For a few months I was living in an RV in the Bay area after I left LA. Took me a while to decide where exactly I wanted to Live. I finally chose Fairfax! But, before I did, I had to work in very limited space in the RV. I made some good stuff during that time though! It was an adventure that I really enjoyed. I'm sure I will do that again in my life at some time. Gypsy life seems to be in my blood.
These are images from a runway show in LA with Skin.Graft. and Darrah Danielle and myself collaborating. Darrah did the collage up above and I did a replica of the headdress in the image that was set on a mannikin w/ a Skin.Graft. gown. She was reading from an old book by way of an image of someone's face reading and then projecting it on the mannikins face. I did a lot of hats/headdresses for this event . My friend Sean did the hair (from Fred Segal Hair).
As time would have it , I am at the point where I did a shoot with Skin.Graft. for their Holster Bags. They asked me to provide the Jewelry that day. Love those guys! And this is where I met our sweet Angel Breanna ...... A true Angel of sweetness and bright light. R.I.P. love. We will miss you soooooo much. I am so pleased I have these memories of you... :)
This jewelry shows some of the first actual metal work that I did while studying metalsmithing in LA. Hope to get back into that again soon. So fun.!
Kendrick Osorio did the styling for this awesome shoot. It was shot in a lifesize Marionette Theater in LA. He piled layers of my Rhinestone jewelry on the models and I also did the black velvet cape w/ the rhinestones on it. I loved this shoot. Unfortunately, I do not remember the name of the photographer???
