Sheryl Kirby creates bold, audacious statement jewelry for someone who enjoys being noticed.
Sheryl takes inspiration from the Goth, industrial, punk, 2 Tone, Mod and rave scenes, the 2SLGBTQ+ community, disco, little kids who love rainbows, stylish old broads who don’t give a damn anymore, and the Gen Z kids who mix everything up with panache and aplomb.
Every piece is handmade and completely unique. Made from (non-latex) rubber, polymer clay, felt, and whatever else she can find, Sheryl makes one-of-a-kind pieces that are the epitome of wearable art.
Sheryl Kirby Creates will be taking part in our Hallowmas Market on Saturday, October 28th at Ground Control, 1279 Queen Street West. Be one of the first 25 people in the door to score one of our Trick or Treat Swag bags and get yourself a coupon for $10 off your purchase at Sheryl’s table.

I’m Sarah R., the 34-year-old owner of and sole artist at SweetlySinisterArt. I am a Gothic, fantasy loving, Halloween obsessed spiritual Satanist and my creations reflect such.
I picked up a pencil to draw at age 10 and have been practicing ever since. I got my start in the art industry 7 years ago when I took a job as a film & television prop maker. In the 4 years at that job, I created everything from wearable medieval amour out of sheet metal to Si-Fi weapons using everyday plumbing parts. Now, running my own studio where every day is Halloween for a little over 3 years, I proudly sell high quality handmade home decor, classic & 3D mixed media paintings as well as photo prints for those who enjoy both the sweet and sinister aspects of life.

Hi, I’m Jordan. I’m a Hamilton based woodworker with a passion for turning wood into art and helping nice people tap into their naughty side.
All of my paddles are hand made using domestic hardwood from a local supplier. I have paddles available in seven different sustainable species of wood. My work is finished with a food and body safe homemade mineral oil and beeswax blend using beeswax from a local apiary.
I look forward to seeing you all at the Toronto Dark Arts Market. Drop by my booth and give my paddles a try. I am also available for custom orders, so feel free to grab a card and chat.
