In addition to including photographs of the jewelry being worn on a model for my book, I have created digi-sketches of all the materials used to make the jewelry. The materials have been photographed out + about where they were 'found'. I thought taking them outside would make it a bit more interesting than studio shots. Give a shout, much…

One is a Navajo Way… Continue

When designing a room for a client... one of the first things you need to ask, is how arty can one get? Designers can go all out, crazy with color, texture, and money... but when your client asks for simple and clean, this is what they should get. Not too many colors, keeping it clear of chaos and menagerie. This is a great example of good clean design. Simple furniture, simplistic colors and elegance. Mobiles adding a repetitive pattern from the… Continue
