I was asked to participate in a DIY project on Buzz Feed this past week and the assignment was to make something out of old light bulbs. After a few weeks of brainstorming and basically asking everyone I talked to what they would make out of old an old light bulb, this easy upcycled light bulb necklace was my final product.

I’ve been seeing a geometry trend in everything from jewelry to product design to furniture these days. I love the clean, simplistic feel, but the different shapes still give a little unexpected character. Here’s a little round up of some cool 3-sided gems I think would be awesome to wear.
Yay for Fridays! Any fun plans?
I was introduced to a new website a couple days ago. It is fabulous, and appropriately titled, fab.com.
Heard of it? No? Ohhh man, you’re in for a treat!
For those of you familiar with shopping sites like Rue La La or Gilt Groupe, its basically the same thing where different companies have sales on it for just a couple days, except on fab.com the products are all super cool, well designed products (as opposed to clothes). They sell everything from jewelry to furniture to books to lighting to art to hair styling tools and everything is just, well, fab. A lot of the sales are from etsy shops, which I love. There’s so much energy behind handcrafted work and entrepreneurial businesses right now, and I’m totally all for it. They also sell vintage items and have a pinterest-type board for inspiration. Not that we need another pinterest….but in case you needed another pinning outlet…
Before you scurry off and look at it, let me show you some fun things I’ve seen over there the past couple days and am restraining myself from buying.
