South Carolina-based artist Jay Mohler is truly a master of Ojos de Dios, also known as God’s Eyes. Inspired by the Huichol natives of Mexico, Jay has been creating these vividly colored and intricate mandalas from yarn since the 1960s. I’ve recently become obsessed with these protectors from evil and started making one a day as part of my meditative routine. Jay has a great step by step tutorial if you’re curious about making your own!
Russian designer and stylist Natasha Goldenberg manages to put together a retro turban, an outrageous statement necklace, a killer coat and an adorable baby bump in the most covetable fashion. We just love that extra bit of quirkiness which makes her style so inspiring – it’s a great reminder to have fun, take risks but above all else, be confident!
We are honestly loving every piece from Lulu Frost’s Transcend collection. Playing with the theme of clairvoyance, designer Lisa Salzer has caged glass pearls in black metal settings, incorporated moody, cool colored stones, and featured crystal wing and sunburst motifs throughout. Not only is it a stunning and solid collection, nearly every piece layers beautifully with other jewelry, making it all so timeless and everlasting. And the lockets?! Don’t even get us started . . .
French-Tunisian street artist eL Seed has a unique style which he’s coined as “calligraffiti,” the combination of calligraphy and graffiti. His murals, which have adorned walls on nearly every continent, incorporate traditional Arabic calligraphy and depict fragments of Qatari poetry and Arabic phrases. His most recent work can be found in his book Lost Walls, A Calligraffiti Journey Through Tunisia where he painted 24 walls in 4 weeks. This first “lost wall” he used as a canvas was his grandparents home that has been abandoned since 1986. What a way to honor and bring life back into such a special place.
