Gothic Roots

When I started making jewelry 11 years ago, a lot of my designs were Gothic in nature. This was partially because I liked the aesthetic, partially because hematite beads were cheap, and partially because those designs sold well on eBay. There are still some Gothic designs in my shops, but lately I've been leaning a lot more towards steampunk.

However, earlier this month I got dressed up for a night on the town with Chris, and I ended up pretty Gothed out. Admittedly, there were steampunk influences, but I was wearing all black and grey, and it reminded me of how much I love the Goth aesthetic, and how I need to remember to use it more in my jewelry.

Along those lines, I present Beneath an October Moon, the latest addition to my Etsy shop.


  1. Thank you! She does really lovely work. Here's a link to her Etsy shop if you'd like to browse:

  2. That's a great focal! The guy who plays Odin in American Gods wears a tie-pin that is a sterling tree, from roots to tip.

  3. Thank you, Marilee! I wonder if there are any Yggdrasil tie-tacks on Etsy? Not that anyone that I know wears a tie...
