what i've been working on...

i haven't been working on many new designs as the sales from the lonny magazine feature have been keeping me incredible busy, but i did take a little while yesterday to hammer out something other than the brass quartz hoops that i can't seem to make fast enough! i know that the trend right now in jewelry is "the gaudier, the better" and i do like that, but i have a hard time getting away from the aesthetic i feel most comfortable with: simple and modern.

see what i mean? i really don't have many new things to show! although i don't wear earrings (flojo thinks of them as toys, and if i wear them they'll just end up bent or broken) i always seem to have a lot of ideas for them, and since the hoops below are my best seller, i figured i'd make another geometric shape, but on a slightly smaller scale, and see what people thought! and the bracelets, well, i just love bracelets.

because of the number of these hoops i've been making i've collected an array of blisters and callouses, not to mention raw fingertips. still, i wouldn't have it any other way, and i'd rather put sweat and tears (no blood thanks to my skateboard band aids) into what i do than have a "regular" job any day! now, i'm off to go hammer out some more hoops!

have you been working on anything new?

  5. Love these friend! Your stuff is so unique--a lot of shops I see on Etsy have all the same stuff, but yours are always so distinct.

    See? I didn't leave a creepy comment.
