Hand painted Levis denim jacket, my own design

I painted this beautiful vintage Levi's denim jacket with acrylic paint (the color is fixed by ironing). It was a lot of work and it took me a few days but it's always a pleasure for me to use my paintings and brushes. I created this illustration, my own design, inspired by the movie "Metropolis", Fritz Lang, 1927.
This jacket is for sale HERE

Be weird with elegance, spring 2017

The brooch, a beautiful and useful fashion accessory to personalize a hat, scarf, blouse or a jacket. A little something (or not so little!) that catches the eyes. A timeless piece of jewelry.

I created this huge brooch from a picture of a particular moth: The Polka-Dot Wasp Moth (Syntomeida epilais).
This is a real piece of art (and I am so humble!!LOL). Completely handmade by me with high quality materials. The piece is truly one of a kind! Hard to render in picture the shiny effect of the glass beads, the softness of the velvet and the luxurious pure silk. There is something very pleasant in this brooch, very easy to wear.

The polka dot wasp moth (Syntomeida epilais) is a species of moth thought to be native to the Caribbean. It looks like a very dangerous wasp, but in fact is a harmless moth.

A whimsical linen jacket (handmade by me)

ECO FASHION, ALTERED COUTURE
This is my last creation. I had this beautiful but very simple, light green linen jacket, very comfortable and soft to the touch. I wanted to transform it into something original and unique, lots of bright colors and whimsical details. Perfect for the spring.
THE FINISHED JACKET (it's a XXL, and my mannequin is a small size,
so not easy to show the lines of the jacket, but it's very flattering to the silhouette)

Wire Wrapped Jewelry by Michelle Shearer

WireMoonJewelry by Michelle Shearer

Today let me introduce you Michelle Shearer, a talented jewelry maker, from California, working with wire and beautiful natural stones.


What Michelle says about herself :

"The process in which I create a new necklace or other jewelry design either starts with a stone, or an inspiration in my life. I rarely sketch before I start wire wrapping a stone. Instead, I sit and I think about that particular stone. It may sound silly, but I listen to what it has to say. Should I wrap it in silver, copper, or another metal? Should I cover most of it with wire, or let the stone do most of the showing off? When creating a piece that doesn’t have any stones in it, it often sources from an experience or inspiration from another artist. Sometimes a walk in the woods can have me running home to make a tree of life necklace. Other times a swim at the beach might make me wanting to make a jellyfish pendent.
