Fairy Godmother for Hire...sometimes you just need a little magic

I know you thought Fairy Godmothers only existed in Stories and Movies...well its just not so...

My Art is based on providing people with treasures they cannot find anywhere else.  I love creating Jewelry that can be safely and comfortably  worn by anyone... any time for any occasion. 
Bead work done one bead at a time   this is one of my newest designs  Fish in the Ocean bracelet

 All of my bead woven designs are created with no metal clasps, I use antique and vintage buttons , and are sewn with a very expensive high tech thread that allows me to confidently guarantee each and every piece I sell.  I mean what kind of Fairy Godmother would I be if my jewelry and Art fell Apart.  Prices are very reasonable Hair Clips starting at $10 , Earrings starting at $12.00 , Anklets and small bracelets starting at $20.00 and my beautiful one of a kind Beauty in a Broken Shell Necklaces start at $35.00.  Any item can be custom designed to your color preferences and themes.

Dog Collars are the latest addition to my offerings , I do bead woven pieces in fun , funky colors and designs , and can also add their names on the larger collars.   Again they are all guaranteed and are on cloth woven collars for comfort.  Dog Collars start at Very Small dog size for $24.00 , Medium dog $34.00 , Large Dog $44.00 and extra Large Dog $54.00 and Up , prices vary on the cost of the collar base . So sparkle your precious pup with what will soon be the latest rage ...

Bead Woven Earrings Stars and Benedict Squares

House Postcards prices start at $24.00
 I also do textile Art creating small art quilts and fabric postcards, and Pocket Shrines which are pocket sized devotional triptychs that are made using antique and vintage crosses, Catholic Medals , Scapulars and more.  There are ones that are Rosary cases and I have vintage rosaries I put in them, or I can create one just for your blessed piece.  Each and everyone is unique and will only and always sell for $20.00 each despite the intrinsic value of the medals and crosses used.  they are beautiful small devotionals always with you to give you the extra peace and comfort of your faith.  They are not all strictly Catholic in Nature I can create any denomination or non-denomination.  Pocket Shrines were originally created for traveling servicemen in the 1930's and 1940's.  My Grandmother Keck was a devout Catholic and taught me as much as she could about the faith.  I am also working on creating a series of Wall Shrines in Fabrics similiar to the beautiful Antique wood and glass shrines she had hanging in her home.  My faith is very important to me and I love when one of my little Pocket Shrines finds its way into someones life who needs it.

My Art Quilts and Fabric Postcards are pieces that allow me to paint with fabric , and use all of the tactile senses I was blessed with.  My favorite theme in these are houses and I love making funky little houses in bright colors and designs. But I also do any Dog, Cat , Bird or animal. Provide me with a photo of what you would like and I will convert it to a piece of art.  Again I can create these in Custom requests.  My fabric postcards style can be converted to Wedding Invitations , Birthday Invites and more.

 So if you are interested in having Art and Jewelry that is totally different and or have friends who cannot where jewelry because of Allergies, email me today and set them free from a boring accessory challenged lifestyle.  Email me at

Why I create (my new name Lorri Lee Glennon)

My photo
Hobbsville, North Carolina, United States
Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
