Ever wanted to wear jewelry and accessories that subtly — but lovingly — expressed your love of all things literary, historical, or nerdy? Well, look no further as Pretty Poet INK is here to meet your needs.
The brainchild of writer Alj Augustine-Cox (yours truly), the Pretty Poet INK shop is the manifestation of a growing fondness for jewelry crafting and a deep infatuation with civilizations across the world, literary works, mythology and lore, science fiction and fantasy, film, and TV.
Pretty Poet INK embraces the “nerdy” things you love while still managing to give your wardrobe a bit of a boost and the best part? Most pieces are one-of-a-kind, so you’re almost certain no one else will have your piece!
Pretty Poet INK currently features three major collections: PPI Nerdy, PPI Trendy, and PPI Antiquity — all containing limited edition items featuring semi-precious gemstones, plated metals, thunder polished glass, and crystals. However, more collections are underway with an expansion into textiles in the works.
So if you’re a fan of the fae, entranced by Native American mysticism, or a sucker for steampunk, then PPI is for you. Die-hard Game of Thrones viewers or Marvel/DC fangirls (and boys) can find something that speaks to them, too.
And for those who are just looking for something trendy to wear, PPI also has something for you.
Overall, Pretty Poet INK is the store for those looking for meaningful (and wearable) works of art made with their interests in mind. But that’s not all!
Because everyone is unique, PPI also strives to make pieces extra special with personalized customizations — within limitations. So don’t feel shy to ask for something special based on an original design or your own concept.
