Hedwig’s Baublry is an Etsy shop based in Sugar Hill, Georgia ran by shop owner Bonnie Gokey. Her shop specializes in Steampunk jewelry and accessories for those with sensitive skin. Bonnie makes all of her jewelry and hair pieces with nickel-free metal alloys so that they will not cause skin irritation. Due to her own allergies to metals, she began searching for and buying sterling silver hooks and earring backs to replace those that caused her skin irritations. This quickly led to inspire her to begin creating her own jewelry and accessories. In her shop, you will find a variety of hair ornaments, including barrettes, headbands, decorative hair combs and more. If you are sensitive or allergic to other types of earring backs and jewelry, you can shop with confidence at Hedwig’s Baublry, knowing the items are nickel-free.
From Bonnie: “I’ve always had an affinity for clockwork, fantasy, and industrial design. About 10 years ago I realized there was a name for this genre of art and realized that I had found my tribe. When I started Hedwig’s Baublry the main focus was creating barrette designs with gears and clockworks in my beloved steampunk style, but then I wanted to expand my capabilities and grow as an artist. I started with dragonflies and undersea life. This success quickly morphed into a Cthulhu theme. Once I saw how much I loved these themes, it was easy to apply it in other areas of my life I enjoyed, especially the geeky ones. I started with Harry Potter and Doctor Who – I’m a fangirl for both. I’m adding new themes on a regular basis. The Christmas Ornaments were a particular hit this year at Hedwig’s Baublry which just shows that steampunk can be great for any occasion. No one was more shocked than me that my shop has been a success!”
