About

What do colorful painted scarves, jewelry and other pretty baubles have to do with ravens and crows, you ask? Well, all corvids (crows, raven, magpies and jays) have a reputation for picking up and hoarding shiny and pretty things! A flying packrat, if you will. And that is definitely me (except for the flying part).

Hello there! I'm Ravyncrow and I'm a compulsive crafter. Welcome to my shop! In this little corner of cyberspace, I hope to bring joy to others and sell some of my work to support my addiction to crafts. Plus, the more I sell, the more I can buy!

My necklaces and bracelets are nearly always strung on flexible, multi-strand steel wire, clear or color coated. Sterling silver, silver plate, gold plate, pewter and rolled gold (gold filled) are the metals I use most, with brass and copper on occasion. My work is made up of precious and semi-precious…

My necklaces and bracelets are nearly always strung on flexible, multi-strand steel wire, clear or color coated. Sterling silver, silver plate, gold plate, pewter and rolled gold (gold filled) are the metals I use most, with brass and copper on occasion. My work is made up of precious and semi-precious stones, cultured freshwater pearls, glass, bone, horn, ceramic, wood, crystal and acrylic beads, and occasionally "found" items. A lot of time goes into the designing and implementation, and much enjoyment is derived from making things "just right" for you.

I love all kinds of crafts, but primarily I paint scarves, crochet, and make jewelry. I'm also starting to work with metals, so you may see some of that in here eventually.

I also am drawn to medieval style clothing and jewelry, and anything involving animals. My love of nature comes out in my work on occasion, and I enjoy using natural materials, or images of leaves and animals when I create things.

At various times you may see things other than what I primarily list here, as I also make dreamcatchers, take photographs, and I paint both on rocks and on canvas. Handmade papers are another love of mine, but I've yet to actually DO anything with them! I have way too many hobbies!

If you'd like to see some of my past work, whether for inspiration or ideas for a customized piece of jewelry, please visit my website gallery: http://www.ravynscache.com.

I am always open to requests for customized items, or you can just convo me to say hi!
