I have a new bracelet available that features the beloved Gearbunny pills! The Pharma Bracelet is a colorful eyecatcher that’s sure to stir up some discussion. I can picture this being a great addition to a Halloween costume, especially.
I decided to make this bracelet because I’m reading Mad in America, a fascinating look at the real history of psychiatry by Robert Whitaker. It’s quite disturbing and yet I can’t put it down. It’s certainly opened my eyes to all that we don’t understand about mental health.
Here’s a peek behind the scenes:

Hello… I make jewelry.
And I am a multifaceted beast! I currently sell my work under two pseudonyms. My Gearbunny line is where I express my punky, industrial, cute and morbid side. Here you’ll find polymer clay jewelry and accessories. I mainly focus on necklaces, charms, pendants, bracelets, and earrings, but I have been known to branch off into hair accessories and brooches. My inspiration comes from club and music culture and weird, quirky thoughts that pop into my head. I have been creating jewelry as Gearbunny since 2006.
My jewelry alterego is LapinJade (ooh la la, that’s jade rabbit, in French). Launched in April of 2008, it’s a newer endeavor. My LapinJade jewelry features sterling silver wire-wrapping and original silver pieces that I’ve forged myself using metalworking techniques. The versatility of silver is very inspiring. I also use various gemstones and precious materials. Overall this is a more elegant, classically beautiful line.
Gearbunny and LapinJade are both equally ME, so you’ll find updates for both on this site!
