Fabulous Faux

Have you found a pendant that would work with what you're creating - but because it's carved from Ivory, it's illegal to buy in the US? Or it's made from Carnelian, Garnet, Cinnabar, Coral or Jade and is just too expensive to make it feasible for the piece you're designing? Or you are eco-conscious and prefer to use alternatives to real Bone or Coral...

I think you'll love my line of pendants that I call "Fabulous Faux". These pendants are transformed using the same process I developed to alter the Bamboo Tiles and Skull Beads. My favorite is the Faux Garnet pendants - such a rich color that really mimics the colors of Garnet. Take a look at this Kuan Yin pendant in Faux Carnelian:

Faux Red Coral or Cinnabar Buddha on Lion Pendant -

Faux 'Aged' Ivory Pendant

Faux Green Jade Kuan Yin Pendant

Faux Blue Turquoise Round Dragon Chasing Pearl Pendant

All of these, plus more, are available in my Etsy shop.

Business Grows with More Colors!

I now have several places where you can buy my items - Etsy, Artfire, Dawanda and eBay (glassandmassagelady or my store, Audrey's Flotsam and Jetsam Trunk).

I now have 17 colors of Bamboo Tiles (only 16 are shown) - my newest color is Lavender - the most variety available ANYWHERE! Eleven colors are exclusive to my sites, since they are permanently altered using a process that I developed.

Using a similar process, I also have a variety of COLORED SKULL BEADS. Now, your skull creations can fit into a variety of other styles including Shabby Chic, Natural, Whimsical, Feminine, Holiday, Monochromatic and Asian:

  • Asian - use Red, Chile Pepper Red, White and Jade Green skulls give an Asian flare.

  • Shabby Chic - White, Baby Pink, Shabby Pink, Lavender, Lemon Sorbet Yellow, Iris Blue and Turquoise are the perfect colors.

  • Whimisical - vivid colors such as Electric Blue, Wintergreen, Grape Purple, White, Bubblegum, Salmon, Turquoise and Yellow lend a fun touch!

  • Natural - Cocoa Brown, Pumpkin, Chai Tan, Pecan Pie, Dark Chocolate, Jade and Khaki Tan give an earthy feel!

  • Monochromatic - Grape Purple, Lavender and Lilac; Bubblegum, Baby Pink and Shabby Pink; Dark Chocolate, Cocoa Brown, Pecan Pie, Khaki Tan and Chai Tan: Chile Pepper Red, Salmon and Pumpkin; Iris Blue and Vivid Blue
