Alice of the Canon I

Alice in Wonderland is an Amoronia favorite. And it is so many people's favorite. The amazing artist whose Alice illustrations we use widely in making altered art and jewelry nowadays is John Tenniel (1820-1914); his wood engraved illustrations were included in the first print of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865).

Particularly I love the black and white version of the illustrations. So I sat and made two pairs of earrings...









They are cameo-ish in their concept, but instead of engraved the images are printed. I have a strong liking towards black and white prints, and I guess this explains my fascination with the new stamps for my shop, which I will show you in another post...
