Here are some of my most recent (and favourite) creations.

For the last 2 weeks I have been inspired and creating at break-neck speeds. I have some really great new re-purposed vintage jewelry made with pieces that I acquired in vintage markets during my recent Philadelphia trip. I also made a few new geektastic creations for my page filled with pieces inspired by comics, anime, pop culture, and movies. But the thing I am most excited about lately is my updated L’il Lard butt series. I am creating as many as possible to sell as originals, but will also be launching a line of home goods inspired by those same originals. STAY TUNED!

Uplifted by friends, inspired by past works

My favorite creation from today is the ‘Vampire Killer.’ This piece is made with vintage silver and gold plated chains and filled with found rosary crosses and miraculous medals. Two of the medals in this piece are notable because they were acquired by a dear friend when she visited Paris recently. The note she sent with the two medals made me tear up quite a bit as I was overwhelmed with her good intentions. I’ve attached a photo of the note along with some images of the glorious VAMPIRE KILLER. The shortest layer of the necklace measures 16 inches and the longest is 19. It closes with a large, easy to use toggle clasp and is available on my etsypage.
