New for 2012 are my Jar Fairies, each Fairy is suspended inside the Jar and comes with a lable describing how she was caught! These whimsical cuties have been a long time coming, as I used to sculpt fairies and place them in jars, and for a while now have wanted to create a similar style with paper based fairies, but knowing how to suspend them has always been tricky, as I did not want to stick them to the base, I wanted them to look as if they were fluttering in the jar, and for them to have movement.
So for the last few weeks I have been toying with different ways of placing them in the jar, before finally deciding on using acetae and clear cotton to suspend them from the lid.
The finished result is really pleasing, especially when you handle the jar and the little fairy inside flitters away, it just adds to the whimsy of the piece.... My kids love them! They look fab displayed on kitchen or dresser shelves amongst pretty china.
The first few will be availalbe on my website very soon, and they will also been available to view and buy at my first Fair this year on 31st March at the Kitsch and Stitch Event in Cranbrook, more details on this will be available soon. If you have any queries on my Fairy Jars please drop me a line.
