Author Joan Didion once said she believed in using the good silver every day, because "every day is all there is." It's in that spirit I'd like to embolden you to take some creative liberty and adorn yourself, any day, not just the holidays.
The Art of Adornment, that's the name of Carla S. Fox's Etsy shop.
How to define Carla...she's a jewelry designer, a milliner, or more acurately a Facinator , and I would say an embellisher. But her work transcends those terms. Her necklaces, cuffs, neckpieces and hats are works of sculptural art, like a cross between Coco Chanel and Dale Chihuly -- elegant and nostalgic, playful and fantastical.
She creates dazzling assemblage pieces using found and discovered materials fabric scraps, antique buttons, bits of vintage jewelry, leaves and feathers.
"I seek out the unusual, the discarded, the overlooked. I see beauty where it may not currently exist, but I'll coax it out and give it new life."
I'll finish with this dreamy creamy bridal headpiece. Happy EVERY day everyone!
