International Girl Gone Local!!!

It’s true.  Es verdad.

I’ve happily been shipping my little coffin jewelry boxes all over the world for the past three years.  Today I am very pleased to announce they are now available locally.  The coffin jewelry boxes and a selection of jewelry by Buxom?Bones is now being featured at Dos Fridas right here in Wichita, Kansas.

Dos Fridas is located in the Nomar International District at 21st and Broadway in the extremely cool pie shaped building on the Southeast corner.  It is owned and operated by Lolly Hernandez and offers a wide variety of imports including pottery, wrought iron, tile, folkart, glassware, Dia de los Muertos items, and Sugar Skull classes.   Their mission is to provide a positive and fun experience about Culture, Art and Food.  Visit Dos Fridas facebook page to learn more.

My little dark corner of the world…

I’ve attended or worked various fairs in the years past but this weekend was my first experience with having a booth at a craft fair.  The temperatures outside were ridiculous so it was great to be indoors.

My mom and I shared a booth and we’ve been working the last few weeks to get our tables and displays ready.  I’m pretty pleased with how my banners turned out but I think they might draw more attention if they were hanging above the tables.

We’ll be back for the November 10th, 2012 Craftapalooza Fair in just a few short months.  See you then!

The Z O M B I E S are here!

They’ve been in my sketch book for what seems like forever.  They’ve been on my workbench in parts and pieces for what seems like ages.  Which of course is appropriate for Zombies, but they’ve finally got their act together.

The Z O M B I E S are finally here.  Nom-nom…

Check out my newest jewelry – a Zombie End Times Necklace and Keychain, plus some super cool Zombie buttons.  Please drop by and visit my Etsy shop to check out the new Zombie stuff (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BuxomBones?section_id=7708423).  And while you’re there check out my other cool Gothic stuff!

Newest Collection: Gunmetal Skulls

The moment I saw these little skulls I was enthralled with them.  I’ve seen them in gold and silver but the newer gunmetal just called out to me to make something from them.  And so I have!  I’ve been busy with learning new chainmaille patterns and wanted to combine the two elements.  I created four new items and just listed them – more are sure to come!  Click the image to see the listings.

I’m not an undertaker but…

Lately I’ve been wondering about the life of an undertaker in the Wild, Wild West.  I’ve been super busy in the studio making my little coffin keepsake jewelry boxes.  I fill one coffin (order) and then there’s a shootout and I’m working to (ful) fill more coffins.  It’s a good thing, believe me, but it’s interesting to walk in and see the studio while the work is in progress.

Who would have guessed?

Certainly not me.  However, it seems that Goth Girls need love too!  My miniature coffins have been flying right off the shelf.  It’s been a busy season for my little coffins and they’ve been getting lots of love by being featured in several treasuries.  Here’s the latest.  I love the collection “Fear of the Dark” and am proud to be included in a treasury of so many wonderfully dark items!
