About

Thank you for visiting my shop! I am an artist and collector of (too) many things, including vintage asian pieces from the 1950's, Catholic and Buddhist artifacts, unusual tiki and voodoo curios, plus mechanical clockworks, tarot cards and strange winged relics. I like nag champa incense, gypsy caravans, mysticism, and Buddhist and Taoist philosophies. I also have a thing for (good) 80’s music, archery, converse, taekwondo, wine-tasting, and cool-looking robots. And I love creating art!

I have a background in fine art photography, and have studied lots o’ other art forms like painting, multimedia, graphic art and jewelry making. I also studied design back when I lived in Sydney, Australia. My goal as an artist is to try and create something beautiful from commonplace things in our every-day life.

I have a passion for history and the allure of the past. I am inspired by many design styles. From the ornate details of Victorian Gothic and Medieval architecture to the ‘kitcsh’ and swooping curves and space age design of Raygun Gothic and Googie/Populuxe along with the sleek, horizontal lines of Streamline Moderne. It all makes my eyes happy!!

Oh, and I adore vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories! Everything from vintage polynesian dresses to flowing gauzy gypsy skirts. And from lace and velvet batcave, goth and steampunk styles to old western shirts and worn-out cowboy boots.

I have been buying on etsy since 2008 and am finally starting to sell here now. My shop will include a hodge-podge of unusual items including my hand-crafted steampunk, gothic and gypsy inspired jewelry, many of the antique wares, beautiful vintage dresses, purses and jewelry that I have found on my travels and my own fine art photography and design.

All of the jewelry I make is one-of-a-kind. I consider each piece to be a separate tiny 'work of art' and attention to detail is important to me. I won't sell it until it "feels" right. The elements I use to create them include antique clockwork pieces, vintage jewelry, relics and found objects. Each piece will be original and no two will look exactly the same. So if you see something you like, you might want to buy it now! ;o)

Thanks again for perusing my ‘shop’. I am trying to add new things daily so please come back often to see what new treasures I've found and what trinkets I've created...
