Skulls and bones...

...admittedly they're not for everyone. But there is something about this new jewelry by Houstonite, Sarah Johnson, that I just adore. It is sentimental and studied yet a bit magical. It evokes history and death yet the continuation of life as well. They remind me of little Joseph Cornell boxes in pendant form. Sarah uses intricate porcelain doll parts, tiny bird skulls and bones, watch parts and tattered fabric to create her beautiful little vignettes. They are one-of-a-kind and Blackmail just happens to be the only purveyor of this collection. Take look and give us a call if you want one...they won't last long...512.326.7670
