With Open Hands

I went to Tucson, Arizona for the Gem and Mineral shows at the end of January/beginning of February on a buying trip for work, which was super interesting. It was hard not to be distracted by my personal interests, but I’m pretty disciplined, and when you walk those shows for days on end you have to focus to get through them in a timely manner.  All that said, I did buy one thing… kind of a weird choice, but I saw this large carved bone pendant of open hands and had to have it.  It’s slightly creepy but I’m into it. I think it belongs on a long chain, don’t you?

I’m sorry- I can’t seem to find what show this was from to give credit, but I just loved it.

The Look See in Vogue UK!

I forgot to mention that I participated in an advertorial feature in Vogue UK, May 2013 which should be hitting newsstands about now! Blink and you might miss it, but I am very happy with the curation of it and was pleased to be asked.  Thanks to my talented friend Cara for quickly re-shooting it for me and making me look good! See #5!!

An Attempt at Metalsmithing

I decided to take a month long introductory course in metalsmithing over the latter part of the summer to see how I liked it, and to expand my jewelery-making skills.  He’s a little janky (I barely had enough time to solder his head and tail to his body, and didn’t get to polish the over-solder off), but here he is.  I spent most of the class sawing, and then filing because I am terrible at sawing.  I also found that I am not good at precision hammering, so there are a lot of double strike marks, but whatevs… at least I made it! Just wanted to share my first project with you.

The silver parts you can see on the brass body and copper head are from where the solder spilled on to the piece, and it is the devil to polish off.

Minnow Bathers

I am obsessed.  If I were going to plunk down some change for a new swimsuit this summer it would be for this one.  I’m usually a vintage one-piece only kinda girl, but I love most of the styles in this shop.  I even love this two-piece.
