“There’s something ironically comforting about the silent stillness of a graveyard. Names, messages, thoughts and remembrances so deftly etched, set in stone. Beveled into rustic grey rock, meant to stand the test of time, weather, change. The permanence of something physically inscribed in chunks of earth acts as an ultimatum. But does it? After decades of summer heat, autumnal winds, silver twilights, frozen winters and the resulting spring growth, something happens. These once crisp markings start to fade, to chip, to disintegrate. Statuesque, kingly tombs evolve into sallow shells, as forgotten as a flitting memory. Scattered in haphazard patterns, almost littering the fiery fall landscape, a powerless ghostly tribe remains. Questions surface, as the space falls short of living up to its forever strong. Which souls occupy this space, and what are their stories? Lost forever, like dust in the wind. Nothing is permanent.”

Tarot, tombs and trinkets – there’s no certain rhyme or reason, and that’s really the point. A Nirvana-esque aesthetic was applied to styling and staging, mixed with a good amount of my signature gypsy. Nothing matches, per say, but sort of indirectly creates a punk rock commonality. Starring in this piece are my Third Eye Suncatchers, Bohemian Rhapsody and Moonchild Necklaces, and my Free Bird Necklace. Thrown in are more layering pieces (what else?) using a mix of crystals and gemstones. Kyanite, druzy, agate, quartz, goldstone all add their very own mysticism. When complimented by Swarovski’s elegance, the earthly offerings become something out of a mermaid’s treasure chest. Contrasting this against a luscious fall palette of crimson, clove and pumpkin, plus gritty cement and the weathered stone of a cemetery, creates a strangely artistically-satisfying situation. When in doubt, grunge it up.

A special thanks to my models, Karlee and Nikoletta.
