My thanks to Caroline from DarkRide for working with me on this custom order. She answered all of my questions quickly and produced exactly what I wanted. The bracelet is a unique design and beautifully made. I'll definitely be back!

Es un hermosísimo brazalete, supera con mucho la imagen dada en la fotografía,la belleza de las piedras es muy superior,el diseño súper original y hasta el cierre es bonito. Es muy ponible, así que le sacas mucho partido. El pedido llegó en el tiempo indicado,con todo puedo decir que es altamente recomendable.

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.
