The History of the Royal Necklace




Of course this necklace is NOT a necklace worn a Princess or a Queen, it is a necklace that COULD be worn by a Princess. It is also my submission for this week's art challenge over at INSPIRATION AVENUE. This necklace has been handmade from an antique pocket watch case, vintage jewelry pieces, vintage watch parts, a vintage diary key & swaroski crystals and includes a velvet ribbon with clasp.

INSPIRATION AVENUE is hosting a CHARITY ART AUCTION to benefit ANGEL FACES, (young girls that have suffered extensive burns to their faces). This necklace will be one of the items I am donating to the CHARITY ART AUCTION beginning May 1 - May 7th to benefit all the girls at ANGELS FACES that deserve to be a PRINCESS!

I hope you will pop over to INSPIRATION AVENUE on MAY 1 -MAY 7th and place a bid for this most worthy auction. Bidding for this Royal Necklace will begin with $28.00.

Thanks for viewing my submission and be sure to mark your calenders for the auction.
We would love it if you posted the CHARITY ART AUCTION BADGE to your blog and help pass on the word!

MY ART SUBMISSION for the Charity Art Auction for Angel Faces is ESSIE.

ESSIE is dear to my heart. She is an Art Doll Assemblage made from Broken Pieces brought back to Life. She has so much meaning in my life and I am happy to offer her for such a wonderful charity that brings hope to young girls and helps to mend the broken pieces of their lives.

My name is Kim and I am the artist/creator of ESSIE. Essie has some very unique features. Her body is a vintage old music box that still winds and plays a beautiful clear tone of "Silent Night". I love this song anytime of year. It's the hush of that one night that brings gives us Hope. Essie has earned her silver angel wing and also her crown which you can see on the rare antique brass button clasp that was once on an antique coat.

Essie covets and cherishes her box or Vault of Broken Pieces and she saves them to bring new Life and Hope to other Art Dolls like her who may need spare parts. She also has a rare vintage brass pocket watch key wind on the original chain that hangs from her crown button clasp. This is a reminder for Essie to always "wind forward" focusing on all the good things to come.

Essie stands 5 1/2 inches tall. Her cherished box of Broken Pieces measures 3" tall, 3 1/4' long and 2 1/4" deep. The lid inside has an old watch spring, jewel and broken butterfly wing. The box is perfect for storing your own cherished broken pieces. The bottom of the box has letters that say:


THe Art Charity Auction will begin May 1st, and you will have to go to INSPIRATION AVENUE to see all the auction art submissions and place any bids there. Oh, and did I mention that shipping is all included in the bid price! The beginning bid on ESSIE will start at $75.00. I hope you will bid generously on her,the winning bidder will be bringing "New Life" to someone deserving and Hopeful at ANGEL FACES.

Mark your calenders, and be at the auction May 1-7. We would LOVE it if you would be so kind as to pass on this worthy auction on and feel free to post the Charity Art Auction Badge on your blog.

As a member of Inspiration Avenue, we are excited to present our SECOND Charity Art Auction for ANGEL FACES! This will be my first time to participate and I can't think of a better way to share my art and to bring hope to this amazing charity.

We have a special place in our hearts for the awesome work and unconditional love
that is given at Angel Faces to help adolescent girls who have been burned in disfiguring accidents.

We're excited do something that will assist Angel Faces to help these deserving girls, and we hope you will feel the same way. Plus, we'd love it if you fall in love with some of the beautiful original art pieces that are being offered in our auction!

Please check back to see all the art entries and bid generously because every penny goes to Angel Faces.
All shipping is paid by the artists themselves, so a winning bid
delivers the piece right to your door!

Angel Faces was featured on the front page of the San Diego Union Tribune in January 2011.
You can read the article HERE:

And please visit the Angel Faces website HERE:

You will be touched by the overwhelming struggle these girls
face daily and the strength they need to deal with it.
And be amazed by the Angel Faces staff who help them
cope with self esteem issues and daunting physical challenges.

The auction begins May 1, 2011
and goes until noon on May 7.

We hope you'll return on May 1 to look over the items up for bid
and find something you can't live without!!

(**Perhaps we'll have an early sneak peek at some of the items...
check back from time to time in the coming weeks!**)

If you would like to help us out, we'd be thrilled if you would spread the word and
post the auction button on your blog.
