I have memories of myself as a little girl playing in my mother’s jewelery box. Of course she mainly only had pins because she is allergic to metal, but nonetheless, you couldn’t keep me out of there.
Fast forward many years, and you’ll find the woman who enjoys wearing baubles, but with my creative style it can be difficult to find inexpensive, good quality, artistic pieces to wear.
This is where Gothic Innocence came in. I mean really, just look at this lovely piece that was handmade in Minnesota. It captures my style, and even has a nice edge to it. There is a wonderful balance of fun and elegance in this piece, and this matches my personality to a ‘T’.
I might be 30 (Oh yes the big 3-0), but I don’t look it (and don’t y’all dare tell me I do, Ha!), and I sure as heck don’t dress (also reads act) it. My style isn’t really a ‘style’ as it’s a mixture of comfort, with funny t-shirts, or boho type clothing. I mix and match a lot ( think funny t-shirt and long flowing patchwork skirt, or leggings, leg warmers, and a flowing top), so I need jewelery pieces that can jump with my clothing.
If I had the time (what is time?), and a lot of money I would totally be into cosplay. This is one area I feel the jewelry could really shine. But teens of all genres (or do we still call them cliques?) would love this jewelery which is handmade by a company called Gothic Innocence. This small company is run by a family of five, and they just happen to share my love for simplicity and gothic culture. To top it off, being a huge fan of upcycled anything, they try to reuse what they can to lower their footprint. Be sure to check out their Facebook page for plenty of examples of their work. They can also customize many of their pieces for an even more unique flair! Currently they say they have over 40 different color combinations available in their line.
I still love the pendant I received. I’ve actually been wearing it on a regular basis instead of my jade square. It has a nice steampunk edge to it, and if you know me at all, then you know I love everything about steampunk. The literature, the clothes, the culture, yes I love it all!
To the left is my photo shoot for my book cover. While I’m not thrilled with any photograph of myself, I had decided to wear my bauble. Sadly no one caught that it wasn’t straight until after, so I’ll have to repeat the process, but I’ve decided to keep wearing the necklace. The next shoot will hopefully go nicely, and the pendant will pop!
Gothic Innocence is a company I can easily support. The items are made right here in the US, and they are crafted with love and care. The prices for their lovely pieces fit right into any budget too. I’m going to get a locket next as I’ve always wanted one, but never found one I really liked.
As a member of Karma Media I received this product from Gothic Innocence in hopes of obtaining a review. All opinions are my own.
