It’s the eve of December and the countdown is officially on. It’s time to start thinking about Christmas gifts to avoid the last minute dash we all know and loath. If you want to shop independent then you need to start getting those orders in. Here at Death & the Maiden we have decided to help you out with some “deathly” inspiration… Happy Shopping!
The incredibly talented Lozzy has recently teamed up with Sugar & Vice to create this beautiful Skull Cameo Necklace. She also has some super cool “Skelly Wreath” & Krampus Christmas cards for sale on her website.
The art of Annabel de Vetten not only looks great it tastes great too! We particularly love this “Morrigan” skull collaboration with Jessica Joslin. You can even purchase edible Christmas cards! Look out for the dead Victorian bird designs, so beautiful.
Stunning, wearable art by JL Schnabel who began to create her line as a response to the loss of her father. The Bloodmilk line is inspired by death, mourning the afterlife and feminism resulting in beautiful talismans that reveal stories about both the artist and wearer.
Taxidermist Amber Maycut offers both traditional pieces and fantastical anthropomorphic pieces that are unforgettable. Who doesn’t want to own an ermine nun?
Emily Evans has something for just about everyone on your list! Home of what is arguably the best anatomical and histology inspired china and elegant, sugar skull wall paper. Looking to treat yourself? Emily’s gorgeous histology scarves or a luxurious leather phone case that has been debossed with the pattern of human skin.
Tasha K Price has loved skulls since she can remember, this love became an obsession (I’m sure many of us can relate) and her business Haus of Skulls was born. There are so many fabulous colours and designs to choose from. They also do gift vouchers if you can’t decide which skull they’ll love the most!
New York based artist Kjersti Faret has such cute designs her her shop. We particularly love this “Give me Coffee or Give me Death” print. They also have jumpers and T-shirts with this print. There is a “Tea” variation too.
Leila Cothran creates vibrant pieces inspired by Day of the Dead, her experiences and love of Mexico. There are so many beautiful designs to choose from. A beautiful addition to any home.
Death Under Glass aims to educate while allowing appreciation for the beautiful colours and patterns found under the microscope. You can purchase awesome merchandise from their online shop.
The festive season can be hard when someone special is missing. Sometimes it’s hard to know what to say. Inspired Goodbyes have a range of Christmas cards that may give you the opening you need to tell someone special you’re thinking of them.
