About MeI want to bring to my customers an insight into my imagination, a remeniscent feeling of a bygone era that never really was.
I don't like to limit mysef to certain styles, I like to explore different concepts behind alternative cultures, dabbling in parts of the Gothic, Steampunk and fantasy cultures. I'm heavily influenced by the past and adore the idea of mixing past elements with new pieces and giving them a new fantastical dimension.
I personally source unusual antique and vintage pieces, whether they come from old curiosity shops or my personal collection of strange items I have accumulated over the years.
I currently feature within many of my accessories ethically sourced animal parts such as bird wings and bones. I am drawn to the use of these materials as I believe they provide a deeper link to nature and the cycle of life and death. As a Pagan, it is my belief that this can be better honoured by fully engaging both the light and dark aspects of nature. I do not support animal cruelty in any form. Most of the pieces I use are personally sourced by myself locally and I try to ensure that the rest are also sourced ethically. When this is not possible, I use replica pieces. While I acknowledge that this may be controversial, I assert that in a society that uses animal products, it is better to be educated and respectful regarding their use rather than maintaining a half- informed, sanitised perspective.
Ninety percent of the pieces I create are original, and I try to be fair when pricing them. I believe that unique and beautiful products should be accessible to everyone. I strive to provide the best customer service and experience I can whilst sharing an insight into my imagination. Ultimately, I want my pieces to delight and inspire.
I have created this profile for the purpose of networking and to hopefully gain some interest in my designs. I am willing to loan pieces out for models and photographers if they wish to work with some of my pieces. I would only ask for a small deposit to ensure I get me pieces back safe and undamaged. If you like what I design then please just message me and I will be happy to help.
