The Alchemist's Vessel -- Handmade Artist Shop

Alixandra Browning is the artist who designs and creates her art under the trade name -- The Alchemists Vessel.  She is a self taught artists with an eclectic taste in her designs.  She has a great love of nature and the outdoors where she gets many of her design ideas.

She and her work can be found on many venues including Facebook, Blogspot and Pinterest.

I find her work to be very interesting and her designs extremely unique.  She took a money clip, reformed its shape and added a bezel set onyx cabochon to make a necklace pendant.
She also took inspiration from "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and made a necklace from chain to fashion this tribute to the Riders of Rohan. The chain is fashioned in a full Persian weave with a bone horse's head as the clasp.  This is my favorite piece in her shop. 



The last design I am going to feature is called "Dragon's Tears."  Again she has taken wire and hand made the rings for the chain.  Absolutely beautiful.

Please visit the Alchemist's Vessel (oh how I love the name of the shop) and look at some of the other great items Alix Browning features.
