The best of late June, by Zachary Pryor Jewelry (etsy)

Aquamarine and Solar Quartz sterling necklace
Solar Quartz is a natural agatized quartz that is sliced from stalactites in clear, white or gray, with mossy inclusions. As with all quartz it is an energy enhancer, connecting to spirit and harmony.
Solar Quartz is said to bring emotional strength and uplifting with great power and energy.
The stone at the center is a gorgeous blue solar quartz set with sterling overlay. Natural and color treated faceted aquamarine rounds are wire wrapped with small sterling chain accents. This piece fastens in the front with a gorgeous vintage sterling toggle clasp. The necklace measures 17 inches in length.

Fun Fandom necklaces! – oxidized brass Loki necklace and Rhinestone R2D2 chain bib necklace. Geeky heart, stylish body.

To honor a beloved animal – they are coy, they are sly, cunning, they are adorable. And now they shine bright like a diamond. Emerald and White rhinestone gold fox charm earrings – with moving tails!

This beauty is named ‘Sky Blue and Black’ after a Jackson Browne song. I read a portion of the lyrics at my best friend’s funeral many years ago because we always sent lyrics to each other while I was in college. I miss her every day, but honoring her with a necklace once every so often gets me thinking about her and how much I loved and learned with her. This particular one is a Gunmetal and blue crystal druzy crystal cluster.


My earliest Muse, the Masters of the Universe and the Great Rebellion  

The moment I discovered He-Man and the Masters of the Universe I was hooked. The world and characters were like nothing I had ever seen and it had my synapses firing at full speed.  She-Ra came along soon after and I could really identify with this woman who was way more bad ass than Barbie. She seemed more like the fighting spirit I could see inside my own momma and grandmother. The world of He-Man and She-Ra led me to comic books and the heroes of Marvel and DC and thus, my art style was born. 

My latest painting was inspired by He-Man’s most trusted companion Cringer and the internet sensation lolcats. I CAN HAS A POWER Is available now

I sketched these characters day and night for many years, I begged for the toys, I rushed home after school to watch the cartoons and now they are still a huge part of my world. 

  My “No Fat Chicks” Skeletor is new, updated and now listed! A chubby Sorceress makes an appearance on his graphic tee. 

 Fisto, She-Ra, King Grayskull and King Randor dressed in their finest Viking garb and joined me on a recent trip to Latourell Falls. (fisto was and still is my favorite figure in the original and new toy line)

Just a few years ago Mattel and the Four Horsemen began releasing a re-vamped line of He-Man and She-Ra figures and they are stunning. I have quite a few of them and they often come with me on my hikes for photoshoots. Most of these make it to the Zachary Pryor Instagram page. 

  

These simple, striking beauties remind me of something She-Ra would wear, so I named them ADORA VS DESPARA Despara was the name Hordak have She-Ra when she was his pawn. 

   Twinsies at Ponytail Falls He-Man and Faker 

I don’t quite play with the action figures, but I do travel and hike with them and just that act reminds me of the cherished memories I created with the original line of figures on the banks of the Aroostook river in Northern Maine. 

  A statement necklace worthy of the ladies in the Great Rebellion! The eagle bib with Egytian influences is ready for you!  

 The He-Man and Skeletor graphic Tee diptych is also in my Etsy shop. 

  Double sided earring goodness

So there you have it – a peek into one of my oldest, longest running creative influences and some of the new pieces in my world inspired by it. I would be very interested in hearing from you if you have any special memories that stem from the worlds of Etheria and Eternia! Reach out and let me know!
