"lobstah" brass necklace

As playful as the name implies, this brass necklace is a fun and elegant play on the undersea creature.  Art deco meets mod that is a mixing of opposites--void vs. solid, symmetry vs. asymmetry, plan vs. elevation views--creating a dynamic interpretation.  Small and featherweight, but packs a punch that will have everyone looking your way.

"lobstah" brass earrings

A new addition to the nummynims shop!  As playful as the name implies, these earrings are a fun and elegant play on this undersea creature.  Art deco meets mod that is a mixing of opposites--void vs. solid, symmetry vs. asymmetry, plan vs. elevation views--creating a dynamic interpretation. These brass metal pieces suspend mid air while their natural curvature seems to reach up towards you.   Small and featherweight, but packs a punch that will have everyone looking your way.

cycling around...

Ready to zip around the city!  After multiple test rides of various bikes today, I decided on this Bianchi. Retro and great ride.  Very exciting day!

much ado about nothing_in the park

This year's Shakespeare in the Park started off great with a performance of Much Ado About Nothing.  Really funny and well cast.  It's the last week so go see it if you have a chance.  Free tickets if you wait in line at Central Park. Watch the sunrise warm up and city and have a relaxing picnic day at the park while you wait in line with friends.  It's worth it.  Or enter the virtual lottery online if waiting isn't your thing.

 

Can't wait for the 2nd play of the summer, King Lear, starring John Lithgow.   Starting soon!

"heron"_transluscent plastic ring

The next piece in the series--3D printed translucent plastic ring.  [BUY HERE] at my etsy store.

An alternate to its sterling silver counterpart.  Beautiful, custom, translucent plastic ring. Asymmetrical, fragmented design wraps around your finger & garners a unique appearance every time you wear it--with a slight rotation the piece transforms. A perfect mix of solid and open patterning.

Made to order in common US women's ring sizes. If you don't see a ring size or quantity you want, definitely please contact me and we can discuss alternates. Allow at least 10-15 days for production and shipping as each piece is custom made to order.
