Anti Valentines
I wanted to do a Valentines Feature...
But since so many people loathe this Mass Marketed, Consumer "Holiday"
(which I don't blame them for) I decided to do an Anti Valentines Feature. As some people have put it, every day should be a day for loving who you want, when you want. Why just one day out of the year?
And why should single people feel obligated to experience loneliness on that one day out of the year? It makes people who are in relationships feel like they have to spend money (and look pretty) and it makes people who are not in relationships feel like crap.
For me? Well it's just an excuse to eat more delicious chocolate.
(Some features might be a little pro-Valentines..
but I included them because I liked them)

Some features contain Mature Content

Deviousness Award

Deviousness Award
`xerces is a fairly legendary sounding name which is appropriate given that this is a fairly legendary deviant, who in just over 2 short years has contributed close to 20,000 comments on deviations and thousands of other comments elsewhere on this site. In addition to that she has worked hard via her journals and news articles to help educate the community to help keep the galleries clean in addition to her tireless work behind the scenes reporting images that are out of place.
She is indeed an example to follow, and has earned the honor of deviousness for November!
-awarded November 2007


Xerces has started a donation pool!
58 / 3,900
I'm currently saving up my points for a super group renewal for my group Devious-Jewellery. Money is tight for me at the moment as I'm saving to move house.
Any amount- big or small- is welcome, and deviants donating will get featured in my journal as a small 'thank you'.

You must be logged in to donate.

Much too long..

Thu Mar 28, 2013, 2:50 PM

Hello folks!
Yes, it's been far, far too long since I was around in these neck of the woods for more than a fleeting moment!
I've been busying myself with two jobs and a homelife, meaning I have little time to squeeze in those 5-hour long commenting sessions. Unfortunately, I'm a few thousand messages behind, as deviantART is adamant that my commenting is spam! Alas, it means I get to say a lot less on here than I wish to, but c'est la vie.

Anyway, since my last journal entry back in August 2011, my life has rather changed slightly. I now own a house, and not only have I got my full time job as before, I'm also juggling it with my small jewellery business. It's not a huge earner, and I'm far from quitting my day job, but then it's helping me to save for important things like decorating and fixing up my home with my fiance.

And on that note, in just over a weeks time, I'll be getting married, which is also where a huge amount of my time has been eaten away! Not only have I organised it all, but I've also made the invites, wedding favours, bouquets, table decorations, seating plan, order of service, jewellery, cufflinks and confetti. Phew!

This is my excuse fro being a smidgen busy, but it's definitely worth it. So, in just over a week, I'll be happy to call myself Mrs Hall. Wonderful.

Hello there! I am from the good ole' UK. I am a photographer and jewellery crafter

I've been on deviantART since June 2005. I got a seniorship in October 2007 and a deviousness award in November 2007. I was accepted into the MN@ team in September 2008 until June 2011, so I am a very proud member.

On deviantART, I am a keen photographer and horror SFX artist, as well as a long-time supporter of the other artists around.

In my other time, I work as a geologist, meaning if I throw a rock your way, I'll be able to tell you what rock it is, and how good it is for holding oil. But yeah- it won't be that much of a consolation if it hits you.

I also have my own business in the making, selling jewellery and accessories. At the moment, my work can be found on Etsy at Xerces Art on Etsy, and some items are also currently on exhibition at the Paperboat Gallery, Ellesmere Port, England, UK

Current Age: 26, Current Residence: North West England, deviantWEAR sizing preference: Women's Small, Favourite genre of music: Rock/metal, Favourite style of art: Horror and Nature Photography, Skin of choice: Human flesh...
