I love Parrish Relics and the Art of Lisa Gill!

I love, love, love the work of Jen Parrish of Parrish Relics

I first found her work when looking for jewelry for my wedding when I googled "Gothic Jewelry"(yeah, my marriage didn't work out, but I still have my relics and a great friend in Jen too). She also made me a custom piece with a photo of my 4 little black cats which is so dear to me(I found each of them as little abandoned kittens and they are just wonderful people-Jen gets this! She donated a portion of the sale to a charity that rescues ferral cats in Greece-one of the places I used to live).

Jen is also so sweet-she introduced me to several of her friends. One friend, Lisa is an amazing seamstress and graphic designer of her own business Arteffex at and has designed my website and my business cards-fabulous! She also made me a fabulous gown based on my love of Waterhouse's "Miranda".

Through the years and many emails, we all finally got to meet which was wonderful and I met more friends who share of my love of all things Gothic, Medieval and Fairy Tale(plus, we are all crazy cat ladies!). I thought I would share some of Jen's and Lisa's work here. I am truly blessed! Who knows what surprises life has in store for you.

Ha! This is what I always say about Jen, "Parrish Relics-Bringing people together one relic at a time!". She does her quiet little giggle at that but it is so true!
