For Sale..

Apparently these are called fascinaters - not to be confused with the head gear! I originally made one for a baby, just to look at, not to handle as they do have some sharpish bits. When I put a photo of some more on the blog they got masses of re-pins on Pinterest. They're too time consuming to make to commission so I don't take orders for these but occasionally I'll make smaller items for fun.
So I finally made a couple available before Christmas. They are £50 each plus postage and packing (around £2 in the UK) If you are interested in them just e-mail me at the e-mail address on my profile page. The 3 tiered piece above is 27cm long x 6cm wide. The larger single cutter below is 10cm wide x 20cm long. Each also have a mini suspension chain. Vintage components are listed below.

Vintage pastry cutter/s
Vintage chandelier glass
Old mustard or salt spoon
Key from a Victorian school, London
Piece of old clay pipe from Thames River, London
Vintage French blue glass buttons from Portobello Road Market.
Various beads and buttons
Old metal bell
Coin (French centimes or Japanese yen)


  1. they are really, really gorgeous! love the pastry cutter and sliced up tin cans, genius!

  2. Hi Kathy - actually its not a can but a set of little cutters I found at a market recently. They're so sweet - I particularly like the tiny one because it's taller than it is wide.

  3. These are gorgeous - the second one in particular.

    OOH please let me know whenever you make some more! ;-) x

  4. hi! i teach at a crafting retreat and have several of the parts to make these. i would love to teach this to my group! it's beautiful! my question for you is "what is the easiest way to drill the holes in your main part holding the bobbles? did you drill or punch the holes?"
    i would love to hear from you! you are so talented! :)
