The Wicked Griffin is dedicated to complementing the slightly darker side to life with eclectic inspirations derived from Paganism, Norse Mythology, Vikings, Medieval Times, the Occult, Esoteric & Fantasy.
The Wicked Griffin, officially got it's start back in the late 90's with the help of a high school silver smithing class. Being taught basic and advanced metal working techniques, The Wicked Griffin, aka Jacqueline decided it was time to start manifesting the images floating around my head in early 2011. I work in my home studio, where you will find me sawing, firing, hammering, soldering, etching and a number of other things!
I take my own product pictures and I also designed and maintain this website all while taking care of my beautiful 7 year old daughter. I recently got married to my beautiful husband, who moved all the way from Germany to be with my daughter and I. I've definitely got a lot on my shoulders, but...
I absolutely adore what I do. It is extremely humbling to me and I am so grateful to receive all the love, support and positive feedback on my work. People like you make all the effort worth it. I love creating a powerful piece so that you may express yourself in a bold way. I like to think of my artwork not just as jewelry, but as wearable art. I gain inspiration from historic paintings, statues and depictions of ancient gods and goddesses, music & nature. I try to recreate a tangible piece of jewelry from these sources, while also maintaing my own inner creativity and drive.
The body is a temple, and should be expressed as such! My passion is to help that "particular" person express themselves through the means of adorning the body in jewelry as an art form. Thank you so much, from my heart to yours, for visiting my website and taking an interest in what I have to offer!
