This piece has become my most favorite piece I have made to date! I created it using antique French carved rosary beads, antique mother of pearl worry beads, large antique carved sacred heart and the focal piece is this beautiful antique beveled glass covered lace holy card with a beautiful saint and cherubs. This piece was just listed in my Etsy shop and is definatly an heirloom piece to cherish for years to come!

Hi everyone! I thought since Halloween is my all time favorite time of year that I would post a few pictures of pieces that I have created in the spirit of Halloween :0 This first piece is a skull that I have covered with antique Victorian black beaded mourning trim. I hand sewed the little velvet green pillow it sits apon and has a dome glass piece that fits over the top. I also took a antique clock that no longer was working and painted it. I just thought these two pieces looked so good together as the glass encased skull sits ontop of the clock.

This is actually a piece that my mother (Gail Lackey) created for me :) She is one of the most talented creative people I know! She hand sculpted this tiny ghostie girl that now lays in an wooden coffin lined with antique velvet. My father-in-law actually handmade the tiny wooden coffin!

This piece is one of my favorites! I hand painted the shadowbox with black and white checkers, hand sewed the antique velvet curtains with metallic trim and lined the inside with lights. Below I added an antique Victorian "Our Darling" coffin plate surrounded by black flowers.

Here is another shadowbox I created. using a antique gesso framed box I added a skull and surrounded it with vintage flowers. This piece is aso lined with lights and looks so cool at night! Well thats all for now till next time :)
