Featured seller - Arctida Creations

Today I would like to present you Arctida, Scandinavian artist who create fine artisan gemstone jewelry and Digital Art.

The creative studio of Arctida is situated in the 750 year old city of Stockholm in Sweden. However, the inspiration for Alecia’s (the artist her self) jewelry is taken from much farther north where she was born and grew up, from the polar circle all the way up to the North Pole. The name Arctida refers to the hypothetical polar continent that is believed to exist in the geological past of our planet.

The northern nature with its crisp polar nights and gleaming Northern lights is the main inspiration source for of all of her art. Each individual piece of Alecia’s jewelry is created with the ideas and influences from the world of the lone Scandinavian mountains that astonish with their untouched landscape and wandering flock of wild reindeer, then on to the even more remote, uninhabited world of ice, populated only by the seals and polar bears.

Through this source of inspiration as well as her interest in natural science (she works as a molecular biologist/cancer researcher at her day job) Alecia is able to create unique pieces of art with both inner and outer power and genuine "one of a kind" – design.

You can keep up with Alecia and new happenings in her shops by visiting her blog or following her on Twitter or Facebook.

Every girl dreams to be a Princess in medieval dress with wide skirt and long wide sleeves! Also having experience in sew historical clothes, I decided to sew this Weddind dress in medieval stile. This dress is like the one in a medieval fairy tale story! Perfect for medieval style wedding! It’ll be great for The Venetian Carnival, Renaissance Faire or medieval event!

The length of the skirt is 9m!!! It’s long posterior and decorated with golden ribbon. Long wide sleeves are lining with golden atlas. The dress has laмcing in the front and the belt made from a golden atlas with tassels. Neck and edge of the sleeves are decorated with seed bead.

In this dress you’ll feel Princess!

Ogni ragazza sogna di essere la Principessa in abito medievale con la gonna ampia e le maniche lunghe e larghe! Avendo già esperienza di cucire abbigliamento storico, ho deciso di fare l’abito da sposa in stile medievale. Sarà perfetto per il Carnevale Veneziano, la festa rinascimentale, l’evento medievale o il matrimonio in stile storico!

La lunghezza dell’orlo è di 9 metri!!! La gonna è piu lunga da dietro e rifinita con il nastro dorato. Le lunghe larghe maniche sono foderate con atlas dorato. L’abito ha l’allacciatura davanti e la cintura larga di atlas dorato con le nappe. Il bordo della scollatura e delle maniche è ricamato con perle di vetro e perline.

In questo abito ti sentirai la Principessa del Principe Azurro!
