Weekly Visual Kei Finds – August 5, 2012
It’s time for another weekly round of Visual Kei picks!
This week I’m featuring a lot more pieces. 🙂 This week they all came from Etsy, since I spend so much time on Etsy working on my shop and promoting other Etsians’ work.
I’m starting off this week with a men’s bracelet by ZIPPERjewelry. As their name implies, they make a variety of amazing pieces with zippers, everything from this simple bracelet to beautiful, elaborate arm pieces. This pieces is from their 2013 collection.
This Gothic Fleur de Lis necklace by London Particulars caught my eye almost immediately. This beautiful stamped piece is a wonderful accent to a visual kei suit. Based out of Seattle, their main specialty is steampunk jewelry. However, many of their pieces would also work with a more VK/darker wardrobe.
Sideways crosses are the IT jewelry of the summer. Celebrities everywhere are sporting them, including Jennifer Lopez, Kourtney Kardashian, and TV host Kelly Rippa. This brooch from Little Mizz Kitty is a great piece that is not only Visual Kei but keeps you right on trend, and for just £3 it’s too good to pass up!
Visual Kei isn’t just limited to black. These turquoise striped pants by Beast Wares are simply fabulous! They’ll look good with a T-shirt and work beautifully with a jacket, making them a great transitional piece. Please not the Etsy listing is for Extra Large, but they are available in other sizes. 🙂
If you’re looking for a statement piece consider this necklace by Skully and Fang. This is a very new shop, having only opened July 30th, but this shop already is building a nice inventory of gothic and visual kei pieces.
And last but certainly not least, let’s go in a more punk-inspired direction for the last pick. 🙂 I ADORE this studded bag by Rogue City Killers. It has a beautiful red lining and tons of studs and buckles, but what I like most about this bag is that it is made from recycled leather jackets, so it’s eco-freindly. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this picks as much as I did! These designers have many more amazing items in their Etsy shops so be sure to check them out!
