About DeadGoodJewellery

Sales 1,935
On Etsy since 2012

Naturally deceased and found roadkill, fauna and flora made into beautiful resin, steel and copper jewellery, hair clips, art and Taxidermy.

Back in 2011 i was busy in the countryside collecting and pressing beautiful flowers for art projects. Already having boxes filled with naturally deceased flies and animal parts, i decided i was going to find a way to preserve them forever. Inspired by the film 'jurassic park' i went on to teach myself how to make resin jewellery. And so Dead Good Jewellery was born!

I am also a self taught taxidermist and a Fine art Bachelor in painting. I am heavily influenced by surrealism and dada, ( think Max Ernst) i just love the juxtaposition of different animal and plant parts along with things like dolls eyes and anthropomorphic beings. ( this will make more sense if you look at my taxidermy and paintings on my website www.nicolahebson.com)

My work has been featured on several tv shows such as channel 4's documentary ''all creatures great and stuffed'' , history channel's ''no county for old men'' , bbc north west tonight and Itv's ''This morning''. I have also had numerous articles written about me online, most notable include VICE.COM, BUST magazine and beautiful decay.

You might bump into me on my travels around many u.k festivals such as Alchemy festival, boomtown, beatherder festival, triplicity, Solfest, pendle witch camp and many other small pagan style festivals!

Hi and welcome to my shop! I hope you will enjoy my handmade, ethical and beautiful jewellery, taxidermy and accessories.

IMPORTANT!

All the animals and insects seen in my work have died of natural causes, roadkill accidents or found already dead. Occasionally i will be donated deceased pets remains, and i also find animal bones when out walking in the British countryside. I would NEVER kill another sentient being for the purposes of my art, nor would i get anyone to do it for me. Through my art and jewellery i wish to honour the insect or animal's life, celebrate it's beauty and celebrate the beauty that nature creates. There is nothing more beautiful than the things we see in nature!

In no way do i exploit animals or insects, nor do i encourage anyone to. I use animals that have been left to rot and i carefully bring them back to life and honour their spirit, and i do it with the upmost love an care. Its just the same as someone picking up a shell off the beach, the soul occupant of the body has left back into the ether and i am using the natural resources left over that are available for me to use and admire. I only take small amounts of things i forage such as moss and shells. Anything foraged that i dont use i return to nature.
I have a deep appreciation and respect for all life on this Earth. I hark back to a time i imagine when folk came across a naturally deceased animal, they would use it to make clothes, art, tools and talismans. I believe these types of people existed, and i am the reincarnation of that.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR PURCHASE

All my resin pieces are made from jewellers grade bio resin which is non-toxic and uv resistant. However to help keep it in the best condition please keep it away from extreme heat and dampness.

Please separate your jewelry from sharp, rough items to reserve its smoothness. The surface of resin may become cloudy after wearing for a while, you can rub it on a piece of soft fabric and optional fibreglass/ceramic polish such as peek or auto glym to bring back the shine.

Remember to take off a dead good ring when doing the washing up etc.. to ensure longevity of the piece.

Taxidermy accessories should be kept inside packaging when not in use.

Taxidermy pieces should ideally be kept behind glass, but if not dust may gather on them. If dust gathers you can either hoover them on a very very light setting, or dust them outside with a little dry toothbrush.

Do not get taxidermy pieces damp or wet.

CUSTOM PIECES ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED
