It's All About the Details. The Tiny Details.

Unwritten Rule: Necklaces should be just as pretty in the back, as they are in the front. I love anything feminine, fun and and flirty.

Can't wait to make more of these.

And Another One.

This is why I love my friends. They are most definitely fly. Ok, ok I may be partial, but the chicks definitely have style.

Exhibit A. My other roadie, and sista from another mista "Lo", she is working on a vintage inspired clothing line that will feature repurposed clothing into something young, fresh, and new. Chic right? One of a kind items that are also eco-friendly, gotta love it.

Here is a sneak peak of some of her recent vintage finds, I think these are all gorge as-is, yet can't wait to see how she spruces them up! Ooogling over her vint finds is one of my guilty pleasures. Once your done drooling over these pieces, check out her blog:

Crazy in Love. No really.

I am extremely proud of one of my dearest friends, and BFF Tina Divina. She is really one of the most creative people I know. Tina is a guest blogger at Hidden Beach Records;

and she also co-hosts The Single Life with Claudia Jordan & Friends on Sirius 106 FM, a group of equally talented, grounded & beautiful ladies!

Over the summer, she wrote, and co-directed a series of shorts titled "Crazy in Love" - Lets just say they are intense! Check out the video, and see for yourself! If you like what you see, and want to see more of her work, check her out online; ------>>>>

Got Me Working Day & Night

Since I have been working feverishly putting this line together, 6-8 hours of sleep have been replaced by power-naps, every color, texture, & shape is an inspiration, and Earl Grey is the new BFF in my life. So this is what it feels like.

My life is definitely hectic right now, would I trade all of this for a position behind a desk? No way, I am an artisan at heart, and a seat shifter to boot. There is nothing more gratifying than watching a piece go from vision to fruition.

The launch date for my jewelry line is August 15th 2009! I am excited, nervous, and gitty, but this is a long time coming dolls! Check out some work-in-progress pictures from my studio below!

Be Yourself. Everyone Else is Taken.

The creative zone is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.

— Alan Alda

Sweet Dreamin'

Sometimes inspiration comes out of nowhere and knocks you down. I live for those times, I love to be inspired to create, grow, and one day make something so wonderful, it inspires another. I can only imagine how fulfilling that must be!

Check out this video of Beyonce', it was an interlude during her I Am....tour! I had the pleasure of attending her concert (in LA) and when I saw her costume, I went B-A-N-A-N-A-S.

I can't begin to tell you how giddy I was when I found this video online. After watching this 5 0r so times [STRAIGHT], my brain was bursting with creativity; he-l-lo information overload! Neurons were firing, and light bulbs were flashing in my head. I decided to design a few futuristic pieces fabricated from metal.....I am going to put pencil to paper, and complete some sketches in the next few days! Stay Tuned!!
