I bought this tall sun, moon, and stars hand stand and the classic glow in the dark constellation hand stand. Both are beautifully designed and very well crafted. Each is a work of art. I'm keeping the tall sun, moon, and stars and "reluctantly" parting with the classic constellation hand stand to gift it to a special preteen. I know she'll be thrilled. Extremely quick ship and beautifully and securely packaged. Very responsive seller. 10+ stars!!!

Love this hand! It will be perfect for my bracelet display for my jewelry booth and unbreakable (I broke all the other hands). And the little hand was a nice bonus. It arrived quickly and was very well wrapped. I would purchase from this Etsy shop again.

It's lovely, only wish I could afford a taller one for pendants. Great & speedy service.

I bought this colorful bag to use with my red flowered angel bag. This bag features an angel in, and amongst, reds, also. This will be used as my knitting accessory bag to hold my knitting tools. I'm sure it will draw attention from my knitting friends when they see it. The bag arrived quickly, will hold many tools, is well made, and nicely priced. It's so pretty!!

Give 'Em A HAND. . . Stand!
I am a painter who has illustrated 25 children's books, and a crafter who makes a unique fabric hand jewelry display I call a HAND-Stand.
When I was a kid there was a room in our basement where Dad tossed fabric samples from his interior design business. A huge pile of color and texture. I used to throw myself into the pile and lie very still, imagining myself in perfect camouflage, my skin having become one with those glorious fabrics.
These HAND-Stands came about many years later, after seeing wooden glove makers' hands, then inspired by a friend to try making one with fabric. I couldn't stop at one.
I've been making them for 23 years, using my own hand for the pattern. Each one is stitched on my 1950 Singer Featherweight, stuffed with polyfil, then weighted in the wrist to stand sturdy and delight!

My 16th Christmas Santa brought me my very own Singer Featherweight. Still stitches like a dream 53 years later.

Fingers are reinforced inside with bamboo for a sturdy display of earrings and rings. Lightweight pins & brooches are best on the palm.
Got heavy bracelets? On HAND-Stands they can be stacked like tires, the wrist slipped down inside them for a colorful look. Or place the HAND or CACTUS on a saucer to collect bracelets, post-earrings, and coins around its base. ***

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Yes. Happy to!
Additional fees may apply.
Hand dust HAND or CACTUS-Stand with a clean damp cloth or sponge.
Gift wrapping and packaging
FREE! Card included. Write greeting on checkout order form, 'note to seller.'
Wholesale, Consignment, Layaway availability
I do not Wholesale, Consign, or offer Layaway for my products. Each item is made individually by hand. Essentially one-of-a-kind (OOAK). They are labor intensive with no mass-production process involved.
Thanks very much for your interest.
Where do you get your hands?
I hand-make them myself. They are fabric soft sculptures, made one at a time, machine stitching fabrics together and filling fingers and palm with polyester fiberfil. The wrist is solid with a "weight tub" of pennies inside a sealed plastic container - to support the hand (or cactus), so it stands sturdy on a flat, level, stationary surface, like a desk, dresser, mantel, shelf, counter top or windowsill.
Will you use my own fabric?
Yes! I'm happy to use any cotton quilting-weight fabric you send. You pay for shipping it to me, I cut what I need to make the item(s), and return all remaining fabric to you along with your completed order.
