A new direction

For a long time I've wanted to do an accessories line for Rocky the Zombie.

So here it is...

This range was a long time in planning and I wasn't going to go the easy (dirty) route of importing cheap mass-produced plastic from halfway across the world to make it, and neither was I willing to settle for anything being less than perfect.

The ball chains are stamped 925 silver, and 20 inches long with lobster clasp fastenings... sourcing those was the easy part.

As for the charms, I found many fimo artists quite easily, but it was a lot harder to find one who's work genuinely impressed me, and who only settles for the highest level of perfection in every tiny piece... and luckily I found them.

Supporting handmade - CHECK!
Buying Local - CHECK!

Perfect product - DOUBLE CHECK!

They're listed in my Artfire Store. Underneath each picture I have provided the direct link to each necklaces page.

Rocky Van Gory Bags

I've been collaborating with the very talented Brooke Heavey, who is the designer and seamstress at Brooke Van Gory Designs.

This Zombie Lovers Handbag is available in my etsy shop right now. These bags don't stick around very long before being snapped up, and it's one of a kind, so if you love it.. you have one chance to buy.

Brooke Van Gory bags were recently featured by Offbeat Bride, and In Love With Handmade. Also this review by Paisley and Pretties shows the diversity of available designs (and the coolest rainbow stitching!), and how any bag can be custom made to suit you.

SHOP HERE for this specific bag.
