be sure to check it out! but most of all when you happen to be in atwater village, ca and need a gift for someone or yourself – this shop is really a treat. shop local y’all! we all win!

here is another video WADE! did from the footage from the makers video of just us – chaparral studio! enjoy!

these photos are from earlier this april when soho house asked us to dress an estate in a desert hideaway with lush plants such as succulents, pepper tree garlands, terrariums and then some for a private coachella party. however the best part was collaborating with our dear friends, the talented folks of found rentals. these ladies have a vintage collection that was a dream pairing for our plant design.

this project was alot of work in the hot sun and required a super team effort but damn did it look mighty fine in the end. i mean the soho house does have a pretty good looking clientele  so we had to bring it. and we did. go team!

big thanks to the soho house and found rentals!

new in the shop: brass cuff bracelets

February 4, 2014

sm-bangle1

the surface studies brass cuff bracelet…

inspired by the textures of the stones and natural findings encountered on hikes or used in our creative practice – these brass cuff bracelets are treated like a painting or drawing – each piece is hand made, applying textures to the surface of the brass,highlighting relationships between markings. referencing the beauty of Wabi Sabi, the end result of each piece celebrates the spirit of the one of a kind object and human mark.

bracelets come in two sizes. small measures 1/4″ wide. large measures 3/4″ wide. the brass is adjustable and can be molded to your wrist at your desired arm location. the bracelets are light weight and comfortable for daily wear.

the bullshit brass cuff bracelet…

inspired by two of my favorite bracelets in my personal collection, a vintage brass cuff that was my mothers (sorry ma not giving that one back!) and another gifted to me by her that reads: bullshit.
i decided to combine the form of one and the wisdom of the other to create this piece so that you too could share the joy i have in owning a lovely bracelet that shares a common voice.

sometimes it really is all just bullshit. and that is kinda wonderful to say out loud. stamped. by hand. on a brass bangle to wear solo or with the wrist collection you got goin’ on.

as always made with love. keep in mind every bracelet is hand made and imperfections are what make these pieces extra special. the brass is adjustable and can be molded to your wrist at your desired arm location.

(the lovely garland behind us was made by none other than the one and only yasmine.)
