senior collection ideas?

my angel headed hipster necklace.
(the little purse says MAD MONEY. haha.)

its from last year, but in thinking lately im debating going down this road for my senior body of work. vintage/found object with some fabrication/casting.


how fun would this have been?

went into the vintage shop venus and mars today in nashville. its run by jack white's wife and boy did they have some cool stuff. i loved the jewelry and the fact that they have clothing rental so if you cant shell out a few hundred for a vintage formal dress you can rent it.

found these photos from a halloween party held there called 'through the looking glass.' too cool.


sorry for the lack o posts. twas a exhausting week back at school.

I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stumped by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, ‘Hi.’ They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.
