My first line of pendants for Black Pearl has officially launched!

Fiona Deffenbaugh, creater of Black Pearl, and I  started talking about creating jewellery based on tattoos almost exactly a year ago and the first collection is finally on sale.The collection consists of eight original designs, each of which I hand engrave individually onto pendants to create miniature, one-off pieces of art. Each design is influenced by my tattooing, from classic tattoo imagery of the swallows and gypsy girls to Indian mehndi patters and Mexican sugar skulls.

Each pendant is completely unique, just as a tattoo!

 

The collection is available to buy through my webstore NOW, and through the Black Pearl online store.
