May this holiday season find you in good health and good cheer!
I’ve just added a (super) tiny new collection to the site, for any last minute shoppers. This is my last site update for 2023. The year is winding to a close, and I’m ready to tuck in for winter to rest and hibernate.
My last holiday shipping run will be Monday December 18th. That is the USPS recommended deadline for Christmas delivery for domestic US orders. Since it’s one week before Christmas, they do encourage priority mail.
Thanks so much for your support, and Happy Holidays to all!
It’s been a busy month, but I managed to finish off a few more handcrafted Halloween mask offerings! These are handmade wearable art pieces, hand crafted from my original designs; so you can trust that you’ll receive a unique, well made creation designed to make you look fabulous.

I hope you’ll enjoy these fantastical offerings. May they add a bit of magic to your Halloween celebration!
We’re starting to feel the first hints of fall here in western Washington! This is my favorite season ~ rich in color and scent, perfect temperatures, and (if you’re a gardener, like me) bountiful harvests.
We spent much of the summer traveling and working on home improvements. Life got super busy for a bit, but I’m settling back into the studio now. The changing season has me working on masks, costume accessories, and other autumnal creations.
The antlered stag mask shown here is a new variant on an old design, and I’m quite pleased with it. I hope that you will be too! There are many more costume creations in the works, as well as jewelry, hair accessories, and a few new surprises. Please check back often to see these new works as they’re added to the site!
I’m preparing for an upcoming business/pleasure trip, and I’d like some extra travel money. So here’s a sweet summer sale – hopefully, it’s a win-win for everyone! The terms are simple:

It’s a perfect occasion to share these throwback photos of beautiful Janna Prosvirina Fantasy Art with one of my Greenman masks. The Green Man is an ancient symbol of nature, and the cycle of rebirth and regrowth that begins anew each spring.
This mask features a layered design that allows you to wear it as one dramatic mask, or as a thematic pair of masks. Worn separately, the two layers play nicely as Green Man and May Queen, Green Man and Green Lady, or just a couple of nature spirits.
A little January hare, dreaming seeds for a Happy New Year.

My studio time was very limited this summer. My husband suffered a serious injury with a long and painful recovery time. Thankfully, he’s okay now. But my plate was very full while he was healing, and I just didn’t have time or energy for big projects. So I opted to finish up some of the UFO’s (AKA “Unfinished Objects”) down in my studio.
This little buckeye moth barrette is one example. I abandoned it several years back because I couldn’t find just the right stone. Then I found this lovely jasper in my current stash.
It was so satisfying to complete these older works! I worked on these bite sized projects in short bursts as time allowed. It cleared out my studio and my head, even when I wasn’t able to work much.
Someone recently asked me if I still do beadwork. The question surprised me a bit, because I feel like I have *always* done beadwork! (FWIW, I started beading in the 1980’s).
But a look at my social media made me realize that I haven’t shared any intricate beadwork for a while. Most of the jewelry that I made during the pandemic was either leather jewelry or simpler strung gemstone jewelry (like the layering necklaces shown here).
While I do enjoy making and wearing the simpler stuff, it made me realize how much I miss the slow, meditative process of bead weaving and bead embroidery. My studio time will be limited for the next few months … so perhaps I will use what little creative time I do have to circle back on my beadwork for a bit!
