While searching for a knitting pattern online the owner of this shop "the Woodland Sprite" discovered the site Etsy. In order to purchase items from the shops on etsy it was necessary to create a user page and sign in ID, so she signed in using the ID theseanymph. After purchasing the knitting pattern, her page went unused for quite some time. However, one day she decided to create a little shop based on one of her passions, upcycling! And so the little shop "the Sea Nymph" was born and she posted a few items on her page. She started the shop in her spare time and it has been her hobby making usable items from disposables.
Unfortunately, I didn't have a suitable receptacle to show this beautiful water candle holder to its full advantage. Even so, it looks great placed upon the mantlepiece.
It is a clever concept, as it was made from upcycled plastic (PET) litre bottles. It is versatile and can be used again and again.
Later she started a second shop for items that weren’t “sea” inspired and she named the new shop "The Woodland Sprite." Both shops are devoted to the art of upcycling and repurposing.
The artist is a U.S. Navy veteran, who has a B.S. in Interior Design, and she has applied her creativity to disposables and the Art of Upcycling. She hopes her designs will provide inspiration to others who also believe in conserving our natural world.
The votive is truly beautiful, and gives off a rosy pink glow. I absolutely adore it!
