I BEGAN working on the cuffs in July… but when I stepped into Buckle and picked up the FALL look book- I was so inspired to COMPLETE that first COLLECTION. I am so very excited with this collection- I had to share it with you- and let you see it paired with the look book that inspired me to finish up the FIRST of what will be many collections. Its pure eye candy with no calories. Wanted ya’ll to know just what I been busy doing. ( My daughter upon seeing the completed collection said- MOM I want one of each of them and the outfits you paired them with, toooo!!and I am not just saying this because YOU made them mom, lol)
There are twelve cuffs to the collection- only 11 on the first page but the steel tower cuff is the next page. I love that some of them are so gender neutral!!!! I have had some guys trying on the tree bark and the chimney rock and the tower- and everyone loves the denim seam.
The collection is very organic- and eclectic. Hidden in the imagery sublimated on the recycled aluminum cuffs are turkey feathers, saddles, vintage lace, wood, rock, metal, a denim seam from vintage jeans and one of my very favorite sunsets. Enjoy- and let me know which one is YOUR favorite. They are SOOOO light-so comfortable-and cross fashion trend categories so easily. I have a fashionista friend- Claudra who told me today- “HURRY- I need one of every color. I just want to wear them with everything”- I better let her at them soon- she told me last week she is gonna have to go out and buy more clothes that go with the one she has she loves wearing it so much.
Being the artist- I of course have several collections I am working on and wear a cuff every day. They are so light to wear- and are a very unique accessory. They ARE for sure eye catchers with many compliments coming their way. My daughter ( who of course has a few) says she loves the fact she can actually see it on her wrists and she enjoying looking at them as much as wearing them. She also says- she doesnt want them in her jewelry box or a drawer-when she takes them off she wants them out where she can see them…..so working on a display to make that happen. What a blessing to have my creations treasured that way. They begin from my own personal photography or digitally created art. I am beyond excited about the response of people when they see them in person and humbled that they feel attracted to them for the art they were created to be. Most often I hear- WOW- those are SO cool- I’ ve never seen anything like them 🙂 Its been a great adventure so far- and I have barely let the cat out of the bag!!!
Here’s one on a wrist 🙂 This cuff is a digital art piece of a turkey feather and antique tatted trim.
…. Slices of Light ………..
Capturing light. Enlightening Style.
Created on Recycled Aluminum- yeah!!
Made in the USA- double yeah!!!! Right here in South Georgia!
Disclaimer– I was INSPIRED by the look book-Buckle does not sell them- but they sure would be good looking on your wrist with most of the clothes in the store. 😉 Will keep you posted when and where they will be available. I prefer to put them in shops right now- so if you know of a cool boutique that they might want to add some whimsy.color,light and unique accessories too- leave me a comment and I will email you!
There are sooooo many more collections to come. 🙂 This is only the beginning. I am so excited with my decision to bring my work to metal.
Thanks for taking a peep. 🙂
Till next we greet,
