Re-Visiting Osteal, Provider Of Scavenged Talismans

It was way back in 2012 - the year before Wyrd Words & Effigies launched - that I encountered Osteal, provider of earthy talismans from woodswoman Amanda Joe. I remember I bought a deer vertebrae necklace from her (thus starting my obsession with crafting my own jewellery from bones) and wore it to death. My… Continue reading Re-Visiting Osteal, Provider Of Scavenged Talismans

My Best Wyrd Buys & Gifts Of 2015

2015 was quite a light year when it came to actually buying anything that's really worth talking about. Many months went by when I didn't see much more than the four walls of my bedroom, and treating myself or getting something that I needed rarely even registered in my mind. Hell, I could hardly find… Continue reading My Best Wyrd Buys & Gifts Of 2015

Interview : Helena Perminger Of Sphæra

I fell upon contemporary art and jewellery emporium Sphæra while browsing through the list of creatives attending the DRK MSS autumn market that took place in October in Stockholm. The attraction to Swedish artist Helena Perminger's enigmatic jewellery was immediate and powerful. I knew that I had to talk to her, and hear the stories… Continue reading Interview : Helena Perminger Of Sphæra

The Society Of Strays

(They do have other works in their store, so be sure to take a look.) The animals once cradled by the bones and skulls you see here… Continue reading The Society Of Strays

Anatomical Crockery

If I had some spare cash floating around, I'd stock up on this anatomical crockery for 'the bottom drawer.'  Nothing says 'I'm weird and proud of it' better than plates and cups decorated with bones and body parts. Get these beauties from the oddly titled Folded Pigs - re-purposed restaurant ware.

In The Spine

It's no secret that I'm kind of a lot in love with Dellamorte & Co. I've lost count of the amount of times I've featured their wares on this blog. They're the sort of store where I would, quite literally, buy every single thing. I think they could work a bit on their presentation with… Continue reading In The Spine

Animal Skeleton Pillows

'Come on over and check out my room. I have pillows with animal skeletons on them...' is what I would say if I had these beauties casually strewn across my bed. Who would have thought that someone would one day think, 'you know what? I'm going to make a pillow with the skeleton of a… Continue reading Animal Skeleton Pillows
