Q&A With AbyssalGems

You can find something for nearly anyone in AbyssalGems’ Etsy shop! Gothic designs for the darklings, Steampunk styles for the cosplayers, and wedding sets for even the most finicky brides. Don’t wear jewelry? She even has crocheted scarves!

CZ: Tell us a little about yourself!
AG: I’m a creative self taught jewelry designer and have been selling on Etsy for nearly three years. My inspirations come from just about any place or anything. Sometimes, i even get an idea on a design for a piece of jewelry and i create from that design in my head, that’s the reason I don’t sketch lol.

CZ: What type of items do you sell?
AG: Gothic, Steampunk, vampire, Victorian, earrings, bracelets, weddings

CZ: What is the inspiration behind your shop?
AG: The original name for my business (before Etsy) was Darkrealm jewelry. There was a magazine out with the name of Darkrealm so i asked my boyfriend to help come up with a name and the name AbyssalGems came to his mind so I ran with it.

CZ: What is the greatest compliment you have received about your work?
AG: A guy actually tipped me $5 one time at a show because he absolutely LOVED my jewelry! lolol

CZ: When did you first realize that you weren’t “like the other kids”?
AG: Other kids were boring to me and on the conservative side.

CZ: What’s a typical day in the life of this Dark Sider like?
AG: Fun and tranquil and chaotic! I wouldn’t trade it for anything else!

CZ: Zombies or Vampires?
AG: Vampires to the end!

CZ: Which horror character do you identify with most?
AG: Louie from Interview With a Vampire
CZ: What scares you?
AG: People sneaking up on me! lol

CZ: When my undead masses take over will you be with us or against us?
AG: With you!
