Hi everyone! I am EJP of EJPcreations. The items I make utilize design elements from a bygone time, to create modern, urban body ornaments. I am a mad scientist of a woman specializing in creating tiaras, necklaces, and fascinators, with a noir, and gothic flair. All adornments have a hint of vampire elegance, a dash of Steampunk bravado, and plenty of Neo-Victorian sensibilities. Here is my little blog to showcase some of my creations, the things that inspire me, as well as a scrapbook of curiosities that I have picked up in my wanderings across the web. ~ Please Enjoy …

A little Glint in Horus’s Eye
I have been working on a bracelet or gothic corsage design for quite sometime now. I knew the elements I wanted to comprise the bracelet design, but making it comfortable and wearable was holding the design up. I wanted it to mimic the 1800's ribbon bracelets with a corseted back closer, but really, really easy to put on. Finally, two weeks ago I came up with the perfect idea. The clasp is a corseted laced up clasp. A slide bead draws the laces together, and can be closed with one hand. By just holding one ribbon, and pulling the other ribbon to close the bracelet. When you want to take it off just pull gently on the bead. So easy! The type of bead I use for the slide fits nice and snug so you don't even have to tie the ribbons in a bow if you don’t want just have them sexily streaming down your hand. All the elements came together perfectly! I am so pleased.
