About

She's mad, but she's magic. There's no lie in her fire.

.W E L C O M E . T O . M Y . I M A G I N A T I O N.
I am known as a daywalker.
I have always had an interest in dark , Gothic, Victorian eras which you will see in many of my creations. I love to bring antiques, relics & primitives back to life by incorporating them into new pieces.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.M Y . W O R K .
: I am ONE person. I don't work in a factory. My items are NOT mass produced. Everything in my shop under 'handmade' is handmade by my own two hands- With some help from my children, finding bones, stones and other treasures.
What you will find in my shoppe are one of a kind or few of a kind items.
All my gold, silver & palladium jewelry is cast by me with my big bad torch.
There is literally nothing I cannot make in terms of jewelry. I have the equipment plus over 20 years of skill to make fine gold , silver and gemstone jewelry & the imagination and moxie to make over the top costume & statement jewelry. And then at times, I decide to have the two collide. So if there is something your little heart desires, drop me a line and chances are I can make it! I'm a visionary, I already see your custom piece finished.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

. INTEGRITY . STATEMENT.
All of the jewelry you see in my shop is handmade by me with my own 2 hands - unless of course it is vintage in which case it will be in our vintage section. I have been a dental technician for over 27 years and have owned a dental laboratory for 15 of those years. The processes I use to cast gold crowns is the same process I use to make sterling , gold and palladium jewelry. It is called the 'lost wax' technique. I have been dabbling in jewelry making for about 12 years for family & friends, but decided to open to the public here on Etsy in 2009. I also make a lot of really cooky & weird costume jewelry and love to incorporate vintage pieces into new pieces. I love also utilizing bones, feathers, teeth, and other animal parts. Please know that we obtain our animal parts from either a licensed taxidermist or by our own excursions into the nearby forest. I also delve into my own Native American heritage and make one of a kind medicine bags & other leather and antler jewelry you see here & there in the shop. If you have any questions at all regarding any of my hand made processes, please feel free to ask! My shoppe is REAL Handmade and I support REAL Handmade!
"When You buy from a small mom business, you are not helping a CEO buy a third vacation home. You are helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy get his team jersey, a mom put food on the table, a dad pay a mortgage, or a student pay for college. Our customers are our shareholders- and they are the ones we strive to make happy. Thank you for supporting small businesses!" - unknown

Little known facts about me!
ಠ_ಠ
I love giraffes!
I hate FUJL's.
I love being unforgettable.
You cannot fool me twice.
I always WIN.
I despise cheaters, liars, thieves.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom Orders, always welcome. We specialize in unique alchemy requests and one of a kind handmade and hand cast jewelry. We use the "lost wax" technique for casting charms, pendant, rings, etc... What inspires us are the questionable things, of this earth in folklore, ancient mythology, magic , dark romance, legend and tales of old including: dieties, shaman, werewolves, vampires, fairies, aparitions, shapeshifters, changelings, hobbits, wizards, voodoo, magic and more
From this inspiration we create masterpieces or manifestations- if you will- of necklaces, earrings, bracelets, anklets and other curious trinkets. Custom & personalized work cannot be returned.

Sizing details

If you are ordering a custom ring and need to know your size, here is a guide just print it & size away!

Care instructions

Raw & Natural elements are our fundamentals creating unique jewelry, engagement rings & wedding bands in Fine jewelry in gold, palladium & sterling silver jewelry using the lost wax technique, often paired with precious & semi-precious gemstones.
Please note that gemstones, bones, vintage items & other materials we use can be delicate in their nature. So take care while wearing & storing them.
