Afterlife Artwork

Posted in anatomy, craft, jewelry, taxidermy with tags , , , on August 27, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Afterlife Artwork sells unique CRUELTY FREE (the artist is very clear that no animals are harmed for the making of any of these pieces) anatomical jewelry, featuring bits and bones of many varieties.

The rattlesnake skeletons look great:

Knowing that these creatures were already deceased is important to me (I get very upset when animals suffer for art of any kind). In this case, these displays become loving tributes to the gorgeous inner workings of our fellow critters. She is making use of that which would otherwise be discarded or rot, showcasing these miraculous tiny bits of nature.

The Lysine Contingency

Posted in anatomy, craft, jewelry with tags , , on July 18, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I was quite taken aback when I saw The Lysine Contingency, because I have, in fact, crafted almost every single one of these jewelry designs (right down to the settings and chains) on my own in previous years! Great minds!

All of their designs are just my style. I think I’d wear absolutely everything in their catalog.

Dinosaurs! I’d forgotten all about dinosaurs in my own hobby creations!

Delftia

Posted in craft, jewelry, science with tags , , on April 26, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Not long ago, I had a dream that I was crafting a sacred geometry shape out of silver wire in my (hopefully soon to actually exist) metalwork area at home. This led me to a search a few things and stumble upon Delftia .

My favorite piece in the collection:

Here’s one I’ve yet to see anywhere else (though I can’t say I’ve searched much hypercube jewelry).

Great jewelry for science geeks in this Etsy shop.

The Faerie Market: Moth Clip

Posted in body decoration, craft, creatures, jewelry, nature with tags , , , , on February 8, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Sometimes “there’s a bug in your hair!” isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

While pricey, I admire the craftsmanship on this Emperor Gum Moth Hair Clip.

I have a bizarre habit of considering accessories according to what unusual museum exhibit I’d hypothetically be likely to wear them to…plenty of entomological displays came to mind for this one.

Would you wear pretty bugs, birds and beasts in your hair?

Halloween Countdown: Bat Pin

I so terribly want this. There are others as well.

However, I’m trying not to spend bits of money on myself, being unemployed due to illness and all. Maybe one of you will procure this treasure for yourself!

Now this pieces tells a story. A splattery, goopy story (done in fuzzy felt). How fun! Other flavors are available…
