W h a t ' s I n A N a m e ?
I am inspired by folklore, by the tales that evoke superstition and woe. The name of my brand comes from the story of a Werewolf and a Princess, the Swedish folk band Garmarna's song "Varulven." The Princess gets lost in the woods and happens upon a wolf-man set to prey upon her. She pleads with the creature, "Oh dear wolf, please don't bite me, I will give you my Silver Gown (Silversark)" She offers her silver shoes and even her golden crown, but even that won't sate the beast. All it wants is her blood.
I find this song to be a perfect blend of what it is I try to create. I am fascinated by the macabre, but also by the pageantry and elegance of historical costume, namely Elizabethan through Victorian times. I strive to make beautiful as well as atypical clothing.

I'm a seamstress wanting to get a more professional portfolio together. I have been sewing for ten years, and started up SilversÃ¤rk in 2005 to provide high-quality Lolita (and other style) garments at economical prices. I sell things at my Etsy store that I made on a whim (my website is currently down but I am working on it), and I also gladly work on commission. I feel everyone should wear clothing as unique as they are, and take pride in my one-of-a-kind pieces.
I have collaborated with many Model Mayh
