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.

Although I’ve seemed pretty quiet over the past few months, I’ve actually been busy working on two big new projects, a great collaboration, some new artworks, and a new direction in my work. Not to mention lots of new tattoos which will be going up into the galleries soon!

I can’t go into too much detail right now, but stay patient, keep checking on here for more regular updates and sneak peeks!

Having tattooed my best girl, Edwin London’s own Niesh last week with an epic Wu Tang tattoo, Edwin Europe featured us on their blog…
