Coming Soon: Holo Ghosts & Glitter Ghosts

Spooky season approaches, which means new Ghosts! This year, there are two new limited editions so here’s how to get them.

Brand new are Holo Ghost keyrings, which can also be used as bag charms – or remove the split ring for a statement necklace. This acrylic is so cool – it looks transparent but once it catches the light it changes from blue to pink and back again, just like a real ghost (possibly). They’re very limited edition (only 18 available!).

Due to popular request, I’ve brought back the Glitter Ghost brooches, my very first limited edition. There’s another 48 available this time and they’re packed full of sparkly glitter that’s great for dark Autumn evenings and Christmas parties. You’ll be able to choose a pin fastening this time too.

Both are available to pre-order now on my Patreon – you can join up any time to get access to the pre-order. The rest will be added to my main shops on Monday. Here’s the Ghost brooches page to check or keep an eye on my Instagram for updates.
