Dark Beauty Magazine....

A little Thursday morning promo spot for a hauntingly beautiful new magazine that's coming out:


This is the premier issue of this beautifully dark, wonderfully photographed and gorgeously well put together magazine.  Go have a look and purchase the first issue.  Let's make it a success.

I'm also excited about it for another reason ~ I have an advertisement for my steampunk shop Imaginary Relics on page 16!  http://www.imaginaryrelics.artfire.com/

So, go have a look, buy yourself a copy and indulge in the dark delights within.

Peace, love and light.

Hatless Heads...

All heads should have hats upon them.  Everyone used to wear hats all the time.  Men, women and children.  Some of the ladies hats were, and still are, quite elaborate.

I have always had a bit of a hat fetish.  I think maybe I was born in the wrong era because I would love nothing better than to get up everyday and don a lovely hat and be on my way.

I guess that's why I love costumes and costuming so much.

So, combining my love for costume, hats, victoriana and over-decorated things, I have decided to start a line of mini top hats or fascinators as they're sometimes called.  Hence my Monday morning search for a wig head.

The search for a new head was successful and photos of my first hat were taken ~

Victorian Ladies' Hats

I'll be posting this lovely creation to my ArtFire shop ~ http://www.imaginaryrelics.artfire.com/ 
later on today or at the latest, tomorrow.

Back to the studio now to finish the next tribute to Victorian ostentatiosness.

Peace, love and light.

Monday, Monday, Monday...

Well here we are at the beginning of yet another week.  Where does the time go?

My mission for today (should I choose to accept it) is to find a wig head so that I may photograph my latest creations ~ decorated mini top hats.  Yes, another "company" has been hatched here at Troll Bridge Studio ~ Calliope McQuinn, Victorian Ladies' HatsLet's see how this one works out.

In case anyone is actually reading this besides myself and you are actually interested in what I do ~ here's the list:

 
This is where I sell my hand-beaded jewellry.

This is where I sell my steampunk art jewellry.

This is where I sell my artfully demented paper dolls.

So, onward I go with my search for a wig head for my little hats.
Happy Monday everyone!

It Only Takes One....

...one falling domino to start a chain reaction













...one helping hand to change the world




















 ...one moment in time to change everything















Will this be my moment?  Will I be that falling domino?

Whizzing Right Along...

Two years ago I set up this blog account and now I'm finally going to write something else.  I'm really moving at the speed of light!

Hopefully I'll manage to inform and entertain on a regular basis.  I'd like to share not only my art and jewellry with you but the artworks of others as well.  There's some great stuff out there just waiting to be seen.

Now that I've found my thinking cap, maybe I'll manage to actually put it on this time and it won't be another two years until I write again.

To Know is Nothing"

Original dimensional collage/assemblage made by me for the first 100sq ft show in London.

As far as I know, it's still floating around London somewhere.
