back in the day my little sister had this on VHS and ive currently got a song from it stuck in my head.. specifically the lyrics "when i grow up i wanna be a kid, i wanna have some fun and stay forever young." i was about to have a lengthy rant about growing up because it is something im having to come to terms with more often lately but as i was thinking i remembered a recent conversation and how a friend stated at the risk of sounding cheesy "i love life." well.. as i told her, its not cheesy its true. and something im working to remind myself of more often.
and boy how theyve grown up.
her work is amazing.
especially her film work.
check her out. seriously.
in those two photos the model was wearing some jewelry from my personal collection.
and this model is wearing my scarf.
and more of my favorite vintage chains.
well last year i saw some of nick caves soundsuits on display in a gallery.. crazy amazing dr suess-esque things.
and last night i saw a live performance with the suits.. mind blowing. i wish there was a way to fully share what i saw but it was one of those you had to be there kind of things.
his work is quite amazing.
and some of my horrible attempts to capture last nights magic...
finally finished with the project of teaching myself granulation, and lemme tell ya.. its much much harder than it looks to fuse metal together without solder and without melting everything.
but.. i ended up with two simple little rings so im happy.
granulation: the process of fusing tiny metal spheres of gold or silver to a surface of the same metal in a decorative pattern. It is an ancient technique that produces a beautiful, delicate effect.
for whatever reason.. i thought this would be a good idea to try it. wish me luck. and check out these pieces by Katherine Swift.
