Rusalka's Profile

About

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
BIO:
A Rusalka is a water spirit, a mermaid-like creature from Slavic lore, who is celebrated in poetry and song. I chose this name because I am inspired by the mystery and beauty of fairy tales and folk art and fascinated with stories of mythical sea creatures. If my heart were a little Russian lacquered box it would be decorated with mermaids, enchanted horses, magical forests, and scenes of the sea. There would be elaborate golden borders and silver stars. Inside you would find glittering beads, Czech glass buttons, Grecian coins, cameos, seahorse charms, scraps of green velvet and origami paper. This shop is a place to play around with the beautiful materials I've gathered, to bring together the things I love, the things that wash up on the shore of dreams.~
It is a new adventure. I hope you will enjoy…

The "Light Classical" Collection is my playful tribute to ancient Greek and Roman style, with a nod to the gods and goddesses of classical mythology. * Created Summer 2009. *

~*COPPELIA COLLECTION*~

The "Coppelia Collection" is a creative collaboration between Etsy sellers Natasha, of Her Flying Horses, and Elena, of Rusalka's Enchanted Wares. Our Victorian-inspired assortment of jewelry and accessories features copper and verdigris, pearly pinks and teal greens, dreamy tulle and romantic velvet. You may find ballerinas dancing with seahorses, or dragonflies mingling in magical rose gardens.

For months Natasha and I have been treasure-hunting, sharing ideas and inspirations, and swapping materials through the mail. We have each created items for our own shops, and have also embellished a couple of each other's pieces. We hope you will enjoy this "cross-pollination", and keep checking back (at both of our shops) for new listings. It has been wonderfully fun, and the ideas are still flowing!
