Punky Pins - The Darker, Weirder Side of Jewellery

When the high street stores decide skulls are no longer 'in', and when the average silver spikes of the alternative shops just won't do, who you gonna call? Punky Pins... or Ghostbusters... but Punky Pins are a lot more experienced in this kind of emergency.

If, like me, you've never ventured into the online jewellery stores out there, you might not have heard of this brand before, so to fill you in - affordable quirky jewellery at last! 
Everything from Punky Pins is handmade, but that doesn't mean scrimping on quality. Each piece has its own character, not just because of the unique designs, but because someone's given up their time to make sure your jewellery looks perfect. You know you've bought into quality when you see that Punky Pins emblem on the clasp - this isn't any mass-produced vinyl jewellery with a lifespan of a few weeks at best. This is jewellery built to last.
These skulls are the goofiest, cutest little buddies you'll ever wear. I'm obsessed with Dia De Los Muertos as you're probably already aware, so these guys are perfect for me. Having just got my first tattoo and looking for a sugar skull design for my next one, I'm already considering one of these faces - their teeth and cheekbones are so quirky, they're just a fraction away from realistic skull designs and makes them look like the friendliest bunch of dead guys around. As you know, I'm in the business of naming every skull I own, but I've drawn a blank with names for these boys - any ideas?
Stop the world, I've found my favourite necklace. I'm morbid but traditional at the same time, and this ribcage heart meets me right in the middle. I'm wearing this every day at work now, it's my way of keeping the weird and wonderful in the workplace, plus it gets so many compliments from customers. 
Traditional sugar skulls fascinate me, I'm always leaning in to see what little details they have - these guys with their lightning bolt foreheads, starry eyebrows and flower eyes have stolen my heart. Cut from thick wood, this gang of dudes won't break away any time soon. The best thing about this is the extender - I have the tiniest wrists known to man and regular bracelets just drop right off me, but if you're suffering from normal bracelet envy like me, fear not, Punky Pins have considered us!

I already have a wishlist as long as my arm from Punky Pins, I'll be completely bankrupt but at least I'll have gorgeously kooky accessories! From personalised pet necklaces to traditional tattoo-themed bracelets, their whole site is full of things to help make every day feel like Halloween.

  8. LOVE the skeletal heart necklace!

    I'm secretly hoping that skulls and studs become off 'trend' soon so that people stop pretending to be into them!
