Keep it handmade, keep it original

As most of you probably know, I like to handmake a lot of my outfits, jewelry, and other what's-a-mah-bobbits. I find that my sense of style is not easily attained (or cheap either), so I usually resort to hand making my items to keep everything original and unique looking.

I think this is just what we need more of nowadays, people being original and creative; by doing so, people will be expressing themselves rather than just wearing whatever outfits a magazine tells you to wear.

My friend recently started an Etsy and her designs are really unique. Sometimes she makes fairy dust necklaces that any Ophelia would be glad to wear, other times she makes some really gnarly gothic demon chokers on black velvet with chains. She made the necklace that I bought a week ago, and I'm soooooo happy with it!


I love it! A black lace-and-velvet choker with a dangling heart filled with spiderwebs (and a hidden skull) with dangling crosses AND chains!!! FOR $15!!!!!

As soon as it was posted, I bought it. It's so me! And it's handmade and completely one of a kind, so I KNOW there won't ever be a lace-and-velvet choker this awesome.

The other morning, I was woken up early and didn't have too much time to get ready, so I wore it with a casual outfit and lurve the way it changes what I'm wearing.

I already feel gothier!

I woke up really early and felt like Death, so I did the little Neil Gaiman's Death spiral under my right eye.

I'm also wearing my heartagram underneath it. :3

I'm so happy with it. It automatically changes any black shirt and pants, AND makes my neck look marvelously Victorian when I pull my hair up.

Here is the link to her Facebook page where she posts most of her designs:

She usually posts her stuff on her Facebook first, but here's her etsy too:

She's a really wonderful, creative, and kind person, and one of the most beautiful people I've ever met. So if you want something done especially for you, I'm sure her creative mind can fulfill your request.

Do you know any creative goths with etsy's or companies? Please share! <3!
