Announcement    Welcome to Maike's Marvels, home of wax and wire jewelry and encaustic collages.

I hand-wrap industrial strength wire into pendants, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and keychains. They are embellished with waxed paper or found objects to become one-of-a-kind collector pieces.

My inventory is a bit low on Etsy as I evaluate shopping carts, consign at local boutiques and pop-up around town. Contact me if you saw something at a recent pop-up and I may still have it in stock.

My encaustic photo collages started this journey and can adorn your desk, nightstand or walls.

Encaustic derives from the word ‘burn in’ and is a process of applying molten wax colors to a surface for the creation of images or decoration that began more than 2 millennia ago with Roman Egyptian wax portraits.

Encaustics should be cared for as you would for any fine art piece. Keep work out of any direct sunlight and extreme heat or cold. It takes at least 160 degrees to melt wax, so keep the art work out of cars for long duration in particular.

Thank you for browsing my shop and contact me if you have questions. You'll find my latest creations on Facebook before they are listed here: https://www.facebook.com/MaikesMarvels

Ik spreek Nederlands und spreche Deutsch.

About

Creating Marvels to adorn the home and the self

Maike's Marvels began as a dream many years ago, and became a reality at the end of 2010 when a hobby became the foundation of a new life.
Over the past year and a half, Maike's Marvels has evolved from a greeting card workshop to an encaustic painting studio. Maike creates collages incorporating photography, vintage papers and found objects to adorn walls and desks which have been shown in group exhibits around Chicagoland.
Inspired by a Wax and Wire workshop, Maike recently added the Maraviglia line (Marvels in Italian) to create lightweight yet durable pendants and necklaces made from wire and waxed papers.
