a mini installation on my wall: a tumbled mess of pleated cotton floral print fabric with woven belt -- i believe this may be central american.

the contrast, textures and colors are my current inspiration.


Element necklaces

Caramimi 2006 element necklaces

I must be lamenting my tropical home, as I made these necklaces with the hot, island beaches in mind. A little white sand, hot sun, golden tan and a straw hat. Ah, what bliss!

I've been rather obsessed with shells, wood, gold and silver. Displayed off a white dress, bikini, tank top and a tan is the right idea. When worn with other gold or silver pieces, these elements could work with in a Fall/Winter context, as well.

This small collection of Element necklaces are a jump-off from this aesthetic. Made of mostly recycled & found materials from my large bead and jewelry collection.

Available to purchase on my Etsy shop www.caramimi.etsy.com

Custom sharpie'd asymetrical tshirt dress by complex geometries, a design label based in Canada.

I love this dress and wore it till the hand-dyed garment suffered dinner stains. I proceeded to bury said stains with death by sharpie. Turned out ok for a quick fix, and totally get-down proof.

during my thrifty adventures, i found a pile of vintage linen squares that looked to be part of a swatch book for a textile maker. in great need of a little lumbar pillow, i made this with two opposing patterned fabrics. if goldilocks came by, she'd say this pillow was "just right."
