About Us - Blood & Stars Jewellery
Established in January 2013, Blood & Stars was born from a love of gothic culture and an obsession with jewellery. After our Halloween wedding where a lot of the preparations had been DIY'd, I decided to carrying on creating items for my own use and after that to start Blood & Stars.
Our aim for Blood & Stars is to provide a range of unique and wearable pieces, suitable for day to day or special occasions.
Starting with a single table in a local shopping centre, we now stock a wide range of our own handmade designs including our popular rosaries, eye catching head bands and many other styles of accessories. We also expanded to include jewellery, homewares and gifts from gothic and alternative brands including Spirit Of Equinox, Nemesis Now, Alchemy Gothic and Spiral Clothing.
We also trade at local events through out the year, including the New Forest Fairy Festival in Burley, Hampshire.
About Us - Tracy (Owner)
Interested in the dark side of life from an early age, I embraced the goth, metal and punk styles and music in my teens. I enjoyed making clothes and jewellery for myself during this time and also due to the lack of items available in mainstream stores.
I obtained my Fashion degree at my local university, graduating in mid 2005 and completed a follow up course in Visual Merchandising in 2012.
My main inspiration comes from the goth and gothic subculture, music, media and art. Other influences include nature, the occult, horror works and fantasy worlds.
I currently live in the south of England with my family and black cat. I am also a collector of vintage Alchemy Gothic, with over 150 pieces in my personal collection.
