Captured Fairy Jar

I am participating in some swaps at www.swap-bot.com this summer. A way to create and share my artwork with others. This was a Captured Creature Bottle/Jar Swap and the person I made it for liked to read Urban Romance Fantasy books. I knew absolutely nothing about them, so with a little research of her favorite authors and some image searches I came up with this! Everything was just junk I have collected, that most people throw away.
It was hard to photograph with the glass of an old mayo jar, other junk I used was onion netting, craft netting, old book pages and phrases, key, beads jewelry pieces feather and so on!!

Inside the flower an old faceted prism that was a ring, it is hard to see because it matches the flower perfectly.

The lady that recieved it said she loved it!
That makes me happy!!


  1. Oh my gosh - THAT is beautiful!!! I bet your swap buddy DOES love it!!!
