TAR Magazine Shoot

The fall 2010 issue of TAR Magazine is out now.

Recently, I got to reunite with the main cast of Guild & Greyshkul Gallery (if it had been an office sitcom which ran for five years) to make this fashion photo shoot happen.  This spread features six rather mysterious photos but so much work and fun and work that I can’t describe went into them behind the scenes.  And I was only there for a portion of the work and fun.

New Studio: Bird Break-In

After shlepping the last of my tools from Flux Work Studio back uptown, I opened the door to the new IMK Jewelry Studio to start setting up and was surprised by a sparrow!


She flew in through the valve in a 6″ duct that used to be connected to a clothes dryer and that I had propped open to let in some air.  I opened the door so she could fly out through the lobby but instead she flew up the stairs!  So Robert, the doorman, opened a bunch of windows in the upper stairwells and she got out.

I think it was a good omen.

Inspiration: Françoise Hardy

Paco Rabanne‘s iconic linked dresses are (obviously) a big inspiration for me, so I was extremely pleasantly surprised when I only recently discovered that singer-songwriter Françoise Hardy was featured on the cover of Rabanne’s biography, and was a huge fan of his.

Françoise Hardy was my first, and for a long time, only female influence as a singer-songwriter. I admired her unaffected charmp and aspired to her beautiful music and lyrics. So now, having exhaustively google-image-searched her, I am in awe of her personal fashion style throughout her entire career!

Here are a ton of pictures!

Flux Work Studio, Brooklyn – See You Later

For the past few months I’ve been working partly out of Flux Work Studio, a collective jewelry studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, run by Elizabeth Thompson of Elizabeth Knight.

I have learned a lot of new techniques and tips from the talented jewelers who work there.

Some of the designers at Flux Work Studio:
Megan Isaacs, Elizabeth Knight, ShinYi Chiang.

On Halloween I packed up my workspace at Flux because I am setting up a new studio uptown, which I will post about soon!

Also, one day this dog Noah was there.

Wow, so far this blog seems half about jewelry, half about dogs!

The Bex Cuff

The Bex Cuff, a luxuriously heavy weaving of silver and black rubber chainmail, is a staple, perhaps the cornerstone of IMK Jewelry’s collection. But I didn’t name it after myself. It was Rebecca Guinness who, early on when for some reason I had not thought to make plain black cuffs, said she thought it would be really cool to have one that was longer, with just black rubber.

The Bex Cuff was born! I always cringe a little when I meet other Rebecca’s but when I met Rebecca Guinness she quickly became my closest other-Rebecca friend. I usually go by Rebs or Schiffers and call her Rebex or Bex so now I would just like to give credit where credit is due. Thanks Rebex! I miss you!

Origin of the Name IMK

All through his life- even when he was a great man with the world at his feet- he was to feel this gap: something at the bottom of his heart of which he was aware, and ashamed, but which he did not understand…

He was the eldest son, so he was bound to be knighted, but he would not call himself Sir Lancelot. He would call himself the Chevalier Mal Fet- the Ill-Made Knight…

So far as he could see- and he felt that there must be some reason for it somewhere- the boy’s face was as ugly as a monster’s in the King’s menagerie. He looked like an African ape…

His Word was valuable to him not only because he was good but also because he was bad. It is the bad people who need to have principles to restrain them. For one thing, he liked to hurt people. It was for the strange reason that he was cruel, that the poor fellow never killed a man who asked for mercy, or committed a cruel action which he could have prevented.

-“The Ill-Made Knight” by T.H. White

IMK stands for The Ill-Made Knight, Lancelot’s self-appointed epithet and book three of “The Once and Future King“, T.H. White’s version of the Arthurian legend. For years, I’ve known I wanted to someday have a jewelry line and call it IMK.
He was the eldest son, so he was bound to be knighted, but he would not call himself Sir Lancelot. He would call himself the Chevalier Mal Fet- the Ill-Made Knight…
