i stumbled across a great find recently, WWII era brass military plaques. these were leftover stock which never had pin backs soldered onto them. they are so detailed and made from such nice heavy stock, and have inspired some new steampunk designs which i am incorporating into my line. a few are already available in my etsy store. the rest will debut on saturday at the Designer's Downtown Market in raleigh, nc.

"icarus necklace"- sterling silver, brass wings, antique tintype photograph

hello japan!

its been a while, but i have returned to my long neglected blog. its been a busy summer. i have attended some wonderful local craft fairs, added some new designs to my line, and collected supplies for some great new fall pieces which are arriving in my etsy store as we speak (many, many more to come in the next few weeks).
the most exciting thing that has happened to me this summer was my interview with the japanese web magazine flashfilm is a lovely online magazine showcasing designers from around the world. i am very honored to have been selected as a featured designer. to see my debut into the world of japanese fashion, check out my interview here (english version).
