Sale: Invictus, were $48


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul.

1875, William Ernest Henley

In 1875 one of Henley’s legs required amputation due to complications arising from tuberculosis. Immediately after the amputation he was told that his other leg would require a similar procedure. He chose instead to enlist the services of the distinguished surgeon Joseph Lister, who was able to save Henley’s remaining leg after multiple surgical interventions on the foot. While recovering in the infirmary, he was moved to write the verses that became “Invictus”. This period of his life, coupled with recollections of an impoverished childhood, were primary inspirations for the poem.

Sale: The Mercenary, were $64

When this war is over might go back to Georgia
And settle down quiet somewhere
I’ll most likely pack up and head south for Chile
Heard tell there’s some trouble down there

–Steve Earle, Mercenary Song

Spoils of war earrings, deliciously asymmetrical and feature gorgeous raw ruby, Czech faceted glass, wire wrapping, found hardware, and two patina’d charms with gold leafing. I’ve heard tell that the charm on the double loop earring is an ancient ethnic fertility charm, but to that I cannot swear.

With french ear wires.

Sale: Rose Garden, were $58

Like a traditional 18th century garden of fragrant blooms, this pair of earrings feels timeless, sweet, and romantic. Featuring the most beautiful Czech rough-cut faceted glass beads, in an otherworldly rose color with a hint of iridescence and contrasting verdigris drops, these are at once a nod to Victorian and Edwardian eras as well as a fiercely modern bohemian gypsy affair. Rock these with everything in your wardrobe from a crisp white man-tailored shirt to frilly vintage dress. Flirty and sophisticated.

Medium weight with brass leverbacks. One of a kind.

Sale: M, were $52

These lovelies are brought to you by the letter M. Why? I don’t know; it just seemed fitting. Outstanding rough-cut bottle green (with very light iridescence) glass Czech beads combined with distressed crusted caps, ancient bone rings and dangling glass pearl findings, likely from the 1940’s. A decade-hopping tribal Victorian curation. One of a kind, of course.

Sale: Flamboyant, were $68

Luxuriant, exuberant, gorgeous. Yes, they are all that, beaded asymmetrical lovelies feature verdigris finished crown connectors, beautiful glass beaded rings, swarovski crystals, and off-the-hook baroque bead caps over misty lilac Picasso-finished faceted focals. These earrings manage to be both colorful and neutral all at once, great dressed up or down with just enough sparkle to wear every day. Check out all the photos to see how the color and sparkle shifts in the light, like magic.

Sale: September, were $68

With the most beautiful beads and findings, these decayed treasures evoke everything September; warm amber light, chilling blue skies and the fading gardens I love so much. Larger faceted beads are Czech and have a complex coloration that is both clouded and clear, shifting from opacity to translucency… firing golden amber when the light hits a certain way. Smaller tear-shaped faceted beads are semi-precious chalcedony (also called blue lace agate) in an otherworldly delicate shade. Hand distressed findings include amazing regal bead caps and rhinestone squaredells… which are rondelles that are square.

Sale: Elemental, were $48

Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sidereal. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven, as it were and from it the work that he desires to create flows into him. For such is the immensity of man that he is greater than heaven and earth.

Philipus Aureolus Paracelsus (1493 – 1541)

Seriously, all of that aside, I’d LIVE in these earrings. Victorian tribal bohemian elementals that feature unusual carved bone beads (and this is the only pair I seem to have) with black bone rings and smokey fiery faceted Czech glass… shifting and changes a glittery essence depending upon lighting conditions. Like you, right?


Sale: Amongst the Living, were $62

Dangerously cool industrial tribal earrings feature hand-crafted fired black clay (with bronzy metallic glaze) and caged metal blood red spike dangles. With a beautifully curated selection of bohemian glass and tribal beads (Czech/Indonesian). Treasures for the traveller of mind and body, she who walks amongst the living.

Brass leverbacks, which are really my personal favorite wire, but can be swapped out, just email.

Ethnographica 1

Adventurer earrings that feature heavily distressed vintage Afghani findings and truly vibrant neon red tassels encased in filigree. Bohemian chic that would look great with gauzy summer whites and warm winter wools, or just your basic T and jeans. These are made of unknown metals with non-precious stones. Medium weight with ear-wires are thicker than Western gauge (but wearable by anyone). Imperfections abound and are part of the charm.

Go tribal.
