Colour blocking as a trend – I just cannot seem to pull it off.
When I have tried to do it myself, I just end up looking like someone who doesn’t own a mirror, or like someone who lets themselves be dressed by a 4 year old. Yikes.
So, I was super excited when I stumbled onto the amazing Boo & Boo Factory jewellery by Christina Anton. How gorgeous are the shapes and colours? Her range of earrings and necklaces are definitely a beautiful way for me to jump onto the colour blocking bandwagon. I need a few of these in my collection.
What Christina says of her story:
“ I graduated with an architecture degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago and I now attend the Southern California Institute of Architecture for my masters. I am an artist at heart, constantly exploring and expressing myself through other disciplines. I love mixing patterns, prints, colour and form. Boo and Boo Factory is how I can experiment with what I’ve learned in science, parametric design, nature and of course, architecture. I like to play with different forms and create unique and eclectic compositions with leather. I also love combining different styles such as native, urban graffiti, 60′s mod and a little bit of a Barbarella Clock Work Orange futuristic space feel. I absolutely love vintage art drawings and diagrams of plants, cells, animals and other organisms. I also love anatomy and taxidermy. I am inspired by anything from vertebrae, plant cells, biomimicry to abandoned factories and urban wastelands. Places where people wouldn’t normally find beauty unless you really look. “
How rad. I love this lady, and her art. Bookmark Boo & Boo Factory Etsy store? Tick!
