The lovely artists responsible for Fringe Collection recently sent me three stunning neckpieces -- this bullet "bib" being one of them. This is probably my favorite out of the three. So much thought was put into this design. In the faux fur-lined box in which the piece arrived, it appeared shapeless and odd; when clasped on the neck, it takes on the "cascading" shape and lays so beautifully. The bullet casings are strung on invisible cord to give the illusion that the piece is floating. The black piece around my neck is the neckline to my t-shirt, not part of the necklace; I sliced it underneath at the seam. Anyway, Fringe is currently offering some of the most unique creations I have ever seen. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and the artists utilize a lot of uncommon materials like stone, wood, seed pods, and more "organic" found objects. Their work is so different from what is trendy right now in terms of jewelry, yet simultaneously current, and extremely beautiful. I've gotten so many compliments on this piece. This is definitely a line to keep an eye on ... I'm dying for the faux bear skin rug they offer in a medley of custom colors to lay on our bedroom floor. I'll style the other two Fringe necklaces soon. The bone necklace is my own DIY piece; just some bleached bones with drilled holes strung on a leather cord. I've been meaning to sew these bones onto a jacket or vest for awhile, but haven't gotten around to it.
I love these Phi boots .. they're extraordinarily comfortable. I'm so bummed Phi isn't around anymore. The Burzum shirt was a gift from a dear friend in Pittsburgh, who gave me a massive amount of super-soft, worn-in band shirts when I was on tour and Pentagram passed through there. I've been meaning to send her a huge package in return, but I keep on finding new stuff I want to send her as we continue to unpack boxes in our new place. I promise I'll send it soon, Kristin! xo
My due date is tomorrow and I'm SO ready to have this baby ... Bobby and I are both overjoyed and very excited. I promise to keep posting throughout this very hectic, very special time in our lives. There are a lot of exciting developments in the remote future of this site and MeineLiebe. I thank all of you once again for all of the endless support and encouragement. I'm so glad so many of you enjoy the blog and I'm confident in MeineLiebe's designs and what we'll be offering for fall. I'll keep you all posted; have a safe, fun Saturday night. &hearts
