My Jewelry: couture and ready to wear


school has started and I was ready to make some new jewelry pieces! The first project was angle raising which I already had a few ideas about what i wanted to do and i was ready to get started but because our class was so big our teacher split the project in half. Half of the class is doing angle raising and the other half is doing die forming, and because I already had my project figured out for angle raising chances were I was doing die forming (Murphy's law and all).


I was right and ended up in the die forming group. I had a few ideas but none that i really wanted to commit to. on top of that I also wanted to make two projects, because I'm an over achiever ;) the reason why is that I wanted to make two projects is I'm in intermediate 2 and i feel like I need to show more.  more skills, more time management, more pieces.

Thanks to project runway (that inspired what I did for my project) I decided to make a "couture" necklace, as well as a "ready to wear" piece because in fashion that is what designers do.  I knew that I wanted the couture piece to be big and the ready to wear to be more easy to wear.
I enameled the die formed pieces. I wanted the colors to be bright. I made a lot of samples of which colors I wanted to use. I also wanted the colors to fade in to each other. I also hand made the chain. I used foxtail weave and a double loop and loop.  I love these pieces and wanted to share them with you because I always talk about showing you guys what I'm doing so here they are! i hope you love them as much I do!

model obsession

Coco Rocha

Coco Rocha by Arthur Elgort

I have loved Coco Rocha ever since I can remember but seeing her commercial for black house white market just solidified it. Now since she is on the face as a coach made me obsesses just a little bit more. she has the best style I think I have seen in a very long time! which I see a lot of though her instagram feed. here are a few examples of that style.



 oh dear oxygen please make some team coco shirts!

Lykke Li
A really great friend suggested that I would love lykke li's music and did not give up un till I gave in and heard it. my first thought was how did I not get in to her sooner! her music is amazing, and she has amazing style. For those of you who don't know a lot about her she is a Swedish singer-songwriter. her music has been featured on pretty little liars. my favorite song of hers is I'm good i'm gone on her youth novels album. here is a look at her amazing style.
lykke li!

funny girl

Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling

she is the star and writer for the Mindy Project. The funniest sit com I have seen in a very long time. she is a self proclaimed chick flick junkie which I love because I too am a chick flick junkie. Her writing is so funny! every time i watch the Mindy project I am left laughing at every comical break and even more so when its over! below is the promo check it out.


Mindy Kaling

you might recognize her from her stint in the office. which she mentions in her book is every one hanging out without me (and other concerns). this book is on the top of my book list! just because i love her on her show why not in her book.  not only is she funny she have pretty awesome style too!
update: I finished her book and it's amazing I might reread it!
