Indian girls name meaning, Sapphire; Blue stone; Precious stone    


Another glittering blue fan covered with a decorative golden spiral tree that leads into the staves and the front guard. Each branch end is spotted with a lush spun gold that catches the light and twinkles. I have also accented the fan with neon pink flashes as dots across the glossy shimmering surface. The staves are a metallic deeper blue. The image of the fan in use and in sunlight changes the colour to a  more aqua blue green.


This is a light and bright fan that is translucent when held up to the light. I have placed it with a locally sourced tassel in bright gold and deep pink but it looks good with turquoise too. The back of this fan is simply decorated in a deeper blue glitter finish with a similar design on the guard to match the front. 

Gift wrapped and boxed with a personal message card upon request at no extra charge. Also comes with a handy wrist lanyard for easy carry and use.


Hand fans are fast becoming an original alternative to a wedding corsage and something that can be gifted or kept and cherished as a reminder of a special time, place and event? Great for a birthday, anniversary and bridal gift, why not have a 'something blue' hand fan?


Also perfect for hot flashes, flushes and general huffing and flabbergasting!

The painting is made directly onto a blank fan which is made of Fabric and plastic. Then they are lacquered for further protection. I have used this particular fan for its lovely sturdy feel it's durability and high use potential as well as having the closest surface texture to canvas for my paintings.


When receiving a fan please open it gently upon arrival and leave open for a wee while to rid any lingering process smells and to generally let the fan breath. Clean with a damp cloth and avoid rough handling, leaving in high temperatures and exposing to water....treat it as a usable art object and it will last you well.


If you are looking for a way to display your fan when not in use? For a rustic look you can find small easels at craft stores that you can paint to match your fan as I have done for many of my photographs.


Some clients display their fans in deep frames, either open, for easy access or closed keeping the fan as an art object.A super easy way to show your fan on a wall is to put up two wall protrusions, make sure they are soft finish or padded (not bare nails or screws) and rest bottom of the leaf of the fan on the points, so the fan spans open.


Place the points about 5 inches / 12.6cms apart. Many of my images show fans displayed like this too.Or you can find generic hand fan stands here:

  • Some care instructions....Your fan is pretty hardy but as a hand painted object, it needs to be loved and cared for. When it arrives, open slowly and carefully especially if your fan has had a long overseas journey.

    Keep away from excessive water or direct excessive heat and anyone that wants to play with it roughly or with sticky fingers, I find a quick fan clip round the ear does the trick!

    Your fan has been sealed and lacquered for its protection and can be cleaned gently with a soft damp cloth, do not rub vigorously as this may damage the painted surface of your fan.
