Holidays at k. talis

Whew... it isn't even December yet and the holidays are getting to me. The making, wrapping, packaging, posting and shopping are in full effect here. I am ready for the parties, sweets, cooking and lounging about portion of the holiday season to begin.

I have been asked lately about the best way to get your hands on some k. talis goods. I just added some work from my most recent collection to my store. I will continue adding work over the next few days. All jewelry is gift wrapped and shipping in the US is complimentary so shopping online is painless. I tried going to the mall the other day..didn't quite make it in. It seems weird that Urban Outfitters is in suburban North Carolina. But I digress. If you would like to ship your purchase directly to its recipient just let me know and I can include a note.

If you are in the Raleigh area you another option. On Sunday December 10th from 4pm to 6pm my entire collection will be available for purchase at one of my favorite places in Raleigh, Enoteca Vin. Stop in, have a drink and look around. I will have everything from smallish earrings to signature earrings at the event. Hope to see you there. [Cash and checks only]

Sunday December 10th

Ornament fun

I just finished sewing and packing up my ornaments for the Holiday Ornament Swap. These were made with vintage chandelier crystals, enamel flowers and vintage leaves. Hung on silk and satin ribbon for the holidays but cut the ribbon off and hang it on a chain and you have yourself a pretty little necklace. Eight woman around the world will get their own unique ornament. I just sent mine off and received my first ornament in the mail today.

Odd place

I just took down the installation of my Fall collection in Goodman's Lady Shop and thought I would share a few snapshots. It was the fourth biannual HL show: HL odd place. I took these quickies last week so they are a little blurry but my friend Lindsey of Lindsey Marla photography took some great shots I'll post later. The mannequins in the installation were all in the store and were just moved around a little for the show. We kept the interior of the space as is and people seemed to really love being in such a unique space. The jewelry is inspired by the colors and details of the space, buttons, sewing odds and ends and vintage floral patterns. Enjoy!

2007 calendars

It is that time of year again. Shopping for everyone on your list can be a drag. But resist the urge to go to the mall. I've looked for the best handmade AND affordable gifts to give and get. First up are the calendars. They are fun because you can buy one for yourself too without feeling too greedy. I really like artists and designers are coming out with such great limited edition calandars now. You can retire the Cathy one from last year.

Thirteen prints held together with binder clips this color inkjet calendar is printed 4 x 4" on archival paper. From Bethany Designs. The prints are $18.

The two calendars above are from Limescreen. The limited edition seriagraph posters have two different images printed on 11 x 23.5" white cover stock. The calendars are on the
bottom so at the end of the year chop them off and keep the print. At $10 each they are perfect for to hang in your office.

Letterpress is everywhere right now. The tactile quality of it is like nothing else. This limited edition calendar from ilee has a different letterpressed image for each month. It comes with a clear jewel case to sit on your desk but I think it would be nice on the wall. One year of deer and flower cuteness for $17.

Swedish artist Camilla Engman's offset printed and wire-bound calendar is a work of art. She also has very affordable prints available on her website. The calendar is 6.3 x 11.7 inches and $24.

Last but not least is San Fransisco ceramicist Diana Fayt's calendar. Offset printed in Japan on Japanese paper it has a hole at the top to hang on the wall. $28

I love this image from my friend Breigh's recent shoot. Jack and Maryosha look pretty cute together; you can't even tell they are ten years apart in age. Check out Debris' DSlite cases as well as her styling ipod cases here.

Wary Meyers

Wary Meyers recently had work in Time Out New York Magazine. They hunted for furniture in the dumpsters and alleys of New York. Armed with not much more than paint, fabric and a little funk they transformed it into must have pieces. Now I don't how one finds an Eames chair in the trash but that's cool. Their interiors seems to use a lot of reworked finds that I am loving. I have some meal chairs that are just dying for some aqua enamel now. Check out their installation in Rockefeller Center. 15,000 marshmellows are involved. That is one chubby bunny.
