All can glitter, if you make it gold

After my surgery, I was eager to plan something in New York. I have been thinking about this concept all throughout my recovery period and knew that Yasutaké Kosaka was just the man to pull of this amazing hair concept.

He created two amazing wigs that were absolutely beautiful. It was wonderful to do a street shoot again, I don't think I have done one since I was in school. I think the people of New York definitely got an eye full when our team walked down the street. It's not ever day you see a beautiful girl in a shinning gold wig! Well maybe less out of the ordinary in New York.....

Blood Milk Jewels that we used for the shoot.

Hey New York! We roll with our heads in boxes

We get a little weird after a long day of shooting! 

Look out for the published images in Esthétique Magazine issue 8.

BloodMilk by J.L Schnabel

So recently I have been emerging myself in the blogs of fashionistas, artists, designers, and psychopaths and upon my journey I found J.L Schnabel's Blog. She is a delightfully insightful and inspiring jewelry designer and artists from Philly. She creates jewelry from vintage or found pieces and are uniquely cast.

I had approached J. L. about using some of her pieces in the gibson house photoshoot. However, thanks to the soul less cretins at the US Postal Service, that wasn't possible. There was a masterful issue with the shipping and we weren't able to receive the package until after the shoot.

I wanted to at least do some test shots with the pieces while I had them. Here are some of the photos that I took of J.L. Schnabel's jewelry.

Please check out her Etsy account for more examples of her work!
