Audrey Kitching’s Crystal Cactus shop is full of candy-colored beauties! i’m the year of the snake and here aren’t that many simple yet elegant snake jewelry, so this piece was an automatic WANT. if my birthday was in February it would’ve been a perfect match.
Forever 21 "POW! Necklace"
these were so popular. comic book lettering makes such a quirky statement piece. simple yet bold is the way to go!
ugh, i really need to learn how to tie a ribbon. i found this charm and white ribbon while cleaning my wardrobe. decided to combine the two and made it wearable. ahh, i love creepy-cute accessories.
i’ve been so tempted to buy these! for some reason, they’re not selling well at our store. better snag them before people decide they’re cool.
i’m so happy i’m wearing this necklace again! i made this Sheela na gig necklace about a year or two ago in hopes of creeping people out. apparently, i failed because i get so many complements from family, friends, and curious strangers of all kinds. i have a few outfits that would go so well with this piece, but i don’t think my workplace has that sense of humor (i bet the customers will love it though).
these pretty little charms are known as “Lover’s Eyes”. Popular around 1780-1830, they were painted on ivory, embellished into jewelry (i.e. brooches, charms, rings), and exchanged between lovers. screw chocolates and flowers, these are far more romantic! it can cost up to $21,000. a girl can dream, right?

i think the steampunk aesthetic is everyone’s guilty pleasure. personally, it reminds me of found-object sculptures. these artists take something ordinary and make it extraordinary. i’m sure people in the Industrial Revolution would’ve never thought of gears and washers becoming a statement jewelry.
an image i wanted to share simply b/c it’s pretty and makes my eyes sparkle with happiness. c’mon, every girl has a weak spot for a little glitter.
i have finally made a Sheela-na-gig necklace with Sculpey clay! she is an awesome goddess of birth and creation. we all owe our existence to her, haha.
