studious reflection. custom inspiration.

So this orange beauty was the end result of a custom order that went out today! I like it. This is actually something I've wanted to do since I have GOBS of these beads [thank you Edie, mom + Bren]...right, loads of colorful beads: orange, emerald green, lime green, hot pink, royal purple, sapphire blue, yellow...

But then fabric reps keep coming into the office pulling discontinued fabric books out of our library! I brought home no less than 15 more books at home this week. I am trying to purge the pat rack out of me, but I just can't stand for all of the fabric books to just be thrown in the trash. Arrg.

So today, I have this internal struggle that reminds me of this scene in Animal House. You know the scene of angel/devil playing good cop/bad cop on his shoulder? That one. One side keeps telling me that I must use up what I have first; the other says that I should just go to the store, buy the dang fabric & make up the pretty necklaces!

Don't I wish all struggles were this mundane?!

freeze frame inspiration. cover girl.

Here's a classic flick moment showcasing colorful floral hair pieces. The stills are from Cover Girl featuring Rita Hayworth + Gene Kelly.

These technicolor-tastic scenes are a great visual for a project that I'd like to work on. Good intentions + all that jazz, you know....

But seriously, now that I have un-quarantined my studio [ethics, hacking up a lung in the's just not right]...right..

now, that I can get to work in there...I hope to get started on my Colorbox series. This would be a base collection of the flower necklaces, but also some pieces without flowers. 

Think Crayola, think of these Technicolor shots. More info to come!
