Introduction ✻ Hi, my name is Emma and I'm 24. I make and sell everything for Heroine Industries on etsy (www.HeroineIndustries.etsy.com)and her sister shop (of the same name) on ebay. I have been making and selling kitsch jewellery on ebay since 2005, and recently changed the name from Andraste Alternative Jewellery.
✻ I recently finished a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration, but have also studied textiles, fashion design and fine art. I love art and crafts and have always been making things and drawing. My dream is to make a living from my art and things I make. I can't think of a better way to make a living.
Interests A few things I <3 are; 80's hair metal (which is where the palm trees come from in the shop banner, I was going for an L.A Sunset Strip kind of feel), collecting and re-rooting vintage Sindy's, art, rockabilly, 50's pin-ups, 50's rock and roll, 60's pop, 60's and 70's soul, Strong coffee with too much sugar, history, anything kitsch and ridiculously cute! Hello Kitty, fashion illustration, gothic art, Fairies, fairy art, anything celtic/pagan, incense and candles, going to gigs and festivals, colourful and glittery items, reading about wicca, pink, gangster films, Hawaii - I collect vintage hawaii postcards (one day i will go!), being a nerd!
Favorite Movies I ♥ gangster movies = Casino, Goodfellas, Carlito's Way, Scarface, Donnie Brasco, The Untouchables, Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Bonnie & Clyde, Public Enemies, Miller’s Crossing, The Godfather Trilogy, Once upon a time in America Other films = Sin City, 300, Fight Club, Mean Girls, Almost Famous, Atonement, The Notebook, The Beach, High Fidelity, American Beauty, The Big Lebowski, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, Boewulf, Edward Scissor Hands, Dirty Dancing, Grease, All the old Disney (animated) films, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth :)
Favorite Music I love 80's hair metal!!! and most rock & metal! I also love 80's Thrash metal! There's just something about rock music for me, that other genres don't have! I don't like to pigeon hole myself too much though, I love 50's rock & roll, 60's pop, motown/soul music, bit of country.
Favorite Books I don't really read a lot of fiction, (other than graphic novels!) but I do read a lot of books.
