Fall 2012 Inspiration, A Trip to the Moon
This past weekend I went to LA for two very special occasions. The first occasion occurred on Friday night and was the premiere of Brainwashed Love, a film written and produced by my brother Shawn and his fiancé Alix. The movie, in which I even have a miniscule role, was amazing and I could go on and on about it, but since this is a jewelry blog, you can take a look for yourself. The second occasion was on Saturday night and was Shawn and Alix’s engagement party held at the gourmet vegan restaurant Madeleine Bistro, which was also amazing, and brings me to the subject of this post, Meeme and Mochi Necklaces.
Shawn and Alix live in LA and have two beloved cats named Meeme and Mochi. They adopted the sisters when they were kittens from a shelter last year. Meeme is shorthaired, sweet and shy while Mochi is longhaired, friendly and always looking for attention. Shawn told me once that Meeme was like Alix and that Mochi was like him.
Last summer after a visit to LA, I wanted to give Shawn and Alix a special thank you present, so I decided to make them Meeme and Mochi necklaces. When I returned to NYC, I drew pictures of the kittens and created necklaces from them. I gave Alix the Meeme version and Shawn the Mochi one.
Shawn and Alix loved the gift, and I was very happy to see Alix wearing the Meeme necklace at her engagement party! It looked super cute with her dark blue velvet dress, and she received tons of compliments on her necklace throughout the evening. The entire night was so fun. Thanks Shawn and Alix!
By the way, in addition to being a great jewelry model ;), movie writer and producer, Alix writes an awesome blog about vegan treats and crafts called cute and delicious.
I love the back of the dress (and Alix’s wings tattoo)…
Oh, here is the Mochi version…
This is the first post of my new Cloud Crash blog…how exciting! So here it is…this is my good friend Renata rockin’ my triangle earrings outside The Smell in L.A. Renata has amazing style and is the type of girl I have in mind when I create my designs. She is also an amazing photographer, as you can see by the awesome photo on my home page. You can also see her work in the Vans Girls ad every month in Teen Vogue and Nylon. Below is one of her ads from Teen Vogue this month. I love those glasses! Way to go Renata!
