Dear Dark & Curious





























Dear dark & curious, for I always need you in my life! Please rest in the shadows and peak into the light every once in a while. To all who share these desires, I thought I'd share some special pieces new to the shop.

Razor Blade Romance ~ earrings for ones who love the thrill of life and unexpected moments.

Black Pyramid Onyx Earrings ~ inspired by Egyptian mythology and the darker days that point to the galaxies in the blackened sky.

Alligator Claw Necklace ~ for those who celebrate petite treasures like this and for those who worship and hid their dreams inside their very own cabinet of curiosities.


SHOP UPDATE: free shipping on jewelry will be offered throughout July. I am hoping to find time during my mini vacation to continue to bring new pieces to life. I'm hoping to do some experimenting with my new soldering gun in days to come and also will try not to burn my fingers some more.

Speaking In Tongues Group Art Show Recap



Together as one, many artists grounded the walls of Black Vulture Gallery in Philly for the "Speaking in Tongues" group art show. Curated by Buddy Nestor, the paintings hung in strange melancholy and also each stand on their own. I was truly honored to be a part of the group art show and created a new painting called the Oracle, seen above.

The night started with myself and fellow artist Kristen Margiotta, we traveled up from Delaware knowing the night would be an adventure, it sure was, first I missed the exit and ended up traveling up South street, we finally made it to Fishtown in one piece and were invited by a mob of people filled within the walls of obscurity. The environment was thrilling, live painting to the thrashing metal of Decap Attak, I had many favorites of the night, including Ewelina Ferruso's "The Return" and Zac Shiffer's "Reflections From Far Away."

You can check out more about the show over at Hi-Fructose Magazine, with this little preview of the show, but def make some plans to see this lovely dark show in person.

Are You a Rocker Girl?

I remember my teens like they were yesterday, isolation from the world was the be all, end all, locking myself in my bedroom, and threading my life with the roots of my appreciation for all that rocked. My walls were taped with images of the group Pantera, ripped right out of Metal Edge; my sanctuary. I also worshipped the music of Type O Negative, Life of Agony, Faith No More and Sabbath just to name a few, the emotion that ran through my body was indescribable and still is today. It was that foundation that I grew from, deep down I am still much the same girl as I was 10 years ago. I asked myself the other day as I was driving on the back roads listening to Delirious Nomand by Armored Saint, what would I do without music? I'm not sure the answer, would their be a substitute? This is what life is about, music of the past and new discovery a new band, playing the shit out of their cd and enjoying life. As I'm older now I see my younger kin like me, not afraid to express what they love, it is quite beautiful! The attitude, passion and expression of the underground brings forth the creation of the Rocker Girl earrings, a combination of sweet and sassy that define what it is to be yourself.
