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 …

An Ode To Ernest

I am a HUGE fan of Ernst Haeckel illustrations. He was a German Zoologist who drew scientific illustrations of various forms of life. His most breathtaking images were drawings of sea life. Haeckel captured their essence in such a haunting way, adding a vibrancy to them that is beyond compare. Given that it’s no wonder why I wouldn’t absolutely fall in love with this creation by Timothy Horn, entitled Medusa. Measuring 9 feet wide and made out of cast silicone and fiber optics. Such an impressive interpretation, and a masterful use of his medium to see it in person I would imagine one could only stand in awe.
