This bracelet is beyond gorgeous and incredibly well made! Because I'm particular about the jewerly I wear, DarkRide has always, and will continue to be my go to shop. Quite frankly, I love ever purchase I have ever made! Caroline never ceases to amaze me with her brilliant, flawless and unique creations and superior customer service. Every piece I have ever purchased from her has long stood the test of time, especially given my active lifestyle. The eye for detail she has for not only her jewelry, but more importantly for her customer service followed by her beautiful packaging is impeccable! A+++ 🎉

About

Girl meets glass.

I've always been a crafty gal. The jewelry making, though, surfaced from a desire to collect. I wanted to get my hands on all the gorgeous Czech glass I was introduced to here on Etsy. I began making jewelry primarily because I wanted to play with Czech glass. I continue because there's a lot of glass out there.

This is a Dark Ride. My shop's name is a reference to a sign on the set of an old TV show. I always took it as a comment on life, in that context, but it also resonates with my excursions into popular culture. I enjoy the dark rides -- Gothic and detective fiction, horror narratives, and, particularly, vampire stories -- in popular narrative, graphic novels, video games, on film and television.

My interests have influenced my studies. I recently obtained a Master's Degree in Popular Culture. My areas of study? Detective fiction and vampire narratives.

The dark rides of popular culture also influence my assemblages. I dip into literature, fairy tale, music, television and film, and borrow from times past and imagined for inspirations. I work with antiqued metals primarily because of its ability to evoke another time. I work primarily with Czech glass with Picasso finishes because it is so freakin' awesome.

    I began making jewelry because I wanted to work with Czech glass. I still do :-)
