>> I forgot to introduce you all to my new friend Jorge.  He hails from the Ciudadela market in Mexico City and comes from a friendly lady who wouldn't reveal her secret of gluing minuscule beads in intricate formations but did give me a discount so that I could proudly place Jorge on my crowded bureau.   He also is now perfectly at home alongside Venessa Arizaga's day of the dead skull adorned necklaces, which I got an introduction to when she did her trunk show at Liberty as well as this Christopher Shannon A/W 11 pom pom tassel shirt, dubbed my jazzy party shirt.  You know how every guy has a jazzy party shirt that's a little bit too shiny and often gets marred by numerous sweat patches after a wild night?  Well err… this is the antithesis to that.  With numerous collections up on Arizaga's e-shop, it's hard not to go there and want everything in sight with flashes of neon, macrame, cutesy but never twee charms all in harmony together in every single piece be it a chunky necklace or a delicate bracelet.  Jorge is having a blast hanging out with Arizaga's jewellery.  In fact, I might create some sort of a bust so that Jorge might wear them on his makeshift neck when I'm not.

  3. Haha! Normally I am not a big fan of skulls, but these actually seem to make me happy with their quirky smiles :-) And respect to the woman that made the necklace and the person that made the skull: massive amount of work I guess! Have a nice evening! Best wishes, jadepillar.com

    Wow! That tassel shirt is something else! And Jorge is simply wonderful! I love intricate designs like these – they’re just so expressive and it’s almost as though you can see all the hard work and effort that has gone into creating every new piece.
    Best Wishes,
