Learn Something New

Its Summer! And, if you're a student like me, that means more time on your hands! So why not make something of it and learn something new? I know I plan to! Today I got loads of new supplies and plan to hermit up the next couple of weeks figuring out what I want to do with them! Actually, the process has already begun, but I got so many awesome new supplies that new ideas are just rolling in, and they should keep me busy in my workshop for a while.

Since my work is really a sentence to spend weeks cooped up in my 1000 degree apartment/studio I encourage you to get outside, enjoy the heat, and make the most of both the summer and your skills, whatever they may be!


Idle hands...

Well, you know what they say. . . So why not treat yourself to one of the many new Dolorous Slave Bracelets and Chain Rings! Check out my Etsy shop for lots more pictures and sizing/pricing info.


Dolorous gets UNIsexy for Summer

Oh yeah, and don't let this beefcake fool you, each of these necklaces looks lovely on ladies as well, and the photos to prove it are on their way soon!


You call THAT a desk?

Well, yes, in fact I do. Just as I call my unmade bed strewn with clothes my "office chair". My bedroom is the proud host of the Dolorous jewellery studio (in reality a great deal of work goes down on the floor at the foot of my bed). But what's a girl (who is both a student and an aspiring entrepreneur) to do? It may not be much but it does the job.
Why, when I have about one square foot of space to work on would I clutter it with a plate of my beloved jewellery and a lizard amongst other curiosities? Well, maybe they're each a valuable aspect of my creative process
Then again maybe I'm just becoming more like my mother

post scriptum. That brooch is from the 1800s and the yarn inside was my grandmother's. Unfortunately, she doesn't remember why she put it there, but we can only assume that the design gene has been passed down in my family for generations. At least thats how it would seem from my immediate family

Hot City

New Neon Cameo for Summer
As you may know if you've visited my Etsy shop I LOVE custom work because collaboration opens you up to concepts and design perspectives you may never have considered. Enter the Hot PInk Cameo. Born from a collaboration between Anna, one of the designers for Alex and Eli, and I when she asked for an 'electric coral' cameo. Not quite coral but a fabulously bright deep orange-y pink. It looks amazing with denim and is creeping its way into being a daily addition to my summer wardrobe.
