"enchanted by the magic and function of masque as a conduit to the worlds of the gods and nature"
- Loreena McKennitt from The Mask and Mirror

This is the first of a series of adornments I am making which feature individually sculpted, one-of-a-kind Faery Mask pendants. These pendants are inspired by faery lore, the organic lines, shapes, and forms to be found in nature as well as by the figure of the Green Man/Green Woman. Clusters of shimmering beads in shades of plum, gold, violet, amber, and sienna hang like grapes on the vine from the bottom of the mask. Chain is elegantly draped between them. The mask itself is painted in a series of hues to compliment the beads and bring out the sculpted texture. A pearlescent silver tone accents the eye holes.

measuments • necklace is approximately 15" (including the width of the mask itself) in length and has a lobster clasp closure • the mask itself is apporoximately 2.25" wide by approximately 1" in length

materials • hand-sculpted and hand-painted polymer clay Faery Mask pendant; glass beads; genuine amethyst beads; sterling silver plated chain

Although this particular piece has been sold, there are numerous pieces still available for sale displayed in my DA gallery as well as at Phée Adornments.

By any chance have you seen Brian Froud's Faery Oracle? This mask reminds me so much of one of the cards (Sylvain, I think it was...). Breathtaking!

I've loved Froud's work for quite some time. My masks are not particularly inspired by his pieces, but he has definitely been an artistic influence overall.

I apologize, but at the moment I am not taking any custom orders. If and when I do take them again, I may consider recreating a piece (of course since all of my pieces are hand made they will never be exactly like the previous pieces). Thank you for your interest!
