A week or so ago, a friend in studio launched her own handmade jewelry line as her final project. She needed someone asap to pose for a few pictures wearing some of the jewelry for her catalog. While clearly I'm not the most professional model, it was still a fun shoot. We conquered the undeveloped patch of woods across from a park in town. It was a little treacherous at first, but we braved forward!
For her project, Alyssa not only handmade each necklace, but created the logo for the etsy site, designed the print catalog, built a window display, printed business cards, and put together the cute packaging for the necklaces. The inspiration for her line was inspired by southwestern native american motifs. Each piece is made of birch-wood or plexiglass that has been laser cut and features details like glitter, skull beads, or natural stones.
I like that each piece is unique. I think my favorite necklaces are the gold glitter plexiglass triangle or the birch-wood triangle with the white skull. And how could you not fall love with the little cute faces of the raccoon and fox? Take a look at the designs below and come check out her etsy shop: Weeko Mika Designs
Thanks for reading!
