Fairy Elven Jewelry, Ear Cuffs and Tiaras in Kansas
When I make jewelry I start with a story I want to tell...I delight in fanciful stories from literature, theater, music and love the process of conveying the enchantment from one medium to another.
When I make jewelry I start with a story I want to tell...I delight in fanciful stories from literature, theater, music and love the process of conveying the enchantment from one medium to another. My artistic career came about as a result of a restless need to do something with all the creative energy I was no longer using as my kids became more independent. I just suddenly had this consuming passion to create! My first ear cuffs were made at the request of my 89 year old grandmother who always did have an elegant bohochic sort of style. I come from a long line of ladies who just never bothered to get their ears pierced and designing ear adornments that we could wear with no piercings became a fun pastime. As I turned my hobby into a career, I continued to focus on unusual jewelry items like ear cuffs and expanded to include costume accessories such as tiaras, circlets and crowns. My style is described as Art Nouveau fairy tale and even the more traditional pieces (earrings, necklaces, etc) in my collections have a fanciful spark born from the magical places I see in my dreams.
All of my items are designed and built from scratch. I start with a spool of wire and bend, twist, weave and wrap it to the shape needed for the piece Im working on, adding beads, pearls and crystals as I go. My husband Ian is the official "circlet wizard" at Thyme2dream. He was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland and brings a Celtic flair to his designs. Every piece we sell is designed and individually handcrafted by one of the two of us.
