Welcome to my blog, where I document my process in making jewelry, muse on the influence of art and the joy of making beautiful objects.

David Bowie sings "eewwwww, ewwww fassss-shion"

I had that song in my head as I was writing this post. Clothing and textiles have always had an influence on me, artistically as well as how I dress.

When I was about 10-12 years old I wanted to be a fashion designer, I even had an inspiration board and wrote a paper for my class submitting some of my designs. I got an A on that paper and my teacher supported my aspirations...she was one of those awesome, nurturing teachers.

Anywho, I thought I'd share some recent fashion show outfits.

Lovely patterns provide ideas for layering metal, fabric and organic materials.

Purple and black - 2 of my favorite colors!

Any shot of black with a shot of peacock feather automatically gets attention for me. That is what I love about black.
The way Bibhu layers squares of fabric near the bottom of the dress is beautiful.

When I look at new runway looks and just fashion in general I begin to think, how it may apply to metal/jewelry. How would I reinterpret the same look but with jewelry?

  1. Jewelry blogs contain all the information you need on jewelry like Gemstone Jewelry. You might wonder what kind of information you might need, but the truth is that there are a lot of things you don't know about the art involved and the material used in different pieces.

  2. I agree, and I like that mystery of art.
