This weekend at the BUST Craftacular, you can ward off the blue Mondays with Mondays handmade ceramics! Brooklyn artists Jennifer Flore, Nina Lalli, and Signe Yberg create beautiful handmade ceramics for use and display. Each piece is a work of art, and no two are the same. Mondays creates bowls, cups, dishes, platters, planters, vases, and more. I’m loving their Green Bubble Plates, Triangle Vases, Confetti Cups, and Small Shell Bowl (all pictured here). Come see Mondays at the BUST Magazine Craftacular at World Maker Faire on Saturday, September 29 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Read More

Among some of the coolest accessories popping up this season are collar clips and necklaces, and I have the perfect designer to help you accessorize your favorite fall outfits. Brooklyn-based jewelry designs LAB by Laura Busony are to die for.  I cannot get enough of this badass brass claw collar clip.

Here in New York, the first signs of fall manifest in our wardrobes. Temperatures have dropped out of "sweat torture" territory, and cardigans are creeping out of our closets as things cool down.

You are cordially invited to join us at the third annual BUST Magazine Craftacular at World Maker Faire New York 2012. Read More

That happened.) and an amazing opportunity for crafters; your wares will be seen by approximately 40,000 DIY enthusiasts over both days (September 29-30) of this exciting weekend event. Read More
Have you ever come across certain rocks or leaves and wished you could just hang them around your neck or from your ears? Well, maybe not, but probably only because they needed a bit of tweaking before gracing your body. New York-based jewelry designer Irene of Metaxa does just this, translating the work of nature into beautiful, wearable jewelry. Her take on nature-as-accessories goes beyond the literal, incorporating natural forms in subtle ways. Read More
