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. Necklace: intaglio dog, vintage metals and beads. Comes on our signature 24″ Tails of Joy chain with signature, branded hydrant. Charm itself is 2″ high x 1.5″ wide. With loops necklace hangs 3″ plus chain, which can be changed. Back is signed “Elayne Boosler ’16” because that is when I made them, hoping to sell them for rescue someday. They clip onto chain so you can unclip and hang them on anything you like.
