Announcement   My name is Anne and I first made these pretty stockings for the girls on my Christmas gift list. Now I have several designs I can share with you.

I am certain these stockings are very much like the styles used in the world of fairy and elf haute couture. Unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, they were created during shared moments of inspiration from the best designers in Fairyland. Prettystocking pieces are gently put together using a wealth of fabrics, beads, crystals, ribbons, buttons and found materials from my treasure trove and from the stashes of the temperamental-but-generous fairy elite.

These stockings are meant to hold gifts of celebration. I'm an artist and graphic designer but in spare moments, I love the process of creating something unusual and beautiful. I hope those of you with a whimsical turn of mind, will be as happy using these stockings as I have been while making them. They will last for many years and will become part of your family's holiday tradition.

The world needs beautiful things. I make stockings that resemble the lovely fairy footware worn by (mostly) invisible creatures, and I sell them to hold precious gifts for the people who are dear to you. That seems worthwhile to me.

About

Starting Over

I'm a dreamer and a Fairy Believer, and my Christmas Stocking Venture, which began about a year ago, seems just the right kind of business to be in.

I'm in a wheelchair - the craft fairs and art shows which I once enjoyed are not available to me, I can't manage the display set-ups now. But Etsy is perfect as a sales venue and I so much like working in my shop.

The process begins in the summer when I pick up as many of the treasures I need, from yard sales and flea markets. This is so much fun and I love finding a use for items that are old and beauitiful and would have been discarded!

Some of my art stockings are very detailed and take weeks to make. There is inspiration everywhere... my shop is a jumble of items, each one filling my mind with ideas.

I don't mind how much time is needed, I work as long as necessary to achieve what I feel meets my standards. I'm making a product that is unusual and beautiful, one that others can share with the people they love. That's worth spending time on.

    I love every part of the process - as I move forward with this, I find myself making more and more of the elements I need... e.g., in the beginning I tried to buy some of the jewels, ribbons etc. that I need, but now I make almost everything myself.
