely purple velvet bonnet.

Little Lizzi Boredom,a sweet girl it was said,
Mysterious though, why everyone around her,
seemed to turn up dead!
Happy Hauntings,

Miss Pennythistle, (aka Ms P) and her entourage of one, Princess WeeWee, discovered a disembodied head in the studio this morning, and as it so happened a nice little body that they could attach it to was found close by! Oh....those clever girls!! It's actually a new "ghostie" that I am working on, and hopefully will have her done this next week and up for sale if all goes well.
So keep watching!
Have a SpOOktaCular Day!
Gail ,Ms "P", and Princess WeeWee!

New Ghostie in my Etsy Shop!

This is little Millicent McGregor. She is one of my little Ghostie's or "Les Petits Morts" (little dead ones). I've just listed her in my Etsy shop if you'd like to take a peek!
She is pin-jointed at the arms and legs so they move. She has her very own headstone that is included with her name and date of her demise. Little Millicent is 8" tall from the tips of her painted shoes to the top of her head. Her hair is in little side buns, and she is Oh so sweet!

She's a bit different than my other ghosties being smaller and having painted stockings and shoes. I enjoyed doing the headstone for her, so I plan on doing a few more ghosties with them..always looking for something fun and different!
Hope you enjoy her!
Ghostly hugs,
(thanks Aude for the french lesson)!

Ghost Bride

I sculpted this figure over a year ago, and the poor dear stood unfinished until recently. I had made a removeable long blond wig for her (usually my hair is glued right on the head), but she seemed rather "normal and boring" to me, and so I was uninspired to finish her.Alas, she stood unattended on the counter. I passed her by every day on my way into the studio,stopping to fuss with the blonde tresses and trying different things, holding up different hair colors and different fabrics. Still they all seemed rather blahzay, and ho-hum.
Finally... feeling rather guilty for leaving her unfinished so long, I took her back to the studio stripped her of her pretty blonde tresses, gave her a "dark do", Vamped up her eye makeup (it was rather pale before), and added her tattered head dress, and Volia! Emerged her true identity, the "Ghost Bride"! Now I really love her!

Her neckpiece is a 17th century applique, Love that old tarnished look. Her gown was a remnant from and antique french ball gown. The only thing I don't care for is she needs a doll stand, which I really dislike, as most my dolls are free standing, and I feel the stand distracts from her other worldly-ness. I guess I'll have to create some unseen stand for her.
But, she went from one of those dolls that just didn't seem to go anywhere to being on of my favorites...and it only took under two years!!LOL!
Hope you enjoy her!
SpOOkTacularly Yours,

Down the Rabbit Hole and Back Again

I'm Late..I'm Late.. For a very important date..except it's been so long I can't remember what it was!...Oh was returning to posting on my blog! It's been months since I returned from Our Fabulous trip to France, and I'm afriad I have become somewhat lazy about getting back in the groove.
So many of you have been asking where I'm at, I decided it was time to return to the land of the living..So Voila.!!
First I am happy to say I have been invited again this year to participate in The World Ninygo Exhibition in Japan. I believe there was only one other artist from the US invited so needless to say I am extremely honored!
Since we've all been waiting on pins and needles for Tim Burtons Alice film (which is Fabulous by the way), I decided to do a dark version of Alice for my entry for the show. Combined with my facination for Victorian mourning customs, I created " Alice in Mourning for the White Rabbit" Ahh..Poor Monsieur Wabbit! Alas... he is in good hands!
As expected,there has been a sudden population explosion of Alice Dolls! They are taking over the planet!! It's been interesting to see the various takes on her creation.
As I have never been one to follow the trends, this will proobably be my last Alice for awhile..or.. maybe not.....It depends on how long I stay out of wonderland, and if I feel the need to return soon!
I hope you enjoy my little Alice!
Now I'm off on my next adventure!
I'll try not to stay away so long...thanks to all of you who have been kind enough to leave comments despite my dissapearance!!!
Have a SpOOktacular Day!
