I'm Just Mad About Harry...Harry's Just Mad About Five and Dime Style...

Harry of Oscarcrow.etsy.com...just keeps me smiling:) I love his creations, his originality...and so enjoy seeing what he creates with my little ceramic treasures. The creation above... "is an elegant fantasy with a frozen charlotte that has been metal leafed and set on an art noveau frame. Golden wings and a glass pearl necklace with skeleton keys as connectors completes this art piece.The pendant is 4 inches wide and three inches high. The necklace is approximately 18 inches. This is a unique one of a kind composition. And an elegant accessory."

This  " pierced ,embossed brass disc is the stage for this little fairy made from an awesome frozen charlotte ( made by Moi...Wondrousstrange). She is mounted to a copper butterfly with blue sparkly wings and the pendant is suspended on a coil of square brass wire through which a 2mm sterling cable runs. The length of the chain is 18''. The diameter of the pendant is 1.75 ''  (tiny little Charotte from my shop...less than one inch and done in stoneware.)

Harry has branched out and found a great supply of vintage Charlotte's for sell from his shop at fantastic prices..."Frozen Charlotte's are small ceramic dolls from Germany.  These are vintage antiques that were discarded at the time of manufacture and buried in a dump. Recovered by archeological teams and offered for sale as either an interesting item or for jewelry and altered art. All have character flaws such as missing parts, feet,legs or hands." Mega charactor anyone?

  1. Well... I had to write Oscar Crow awhile back when I saw some of his art. Fantastic! Love it! He wrote back to me, and I found him to be so pleasant. I love to purchase from great artists, but it's especially nice when they're also genuinely nice people!
