This week’s challenge: make Visual Kei pieces that do NOT contain spikes, for my customers that want something a little more understated and less in-your-face.
I was rooting around through my vintage stash and came across a 3-strand vintage chain necklace I’d made awhile back. I decided it was doing nothing for me as is, and set about looking for something that might match it that wasn’t acrylic spikes…and found nothing.
So I dug a little deeper and dusted off a box of random jewelry stuff I never got around to unpacking and found some really awesome hematite pendants, and decided that because the chain was so elaborate that’s all they really needed.
Simple, but edgy and elegant and rather versatile. 🙂 They can be Visual Kei or they can go on a more simple wardrobe. I like that the pendants have taken a little bit of a beating, it just makes them look edgier. 🙂
These are up for sale in the Etsy shop! They are $15 each. One of each shape is available:
I also found some really awesome vintage buttons at the thrift store this week that had a dark, gothy look. Because they stood out so well on their own, I decided rings would be the best way to showcase them.
These are also up in the Etsy shop, $5 each. They sit on silvertone adjustable ring bands, that are a size 6 unadjusted. They’re quite comfy. I wear one on my index finger, adjusted to a size 9. Again, one of each is avalable:
More non-spiked creations are coming. Stay tuned!
