Welcome to Gypsy Fish
Made in Germany between 1850-1920. These pieces were excavated from,the now demolished, doll factories located in Germany. They were often baked into pudding or put in drinks for the holidays. Their meaning originated from the folk tale of “Fair Charlotte” about a girl who refused to wear a coat for a sleigh ride during a frigid night.

Artist @Gypsy Fish
As an artist, my work is inspired by nature, history and the magic that surrounds it. My unrefined style plays into both my mixed media art bottles, as well as the jewelry I design. Working to create a rugged, yet stylized look I purposely utilize the imperfections of the mediums I incorporate. Using found objects and different metals also helps me to achieve an archaic mystical feel.
Most of all, I love bringing the energy of nature and history together as one to be worn or wondered.
