Natural Beauty - Ayaka Nishi

Natural Beauty

Photos Via Ayaka Nishi

Ayaka Nishi is the designer of all of these fabulous pieces.  I am so in love with this entire line.  Born and raised in Kagoshima Japan, she lived in a relatively large city, that also had the benefits of being in nature.  She saw women of fashion, but also was in the Japanese archipelago.  This is evident in her gorgeous work.  I am obsessed with all of her rings.  The detailing in her pieces is so special.  Each one of her pieces exists as its own little art piece to wear.  I am in love with the little spinal column and sea urchin rings....gorgy gorgy  You can read more about Ms. Nishi here.  The perfection of imperfection exists within nature, and it is brought to life in Ayaka's beautiful jewelry line.

Made By Girl - Cartas De Amor, Love Letters

Open publication - Free publishing - More letters

Click on the magazine above to open it up!!
I have never been a huge fan of Valentine's Day.  Always a huge fan of love, but not of a holiday that tells me it is the time to celebrate it.  I always felt sad when I wasn't with someone on Valentine's, and never seemed like such a big deal when I was.  However, when I was a child my mother would always give me and my sister little surprises of Valentine's morning that we loved.  They were never extravagant gifts, but little "S's" as she called them.  Short for surprises.  I was on Made By Girl and she put together this beautiful little mag of love letters.  I really adored everyone's expressions of love, and thought that is what Valentine's or any day really should be about.  Sharing the love.  So thought I would pass this beautiful post along to you.

Our Latest Love

We are a little obsessed with Charamaine Olivia.  She is a fabulous artist based in San Francisco, and her work is so feminine and beautiful.  We fell in love with these silhouettes.  However she does so many more beautiful creations....we may just have to do another post.  She is showing on February 9th at the shooting gallery in San Francisco if you happen to be in the area I wouldn't want to miss it.  You can also purchase some of her work here at Shop Charmaine Olivia.
