SKULL


white resin skull candle holder $25au RRP from Corky Saint Clair















black ceramic skull candle holder $75au RRP from Corky Saint Clair. limited stock


SKULL


I kinda want this Eternal Life Skull ring
























I've always liked this Disney Couture Peter Pan Skull Ring - it looks like a chuppa chup as a ring. (Sorry I keep going on about Disney Couture - I'm not actually sponsored by them!)











Of course both of these pale next to the Grand Daddy of all Jewelled Skulls

RIGHTS

"Legally, the case for allowing such bag searches is flimsy. Without probable cause (which in practice usually means someone will have to have seen you take something off the shelf of the shop and put it in your bag) the shop has no right to detain you or to look in your bag. However, they can ask to look in your bag. You then have the right to refuse. If you refuse the shop can then ask you to not come back to the shop again, but they have no way of actually compelling you to open your bag for them."

from White Rose

No one except a police officer has the right to search your bags, even if a prominent sign states that this is a condition of entry.

I think JB HI-FI are the worst offenders of implementing this policy. Can you imagine trying to walk out of one of their stores without being searched? They are really aggressive about it.

BLOW


cute little wood and steel harmonica necklace on a lovely 80cm chain
$30au RRP from Corky Saint Clair

ANALOG

Recently you told your little music nazi friend that you were buying a record player. His squirrelly little face expressed disdain as apparently you're not lo-fi enough.

Check out how cute this unit is, why wouldn't you buy it? It takes two double C batteries making it portable, so you can take it to hipster picnics this summer at Edinburgh gardens.

now you just need to buy some cute little records. i think it only takes 7". kinda like your sceney little friend

MONSTER

I found this while cyber stalking a former lover.
nice photo

SHINY



Some of his stuff is kinda nice - I like the spinning rings.

OWL




That's my owl ring in photo number two. I don't see the similarities, apart from the fact they are both owls.


The last ring is a weirder, cooler version. Why wouldn't you want a pentagram on your ring for a slight wiccan twist?

HIPPY

What accessories to wear with my ironic hippy look summer 010?

How about
"A BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE STONE GEODE SLICE ROCK SAMPLE LARGE PENDANT WITH GOLD AROUND IT AND ZIPPER, CHAIN WITH TEARDROP GOLD CHARMS NECKLACE. 14K GOLD PLATED 28" CHAIN NECKLACE. VERY NICE!

CONDITION:EXCELLENT
HALLMARKS/MAKER'S MARK:VVV ON ZIPPER

MEASUREMENTS:28" TOTAL LENGTH CHAIN, SHELL IS 2" LONG X 1" WIDE
This is from a local houston estate of a world traveler, the estate was near the johnson spacecenter--NASA"

Well if NASA is involved, I can trust it's a high quality item! Maybe even cosmologically blessed? Guess I'll find out.


Another option: a fair trade pan pipe necklace. How funny would be that to wear that out? Put it on a nice chain and it'd be kinda cute.












Of course a better option would be tracking down a Disney Couture Panpipe necklace. They seem to sold out everywhere. ;o(

COLOUR


I'm going totally psychadelic this summer. For me it's all about rainbows again. Check out this cute Spag Flation top I bought.

Their manifesto seems to be written in rainbowanese

"Its a new line, inspired by stagnation, stagflation and two spag eating caucasians own little irey imagi-nation! We like a good pack of spag when the pennies pinch you. We like simple staples handmade with the super quality RHLS Stamp of Fuck YEAH!
Better than american apparel (Receive the quality you paid for, cut the frump, shove off the fraying.. the wimpy seams)! Handmade by the designers themselves (out of salvaged sweatshirts/ deadstock designer sweatshirt fleece and ts mommy!) Limited editions - CREW SWEATSHIRT.
Technicolor! Gradient moves sidewaze up that hot torso of yours in pennant shapes! Grab this one quick fellas and ladies- its extra special
AND ONE SLEEVE IS WHITE?!!! ONE BLACK?!! damn RHLSers you make brains go ka-pow!
TERRORIST APPROVED! I am blowing up the statue of liberty!! (EASY CHEESE) Im flying planes into the space needle. I AM PLANTING GRASS IN DOLLY WOOD! I am sneaking veggie dogs into Coney Island."

I also got this rainbow tie dyed tee that I'll get my tailor to take in to make it more of a slim fit cut.

PANPIPE


Disney Couture total design genius - pan pipe earrings!

OBSCENE

These lyrics always make me laugh:

There's a new me coming out
And I just had to live
And I wanna give
I'm completely positive

So this clip is completely insane. How many tiny, cute animals died to make Diana look this OTT? and what role did Larry Hagman play in her big comeback TV concert special?

MCNEIL


coming eventually - mcneill's animals on southern ice porcelain discs as necklaces and brooches. as usually it is taking 18 million years to get the pieces made. yadda yadda yadda. however they will look amazing when I have finished

QADDAFI


"Since completing his transition from international pariah to statesman, Colonel Muammar Qaddafi—the longest-serving leader in both Africa and the Arab world—has brought color and his own eccentric panache to the drab circuit of international summits and conferences. Drawing upon the influences of Lacroix, Liberace, Phil Spector (for hair), Snoopy, and Idi Amin, Libya’s leader—now in his 60s—is simply the most unabashed dresser on the world stage. We pay homage to a sartorial genius of our time."

PIRATE

this skull ring has been popular lately. usually guys buy it. i'm a fan of guys wearing jewellery, it just makes you look more finished

this ring looks cute when resized to a girl's size as the skull becomes larger in proportion to the piece, making it look like an especially cool cocktail ring

ROMANCE

nc
How on the money was Cate Blanchett's crotched dress by Romance was Born? The mainstream media hated it but granny squares have been the ironic craft punchline in the blogosphere for months.

I think she looks awesome.

SHILO



I've finally made a stainless steel Shilo, King of Dinosaurs Necklace.

Shilo never made it to the stainless steel range as I was afraid his tail would form a sharp point capable of puncturing a young girl's neck. I have resolved this dilemma by rounding off his tail and cutting the piece from steel twice as thick as the other characters. This gives a pendant that is both satisfyingly heavy and safe to wear.

STUDS



Little Flying Bird Studs made from stainless steel and sterling silver posts. Available from Corky Saint Clair now. $40au RRP
