Zipper Belt

IMG_8370

If you’ve noticed nearly all of my things are designed quite literally for myself, the mental process behind how things are created goes like “I want this, it’s not available anywhere else.” More stream of consciousness…”Designs just for people like me…”. I am contradicting myself a bit here because in the past 5 years I’ve […]

Say it in silver

14675062188_81ee65a29c_o

These necklaces did so well that a re-order was in place, the problem is that nothing happens overnight around here. And the irony of it all was that I assumed my readers were way too “classy” and “subdued” for this piece, too…how do you say..”elevated” (ha). In classic Times New Roman font and delicate chains, […]

Western Clutch

IMG_9511

I brought these older designs back, except this time expanded on production. Experimenting with patchwork, each of these bags are same, but a little bit different. This purse uses new and vintage leather pieces for a real “worn in” vibe. Much of the process is slow, as lining is hand sewn. The chain stitches were […]

Concrete slab

il_fullxfull.611181330_iamt

So you could be extra raw and just use a slab of concrete to place your orchids, or you could try this marble slab as a vase. It’s all an Etsy search key, kinds of items you won’t find at Ikea, or West Elm. Anybody could code this, it’s literally a slab of marble. You […]

Grab it and go …

IMG_2912

I’m slowly adding new sections to the shop… One of my addictions are handbags. Above, a piece I worked on AGES ago, (nearly 1.5 years…) that I found on pure luck while re-organizing my work space. It’s a simple pencil case completely rendered in a rhinestone filter. A funny story as I took this out […]

Watch over cuff

7e9de5a9ee04778d41f56a5029dc964a

For fall you can work this trend of putting your watch over the cuff. It was pioneered by none other than Gianni Agnelli. This act of doing something “difficult” without effort, called Sprezzatura. He said he did this to see the time faster. But it could have also been that he was allergic to the […]

Ringtisserie…..?

IMG_8300

You know the entire industry of fashion and accessories has officially run out of ideas when designers, as featured above (tag them if you like I’ve got no time and don’t care enough to…) are now making hamsters spin. I’m spinning in my head! Who needs a Carnival on their finger? Is this Cirque Du […]

Jewelry Tatts

708a448c082e61e640e9754585b5c5f2

Some really cute jewelry ideas here. Tattoo-d wrists and necks. I like it, assuming it’s not permanent. How refreshing for a cool summer night with a floaty dress? This is major instagram worthy material for my fella trolls. Actually. Upon second thought. I’m already sick of it.

Daily Ration: 8/14/14

extralarge

This should be more of a throwback as it was an outfit I was wearing two months or so ago. It’s a plain green silky shirt with black accents around the color and buttons with a sequin patch. Actually I love this patch, it’s one of a skull. I’ll take more photos later. Paired with […]

Simple Style Solutions

IMG_0351

I have already posted this on my instagram over the weekend, but I guess I share this again with any readers who don’t have instagram accounts (trust me you are much better off without one, nowadays instagram is synonym for “fake” and a wonderful playground for male players to capitalize on “playing women”. Anyhow, I […]

Say it without saying it….

IMG_9895

This one time I went to lunch with my mom. She’s the passive aggressive kind who will wear a shirt like “THANKS FOR NOTHING” to a restaurant and then it’s like I’m sitting there just waiting for another fucking lecture on “how to live my life”… Well if you need a way to say it, […]

Text me….

IMG_1052

I love texting you do too right? I mean like via phones. Because you never say goodbye, you don’t have to say hello. It’s always a continuous conversation with long silences…Well at least for me. My friends complain…this one time I had a friend’s mom text me something important. The mom was like “Ji didn’t […]

Mini Whiskey Dispensers

DSC_0681

I’ve always loved this idea of something being served at the table. I love this idea, too, of “serving yourself”. I mean like, I don’t work for you, ha. You want to drink, dispense it yourself. Ages ago I did this entire whiskey post and found myself at TUTHILLTOWN Distilleries, and received great service from […]

Stone dispenser ….

Screen shot 2014-08-07 at 10.17.20 AM

There’s something going on, like I previously stated, with stones or concrete. From jewelry to alcohol dispensers …. It’s all interrelated, again, Like I said and keep saying. This one is kind of cool but I’ve already done the “champagne” dispenser thing. So I just don’t care all that much. But if you like this, […]

E-SHOP back in action….

eshop

I’m very sorry if you have been trying to purchase any items from the shop…for about 7 months now the E-shop was closed. I know if you e-mailed you were very confused as to why you weren’t able to “Add to cart”. I never announce anything, you know if the “add to cart” button isn’t […]

Chunky anklets

c7b8ad1a9f51a4f5181f218f1d1baf74

I’ve been seeing this trend of chunky chain link bracelets everywhere, and recently started becoming more interested in indian jewelry due to a commenter. I love this link configuration – these pieces are produced by a local indian villager. As someone recently mentioned, it would be hard walking in these, it sure would, but no […]

Open source design

c44a581480800d200103408524e027f4

I recently collected a set of images here gathered to show a set of designs ranging from jewelry to furniture, even ad campaigns, and it dawned on me that they all have one thing in common. I’m attracted to them simply because I walk away feeling like I could tackle this project. For example, the […]

Shoe Addict ….

IMG_7793

I have an addiction to shoes. Send help. Or send me shoes. Either way I am 100% sure that I need a “shoe” psychiatrist. Everyone start flipping out “She needs help! She’s crazy!”. *Scoff in sarcasm*. I’d like to invite the Bozos at NowManifest to come shred on my machines. Oh that’s right you can’t. […]
