A Little Stranger

I created this fine silver necklace in homage to Dotty from the Animal Crossing video game series. Dotty was my best friend back in my original Holltown on the Gamecube. Handmade in .999 fine silver, Dotty is a tiny 30mm tall an strung on a dainty solid silver chain. Dangling from her hand is a recognizable Bell Bag from the game.

Now available to purchase in the A Little Stranger Shop! Each necklace is handmade to order in the A Little Stranger Studio and will take about two weeks to ship. Dotty comes packaged in a quality jewellery box, includes a polishing cloth to keep your new jewellery in top condition.

I accept commissions for custom silver jewellery, if you have an idea please get in touch;

Subscribers to my newsletter got a little sneak of this a couple of weeks ago, if you want to preview my available work before anyone else please subscribe to my monthly newsletter. I have created these three pieces for the Persona exhibition at the Sho gallery, which opens this Friday May 25th.

The Forest Dweller (Mixed media with faux fur)
Forest Dwellers are peaceful, kind creatures who balance the woodland energy. They live long, quiet, lives spending their days tending the landscape and keeping a watchful eye on the creatures of the forest, aided by the Tree Sprites, who tell them if anything is amiss with the harmony of their surroundings. These gentle beasts prefer to stay out of sight and are rarely seen by humans.

Tree Sprites (Mixed media)
Tree Sprites are playful, inquisitive little beings. They have been observed in a wide variety of breeds, though their purpose is always the same; to keep a watchful eye on the forest and assist the Forest Dwellers on maintaining the harmony of the landscape. Blending into their environment, listening out with their large ears and communicating what they have observed back to the Forest Dwellers. Tree Sprites are regarded fondly by the Forest Dwellers, who view them as both a friend and a pet.

Please email if you are interested in purchasing these pieces.

Stripey Legged Forest Dweller is my piece for the Dudebox launch party at Village Underground, London on May 10th.  He began life as a blank white 7.5″ dude, i sculpted his face, antlers, hands and feet from scratch using Fimo. I added extra long legs and poseable plush arms. His body is covered in a multi-tone faux fur and trrimmed to give a textured look.

Stripey Legged Forest Dweller is £180 and available to purchase through Dudebox – Sorry, he has been sold.

I created this fine silver bee ring from scratch as a custom order. It is an original design by A Little Stranger, handmade in .999 fine silver. This ring has been oxidized to give an aged look, I then polished it back to a high shine to bring out the tiny details.
