Giveaway: eyelidcanvas pendant ($60 retail)


The core concept that drives eyelidcanvas is the freedom of imagination to create functional and wearable art through the clever reuse of found objects. 

Meet Chicago-based artist and designer Kim Schafer, the talent behind eyelidcanvas. I first saw Kim's jewelry at Remix this year and spent a long time appreciating (and photographing) her unique work. What I always hope for at events like Remix is to see something I haven't seen before. Kim's work is that "something"! So I'm thrilled to not only feature her, but also give you guys a chance to win a pendant she created especially for you! 

Fab: MakeShift Accessories


License plates, cymbals, street signs, musical instruments, machine plates and metal rulers ... just a few of the salvaged things Devin Johnson turns into jewelry. Amazing jewelry, made in Minneapolis! I was lucky enough to oggle MakeShift Accessories in person at a recent street festival and it's impeccable. Not a word easily applied to re-junked stuff. But there it is. If you're up in MN, visit the actual store or shop on Etsy  :)
