Gothabilly Glam - Debstar Designs

Greetings, dear fellow darklings. I hope you are all well.

This evening, allow me to introduce you to a fabulous Australian alternative jewellery designer, who is not only wickedly talented, but a lovely lady to boot. Meet Deb, the Gothabilly gal behind Debstar Designs

Based in Sydney, Deb has been creating costume jewellery for the alternative market for some time now. She draws her inspiration from "the unusual, the strange, the kooky and kreepy and the downright weird, featuring icons classically associated with cultures including Rockabilly, Gothabilly, Psychobilly, Goth and Horror."

Debstar Designs often has a stall at the Sydney Rock & Roll Alternative Market, and will be setting up for the next one on September 14. 

Debstar Designs Market Stall
If you're heading to the market, keep an eye out for her gorgeous green coffin display case, and these recently-created matching display frames:

Following Debstar Designs on Facebook and Instagram is a great idea if, like me, you don't live in Sydney and therefore can't get to the market stall, as she often posts one-off items for purchase that are not available through her website. Below is one such example - Deb posted this fellow gothic flamingo on Instagram last week, now here he is on my coffee table. :)

I might just have to book a trip up to Sydney around September 14. :) Love your work, Deb! 


  1. I love her jewellery! Her items are so cool ;o) Your flamingo brooch is so cute ;o)
    I have to get a green coffin! LOL! Love that for displaying her items ;o)
    Great post ;o)
    Big Hugs ;o)

    1. You definitely need to get a green jewellery-storing coffin, Magic Love Crow! Let's both get one and we can be twinsies :D Hugs to you too lovely <3

  2. I absolutely love the spider brooch, what a creative lady!

    The coffin display case is brilliant, and it was really lovely to see your cousin too ;) ha!

    1. Ha! I rather enjoyed seeing my cousin too, particularly in the company of such a fabulous lady :D

      The spider brooch is gorgeous isn't it? That and The Munsters necklace are my absolute favourites! The only thing better than owning them would be owning a green coffin to store them in ;)

  3. Oooh, I've been meaning to check out the Alternative market for a while now! This would make a good reason. :3

    1. If you do check it out, I'd love to hear all about it, Sary Walrus!

  4. Skull bobby pins! Love these pieces and thk u for introducing Deb to us! xoDebi

    1. Aren't they gorgeous?! My pleasure Debi, I'm so glad you liked her pieces!

      There must be something in the name - I only know two Debs and you are both gorgeous, talented ladies ❤

  5. Oh my! What an attractive cousin you have, Gothic Flamingo! Good looks clearly run in the family! :D

    Your flamingo brooch is adorable! So retro cute! And the Spiders and Webs Necklace is fab! Everything is fab! :D

    1. Why thank you my dear Emma! I think all of my cousins are rather gorgeous, but I assumed I was just biased :D

      It is all fab isn't it?! I love all of Deb's pieces, but that spiderweb necklace - *swoons*!
