Gorgeous Gemstones with the Folksy December Elves

There's a new name for the Folksy daily listing club and for this month its the 'December Elves'! We have all been busy working away (like little elves) creating and listing new beautiful designs within our shops! 

The theme I have chosen for this week's featured designs are gorgeous gemstones, which make the perfect gift when you're looking for something special! 

The first two items below are my new designs;- no gemstones, but the first one has a black glass faceted teardrop bead and the second one has a vintage black glass stone which resembles an onyx gemstone!

What's new on Folksy - Shades of Black by the November Sparks

With week 2 of the Folksy November Sparks coming to an end, I have continued to list a new piece almost every day and have enjoyed looking through the jewellery and accessories created by other November Sparks! 

This week's post features my new gothic ring and some of my favourites from the November Sparks!  The choices below all have are all centred around the colour black, and some have a gothic edge, while others have been cleverly mixed with other shades to create stylish and stunning results!

Featuring Purrversia ~ The Bewitching Artisan

Sophisticated Vampire shoot by Purrversia. Custom Blood Vial Fangs Necklace by Vampire Wear

I am delighted to announce that today's post is all about 'Rachel' aka Purrversia, a highly creative talented artist, designer and model! 
Rachel finds inspiration from everything; nature, television, books, other artists and people!  She describes herself as always having a 'vivid imagination' and a bit of a dark side (having grown up with Elvira and Vincent Price), but she also has a penchant for cute and pretty things like Hello Kitty and sparkly gems!

  Rachel cites some of her favourite books as 'The Complete Tales and Poems' by Edgar Allan Poe, 'Alice In Wonderland' & 'Through The Looking Glass' by Lewis Carroll!  Her favourite supernatural creatures are vampires, although as a fan of the urban fantasy genre she also enjoys reading about witches, weres, fae and shapeshifters, and includes Laurell K. Hamilton, Kim Harrison and Kelley Armstrong amongst her favourite authors.  As one of Rachel's hobbies includes dressing up and cosplay, you won't be surprised to know that she appeared as as one of her favourite characters 'Anita Blake' alongside author Laurell K. Hamilton as part of the Dragon*Con Parade (2008)!

Rachel's family have a long history of crafting, sewing and other artistic passions, one of which is called 'Where The Little Things Are'. This delightful shop is run by Rachel and her Mother, where they create a unique range of jewellery and handcrafted accessories conjured up from their imagination, as well as welcoming custom orders!  

Red Cherry & Black Padded Crochet Hook Case

One of my favourites from this shop is the stunning Purple Fleur De Lis Necklace, and one of the best selling items is the Red Cherry & Black Crochet Hook Case, which folds into a pretty pouch (see above)!  You can find 'Where The Little Things Are' on Zibbet, Etsy, Artfire and Ebay!

 Lost Vampire Boone t-shirt

Rachel has another creative outlet, designing t-shirts, gifts and accessories via CafePress.  One example is her wickedly witty Lost Vampire 'Story of Boone' t-shirt. Other designs, quotes and links can be found
here! She also has another store on CafePress under the name Kaotic Rebel Designs, which is where you'll find her 'Get Pixed' Kim Harrison-approved shirt, as well as Pirate Pilates etc.

 Cherry Dress, Fallen Apple Photography

 Rachel also finds time to model and has worked with Fallen Apple Photography, Missconstrued Boutique, and is currently working with Etsy Artists NimblerGrove and Puppycatmeow modelling hair accessories.  Some of you may also recognise Rachel from my Halloween Dark Delights blog post, where she was wearing a customised 'Drink Me' Pendant and modelling at a recent Vampire shoot!  You can view more of Rachel's modelling work and her 'cosplay' characters on her facebook page here, or connect with her on twitter.

While Rachel intends to continue with her modelling and current activities, as a business entrepreneur, she intends to put her creative skills to good use through future projects, which include the expansion of her stores, extending her tee designing range, creating new artwork, jewellery and much more!

"They who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night."
Edgar Allan Poe "Eleonora"

Sophisticated Vampire shoot by Purrversia. Custom Gothic 'Drink Me' Blood Vial with Bat necklace by Miss Bohemia

I hope you have enjoyed reading all about the multi-talented Purrversia, who we will no doubt be seeing more of in the future!

Miss Bohemia's New Purple Collection

Miss Bohemia's Purple Collection

Purple (one of my favourite colours) is said to represent spirituality, magic and mystery!  Purple was also often associated with royalty (stemming back to a time when it was so expensive to produce, that usually only the wealthy could afford it). Created from a mix of red and blue, purple covers a wide spectrum ranging from lavender (named after a flower) to Amethyst (named after a gemstone and also represents the birthstone for February), to plum (named after a fruit).

 I have been working on a new selection of 'purple' jewellery and accessories and have featured a selection for you below :-) 

Can I tempt you with these decandent purple hues mixed with dark silver or gold (plated) to create sparkly gothic pieces, fairytale magic and romance.

Miss Bohemia's Halloween Dark Delights

Halloween is almost upon us and it's one of my favourite times of the year!  I love the mystery and magic surrounding Halloween,the spooky tales, horror films and Halloween parties!  It's also fun to see creepy costumes such as ghosts, witches, vampires and werewolves come to life! 

Miss Bohemia 'Drink Me' Blood Vial Pendant worn by Rachel/Purrversia (Model/Designer) at a Vampire Shoot

Black and orange are known as traditional colours, but other colours such as red are often popular at this time of year too!  I have compiled my favourite gothic pieces from my Miss Bohemia shop, most of which have hints of red (my favourite colour)!  Here you will find something for the wolves, the vamps, witches and some other gothic pieces!

Shop / product links below

My ideal Halloween Party guests would include True Blood's Eric, Alcide and Lafayette, Anne Rice's Vampires, The Lost Boys, Damon from Vampire Diaries and a few cool kick-ass witches!
Who would you invite to your Halloween Party?

Whether you are trick or treating, carving pumpkins, partying or staying in, I wish you all a good time :-)

Stay tuned for my mini Midweek Gothic Giveaway :-)
