Art In Wax : Encaustic Art By Hazel Rayfield

Chocolate Box Miniature Original Art Cottage Paintings :: Posted by: Hazel on November 26th, 2017

Chocolate Box Art

Pretty Landscapes with a Traditional Feel

Sometimes a traditional or pretty scene of landscape catches your eye and you think, arrrrhh that’s like a picture from a chocolate box. But then maybe I’m showing my age !!

I just googles it and ….

And wiki tells me ……

Chocolate box art originally referred literally to decorations on chocolate boxes. Over the years, however, the terminology has changed; it is now applied broadly as an often pejorative term to describe paintings and designs that are overly idealistic and sentimental.

Christmas Shopping handmade arts and crafts :: Posted by: Hazel on November 8th, 2014

Arts and Craft @ Christmas

Its that time of year again, Christmas is coming and there are lots of Arts and Crafts fairs, Christmas Market and Handmade events for us to attend in venues across the country. Many church halls, events centres, country house hotels see a varied mix of Artisans and Crafters setting up stalls and stands, bringing out the bunting and tempting us with lots of unique goodies for us to buy as christmas gifts or treats for ourselves in the run up to Christmas.

Art In Wax will be at a couple of miniature fairs in the run up to Christmas but for a easy way to buy your gifts why not shop online…….

From wall art, mounted ready to frame to smaller pieces that sit on a mini easel or shelf, with no need to frame and no need for lots of wall space to, of course, my range of miniature paintings ideal for dolls houses but also very collectible as miniature art works. Art In Wax has something for everyone …..

Where to shop for Art In Wax

There are some wonderful shops online selling handmade arts and crafts.

Outlets where people buy direct from the artisan such as UK based Folksy and US based Etsy ( I have stores on both) are very popular.

As well as selling I also shop online and have bought some wonderful and unique gifts for friends and family….. and for myself naturally !!

I can’t mention them all but Gerda Bags on Etsy is one of my favourites as is Flamehaired Jewellery Folksy shop.

I am also part of the art community on folksy where there are many artists painting in many styles and mediums, I will be asking then if they would like to contribute to this blog so watch out in the comments for links to other artists and crafts shops too.

Flame Haired Jewellery Designs :: Posted by: Hazel on February 11th, 2014

Original design handmade jewellery By Flame Haired Jewellery Designs

I thought it might be fun to do a blog post to showcase an artisan friend of mine.

I met Hazel Brant via the UK “Modern British Crafts” arts and crafts shopping outlet Folksy.
braclet - handmade by flame haired jewellery
Hazel and I don’t just share the same name but also a passion for art and beautiful things.

Hazel is a jewellery designer with a unique style, creating beautiful pieces of original design handmade jewellery, from Charm bracelets and necklaces to earrings and bag charms each piece is handmade and many pieces co-ordinate to make lovely sets.

Her shop is called : Flame Haired Jewellery Designs

These are direct quotes from her shop profile ……..

I love to make jewellery, using mostly crystal glass and semi-precious stones. I have varied tastes, resulting in a diversity of designs.

I am inspired by nature, and also love Gothic and quirky styles, so you never know what you might find!.

I love doing commissions, and would be more than happy to make a bespoke item to your style and colour of choice from my huge collection of beads and findings.

I own several pieces of Flame haired jewellery and have also given them as gifts, they are beautiful pieces, I even had a commission made in a bee theme, which you can see at the top of this post – well it had to be really as my passion is for painting in beeswax ……..

These are just a few of the pieces currently in store at Flame Haired Jewellery Designs.


The examples show a very small selection of the varied pieces designed by Hazel, from the Copper Hematite Flower Charm Bracelet in a Victorian elegance of steampunk style, to the Valentine Heart and Peach Crystal pieces and the Dragon Amethyst Bracelet and bag charm to the Unisex Wolf Head Hematite Bracelets.
