Undiscovered Gold

Sting Bodysilc Ray Orange and Black
This week I had very difficult decisions to make. As I pounced through the shops that have yet to have a sale, i found TONS of fantastic choices. There were new jewelers, knitters, painters and everything in between. I choice this shop because it was so unusual.

Blackapple Bodysilc could call itself a jewelry shop. It could just as easily call itself temporary tattoos. What they create falls somewhere in between. The pieces are handmade silicone which can be worn anywhere on the body you can find a clean, flat surface. Due to its natural adherent quality, it can be washed and reused.

Zero, the artist behind these creations, lives and works in Los Angeles. Since losing her job in the economic downturn, she decided to throw herself wholeheartedly into her art. How lucky we are that she decided to do just that!

Her work is not for everyone. Zero herself says that it is "alternative" fashion; it is designed for lovers of tattoos and other forms of body art. Many of her pieces listed currently take texture and color from lizards and snakes.

If you are looking for something different in body art but don't want to make the commitment to the permanence of most, this is the perfect solution. I look forward to seeing what amazing work fills her shop in the future!
