I love seeing art-o-mat photos! Someone was nice enough to post this to the facebook page. I love seeing my jewelry out in the wild. Check out those awesome bike hairpins in the bottom row, second from left.

Featured Item of the Day

Banana Cufflinks
What's the perfect accessory for any formal outfit? Bananas! Cute, tasty and yellow bananas on a blue background make these the most original cuff links anyone has ever seen.

Rachel O's is proud to offer the ultimate in couture fabric covered button jewelry. I like to think of my fabric buttons as being teeny tiny canvases. I'm happy to share my art with you and the world.

Each cufflink measures approx .5 inch wide, and is firmly attached to a standard cufflink. Last 2 photos show a standard back of cufflink and size in relation to one cent (US). You will receive the pair shown in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of these cufflinks, your pair may vary slightly from the one shown, but will be equally awesome.

Don't see the design you want in cufflink form? Check out my earrings:

Featured Item of the Day

Faux Taxidermy Jackalope
Rachel O's Jackalopes are each a unique work of art. I crochet each one without a pattern so every sweet bunny face is different and has their own personality.

This jackalope has been stuffed and mounted to a wood plaque measuring approx 5x7 inches. There is a hole drilled in the back, so you can hang it with a single nail (not included).
Antlers are hand sculpted from polymer clay.

Accessories and ear insides have been firmly attached with glue, but this is an art object, not a toy.

Ruler is in inches and is not included with purchase.

Colors can appear differently on different monitors. I have done my best to represent the piece accurately. If you have any questions, I encourage you to ask before purchase.

NEW Jackalope

I've finished a herd of jackalope and put them up online. Each one is one of a kind and is looking for a new home! Are you ready to become a responsible jackalope owner? 
I introduced some new styles with this round. I love the black on black unicorn and the albino. I've also started painting the plaques in more interesting ways. 
UPDATE: The black on black unicorn is on his way to a new home!

I'm working on a batch of jackalope here in the studio this week. It's a flurry of tiny accessories, adorable little bunny faces and bits of yarn.
 I'm getting ready for the holiday show season and bulking up my online listings at the same time. You can never get ready too early. If the sun ever comes out, I will photograph the first round and get them listed.
