Bracelet I was working on tonight. Not sure if I’m 100% happy with it :/ But it is very jangly! I think the beads would have worked better with a different color jump ring, i don’t think the silver is doing much here. Bronze or brass might have been better.

Black Widow Necklace

Custom designed, hand-crafted with high quality anodized aluminum jump rings. This was a very organic design, the result of just playing with the different rings I had available at the time. I’ve had the glass bead for years and it was absolutely perfect to finish this piece off. Certainly a striking piece!

Available on Etsy!

I call this design my “gypsy anklet” - helm chain with dangling byzantine and glass beads. It’s got really beautiful movement when worn, and the glass discs catch the light for a nice glow.

Available in my etsy shop!

Hello from the Purple Otter!

Finally getting around to uploading some shots from my booth at Lancaster Pride last weekend - I had a great time and met some great people. It was definitely a huge success and an awesome first show for me!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and said hello! Keep your eyes peeled for some new merchandise I’ll be putting up in the Etsy Store very shortly. And if you haven’t already, find us on Facebook!
