Beautiful Gothic Items from Etsy's Dark Side Team...

Why we LOVE blog giveaways...

Oooo....look what I won!

I entered a drawing hosted by Artist Halloween Queens, not expecting to win...but I did.  When I got home the other day there was a package waiting for me.
My prize was neatly wrapped in these wonderful "Halloween" tissue paper with the artist's card and a sweet little note too.

As I excitedly worked my way through the layers of tissue..
there he was, my Dracula Bat Ornie!  He was more spectacular than I expected. The details that Karen of Hope in the Heart of Darkness put in to the making of this fabulous Halloween ornament is remarkable.  She didn't miss a single stitch or fiber, just check out the loop on the top hat and the beads on the feet. 
This little guy measures an impressive 9" tall with his wing span of 8.5" wide.  Dracula is made from felt, satin, ribbons, beads and crystals for the eyes and buttons.  I love the fact she put in so much details that you can hang him upside down or right side up.
I had been checking him out for awhile before discovering her wonderful touch of her very own artistic tag (underneath his cape...I just love it).
I just can't seem to say enough about this awesome prize and all the workmanship that went in to him.  But doesn't he have the greatest face...LOL!
Thanks to all the wonderful artists and Karen for such a wonderful drawing and prize.  Be sure to stop by the Artistic Halloween Queens blog for there are many talented artists there and Karen's blog to see more of her wonderful work at Hope in the Heart of Darkness. She is a sculptor and 3-D artist with many different mediums, just amazing work.

Now I can't wait for Halloween...I think I'll hang him up for inspiration!

Bright blessings

THe MiGHtY RoaR MoNsTeR bOx

THe MiGHtY RoaR MoNsTeR bOx, originally uploaded by ametistagirl.
Whilst on safari, on the isle, a hunting we did go,
to catch the MiGHtY MoNsTer bOx, the fiercest that we know.

We hid beneath the tangled vines within the lions den
and waited there till it's return to capture it and then...

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the Lion slept that night
and as he did, from whence we hid, we gave him such a fright.

The net was thrown, the lion caught, he let out such roar.
The loudest thing we'd ever shook the jungle floor!

And so we have here, just for you, a box most proud and strong, to keep your lovely little treasures right where they belong.

The Art of Re-Enchanting...

As many of you already know, we specialize in polymer clay, with a focus on dark yet whimsical home decor, such as artistic apothecary bottles and MoNsTeR bOxes. But what you may not know is that most of our items are crafted from re-enchanted glass, wood and other materials.

Starbucks fans will recognize these bottles.
What is Re-Enchanted?
The Definition of Re-Enchanted goes something like this...
To Enchant—
en-chant [en-chant]
-verb (used with object)
1. To subject to magical influence; bewitch: fairy tales about witches who enchant handsome princes and beautiful maidens.
2. To delight to a high degree: Her gaiety and wit have enchanted us all.
3. To impart a magic quality or effect to.

re [ree]
-prefix (used in this case with a verb)
To re-do: Can I have a do over?
To do again
To reuse, and this case to Recycle.

Chambord anyone?

In short, we re-enchant the mundane and render it magical!
At Ametista you can choose from our ever expanding selection of artistic offerings
OR you can have us custom design a piece just for you!

 Vintage Jewelry Box circa 1960, now artistically re-enchanted.
