I was inspired by my favourite evil ladies from books and films. I have always liked the evil characters the most. They seem to have more motivation, ambition, back story and depth than the heroes. And of course they all have killer style!
Yes, I took the features of my favourite villains such as dark eyes and dress styles and combined them with elements of folk art such as Day Of The Dead style teeth, ornate flowers and tattoos. I took great delight in adding small details to each character such as the deadly nightshade plants on Wednesdays dress, the crow on the Sorceresses chest and the castle in the Evil Queens crown.
I didn’t set out to use set colours but as I worked on each of the pieces I found I was using the same emerald greens, deep purple and lilac and dark red and maroon.
I created this entire collection digitally. I sketch out the initial design in pencil in my sketchbook and then scan the sketch into Manga Studio and start drawing using my Cintiq tablet.
The new collection launches on 14th July at 8am and it includes 5 designs in brooches and pendants.

Jewellery and earrings and lapel pins and handbags are not going to change the world! They are just things. Things we wear and things we own and like. But still just things. But what if the things we own are full of meaning? What if they can change the way someone feels about something?
