Spooky and Beautiful

I have always been obsessed with found objects. I have been collecting bones and artifacts for most of my life. I am an animal lover, vegetarian, and an animal advocate. I ensure all my materials are sourced ethically. I am constantly sourcing and working with new materials to create the perfect blend of spooky and beautiful. This is my mission.

I have been fortunate enough to do specialty costume design for a movie and production design for horror short. My work is also featured in the book, Creepy Romance, with a slew of talented artists. I was a featured designer at the Head+Hand+Hoof Cocktails & Couture fashion show at the internationally renowned art gallery Roq la Rue. I participated in the Edge of the Forest group show, the Bell Jar II show, and the Miniatures show at Ghost Gallery, as well as the Miniatures show at Twilight Gallery. My jewelry has been featured in Nord Magazine and in music videos by Ephrata and Evening Bell.

I created a small exclusive capsule collection for Urban Outfitters for Holiday 2014.

Open the Cellar Door has been featured on, Dirge Magazine, The Stranger, and in Stackedd Magazine.

Open the Cellar Door regularly sells at markets in Seattle. I always create new designs to unveil at each market. Please follow my Instagram page to see where I will be next.

Welcome to Open the Cellar Door. I have lovingly created each piece in this shop and will be posting new items several times a week. I am influenced by found and salvaged objects, ancient artifacts, rust, nature, decay, bones, taxidermy, doom metal, high fashion, and the occult. All animal parts are ethically sourced and treated with the utmost respect.

I will package and ship your item within 1 business day unless it is a custom or made to order piece. I offer USPS 2-5 day First Class Shipping and USPS 1-3 day Priority Mail for all jewelry. A tracking number will be sent to you as soon as your order ships. I personally drop all packages off with the USPS. Please note that once I turn over packages to the United States Postal Service their progress is out of my hands. Open the Cellar Door is not responsible for lost or stolen packages. Please make sure that your shipping information is accurate when placing your order.


I ship via first class mail via USPS.

I am very firm on this policy. Insurance protects your purchase should any of these fates befall your package once it's left my hands, I highly recommend it.

Due to the fragile nature of my curiosity cabinets and their contents I am only able to ship these domestically.

Every country's import taxes (and or) duty fees are different and it is your responsibility alone to be aware of your own country's custom laws as well as your responsibility to pay the additional taxes & duty fees that goes along with importing merchandise from my country.
Falsifying shipping documents is illegal here in the US so please don't ask me to add a lesser value than to these documents than what the piece is actually worth.

Again, please note that I am not responsible for items that are lost, stolen or damaged that were not purchased with insurance. I am very firm on this policy.
