Announcement   Exotic. Meditative. Playful. A work of art? Accessories can be one or all of these, but they should always be comfortable and flatter your natural uniqueness.

Most of our designs are one-of-a-kind and feature natural gemstones or incorporate vintage, found and recycled elements. All of them are intended for real life adventure wear. Where do you want to go today?

A multidisciplinary artist always on the lookout for the next creative challenge, AnthraChic's Alicia Grega is a romantic daydreamer holding fast to the conviction that magic can be part of everyday life. Many of our most recent designs have been designed to assist metaphysical practice throughout the stress and hustle of 21st century lifestyle demands.

Inspirations include natural ephemera, surprising juxtapositions, Victorian elegance, and the early '70s California culture of my childhood. Descended from Eastern European coal-mining immigrants, I'm proud to live in Scranton, Pa. since 1999 and harbor deep admiration for the region's rust belt determination. I follow a shop local philosophy in general, but purchase a good portion of my supplies from other Etsy sellers.

Most of my inventory is ready to ship within 24 hours. I also create custom works or accept commissions. Custom orders can likely be turned out within a day or two. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have. Just click "contact shop owner" to send me a message.

Other specialties include fine art photography and graphic design. Occasionally, I offer unique thrift store and vintage estate sale finds for resale.

If you are in the Scranton area visit The Wonderstone Gallery at Dunmore Corners to purchase my pieces in person. I am also an early supporter of ScrantonMade (www.ScrantonMade.com) and often work as part of this local cooperative network.

AnthraChic gift certificates are available upon request. Message me for more information.

About

Don't Just Say It ... Wear It

Welcome to a landscape of one of a kind designs inspired by unique gemstones stones, vintage, and handcrafted components.

Not content to settle into a one-track crafting life, Alicia is constantly exploring, teaching herself how to do things she never thought she could do. She's created original components with polymer clay, image transfer, resin, and metal wire, as well as found objects.

She is deeply fascinated with natural gemstones and is looking forward to deepening her metal working and lapidary skills in the future. In the summer of 2012 she began working with fabric and created her first collection of cocktail hats and fascinators. Most recently, her deepening spiritual practice has found its way into the work in the form of mediation aids and wearable rocks and crystals believed to offer metaphysical properties.

It all began when Alicia was awarded an individual artist grant from the Pennsylvania Humanities Council in Arts Commentary in 2009 on the strength of her work in arts journalism. She created a multimedia presentation on the resurgence of vaudeville, cabaret, and burlesque aesthetics in popular performance. Beyond attitude, this aesthetic manifested visually in costume and adornment as much as graphic design and style of sound. Looking to offer something for sale at these presentations beyond the usual marketing merchandise, Alicia started stringing together examples of the aesthetics she was lecturing about in the tangible form of jewelry.

She was surprised by how much she enjoyed this work. It was a delight to make things with her hands and in a tactile way that did not involve looking at a computer screen. Her designs were well received and a monster was born.

Already using the SubVerse Aphrodesia name for her freelance theater and photography endeavors, Alicia added this ongoing AnthraChic branch of accessories created with the stubborn determination of her coal mining ancestry and a deliberate blurring of the line between visual and verbal expression.
