Wear some Irish * Magic *

Whether you're Irish / it's St Patrick's Day or you just want to add some Irish magic to your outfit... these are my favourite addition thus far to my Fairytale Jewelry Collection.

Until now you haven't seen much mini magic jewelry on this site, or on my shop, but all that's about to change, as I am putting my foot on the gas, and will be bringing you all kinds of gorgeous magic to wear this year! Interested in miniature food jewelry instead? Find at my other store here.

The tiny, detailed little Leprechaun shoes on these rings are one inch scale (because unlike most fairies which you could fit on the palm of your hand, leprechauns can be the size of cats, with large feet like hobbits, supposedly!) So they fit the platform of these lovely bronze coloured (surgical steel) adjustable rings very well.

The Leprechaun Shoe Earrings are a different design - being quite sparkly and glam. The insides of the shoes are glittered and the outsides shimmer in all sorts of shades of green.

Available at my online store now.

My Workspace... Making Shoes...

St Patrick's Day is this weekend! It's the 17th of March. Not just a day for wearing green, eating Irish cuisine and drinking heavily... it's also meant to commemorate Saint Patrick (387-461 AD) and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. ;)

Well, here's a glimpse into my workspace today. It's all about little leprechaun shoes... tiny little shoes (handmade by myself in one inch scale) which I am making into jewelry in the form of earrings and rings, ready for St Patrick's Day. Ready, though a tad late since it's in a few days! Oh well, they'll be cute to wear anytime of year. :)

Stay tuned for more of my Fairytale Jewelry which will be available at my online shop.

Slugs and Snails

Well with soooo many requests for loose slugs & snails, I have finally decided to list a LIMITED RUN of them. I usually reserve them for fairs only, but if you haven't found my stand at a miniature fair yet and are keen to buy a miniature snail (or slug) from Pixie Dust Miniatures, then I suggest you visit my online store now, whilst these limited edition slimy characters are available!

So, a quick description... these are one inch scale handmade (without the use of molds) garden snails. Scroll through the images below and you will see a brown garden snail, white snail and a zebra snail. Then we have 2 kinds of MICRO snail. These are even smaller (almost half the size) which means they work in a one inch scale and a half inch scale miniature scene. I have micro snails in yellow and zebra.

All artisan handmade by myself!

I just want to thank everyone who took advantage of the 40% off coupon I ran for 24 hours yesterday! It was a huge success and I spent all morning packing up little gift boxes for America, Canada, Australia, Norway, Finland and the UK. I was thrilled so many of you jumped on it and hope you love the miniature packages you receive. They're going off in the post tomorrow and are currently sitting by the front door neatly (which is why I took a pic!)

On an unrelated topic, you might be interested to know that a new competition has just begun over at my other blog. It's quick and free to enter and if you like miniature food (as well as miniature magic) then you can enter for a chance to win a handmade miniature food item. The fun part is, if you win, you can choose the elaborate whimsical cake pictured below OR a mystery box prize.... everyone loves a mystery box prize! ;)

Fairytale and Wizardly Glassware

I've neglected my Pixie Dust blog a little of late! Been so busy making plans to return to America, working on my short film, creating for my other blog & shop, visiting Cancun, catching up with my family I hadn't seen much of the the entirety of 2011... so that's why! But... I'm back now and will be bringing all sorts of magic to the table this year...

People have often asked me for unusual glassware, so this is an amazing range of delicate, intricate hand-blown glass apothecary jars which I have sourced / commissioned, aged, changed and magic-ified. ;) Use them to fill your apothecaries and spellrooms. Available at my online shop momentarily.

Happy Birthday... to me!

"It's my party and I'll eat garden pests if I want to...."

Just celebrated my birthday on the 23rd February which is why my online shop was closed for a week. It was a biggy - just turned 30!!! Incidentally, take a look at my other birthday cake on my other blog here. :)
I had an amazing time in Cancun, Mexico, and just got back today. Wow... hours and hours of traveling but so, so worth it. It was so hot, I swam with sea turtles, snorkeled with colourful tropical fish in the Caribbean Sea, saw ancient Mayan temples, and stayed at the Ritz-Carlton (the hotel made a mistake and thus upgraded us from the Marriott hotel!! Lucky us).

So, I hope everyone else has had a good week. My shop is now back online and business has resumed as usual. :)

This is my creepy cake complete with slimy snail and witchy candles...

And this is me enjoying the heat the day we arrived at the hotel, on my balcony. :)
