Burton-esque Drawings : Ayo Soluade

If you're a fan of Tim Burton, you're going to like the digital prints from Ayo Soluade. The drawings are dark and creepy and a bit mesmerizing. Soluade uses color too, but it comes off cold and a bit off-kilter. I like it. The shop is AyoSoluade88.

Halloween Nightfall
Eerie Cemetery
Merry Halloween
The Beautifully Chaotic
The Wolf Man
Lady Mad Hatter
These pieces are so interesting to look at. I haven't even shown you the Burton fan art which features lots of your favorite characters. Try to take a look at the shop today.

Gems & Baubles for the Earth Witch: Pieces of Jayde

There is something about wearing a piece of jewelry that has weight to it that I find comforting- unless it's swinging around my neck and constantly hitting my desk and I hurl it off, but I digress. I do like holding metal and gems in my hand and feeling the power emanating from it. Maybe I'm an earth witch? Maybe I'm on the spectrum? Who knows. I'm confident in one thing- I love the jewelry from Pieces of Jayde designed by Jayde McAloon.

Skeleton Hand on Crystal Quartz Pendant
Black Kyanite Crystal Witch Broom Necklaces
Deaths Head Moth Pendant
Porcelain Hand & Crystals Necklace
Carved Skull Ring
Oak Leaf with Third Eye Necklace
All of McAloon's pieces are this gorgeous. You need to check out the shop.

Prints of Mythology, Magic & the Macabre: Print Is Dead

I could swear I've featured the illustrations of Elyssa Long on this blog, but I'm damned if I can find the post.  Maybe I haven't? Well, it's your gain then because Long's prints are magical. She offers limited edition, Gliclée, and digital prints - something for every budget. The shop is Print Is Dead.

Limited Edition Skeleton Hand & Bird Risograph Print
Glicée Print of Snake and Flowers
Palmistry Lino Print
Death's Head Moth Lino Print
Plague Doctor Digital Print
Bleeding Heart Valentine Card
I failed to mention that there are also cards, pocket mirrors, pins, and even a few t-shirts in the shop. There, now you know.

Stained Glass Jewelry: ArtKvarta

ArtKvarta is an artisan collective in Estonia making stained glass jewelry. The designs have a very modern look, but many of the pieces echo the dark world that we love so much. I like the streamlined look. It's easy to overdo the baroque and gothic look.

Stained Glass Pumpkin Necklaces
Evil Eye Necklaces
Moon Phase Necklace
Spider Necklaces
Black Spider Earrings
Moon Rings
You need to check out the full range of pieces in this shop. I love so many of them!
