One of the illustrators who put us on the path to CVLT Nation is Doomsday Graphics – his art has an intensity and a punk rock spirit that resonated with us as soon as we saw it. His wife and partner in crust is Acid Witch Produxions, and she handcrafts
The Moon Sisters are more magical than ever. Since their CVLT Nation introduction just short of a year ago, these beautiful ladies have transformed Sisters of the Black Moon into a thriving culmination of mystical treasures. Not only does their vintage shop continue to fill with unbelievable threads, but with
The Great Frog, originators of the iconic Skull Ring, have just released a collaboration with Motörhead – two sterling silver rings, the Ace of Spades and the Warpig. They are made with exquisite detail, especially the Warpig ring, which is just bad fucking ass! I hope Joe Petagno gets one!
Artifacts From Hell is the evil brainchild of Michael Schulz, a collection of hand-carved and cast jewelry that looks like Satan’s own talismans. He casts his dark arts in solid bronze and aluminum, and creates a texture on the metal’s surface that gives the impression that these pieces were indeed
OCCULTER is a project by Black Sheep & Prodigal Sons, the brainchild of NYC-based artist Derrick Cruz. Cruz combines art and commerce in his jewelry, books and sculpture.

An old friend of ours, Nick Potash, is a seriously talented craftsman. He has two lines of hand-carved rings and pendants, 1/1 custom pieces, and Pompeii, a line he sells both on his blog and in jewelry boutiques. He makes some sick shit – skulls with precious stone “brains”, rattlesnake
Betsey from Relapse hipped us to Blood Milk Jewelry the other day…and I am so happy she did. Blood Milk is one of those diamonds in the rough on Etsy.com, which I find overwhelmingly felt and stitching potholder-y most of the time. She make one-of-a-kind rings, necklaces and bracelets using
