So back in August 2007, I did a shoot with my friend Shyla. Better known as Doll Artist Ugly Shyla.  She had come to LA (Anaheim) from Louisiana to sell her dolls at Bats Day at Disneyland. Her friend Batty couldn’t make it but had a table.  So I agreed to sell Batty’s corsets and my photography at the same time!

In all matters it was a win win situation.  I got to hang out with Shyla, spend the day at Bats Day, and sell my stuff.  Later that night, I got to photograph Shyla and see Android Lust!  What fun!

The above pictures were taken with great patience from Shyla - my lights weren’t firing properly, and we had to keep trying different things to make it work.  In the end, I got some awesome photos that I still love to this day, and she got some to market her amazing dolls. I like the off colors, and the way they came out.  I might not do it the same now, but I’m quite happy with them.  I’m not sure what I’d do differently.  I sometimes miss that dirty edge that I had back then.  Nowadays, I tend to use much cleaner lighting and less artsy shadows!

She hand makes them from start to finish,  and each one is beautiful in a creepy artistic way. They come in a variety of materials, and shapes and sizes.  I have a tiny sleeping beauty doll that she made for me absolutely LOVE it.  I also purchased a bust she made of herself shortly after I first met her.  It still has a place of honor in my curio cabinet! She makes a living as an artist making her fine art dolls and various other arts.

Please take some time to visit her website and look through her dolls and other art pieces.

Poor Jim ever since the stove got fixed I’m sure he feels like #hanselandgretel .Jim rides a bike to and from work,so he likes to stay sit. But everyday when he gets home I’m like “here I made you a snack of handmade candy,cake,chicken and a few side dishes” lol.

The necklace is made from brass toned snake charms and brass toned chain.The focal piece is a resin egg hand made by me that has rainbow glitter and also eggshell powder from a black hen. 10 ½ and over all 12 ½ inches long.

In Vodou, Damballah is one of the most important of all the loa (also spelled lwa). Damballah is the Sky God and considered the primordial creator of all life. The veve of Damballah comprises two serpents prominent among other emblems.
Damballa is related to figures in other mythologies, the Yoruba Oxumaré (also venerated by the Brazilian Candomblé), and the Louisiana Li Grand Zombi.

All of my jewelry is hand made with vintage and or found components

Spell to remove a hex or crossed conditions.Take a bath with two hand fulls of rock salt and about a tablespoon or two of dill seed.Put it in your bath water *soak for about 30 min* and take a sponge and wash yourself really good.But don’t use soap just the plain sponge.Imagine the sponge washing away the hex.Then throw away *away from your home* the sponge which has now absorbed the hex.
