I have very interesting taste in jewelry. Some things, like my engagement ring and wedding band, I wanted simple, timeless, and clean. Other items I want to reflect my rock star style, like my braided leather cuff. And yet some pieces of jewelry I want to be totally unique statement pieces, even if they’re small.
Enter Kt Ferris Creations
Kt Ferris Creations is a one woman show with an incredibly unique storefront on Etsy. Everything in her store is handmade in NYC, is one of a kind, and in many cases, actually blinks.
Yea that’s right. Blinks.
Kt Ferris doesn’t make ordinary handmade jewelry. She scours flea markets in her area to find blinking doll eyes, some of them antiques, and incorporates them into numerous pieces in her store. She keeps them functioning so that when you move, they do too. “I believe when wearing eyes as jewelry it gives you a sense of security, like someone is always watching out for you,” she says, and it’s an interesting philosophy. Definitely one that makes you think. Here are some of my favorite eye-catching (haha!) pieces in her collection, including some that do indeed blink.
Organic, creepy, and delightful.
Those are the three words that came to mind when I looked at the Kt Ferris collection online. If blinking doll eyes aren’t your thing, maybe honeycombs are. She has a beautiful openwork honeycomb bracelet (and a similar ring) that you can wear as a bracelet or arm band, because it’s adjustable. The All Seeing Eye Necklace Vest is a unique piece I’m shocked I haven’t seen over a cropped floral print top on some celebrity in pictures from Coachella. And the drippy rings? I think those are my favorite.
“OMG what’s on your finger?!”
That’s what my friend exclaimed when she looked over at me driving the other day and saw this. The Drippy Ring 111 curved around my index finger, creepily reaching towards my knuckle.
“Is it a skeleton hand? Or…” she wondered. When I moved my hand off the wheel to show her (mentioning that it made me think of aliens, because it totally made Dean Koontz’s The Taking come to mind when I got it) she practically tore it off my hand so she could see it, try it on, and tell me she wanted one.
The cool thing about it is that it’s not connected, so it’s a little adjustable. That means that one day, I can wear it on my index finger, but it also fits my middle finger, and can be moved from my right hand to my left if I want. I want to get creative, I can make it fit above a knuckle, so I have an almost-midi ring.
Or, I can get super creative and wear it like a biological nail claw. Can you imagine a couple fingers adorned with these? Totally creep-awesome, right?
