Straight Outta… The Studio: Split Key Hoop Earrings

il_570xN.1300843158_mwnr

Vintage inspired hoops are a dream, don’t you think? Well, I took that concept, threw split key rings into the mix (yeah, like on your keychains) and voila! Unique earrings that no one else sells (well, I haven’t seen them). They are beyond pretty and draw attention to the face and neck beautifully.

 

They are made of hypoallergenic stainless steel, 25 mm in diameter and won’t weigh your pretty little earlobes down.

The Tale of Death Dan

I love button pins. They’re quite nostalgic,  super affordable accessories that stand the test of time. I see that piece of paper underneath the circular mylar plastic button cover as a canvas. I like to have fun with my pin designs so I decided to make my own and feature a crazy character I made up out of the blue. This is the brief tale of Death Dan.il_570xN.1276764260_dq0h

This is Death Dan and his little buddy Mayhem (the skull). Dan’s quite the character. He rocks a bloody knife fascinator, his mother is a vampire and he has crazy eyes.

Do you dig him? Well, you need this pin. This little piece of wearable art is $2.95. Buy it solo or as an order add on. It will look cool on you… or your bag.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Bad Girl Wallet

  1. Perfect Size

The wallet measures 3.5 x 1.25 x 4.25 inches so it’s big enough to hold all your shit yet compact enough to fit into a small crossbody bag while leaving enough room for your sunglasses, spring assisted knife (never mind, that’s just me) and a few cosmetic essentials.

  1.  Features Eight Card Slots

Yes, eight! If you have that many cards, I’m a little concerned about your credit but that isn’t my business. Maybe you have great friends who shower you with gift cards? There is also a zipper compartment to store change, an extra pair of earrings, whatever.

  1. It Has a Skull on the Front

I repeat, it has a skull on the front. And a very menacing one at that. Enough said.

  1. It’s Made of Faux Leather

I don’t care if you are a meat eater or not. Killing animals for bags and other accessories/clothing is RIDICULOUS. I only use faux leather in my shop.

  1. It’s Only $13.50

Yes! The Bad Girl Wallet is badass, high quality AND affordable.

How GUANGORENA Began: A Quick Tale

Those who have followed me on social media for a while know this all started under another brand name. I originally sold colorful hair bows along with other hair accessories. The line was nice but it wasn’t my style. I was a young woman with a limited budget and entrepreneurial dreams who could make a mean hair bow so that’s what I went with.

Soon, the inspiration faded because, as said, the business wasn’t me. I prefer the darker side of things. I live in black, am obsessed with horror movies, slasher films, anything spooky. On top of that, I draw inspiration from the Victorian gothic era, the 80s punk scene, circus freak shows, classic glamour, film noir etc.. The transition was a slow and gradual one (since I’m also a full-time writer) but GUANGORENA became a thing after a few years. As for why I started the brand, I wanted beautiful pieces to wear that fit my style. I had items in mind that I couldn’t or had a difficult time finding so I made them myself.

The brand is still small. It is not widely known by any means which is fine. I’m working to change that. Fortunately, those who do own my pieces love them. Aside from creating rad items, I focus on quality while avoiding high prices because that balance matters. Customers deserve quality without having to save up for it.

Currently, I have a lovely selection of jewelry in the shop, a limited-edition wristlet, the very cool Bad Girl Wallet (there’s a matching choker too if you’re interested), skull brooches and pins worthy of any collection. As for what’s in the works, you have t-shirts and totes to look forward to in the coming months.

Stop by the online shop when you have time. If you see something you like, go for it. I ship all orders in three days or less. By the way, U.S orders ship for $2.95 while international shipping rates are more than reasonable. Other businesses are getting a little ridiculous with their shipping costs, don’t you think?
