New Work

Corset Rings

The spiral laced one in the top center was tricksy as the holes have to be uneven for the spiral lacing to line up. There are very few people in the world who would notice or care about this!

Hey Karen! How are you?! I just wanted to say that your new corset rings are fabulous! Is that silver PMS and you've somehow antiqued it?! It looks great!

Hi Erin! Thank you so much! Yes, they are made with the PMC silver. The antiqued effect is done by immersing them in a solution of liver of sulphur. (Stinky, but darkens them and is non-toxic). Hope you are having a great fall, isn't the mild weather blissful??
