Alexander McQueen: In Memoriam

Fashion designer Alexander McQueen, age 40, was found dead in his London apartment on February 11, 2010. Rumors speculate that McQueen, overwhelmed by the very recent death of his mother, ended his life.

Whatever the reason, we've lost an artist who's brilliant disregard for conventional fashion influenced and amazed the world. His work transcended beyond the echelon of top designers, into pure artistry. He was an undeniable genius and incomparable to any other.

I Sell, Therefore I Am

After years of making schtuff and either wearing it, giving it away, or just letting it sit around, I've finally set up shop among the bazillion DIYers on Etsy. 

For those of you not 'in the know' Etsy is "an online marketplace for buying and selling all things handmade: clothing, music, furniture, software, jewelry, robots." It's relatively easy to set up and maintain. You pay a listing cost per item (which is 20 cents), and that's it- 1,2,3 Go!

I've listed some of my jewelry pieces, and will be continually adding more in the near future. A few items in the shop:
