Serpents you can carry around

I was working on these adorable pendants whole last week :)
It started, when I got a custom order for a pendant including snakes. I decided to practice them and the idea if more simple pendants of curled snakes came into my mind.

They are made out of polymer clay and  are really light. I paint them with silver paint to make them more realistic. 

Look at this sweet little fella ❤❤❤😙
They will be curling on your chest all the time.

They all are available at my shop www.etsy.com/shop/deadlycherries. So don't be shy and take a look ;)


Bats and how to have one living in your room

This year I decided to learn more about bats... I always found them to be fascinating, but did you knew that there's about 1400 species of them... and more is being discovered. And only three spieces are known to feed purely on blood...  For few orhers just eat their victims flesh... But most of them feed on insects or fruits. They weary from super adorable looking to really creepy ones... Creepe, but non less fascinating;)  Bats make 1/4 of mamal population on earth and their extinction would be felt drastically...

 Well, I could write more, but there are really nice documentaries and books about bats;) You can check them out. Goes good with tea on a rainy day... Watching documentaries makes me feel so cozy :D
So bats inspired me with their unique looks and I created few of my own :D Here's the first one of them :)

The face is sculpted from polymer clay.
He is so cute little fella!
He has his own place to hang out, so you don't need to worry about him hanging on your curtains :D
Wall is a good place for him too. Bat he likes lamps and windows as well...

He, as well as few other cuties, are listed at my etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/deadlycherries
So you can check them out. 
The begining of fall is bats mating season and soon they'll start preparing for winters hibernation. It's important to not disturb bats during this period for it can couse their death. And we want more bats in this world, don't we ;) 
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!


Back to black and other adventures

Hello, darlings! A lot of time have passed since my last post. But it's Autumn. And Autumn is my favorite season, so I thought it would be a good season for a come back :D

Tones of things have happened. I'm basically a new person now, so I hope you'll like posts, that this new me will be writing :D

I'll try to post a little in every post of thing I want to share with you :)

But first things first...
 I want you to meet my new creations - little demons, that I call dream demons :D

I wanted to start making dolls of my own, when I fell in love with Amanda's  Spade Dust Bunnies :) And finally I started my journey as doll maker. Well I wouldn't call them dalls... They are soft fabric creatures with polymer clay faces and horns. This was my first batch. 

They are listed at my etsy shop now
But that's not all... More beautiful things were created and I'll write a bit more about them in my next post. Thanks for stopping by;)


Demonic headbands by Deadly Cherries

As you know I've been creating deer antlers headbands for a while now :) And I decided to try something new recently. These are my new designs of Lilith headbands. 

The blue one is still at the store and the red one is gone.

This one had a black sister but I was so in a hurry to ship it out, I forgot to take picture after I made it :( Customer asked for a similar headband but with black roses.

This one is the newest one :) I love making these more demonic headbands :) But on the other hand I always love to try something new.

I also want to brag a little. Lindsay  Schoolcraft who plays keyboard at Cradle of Filth bought one of my headbands and asked for a custom order latter. This is the headband I made for here. She wanted something dark with eve leaves and Lilith horns. The picture doesn't do the justice but it looked great :)  It kinda prompt me to make more demonic horns too.

I will continue making more darker headbands since I want to discover something of my one, that would be more unique and would have my signature.


Gothic/dark jewelry organizer you can make yourelf

Here's another DIY. It's really easy, and I think you all can see what I did here :) I just used twigs, hot glue and acrylic paint. 

I painted few artificial leaves black and hot glued them to the twigs. Twigs are also hot glued to the frame. You can add anything else you want. Be creative :)

 And this is how it looked before....

So, if you needed something cheap but cute, here's a perfect solution for you. You can leave it for notes or use it for jewelry. I'll be  making another one for notes too. I have  a big urge to goth up every corner of my flat, since I'm living alone for the first time :D 


Turning things black :D

Oh, such a busy person I am. No time to even right a post.But here's one. Short, but...better then nothing. I'm rearranging my flat again since I decided to make the other room just a bedroom, so the main room would be living/working room. Before it was living/sleeping/working room... and the second one was just a storage for things that had no place :D
I'm a big fan of candles and every night I burn a good bunch of tea candles in my colored crystal glasses. I like how the soft light shines in the darkness and I fall asleep so easily :) 

My glasses

I bought a few hundred of them on a sale and decided to keep them in the box on the window shelf.The only free box I had was this yellow one and I decided that it needed a revamping. 

Now it's all nice and black and has bats :D I did felt a great pleasure covering this yellow thing in beautiful black. :P

Take care!


From Ferrero to Gotherro

I got myself a black Acrylic spray paint that can be used indoor. I have a few cans of black spray paint that leaves room unusable for a 12h and I'm not a fan of those. But this thing is a miracle. 
Just look what I did with the empty chocolate box. It took like 30 min. to revamp it :D

I got Ferrero Rocher for my birthday and kept the box. And one day ...

It was transform into one fitting to be used by me :D Have no idea what to keep in it...

It would be a nice gift with or without chocolate ;)


Deer horns

During all this phase I manage to keep my store alive..somehow... There were some late orders thought.. 

But here's something new I made today :)

I don't think I have introduced you to my new guy :) It's a funny story how I got him. I had a blank head for while and a friend ordered theirs with makeup. And guess what. She didn't like the way it turned out, but I just fell in love. So we switched :D So now I have this posh poet character that is all moody and gloomy and dreamy. He doesn't have his own body right now, but I'm almost there...

Oh, and this fella arrived not so long ago.

I'll dedicate next post to him :)


Back to life

Hello my darlings.
I want to thank you all for support you showed. You can't imagine how wonderful it felt to find your comments telling me that it will be ok. I cant' thank you enough, but, THANK YOU!!!
It's one thing to know and to hope that it will be ok. But it's really nice to hear it from some one else... I kept silent about this situation of my and didn't let my family to find it out.  I didn't want to look weak or "not looking realistic at things". But these were time when everything blurred out and there was no good or right... just terrible. I still get "sad"...lets call it "sad"... But it's easier to get back to reality now.
I changed my look...I cut my hair... I got my normal eating habits back... I started interact more... And even started taking zumba fitness classes...
Maybe because it's spring and the nature itself is all magical... maybe because enough time has passed and wounds are starting to heal... I'm just catching up with myself. Meeting old friend helps a lot.

So, I'm kinda back :)


I'm not deleting "Gothically yours"

Hello again. I'm really grateful for all of you being concerned about my emotional state. I'm glad to hear that someone actually likes this blog of mine. I'm trying to build myself a new. Some days are nice, some are terrible and dark. For now I hope I'll come back with more interesting things for you to show. Thanks for being out there.

Kisses and hugs for all of you!!!
