Shimmering Dragonscale Ear Wings
WhimsicalPixies Ear Wings are diminutive wings designed to hook over the back of your ears, crafted in flexible plastic, wire and mouldable plastic. Painted with acrylics, then set with a varnish and a subtle dusting of glitter. They are worked start to finish by hand by me and are available in my Etsy shop here: www.WhimsicalPixies.etsy.com Whilst this set has already sold I am happy to repeat the design in a custom order for you in the colours of your whim.

This particular set of ear wings is built in my Hero-Batwing design: whimsicalpixies.deviantart.com…
It's worked in layers, starting with a black foundation with individual iridescent dragon scales delicately brushed in in shades of blue, green and violet. The spines and supporting structure are coloured with a shimmering red-gold.


I love doing custom orders!
Have a look through my Deviant Art galleries to see more of the wings and whimsical things I've been creating over the years.

Please respect my work as a professional. These pieces are the result of more than a decade of practise, sketching, tweaking techniques and experimenting with a variety of materials. All images and designs are copyrighted and not to be used as stock without my specific written consent.

The spines and supporting structure are coloured with a shimmering red-gold. The glitter is a subtle blend of dark neon blue and violet so it draws from the shimmering of the scales without detracting from them.

The lead up to Halloween tends to see a rush of orders for me. Several sets of ear wings have been bought or custom ordered over the last week so the creative space is a little crazy right now. The sketch of my nephew has had to be put on hold for a little while as I get on top of custom orders.

Some of the pieces I've been building have had a remarkable sense of magic about them.
I've also been getting myself into a healthier art habit, making drawing and making happen at bare minimum once a week, though usually every second day. It's good to feed the art habit, it helps to feed the soul. I bought some lovely tinted textured papers which I want to use for re-visiting a drawing style I explored some in my Degree in Visual Arts. It was over 10 years ago now, and I don't have good photos, but I remember enough to give me a start and it's fun to play with the calligraphic arcs again. I've taken to carrying a new small sketchbook with me, and playing with conte or a calligraphy pen or just sketching in graphite helps to wake up that way of seeing. It feels good, and maybe I'll have some saleable items after some more practise and play. Provided I get some time after this rush of orders of course.

Time to get into that art room I suppose. :)

I've been making wings and whimsical things for several years now, lucking upon my current technique through falling in love with a mad scientist.

My creative space is dominated by the chaos of perpetually working on several projects at once. From sewing to embroidery to wing making to painting to twisting willow to sketching to jewellery making to whatever piques my curiosity.

I live with my mad scientist, our two impish daughters and a pair of guinea pigs (who possibly suffer from identity crises)

I earned my Bachelor of Arts- Visual Arts from the Canberra School of Art, ANU, with a major in Sculpture, and minors in Ceramics and Life Drawing. Though I've always had an eye for visual balance and a love for making beautiful things. I also seem to have a bit of a green thumb :)

I adore making wings, and wearing them too. One delicious moment walking through the shops wearing a set of my wings resulted in a delicate little girl whispering to her mama, "Is she real?" to which her mama responded, "Of course she's real!" with a conspiratorial wink to me. My work wakes a sense of wonder in everyone, and there's something precious about seeing a be-winged toddler running around the house saying, "Zoom!" with her arms out straight behind, curls bouncing about all over the place.

I've always known of the bracelets with chains going to a ring on the finger as slave bracelets :)
