The Jabberwocky - Cameo Necklace

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
-The Jabberwocky, by Lewis Carroll

I've always loved Alice in Wonderland. I love how quirky and fantastic that world is, and I like to draw inspiration from that world when it comes to my style. The deep reds, the striking gold, and the pale ivory of the cameo all come together to make a beautiful piece for anyone's wardrobe, especially a fellow Alice in Wonderland lover.

Target Markets and Where to Find Them.

How do you pick a target market? Well, that was a question I've been asking myself for quite some time. Who is my target market? What does my target market want? How do I appeal to my target market? Who is my target market anyway??
The answer was actually very simple: my target market is me. I make the things I like, the things I would wear. So my target market are people just like me! People that love Halloween and spooky goodies.
Finding your target market can be relatively simple if you know who you are and what you want to create. The large majority of my jewelry is made with Halloween-ish iconography, such as skulls and cute spiderwebs. I like darker colors and I prefer cute over scary. Once I pinpointed what i enjoyed making, finding my market was no problem. You have to be able to fill a niche when selling online, and once you find it, run with it.

Green Jewelry for St. Patrick's Day!

St. Patrick's Day is coming up, and wearing green on the 17th has become rather important. No one wants to get pinched, and there's always that one pesky person who feels they need to carry out the tradition. So keep the pinchers at bay by getting adorable green jewelry from The Flying Skeleton!

Product Feature: Spider Skull Bracelet

This sparkly bracelet is available for sale on my Etsy. I'm really proud of the way this bracelet came out, those beads contrast against the charms so well! These beads sparkle inside or out because they're crackled glass. The green beads are bright green and they're pretty big, but not so big that they overpower the spider and skull charms. This is the perfect bracelet for people that like quirky, odd things or people that love dark sparkles!

The Flying Skeleton's logo and updates.

I finally have a logo for The Flying Skeleton! I know, I know, what does a picture of an octopus from a textbook have to do with a flying skeleton? The answer? Absolutely nothing. I love octopuses, and I couldn't think of a single way to incorporate a flying skeleton into my jewelry company's logo. But an octopus? I could think of exactly what I wanted it to look like. So instead of going for something obvious, that made actual sense, I went for something more 'random', out-there, and quirky. I think that fits my jewelry style better, anyway.
I've made some slight changes to the blog, mainly removing the bat and heart dividers. After looking at my blog design for quite sometime, I decided that those made things just too busy, and I wanted more simplicity in the design so people would concentrate on my product, my handmade jewelry.
I'm working as hard as ever to get my ArtFire and Etsy shops opened up! The ArtFire shop will be opening first, watch for that! I'm so excited about this, I hope you guys are too!!!

Your waiting has not been in vain.

I'm working my tail off [I wish I had a tail to work off, alas I am tailless] to get my Etsy and ArtFire shops up and running. They should be up and running smoothly by the middle of February! Very, very exciting. I tried to upload some photos for your viewing pleasure, but unfortunately Blogger and Flickr are not cooperating today. So here's a link to my Flickr. Enjoy!
