So much big news tonight, I hardly know where to begin! First, I have a brand new original painting for you - very special auction for one penny - a CUSTOM PAINTING - of a Faces of Faery - it'll be #75 - the winner of this auction gets to tell ME how to finish painting her! Next - I'm very pleased to announce the official publisher's release statement for my upcoming TAROT/ORACLE DECK! Yes, my "Oracle of Shadows and Light" deck will be available from Blue Angel Publishing in May, with a fantastic guidebook by Lucy Cavendish, and I have info regarding that here in this email. And finally - I have a sneak peek of my very first FAIRY WALL SCULPTURE available for pre-order at the Bradford Exchange. A gorgeous fairy/moon/dragon sculpture that actually hangs on your wall - and she is stunning!
First off is the new original painting - a CUSTOM Faces of Faery - this is the 75th in the series. The winning bidder will receive the painting in the photos, but first they will get to tell me the following: **Haircolour/Style (I can make it shorter, curly, add bangs, whatever you'd like) **Eye Colour, Makeup **Skintone, Freckles, Tattoos **Wings if you'd like me to fit some in (note the size & placement of the face on the panel, it'd be a hint of them or very small ones) **I could potentially add a bit of ornamentation like paint in a butterfly or flowers in her hair, earrings, leaves, something along those lines. Faces of Faery all feature beautiful faery-inspired creatures, and she is no exception. This big eyed beauty is to be painted just for you! After the auction ends, I will email you and YOU will tell ME how to finish her! It is on GALLERY STYLE CRADLED MASONITE - 6"x6" in size (like all Faces of Faery) - Matt has added a hanger on the back, so it is READY TO HANG! No frame needed! She's up on eBay starting at ONE PENNY for a 10-day auction ending the afternoon/evening of Sunday, February 21st 4:41PM Central Time

Next - as promised - my very first TAROT/ORACLE DECK! I am SO excited about this! It has been two years in the making, but the publishers just finally announced it officially today so now I'm able to tell you all about it (whee!! I'm awful at keeping exciting secrets, hehe!). The book and descriptions, guides, messages, all that great stuff is by Lucy Cavendish (an expert in the field of divination). Artwork is of course by Jasmine Becket-Griffith (me!), and the deck features 45 cards and guidebook. The name of the deck is "Oracle of Shadows and Light" and it will be packaged in a hard-cover box set. RELEASE DATE: MAY 2010 from Blue Angel Publishing - I will definitely keep you updated. In the meantime - you can read all about the deck, see sample cards and read selections from the Guide on the official release page here:

Next up - my new Bradford Exchange line - "Jasmine Becket-Griffith's Fairy Wall Sculptures!" This is my very first wall sculpture - and exactly as it sounds, it is a glorious sculpture that hangs on the wall. This is great especially for folks with cats or small children who like to knock things over, as it's safely up on the wall. Also very nice for those serious collectors who are running out of shelf space (like me, lol!). Her name is "Sapphire" - A beautiful, highly detailed sculpture of my fairy sitting on a crescent moon, sparkling with many simulated gemstones - crystal stars hanging below. She is holding an adorable glimmering dragon on her lap, too. As always there is a 365-day guarantee on these, guaranteeing your 100% satisfaction. And - very nice - you do NOT get billed until your music box has shipped! Click here (or just copy & paste this link into your URL field if it is not clickable)::
