Looking through my jewelry design books today, dreaming up pretty things inspired by the past.
"Earrings From Antiquity to the Present" by Daniella Mascetti and Amanda Triossi
"Victorian Jewelry" by Peter Hinks
I stumbled upon this video on Refinery 29 (http://www.refinery29.com) and wanted to pass it along. It's a great interview with Brooklyn boutique, Thistle & Clover and features one of my favorite designers, Caitlin Mociun (http://www.mociun.com). They're discussing subjects close to my heart: the strengths of a creative community and the handmade, independent movement.
Tried to get things accomplished but was moving very, very slowly. Had good intentions of making jewelry but was instead the queen of procrastination. Here's what I did instead: Baked a loaf of yummy gluten free bread with berries. Made a fritatta with spinach, mushrooms and zucchini (inspired by one that I had while visiting Ashland). Went on a solo thrifting adventure and made some great scores! Picked up two adorable vintage silk button down shirts, an amazing printed 70's sweater and a vintage navy St. Johns cardigan with sparkly buttons.
Paper Treasure welcomes custom orders. I love transforming your family jewelry into something new. Here's a piece from a series I made for a client using bits and pieces that belonged to her Grandfather.
