With the help of some incredibly talented friends, we took to the beach to shoot a magical look book that I hope shows the beauty and wonder that I am trying to convey with my jewelry. We stuck closer to home for this one at Georgiaville pond that is the next town over and has a wonderful little sandy beach, we headed a bit further out to avoid the crowds and found a cozy spot to shoot until the sun set. A special thanks to Daniela Dawson the for taking the incredible photos http://www.danieladawson.com/ and Kate Foster for her joy and willingness to do anything we asked (she is also an amazing artist) you can find her work here http://seeapparition.bigcartel.com/. I sent them ideas of the feeling I wanted to create and they went above and beyond my expectations! Also thanks to John who stuck around and helped light the sparklers. I could not be happier with the way these turned out (its obvious I couldn't decide which ones I loved the most!) and it wouldn't have been possible for these wonderful folks so thank you forever and again!
Rhode Island Summer
I am eternally grateful to live in this magical place called Rhode Island. To be able to travel across this small state from pond, to garden, to ocean cliffs and parks. Living here is a constant surprise and I am always finding new places to adventure and spaces to be inspired by. For this shoot we headed to Jamestown RI to my favorite beach, once you climb down to one of the many little coves you have your own private oasis. This is one of the beaches where I first got the idea for the earrings, I started making pairs of beach stones that later turned into colorful semiprecious stones. A special thanks to Daniela Dawson the for taking the incredible photos http://www.danieladawson.com/ and sisters Florence and Holly Wallis didn't even know they were modeling until they got in the car on the way to the beach, they were great sports and jumped right in! Thank you again ladies for a wonderful afternoon!
