Get Your Jabs
A friend of the Kingdom, from way back in 2008, was a lovely lady called Verena Paloma Jabs. I'm not sure if any of you have been reading the blog since as far back as that, but if you have then you may recall her online shop, Cococareer. I bought quite a few things from Cococareer, inluding an awesome pair of Maaike Mekking PVC trousers, which I had to recently donate to Gladrags in Glasgow due to the fact my arse is never going to be that small again.
Cococareer sadly came to an end a while back and after that Verena manintained radio silence for the longest time. Well, I recently reconnected with her and she tells me she has launched a new shop to sell her own handmade jewellery line.
It's a small shop just now but her pretty, affordable and very intricate, laser cut acrylic and wooden silhouette creations will hopefully prove popular and see the shop grow.
The pieces are like wearable fairytales. The photos don't really don't them justice as I suspect in real life they are far more beautiful.
Verena explains her work; "My work explores the imagery of fairy-tales, dreams and nightmares as well as being a reflection of the transient beauty of existence and nature.
