Ally Shaw's Profile

About

All handmades are created one at a time in my little Victorian house in a cobblestone street in the shadow of the medieval walls of the city of York, where I'm serenaded by the hum of trains from the rail station and the howl of the Barghest prowling the snickleways of the ancient city. I'm inspired by Hammer Horror films, gothic novels and pagan ritual. The adornments I make are one-of-a-kind talismans, and I also offer lovingly refurbished antique and vintage finds that suggest their own dark histories.

Though I'm now a Yorkshire lass, I came of age on the West Coast of the U.S. and that sunny nostalgia and the cultural hybridity of Cali still brighten my imagination.
