Captured Fairy Jars

I'm making a tiny little captured fairy jar.  I start with a tiny hand-sculpted fairy around two inches long.  I decorate her, dress her, add hair and arrange her hair into a wild little fairy girl style. 
Her wings are real dragonfly wings, hardened and glittered.  And no I did not kill the poor little thing, he was the victim of a horrible head on car crash.  Namely, he crashed into the front grill of my Dad's car.  I figured I was preserving what was left of his beauty :) 

I'll post updates as I work on her jar environment.

Very bad inside-after dark picture that I'll change tomorrow of her inside her jar which is done inside now.  Very hard to tell how cute this is in person.

I plan on doing a raffia bow once I lid this with a hang tag on it telling her name, location she was caught, how big she is, vital info and a release back into the wild date :)

Her hang tag reads:

Name of the fairy captured:  a wee little Fae by the name of Anastaise

Currently for sale in my store
