Keep in Touch

by jennine on January 21, 2008


When ordinary objects are put to an extraordinary use, it becomes art. It ignites the imagination, shifts your perception, just a little. And really, that’s what art is supposed to do. It’s probably why Project Runway has become such a phenomenon, I saw once a great dress made out of candy wrappers (finally, candy and couture in one!)Touch is a Brazilian collective that does handmade objects with a twist. I just love how they’ve made a gorgeous necklace out blonde and black bobby pins (or kirby grips as they are called across the pond). And toothpicks and fishing line? Forgetaboutit… add pearls and you have a lovely fan.
This is the kind of stuff that brightens my day.
Spread the Love!

Wow, I am truly inspired I am looking now and have been for awhile to create stuff like this but, My style is more suburban like interior design with everyday ordinary things that could and or cant be recycled. I am working on a blog site since, wait maybe I’ll just start here. he he…
But yeah no more google for anything for me, darn pirates!!!
Planning on selling our information in the future and all.

This is one of those things you look at and wonder why you didn’t think of it. Simple, unique, amazing. I’m a hairdresser, so this is of particular interest to me.
