Flora and Mineral

I've been experimenting with something totally new and strange—in a good way. Born entirely of a suggestion by Lauren (of Lauren Haupt Jewelry) who came up with the idea when she saw my moss- and mercury-glass-filled display at the May Bust Craftacular show, it's a combination of flora and minerals—a gemarium! After a lot of research and experimenting, I've produced something I'm pretty excited about. And they will be debuting exclusively at the Melissa Loves Pop-Up Show on Nov. 12th. If you're in the NY/NJ area, you should absolutely plan to attend, it's going to be a great day of shopping and eating with a very cool array of artists and makers. And maybe you'll snag one of these gorgeous, mossy wonders.

3 floors full of wall drawings - the Sol LeWitt retrospective at MASS MoCA is huge and impressive. The colorful later work is what everyone recognizes, but I really enjoyed his earliest work, which was so focused and minute and cool - just a blank white wall and a graphite pencil.

The installation will be up for 25 years, so don't feel like you have to rush on over there or anything. But you might want to add it to your "someday" list.
