The Alchemists

It feels so good getting press. Its like all the hard work I've bee doing is validated in some small way.

This feature in 7x7 Magazine, a really amazing lifestyle publication in San Francisco, is especially sweet. I have my own little write up and am quoted in the main text. See #2.

web love wednesday...

I love Ana Montiels's blog. She does what I'm always trying to do. That thing is post current artwork on a regular basis, mixed in seamlessly with other work she admires and personal inspiration. I try to post about the actual jewelry I'm working on in real time, but things often get crazy and I rush to ship something without photographing it.

This is a link to Ana's blog, but check out her website as well. Her logo actually played muse to my new logo, which is being perfected as we speak.

Some of my favorites by the London-based, Spanish visual artist and designer

Oh Oakland...

I love you. On a beautiful blue day, there's no place I'd rather be.

I can't wait to share my new collection/logo redesign/photo shoot with all of you. In the meantime, here are some little morsels from the Sarah Swell photo shoot to keep you satified while everything comes together.

flea market porn...

This will probably be an ongoing collection of flea market porn, as I visit this market (ok, more antique, than flea) monthly. Who am I kidding, this is literally the highlight of my month. Hunting for treasure makes me feel like a child anticipating toys on Christmas morning (or in my case, art supplies, more art supplies and books. Yes, I was one of those kids)

It's my heaven.

my finds this time...

It wasn't until I got home that I realized I'm on a definite American Southwest kick. Ya think?

Mika likes Vintage Pendleton too.

web love wednesday...

Moon to Moon is where I go to let my fringe wearing, granola eating, Fleetwood Mac listening, let's make this world a better place little gypsy heart run free. Somehow this blog of bohemian interiors makes me feel calm (not an easy task) and inspired. I think because it's oh-so-much more than interiors, it's like a page out of the life I sometimes want to run away to lead.

inspiration breeds creativity and the other way around...

As my new collection comes together I find myself prepping for my editorial style photo shoot later this week. Imagination turned visual. Inspirations for the Sarah Swell shoot. Can. Not. Wait.
