I think these might be one of the most brutal drops at this point, good thing there are 6 per year! And they are originals...

You on her mailing list? Has all the details. She makes a new site for the drop.


Yes, I am on her waiting list - I opted on the middle of last month. Didn't get anything on this sale though. :(

Oh, well, on to the next.

How did everyone know about the drop? I am following her on all her various social medias and I did not see anything. Even going back and checking now, I still see no announcement of any kind. Thank you.

Totally spaced this drop, not that it probably mattered anyway. I really liked the House Wren.

I decided to add the hawthorn branch to the piece as there is a huge amount of folklore connected to the tree, much concerning the nurturing/violent duality found in nature and also it’s traditional use in protection spells, the 24kt gold halo encircling this threatened bird is my own protection spell. If anyone would be interested in getting on the email preview list for this show please shoot the gallery a line at [email protected]

Do Vanessa's pieces even make it to the preview email? It seemed like they were all sold by the time the email came out for their last show but maybe I am remembering wrong.

I think they just sold out that quick. Just imaging how many paper hoarders are on that preview list :lol:

It was explained to me that the original pieces were offered to certain past clientele prior to being made available in the preview. Needless to say, the past clientele did not pass on the offers.
