Pierrot Moon earrings, NEW!

Pierrot Moon earrings, with tiny, blingy, peridot-coloured heart crystals on them. These charms measure about 2 cm long, by 1 1/2 cm wide. the ear wires are lead and nickel-free, "antique bronze-tone" metal. The entire earring dangles about 3 1/2 centimetres from the earlobe (a nice, presentable length).

 £5, plus applicable shipping; shipped only within the European Union (see my last entry, for the reason). Contact us through Facebook messenger, for purchase. Thank you for looking. :)

Memento Mori necklace, now available!

New pendant. Measures (approximately) 3 1/4 cm wide, by 2 1/2 cm long. Comes on a 46 cm "antique bronze-tone" neck chain. £5 plus applicable postage of your choice; delivering to the European Union, only (I had two sentimentally-valuable, time-consuming, hand-crafted Christmas ornaments go missing in the US Mail, last winter - I was gutted). Inquire by personal message, via Facebook. Thank you for visiting my art and craft blog. :)

Spirit Fox - brand new, today.

I've been doodling, on a rainy, Welsh afternoon. Here are the results.
I've been thinking about how downright-bleddy terrifying it is, to have my artwork public. Picture me, shaking in my size 3 espadrilles. That is all.

Elen's Fox

It has taken me several months to finish this piece, but I think it's as close to what I envisioned, as I can get --- at my current Photoshop skill level. There are at least 20 layers in this collage. 

Twistypix Graphics

This is a piece that I made for my friend's crafting venture. The main image is an altered photograph of her son, when he was small; I edited it to resemble a comic book page. She was quite happy with the results, as am I. I had never done a piece like this, before! It's fun to try out different styles of design.


Alternate version of "Vanity Muerta"....

An alternate version of my "Vanity Muerta," with an aged parchment background, and Flow Blue inset.

"You Are My Sunshine."

I made this piece with my husband in mind, back in February. I apologise for the numerous watermarks, but this is the sort of thing that gets ripped off and heavily-circulated on the internet, without any provenance! This is why I always watermark and sign my work.


"The Magic Seashell."

This piece is finally finished, after nearly two years. Here you go....."The Magic Seashell." 

There are at least 40 different layers in this piece, and it is crafted completely from Victorian public domain images.

Shameless plug for my favourite live band :)

This is some fangirl collage art I've done, for one of my favourite bands. They dig it so much, that they want to use it for print!

You can find Devils Answer here, on ReverbNation! If you like raw, edgy, raunchy and fun music, you'll love them as much as I do!

P.S. If you need graphics for your gigs, I'm your girl.

Sage Advice from Yours Truly...



Tinsel & Tarnish, for dark hearts everywhere....

My name is Jynxie. I've been told (by some credible and respectable people) that I have a knack for certain things, and that I should make a webpage for them - so I have. Here it is, with no pretence or promise.   

I make graphic collage/composition art, papercraft, scented candles, holiday ornaments, and more - but this blog will mainly focus upon my graphic artwork. I am a late bloomer, and self-taught, so my art is probably amateurish, at best, to haughty eyes. I make no apologies for being an ingenue, as we all start somewhere.

If you have happened here by way of a friend's recommendation, "croeso," and thank you for dropping in to my new home page. 

My original home page is at Tinsel & Tarnish, on Facebook, but it just isn't working out as planned. Many of my older projects are archived in photographic albums there; if you are curious as to my other skill sets, just click the link. You're also welcome to "like" the page, if you're so inclined; I still post there, but not so much, since the crummy algorithms aren't in the non-paying users' favour! 

I am an extremely private, reserved person, so this blogging about my art and life is a big step for me. I am a little scared, but I want to do this.

....annnnnd, here we go; we're live to the world....
