This little feisty squirrel is King of his own fairytale land.
The original drawing I have done with pencil, pen and ink on an old book page that has some nice aging to it. I have been busy working on some fairy tale animals lately, in between a bit of gardening. Inspired by an old Robin Hood children's book I picked up at a rummage sale last week I worked at a few drawings.

I made a few Victorian inspired Ribbon Brooches with pretty Cameo Pendants of fairytale animal figures on them. I have sealed the print under resin and soldered the 1 inch by 1 inch charm with silver solder. Hung from chocolate brown sateen ribbon bow with a pin back. Looks so cute pinned to a neckline of a shirt or on a jacket. The size of this piece is 2 1/2 inches by 3 inches.
The new print and brooch are now listed in my shop.
