Happy Birthday to....... Me!

I am an Aquarian born on the 21st of January and I have been celebrating all month long.

Last night, I ended my birthday month with a dance party at B.East (big hugs Gelo!). Deejay's Desi Monster and Jared Buckhiester played our dance tunes and my girls Linyee & Randa helped me make the best party favors from scratch - GLITTERSTACHES. I felt 2% guilty that I didn't provide my guests with cake balls, but this girl needs a break! ;)


Crunchy Jewels : Jewelry Collection 2009

I am in love with this new series of necklaces. I am still utilizing recycled & vintage chains, but have been incorporating yarn & cord by interweaving it into the chains for a splash of color. All of these pieces are one-of-a-kind and hand made by me. I just dropped of a handful with Alec at Stuart & Wright, but I will also have a few Crunchies available to purchase online via Etsy sooner than later....

The new Crunchies have already been featured in some press coming out these next few months and I will be collaborating with different independent clothing designers this year, so stay tuned!



The best part about being a fashion librarian....

...is getting thank you notes & portraits like this!

Zaldy and his creative team (including my dear friend Adam Selman) paid me a visit to do some inspiration research in the library a little while ago. Their enthusiasum was infectious and they were so much fun to assist. My favorite is the application of falsh eye lashes to illustrate my hairdo. =)



New Year, New Crunchies

Just a peek of new pieces I worked on over holiday. Now that cake ball season has slowed down for me (until Valentine's Day!), I can divert my attention to Crunchy making! I will scan more pieces soon!

If you click on the photo, you'll get a super sized view with great detail.
