So I did it myself

So I did it myself

It’s just like the vinyl record studs I make. Except that this button serves a totally different purpose. I couldn’t find the perfect one so I did it myself. Well, to tell you the truth, I’d had this idea at the back of my mind for a while now so my search for the perfect button didn’t take very long. It’s simple and, oh, groovy, it matches my stud earrings. I’m actually considering making them available in my online shop now, in different sizes. To be continued.

The art of Erika Iris Simmons

The art of Erika Iris Simmons

I remember being very impressed the first time I was introduced to Erika Iris Simmons’ work because I had never seen art like this before. This portrait of Audrey Hepburn is made from an old movie reel. Erika, who is a self-taught artist, also works with cassette tapes as well as other materials- that are skillfully turned into beautiful portraits. Learn more about her work here: http://iri5.com/
