Must Everything Always?

07.07.12

A question I try to occasionally ask myself: Must everything always be so complicated?

This morning I thought I’d answer that with a resounding nope.

I made the things pictured here and love them for their seemingly happy simplicity. The necklaces feature big wooden beads that are probably about 60 years old, there’s a geometric brass bead (40+ years old) with amazing patina, glass trade beads, ancient toys, copper chain, wire. Oops, wait, not sounding quite that simple!

Have had these ancient clicker toys around the studio for a long time; love how these turned out. You can still see the bug’s eyeballs through decades of rust. Well, at least they look simple.

So… mostly, yeah, simple. Right?

Uh, well, I don’t actually think so. Here’s the thing: One should never confuse simple with easy. Simple, it turns out, is actually effing complicated. Yep. Nope. I don’t know! And… whatever!

    I feel your pain. I think you should move to LA and make custom pieces for freaky rock stars
