She is a native of the deep south, with an aesthetic and experience that is true Southern Gothic. Her childhood was spent playing on the decaying grounds of Rowan Oak (Faulkner's home)amidst rusty farm equipment and filbert trees that curled back against the sun.
To get her childhood you mix :
3 parts rust, 2 parts torn lace, a jigger of bourbon,& a splash of absinthe. Serve with a family secret (or two) & you have bayousalvage style.
My name is Ginette and I'm from New Zealand.
Ikat & Batik has evolved from my love of textiles, sewing, shopping and travelling. I fall in love with Bali and Indonesian textiles on the first of several trips to Indonesia to visit my daughter, and dream of living here. The tropical climate, low cost of living, vibrant arts and craft scene, and not being too far from family in New Zealand, are all added attractions.
Her items are fabulous and who would not love a IKAT pillow or BATIK silk scarf. These are essentials in life! :-)
If you have a moment check out her project that she is doing with her sister on kickstarter. it's a dog portrait book project called canine chronicles, and its going to be a photo book and fictional history of the 20th century's most notable dogs. if you become a backer for the project you can get your own copy of the finished book and other great rewards.
Story told by her, When I left Maui and returned to Israel to join the army, I wore a sea shell tied with ribbon around my neck for good luck. Following the death of my mother, I’ve been wearing one of her gold bracelets on my wrist to always remember. As a TV producer, I wore my beeping pager as my only jewel and a badge of honor. Since my wedding, I’ve been wearing a simple ring, the symbol of my love and our union.
I was born in Israel, grew up in Alaska and Hawaii, and reside in New York City.
I’ve been a soldier, a student and a journalist. Now I’m a wife, a writer and a jewelry designer.
I aspire to cultivate my life experiences into beautiful designs and classic pieces...
This woman lived such an enriched life already and it shows in her beautiful jewelry. Love the molded ring above as an alternative to a traditional wedding ring. :-)
This guy makes the most incredibly adorable prints. I love that its all about animals.
