While I tend to favor studs, a solid statement-making pair of earrings are a jewelry box necessity. Especially once warmer weather begins to rear its head and layers of clothing start to drop off. Annie Costello Brown‘s brass and silver jewelry is hand-cut and hammered in her Los Angeles studio, and the results are pure art.

Barrow

Barrow-1-Design Crush

 

After a weekend of 60-degree temperatures I have all things spring running through my head! Many of my wardrobe staples make the transition from season to season by depending on layering and accessories to mix them up. Portland shop Barrow features beautiful glazes and hand-dyed cotton cord, just the sort of things I’m looking for to make everything feel a little lighter and brighter.

Lorena Marañon

Lorena Marañon-1-Design Crush

 

Something about January makes me feel like I should be hunkered down embroidering next to a roaring fire. The problem is I haven’t done so much as cross-stitch since elementary school, so the end results would be nothing as spectacular as the work of Lorena Marañon. The Cuban-born artist is inspired by the landscapes of her youth – northeastern coastlines, rivers, and plants – and the colors that surrounded her. The result is a beautiful body of work that’s full of embroidery, patchwork, and jewelry.
