New Glass Charm – Specter!

You’ve loved our Kuro Glass Charm since we first launched it not even a year ago – and more recently we shared a VIDEO on how Neacol at Bling Squared rocks out while making the glass charms! And we have been ecstatic over the response to the charms.

As you know we’ve got Kuro plushes – Poodle and Specter – they are a couple, so we couldn’t leave Kuro Charm so lonely.  Tada! Now we have  – Specter Glass Charm!  Specter is unbearably cute … and we got a little crazy with his booty and turned it into a ghostly bottom to match his spectral character!

Kuro Charm – and Specter Charm – come with certificates of authenticity, signed and numbered to show which they are in the edition of 250.  Price is $30.  So if you want a Specter Charm and own a Kuro Charm already – you can request your Specter Charm edition number to match your Kuro Charm edition number. Write the request in the payment message or email us after you place your order.

A word from our fun loving artisan Neacol: “We were so thrilled with how much fun the Kuro charms were to make, and how well they were received by Camilla’s fans, that we couldn’t wait to get another design together.  The Specter design is reminiscent of Kuro – since he is like his even more evil twin – but his ghostly bottom and large mouth posed new challenges for the glass medium.  Challenges we were up to, of course!  We are very, very happy to present the limited edition Specter Glass Charm.”

Special Couple

Since we’re all romantic and stuff we also wanted to celebrate our 100th Kuro Glass Charm (yay!) by offering Kuro Charm & Specter Charm together as a couple from edition number #100 to #110.  You will receive both charms with the same certificate numeration in their boxes, with the usual accessories (chunky chain and cell phone strap). The price for the couple is $60.00.

Kuro Glass Charms Have Landed

I am happy to announce that the little glass charms of Kuro are here and ready to order! This collaboration with local British Columbian artisan Neacol Miller has been so much fun … seeing these little guys come to life has brought me squeals of enjoyment and I know it’ll be the same for anyone who gets their own!

Kuro charms are limited edition of 250.  Each Kuro comes in his own black jewelry box, 18″ silver plated chain, cell phone charm strap and a signed certificate of authenticity printed on full color, heavy gloss stock paper.  Every single Kuro made is slightly unique, since they are individually hand crafted and may look different from the photos. You can order your own from my online store right now.

Many Kuros

Kuro charms will make their official retail debut at The Ayden Gallery on Saturday February 13th, during the gallery show, 5, which I am a part of!  I will also be at the show, since Ken knows how to put on a good party at The Ayden and we’re all revved up by Olympics fever.

Kuro Cell Charm

Glass charm Kuro is possible thanks to Neacol and her husband Stanley, Miller. They own Bling Squared Wearable Glass Sculptures and work out of Salt Spring Island. This is their website and they make some of the most adorable little glass charms you’ll ever see!  You can see and buy more of their creations here.  They are a husband and wife team and their inspiration comes from obsessions with Japanese animation, comic books, fashion, pop culture and their daughter. Kind of like me, except without the daughter ~_n!
