Elayne Boosler has kept her hands busy during quarantine. She has been a comedian traveling on the road for decades, and for decades she has collected beautiful and unique charms in all sorts of exotic places, hoping some day to have the time to make the jewelry she herself wanted to wear. She loves animals and the sea, so you will find a lot of dogs, mermaids, and divers, plus  fun surprises. Every piece she used in the jewelry is from her private collection of charms, jewelry findings, vintage pieces, vintage and rare Cracker Jack charms, and many one of a kind delights. She was/is mentored by the great folk artist Ramona Otto, and many of Elayne’s pieces were inspired by Ramona’s iconic “Watch Dogs”.

Victorian and Edwardian jewelers used to carve and paint subjects on the underside of crystals, then set the crystals into jewelry where the picture was in the bubble and protected. This was called “Intaglio”. Years ago in New York City I came upon an old shop, went in and started chatting with the storekeeper. She brought out a box of very old Intaglio dogs. They weren’t on glass, they were on a high grade type of resin, because they were meant to be turned into buttons, but never were. So I turned them into jewelry. They were so old the paint was cracking and I thought they were awesome. Weathered, distressed and unique. This is a big bold gorgeous necklace that opens. When closed, the openwork metal is a beautiful design with a hinge and catch. In the very middle is our beautiful Tails of Joy signature dog. When opened, there is your Intaglio dog. Locket is attached to big bold (but lightweight) chain. Locket hangs about 2.25″ long from loop. Diameter is 1.75″. Chain is 28″ long. Opened locket is 3.5″ across. Back of locket is beautiful as well, with a raised flower design.
