Gallery of Custom Works & Previously Sold Items
Over the years, I have crafted a number of custom creations, and some of my favorite pieces have found new homes. Since these are not available for purchase, I wanted to feature them in a sort of gallery. If any of these items inspire you to request a custom piece, please contact me and we can discuss.
The Natural Nook Custom 2-part hanging sign for a fellow hand-crafted business.
Striped Recipe card box Customer provided a stripe pattern which I replicated onto the box, adding the word "Recipes" to the front.
Pink Rose on Heart This wood piece came from a thirft store, and was one of my first pieces testing out the combination of watercolors with pyrography.
Custom Keychains These 2-sided wooden charms feature woodburning and pyrography, and were made custom as part of a pay-it-forward crafting campaign.
Candlestick Holders with Spirals Another thrift-store wood purchase, I burned various spirals and trim edges on this pair of candlestick holders.
Stationery Box Somewhere to store writing acourtraments, perfect for those keeping the lost art of handwriting letters alive.
Best Friends picture frame Simple, classic keepsake featuring the words "Best Friends" and burnt edging.
Runes w/ Storage Box A full set of Elder Futhark runes (1" diameter disks) with a small latching chest-like box with the runes spread out along all 4 sides and a triple moon and pentacle design on the lid.
Don't Tickle the Dragon Oval plaque featuring the quote "if you can't handle the heat, don't tickle the dragon" and a long, thin dragon across the middle.
LOVE stamp w/ watercolors This small rectangle plaque was perfect for a rendition of the classic LOVE stamp. I added my own touch with pastel watercolors.
Rainbow Lotus Om box These short wide boxes have a lot of wonderful blank space on top - this particular one was intended for storing crystals and reiki items.
Rindy's Cafe recipe card box Customized for a gift, this box features celestial symbols on the lid and various restaraunt-themed graphics around the sides, burned and painted with watercolors.
Celtic Cross I really enjoy the celtic knotwork designs with all of the overlapping and interlacing. This cross was a fun exercise in that work.
In Memory ornaments A custom order of multiple ornaments, honoring the memory of a family member who passed from childhood cancer. These are approximately 3" in diameter and the ribbon was painted with watercolors.
COEXIST plaque This design (and others like it) are often found on shirts and send a message that we can work together for a better world.
Manifestation boxes Inspired by the idea that we can write our desires on a paper and set them aside for the Universe to take control over, I created a series of boxes for holding those wishes and dreams.
Butterfly Angel Goddess An interesting and detailed design I really enjoyed working with, this spiral goddess body is surrounded by ornate butterfly wings and features a cluster of light above her head.
Kanji Happiness necklace Combining two of my crafting forms, I burned the charm for this necklace, then knotted the hemp with wooden beads and the charm to create a macramé necklace.
POW/MIA plaque This was an experience working with negative space and large solid burned areas. It features the design from the national Prisoners of War/Missing in Action flag.
Magnets Small pieces of art are sometimes better - these magents can still be detailed, but are faster for me to create and cheaper for you to buy as gifts.
Custom Altar boxes The customer ordered these unfinished boxes and had them sent to me for burning. I adorned the boxes with celtic knotwork, their names, and other symbols they requested.
Yin Yang Dragons Another highly-detailed design with lots of whispys and fine points. I really enjoyed the use of negative space here as well.
