For the birds!

BY Dawn in Crafty |

Birdhouse Jewelry!!! I first stumbled upon the lovely Miss Amy Lapierre of Birdhouse Jewelry at Artisits and Fleas in Brooklyn. I had long admired her beautiful, and so affordable jewelry while on my weekly stops at the flea market.

BY Dawn in Crafty |

I'm don't know how else to describe jewelry designer Vera Balyura of VeraMeat as anything but charming, talented, and totally adorable. Think of snippets from your childhood imagination and then cast them into silver and gold- that's what her designs look like. Cowboys, and robots, and astronauts! Oh my! Vegetarian dino charm?

Claw Money for Boosted

BY Laurie in Style File |

Now that fanny packs are no longer just for German tourists and roller bladers, you can get one of these sweet sacks designed by our favorite Graffiti girl, Claw Money. She designed an 8 piece line for Boosted, that include a laptop case, a tote and a duffle and various other sized bags. These are what you put your mobile devices in, or your weed. I love the gold details, plus they are faux leather so very nice for the animal lovers out there. Claw is one ... Read More

In the battle to be the next Amy Winehouse two contestants have emerged as frontrunners.  In this corner, I give you Duffy: And in this corner, we have Adele:    Personally, I think Adele's kind of a snoozefest and Duffy's got the better chance at the title, but what do you ... Read More
