Listed just this morning! My newest necklace features graduated square-cut chandelier crystals with pearls and little faceted pink champagne droplets all heavily gilt in silver filigree. Snatch up this design soon because these don't tend to stick around for long... #altaregodesign #altaregofashion #altarego #alterego #chandeliercrystal #crystalpower #crystalmagic #crystals #pinkchampagne #champagne #pearls #pearlswereherfavorite #neovictorianjewelry #artnouveau #artdeco #nouveauvictorian #shabbychic #repurposed #repurposedjewelry #handmadeinhumboldt #humboldtartists #humboldtjewelry #jewelrymakers #jewelry #statementjewelry #antiques
She was sealed beneath glass yesterday afternoon. I am so proud of her. โ™พ Imagery: Longing/loss. Materializing pain into beauty. Baring ones soul to the bone. Ability to play easily in emotional depths. Waves waring down earth and smoothing sharp edges. Choosing vulnerability/Choosing softness. Appreciation for what is most precious. Up for viewing this September at @bcuzcoffee in Old Town Eureka. โ™พ #altaregodesign #altaregoart #taxidermyart #taxidermy #bonecollection #bonearticulation #vultureculture #taxidermyartist #roguetaxidermy #illustration #micron #watercolor #acrylicpainting #acrylics #art #artistsofhumboldt #mermaid #siren #seasiren #oceancreatures #theabyss #catharsis #pearls #pearlswereherfavorite #softness #lightsurroundsus

Before flying to her forever home! I loved everything I learned from this design, and hope to create similar designs... Maybe crowns... With branch textures. I'm excited to share as things unfold...๐Ÿ’š Her sister piece is in the works- to customize this design for your very own, inquire via PM. Let's make some magic happen! . #altaregodesign #treebranches #pearlswereherfavorite #necklace #lightsurroundsus #designersofinstagram #pearls #chic #handmade #707jewelry #humboldtjewelrymakers #humboldtartists
Closer look at these intricate details. I saw these beads and immediately fell hard for their delicate, complex colors and their significance. Purple is a mystical color, while peach is a soft, neutralizing color. What I gather from these two shades being drawn together is to 'Use your fierce magic with Grace in everything that you do'. Instead of approaching things like a thistle thorn, be gentle, to yourself and others. The pearls also seal that imagery as we all know how these marvels of nature are formed.. Sometimes gentle is how to gain traction with certain situations, especially endeavors of self love ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œ . #altaregodesign #altaregofashion #peach #purple #mystical #gentle #practicelovedaily #selflove #colormagic #colormeaning #colorfulgoths #vintage #vintagejewelry #shabbychic #chic #statementjewelry #statementnecklace #pearls #jewelrydesign #necklace #cameo #Czechglass #pearlswereherfavorite #closeup #picoftheday #jewelrydesignersofinstagram #humboldtjewelry #707artists #norcalartists #norcalartisans

Low light porch selfie after an amazing evening of talented burlesque (you know who you are ๐Ÿ–ค) & comedy... And maybe an act that had both!

I'm so smitten with genuine pearls lately. There's just something feminine and classy about them that thrills me to my core. It's funny to think that pearls are just a misfortunate event that is then transformed over time into something beautiful. Quite a profound statement. The beauty and symbolism in nature is a fascinating thing. ยฐ ยฐ ยฐ #altaregodesign #pearlswereherfavorite #crystaljewelry #mousebones #vertebrae #vultureculture #wearabletaxidermy #handmadeinHumboldt #jewelrydesign #genuinepearls #altbride #ooak #beunique #mementomori #macabre

Repost of @isabellaspoon in her new chandelier crystal & vertebrae necklace. Shortly after picking up her new piece I found out that she works at the very shop I had gotten my crystals from and would be going to show the owner of @daisydrygoodsvintage the necklace I made from beauties found at their incredible little shop. I am so glad she reached out and love her authentic vintage style!
