I also try to research all the items offered here. I have done some oil acrylic paintings - which I do plan to offer some time in the future.
I am now working on some OOAK miniatures - pictures scenes & jewelry. Keep checking for the new additions."
While corresponding with Anna, I asked her what some of her favorite items were from her shop. Some of her responses were some of my favorite picks too! The Magic Lantern Glass Slide title "Ten Nights Bar Room" is a very unusual find. First I say it's unusual because of the artwork, second its from the late 1800's! Next is the Ketcham & McDougall 1940s metal Retractable Watch Chain pin pendant. The watch is by Caravelle - it is a wind up. It has a unique look to it, not like ordinary pocket watches. The Man in the Moon Marine pin is cool find! It features the moon with a sly smile on his face, a sleek sail boat & waves under the ship with two palm trees - and a brass Marines WWII shield on it. The detail on it is amazing. I had never seen one of these pins before now. Lastly, I have admired cameos my whole life. Loved the cameo jewelry my mother and grandmother wore. When I saw the 14k Cameo ring in Anna's shop, it made me smile. The ring features a carved Cameo that is light orange set in the center of Art Deco style design setting. A very beautiful classic piece of jewerly. Anna also has a other wonderful cameo pieces.
