As you can see, I love Pink, Turquoise, Leopard Print and Star Wars... Not necessarily in that order ;).
If you've ever wondered what my workspace looks like.. the majority of the time it is not at all as tidy as this ;).
Do you like my watermelon cushion? I'm thinking of adding them to the VelvetVolcano homewares range that is in the works :).
Shelfie!
You can see our Azure, Peacock and Flame sunnies plus my 'Love' Slouchy Leopard Beanie - as well as my love of toys, Buffy and skulls ;).

About

'An eruption of glorious things'

VelvetVolcano first erupted in November 2009, created by Tamsyn Martin for gals and ghouls with an affinity for sparkles and spookiness.

Specialising in crystal encrusted jewellery and accessories - each item is handmade from start to finish with a lot of love, care and a generous dose of glitz.

Hey gals and ghouls :).

My name is Tamsyn and I started VelvetVolcano in November 2009. Originally VV started as a hobby and an 'escape' for me but it quickly blossomed and now it seems everything around me is covered in sparkles ;).

I started VV when I was very ill with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue and other chronic illness issues as something to help keep my mind off my illness and a way to unleash my creativity, I started taking custom orders not long after and this glittering journey began and took me beyond what I could have imagined. I became self-employed in 2010 :).

I love to make super sparkly, eye-catching statement pieces and hope that you love to wear them too :). Each jewellery piece is designed and completely handmade from scratch by me including crystal encrusting by hand (each rhinestone has been hand-set and carefully selected to ensure the highest quality). Each piece can take anywhere from an hour to 6 hours+ to complete, depending on the size and requirements for that item :).
All of our crochet wear is designed by me and handmade by 'Mumma VV', my wonderful and crafty Mum :). Once she has worked her magic I add all the finishing touches (including the extra sparkle ;) ).

I'm often asked 'Why the name VelvetVolcano?'
VelvetVolcano by my own definition means 'an eruption of glorious things' (and I swear it has nothing to do with a film called 'The Oh in Ohio' haha, though I was very entertained when I saw it mentioned :P) and is essentially the two sides of my brand. 'Velvet' is sweet and cute, inspired by flowers and nature, cupcakes and pretty things (with a lot of pink!). 'Volcano' is the dark side, inspired by horror, gore, the macabre, halloween and dia de los muertos.
The general theme throughout my work (be it cute or ghoulish) is to capture the eye - I often joke that my pieces are wearable disco balls ;).

I'm inspired by so many things including (but not limited to - inspiration is everywhere!) - Nature, Body Modification, Drag Queens, Horror and The Macabre, Video Games, Super Heroes & Comic Books, Astronomy & The Universe, Subcultures and Personal Style and Mythology.

I hope you like what you find at VelvetVolcano and love your spooky, sweet and sparkly goodies as much as I enjoyed making them for you!
Thank you for checking out my shop and supporting small businesses!
