About shop

High quality handmade alternative items that are only outshone by my unique and fabulous customers

I founded 8th Sin in 2009, when I was just 15 and had just discovered alternative and Japanese street fashion. I adored (and still do) everything cute and creepy but didn't have the money to buy clothing or accessories for the styles I loved. I started to make my own items; first for myself, then to sell to others via Etsy. I want to create cute and sassy items, macabre and quirky items, classic and timeless items - as long as it makes you happy, I want to make it.

In the past years I've expanded from basic jewellery making to clay work, sewing, leathercraft and more. More recently I've started dressmaking, which is a very exciting and large new world. In my ideal world, I want to make jewellery, accessories and clothing for all alternative and Japanese fashion styles; it might be ambitious but I don't think anyone should go without high quality, affordable alternative items and can support a living, breathing person and company too.

I have been creating items for over 6 years now and seek to use the highest quality materials and techniques to make my items high quality. I personally stress-test each finding and item to ensure it holds up to daily wear and tear. I find inspiration in keys, crowns, vintage & Victorian aesthetics, lace, religious art, occult imagery, insects, dead things and fashion street snaps of real people and real trends.
