Alt/Dark Accessories

Exactly as it says on the label. Alternative. Dark. Mostly accessories and jewelry.

This is a one-person operation. I hunt down all the pieces, make up a design, put it together, pack, sell and ship - all right here at my glue-covered, cramped, overcrowded desk. I have bins of beads and findings, the jump rings live in round containers stacked up on an old CD spindle next to the bead spinner, little drawers full of tools like beading needles and scissors. I've lost more seed beads into this floor than will ever be recovered. I am very organized just doesn't look like it.

I am forever seeing jewelry I'd like, but...there always seems to be a catch, something that I'd like better if it was just a little different. So, in need of a hobby/job, I've set out to make interesting jewelry pieces for everyday and some fancier things too. Pieces I'd want to wear (and I do often make things for myself).

Silver and Black. Gunmetal. Iridescence, Aurora Borealis (AB) coatings. Things that look like an oil spill on wet pavement, without being a real oil spill. Baroque, Rococo, Art Nouveau, Art Deco. Alternative, Dark, Alt, Goth. Sometimes simple, sometimes intricate, always a little different.

Agathion? There's a couple of appropriate sources for the name. It's the center of the Plane of Pandemonium in D&D, a place full of caverns and darkness and who knows what? A place where gods and monsters store their valuables. In other realms, an agathion is a summoned familiar who appears at midday (and I do have a habit of sleeping late).

    I like things dark, black, and iridescent. And bats. Maybe I'm a little weird but there's no such thing as normal. I hand make everything you see in my shop - buying beads, weaving threads, twisting wires. No reselling here.

Hi there. This shop specializes in alt/dark jewelry and accessories. What's that mean? Expect lots of black, dark colors, silver and gunmetal finishes. Interesting pieces with a little less brightness. Alternative jewelry.

Please ask about custom orders. I can customize the designs already available in my shop or work with you to create something unique. I'm happy to accept variations on existing listings for color or length, or to try and re-create a sold out item you've fallen for.

This is a one person operation. I make all the jewelry, do all the sourcing, listing, shipping, photography - you name it. I try to make things I love, to keep my shop stocked with things a little different, and to share my style.

Additional policies and FAQs
Allergy warning! I do have a cat. He is not allowed in my work space, and all completed and for-sale items are stored carefully for cleanliness and protection, but a cat is present. FYI. This also seems like a good time to note: non-smoking environment.

All jewelry is shipped with a black drawstring jewelry bag - sheer organza in front, so you can see what's inside, and a solid velvety back.

I usually do NOT include a receipt or packing slip of any kind. If you would like one, please send a convo or leave a note when placing your order.

Again, I do take custom orders. Use the "request a custom order" button or send a convo to get started. Feel free to inquire about changes in length or color, or new and original one-of-a-kind designs. I will respond via convo with a quote, to be approved by the buyer, before beginning any custom work. Custom pieces may require partial or full payment up front.
