I wanted to jump into this editorial after spending the last two weeks back East. I love everything about this!

In his “Pour” series, New York artist Holton Rower masterminds the pouring of successive layers of paint onto three dimensional objects. The results are psychedelically awesome works of art but it’s the process that is truly captivating. How badly do you want to dive right in and have a few pours of your own?
We’re nuts for nuts. Is there a more versatile and inexpensive DIY component than a hex nut from the hardware store? You can imagine our excitement when we first discovered Philip Crangi’s Giles & Brother Hex Collection. Honestly, nuts braided into jewelry is WTF genius! With a few items that we always seem to have lying around, we tackled the technique and made our own spine-like braided hex nut wrap bracelet.
- 3 strands of cotton butcher’s twine cut into one yard pieces
- 18 small brass hex nuts
- a bit of dexterity!
Always a sucker for anything western, I love this editorial. I’m headed to the small town of Nogales, Arizona in a few weeks to get fitted for a pair of my very own authentic and custom cowboy boots at Paul Bond. I can’t wait and will be sure to document the experience for ya’ll. Giddyup!
