Human bones rain down at Whitby after church yard land slide.

Some more photos from the Bram Stoker International Film Festival fashion show 2012 taken at Whitby, UK. the celebrated town of Dracula and wonderful for all followers of goth.  Whitby has recently been in the news for its terrible land slides in the graveyard where reportedly “human bones were raining  down” on to the cottages and gardens below. A very sad scene for such a historic and beautifully situated Church. Link to the story on the BBC below.

Two New Cut Throat Razor Necklaces

Due to a great amount of interest in my cut throat razor necklaces I have made two more and here they are.  Thank you for your interest in these.

Made from disassembled vintage straight razors and adorned with little artifacts telling a story.  Don’t cut your own throat on the dance floor!

Bloodthirsty Cut Throat Razor Necklace

1888 Catch Me If You Can Cut Throat Razor Necklace

Cas from Engineers of Desire

Model; Cas wearing the cut throat razor I made for her. Leather corset and clothingmade by Engineers of Desire.com

DISCLAIMER; I have done my best to blunt the razor and protect your delicate necks from the blade using resin but take care when you wear this it is a real blunted blade. I take no responsibility for cut throats on the dance floor!

Handmade in Winchester, the ancient capital of Wessex and the Kingdom of England. Winchester is a unique heritage city just an hour south west of London, with a magnificent historic Cathedral, surrounded by fabulous rolling countryside and pretty Hampshire villages.

lace choker ~ The Eye of the Nautilus

Votes for Women ~ Suffragette brooches and chokers.

During the early 20th century the Women’s Social and Political Union in England sold similar portraits of Emmeline Pankhurst to raise funds for their political movement. They wanted to be involved in the running of the country and they wanted to be treated as equals to men.

These pieces of Jewellery are created as a one off to celebrate Votes for Women and the suffrage movements. Wear with pride.

I have added ribbons, small antique buttons and beads   –  From 1908 the WSPU adopted the colour scheme of purple, white and green: purple symbolised dignity, white purity, and green hope. These three colours were used for banners, flags, rosettes and badges.  It is a popular myth that the colours were green, white and violet, in order to spell GWV as an acronym for ‘Give Women Votes’

Telescope mini tophats and binocular necklace.  I love using these small opera glasses in my jewellery.  I love the worn appearence of these.

The Flutter Of Bloody Wings.

Ruby red heart necklace ~ The flutter of bloody wings.

I don’t often make earrings, as I am fussy with the design of my own ones I wear, but I just loved these smaller luxury glass bead hearts and wanted to make something with them.  They are hand blown “one offs” and are organic and individually shaped.  This is a range of earings….  The Flutter of Bloody Hearts….
