Treasury Tuesday

Another wonderful Treasury Tuesday has arrived.  Let's celebrate some treasuries, the shops they contain, and the curators who made them.

To begin, we visit Oenopia from Paris France.  Her favorite materials to work with are cold porcelain, clay, polymer clay, papier mache, fabric, and pearls such as she used making the beautiful flower decorations here.

The owlish treasury below is her work as well.
