By the Pricking of my Thumbs,
Something Wicked this way comes.
The Velvet Zebra are a pair,
So follow along, if you dare.
While one a Mermaid scene creates,
The other is free to Eviscerate!
In Red and Black, and some pretty Orange too,
We prepare our annual BOO!
So Raise the Dead, have a Party.
Go see Venom, starring Tom Hardy.
Then get Fired Up, feed your Inner Diva,
And shop Halloween
At The Velvet Zebra.
We have it on good authority that Sir Galahad suffered from a bit of ADD. Of course, back then they didn’t know what Attention Deficit Disorder was. In those Dark Ages you were considered “special” or “touched.”
Or “dead” if you couldn’t keep your mind on the joust.
Recently, archeologists discovered these little gems, entombed alongside several Knights of the Order. In one or two instances, they had to pry these balls from their cold, dead, skeletal fingers, leading researchers to suggest a new theory as to the personal struggles these noble fighting men faced.
Here at The Velvet Zebra, we’ve managed to re-create these Medieval Stress Balls and have made them available for use by Knight and Commoner alike. Feeling stressed in the checkout line? Pull one of these out of your pocket and let your fingers work out that anxiety. Boss got you upset? Hold a couple of these in your hand during that meeting and let your thoughts roam from the battlefield to the board room, and back again.
Medieval Stress Balls come in many colors, Round or Square, and are now available in the Store (squareup.com/store/the-velvet-zebra) or soon directly from this website. Round: $4.00/each or 3 for $10.00. Square $8.50/each or 2 for $15.00.
Don’t be dead, play with some Medieval Stress Balls today.

These little guys are the result of experimenting with Aspect Ratio, which is what determines which rings you can use for certain patterns. Some sizes and thickness are completely unsuitable for some patterns, but we still like to play. One day we were trying to make a Helm flower using completely incompatible rings just to see what would happen. The result was a bowed cone instead of a flat flower, and as we studied this bowed cone we couldn’t help but imagine it as a Jellyfish. So we whipped up some European 4-in-1 in an increasing pattern around a center ring, draped it over the bowed cone, and a Jellyfish was born! All it needed were Jelly-tendrils and a little chain in the center for hanging. This school happens to adorn a little cubby decorated with some Kraken run, seashells, a pirate treasure chest and some gold coins, but they are equally adorable swimming from the rear view mirror of a car, over your desk or dresser, or just about anywhere they can chill and hang around.
Just like people, earrings come in all different shapes and sizes. We’ll let these pictures speak for themselves!
Now through February 14th, enjoy Free Shipping, anywhere in the US from our store: The Velvet Zebra. Who doesn’t deserve some color in the midst of this Winter’s doldrums?
