Goodwood, a New York-based jewelery and trinket line, features classic hip-hop style pendants (as well as whimsical pieces like this dapper little fellow) carved out of the decidedly non-bling medium of wood. Worn by such luminaries as Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Kanye's main squeeze (or are they broken up?)

Mimicking those photocopied fliers publicizing a lost pet, the posters are the brainchild of artist Camomile Hixon, who has invited the entire city to join the ... Read More
