i've always hated geometry

It's true, math was never really my thing, especially geometry. However, I've come to love geometric shapes in jewelry, accessories, clothing and graphic design. My current shape crush: the triangle. I sat at my desk - for professional purposes, read, "I sat in my studio" - one day last week and could think of nothing but the three sided beauties, and this is what came of it...

The headband is decorated with pale bluish grey leather I hand cut. This is definitely one of my favorites, and if I can find some time between house cleaning, laundry, kitten feedings and a graduation, I'll be making one for myself this weekend!

This 3D prism necklace was born from brass, lots and lots of hammering, too much drilling and some brass chain I've oxidized to black. I like the sculptural look of it, and I've got another shape/3D necklace up my sleeve! Please excuse my mannequin's torpedo boobs.

Onto some good news... today I got four turtles out of the road, all within less than a half of a mile. Three were females and the other was a male, so I hope they get busy and make little turtle babies because their numbers need to go up! Also, I'll be able to raise the babies once I get back from California, so they'll just have a babysitter, not a new foster mom! Whew, I'm so glad!

I REALLY need to get to work and get some things ready to ship. I'm sending some bullet necklaces and bow tie necklaces to a store called Pack Rats in Columbia, SC for their grand opening on June 11th, and I still need to get the paperwork filled out and get things ready for mailing tomorrow! I'm such a procrastinator! This is the first time I'll be doing consignment with a brick & mortar shop, so wish me luck!

  8. How funny, geometry was the only math class I liked because it didn't feel like math as much as algebra :) At least we got to draw, haha.
    I love both of those pieces, they're so great!

  11. I just sat here and caught up on your blog posts that I missed this week. I love reading your blog -- it's like stepping into another (less crazy) world. A necessary breather. :)

    Anyway, about geometry -- blech. I swear my sophomore year teacher just passed me because he thought I was cute. I could not get those shapes to stick in my brain. Or make sense. At all. However, your lovely pieces do make sense! Love them both. :)

  12. I loved maths. It was my favourite subject (although I didn't really like geometry and trigonometry - calculus was my absolute fave).

    I also love these creations, especially the headband! Are you going to make more for your store?
