Brooklyn cinder block


I want to tell you about Max Steiner, one of my favorite new designers whose visionary buoyancy sheds new light on his innate talent to see outside the box. When I was first contacted by Max, about a week ago, I did what anyone would do. I browsed his website. And as an artist, was instantly drawn to the various elements of his inspiring collections. Conceptualizing the simplicity of paper folding, Max tells me, "Folding paper since I was five years old has led to my ORIGAMI collection, one of my most popular. Working in an industrial neighborhood in Brooklyn has led to the development of the CINDER BLOCK collection." And the results are flawlessly executed. Not only does he incorporate an organic wearability through his architectural jewelry, but the fact that he does so with such an influential voice of his everyday surroundings, adds an extraordinary amount of intimacy that's hard to come by.
Thank you, Max for my rad new cinder block necklace. I sorta refuse to take it off! It's always fun discovering something with such understated complexity that you never knew you couldn't live without until the moment you did.

About the Artist: A native of New York, Max Steiner Design has been featured in The New York Times, Nylon Guys, The Chicago Tribune, Elle, and is available with several retailers.

Amazing post, baby! I'd been wanting to see you in that jacket. I love the texture of the skirt, especially in the context of the largely concrete background. I thought the boots looked pretty cool in the pictures, but they're way more amazing on you. The necklace is so cool...still excited to see it in person. And you're a beautiful girlfriend!!! And, of course, your writing is fantastic! This entry should have 23041980419483 comments.

Hey there Bella, nice write up. I like Max's jewelry a lot, but honestly the first thing I was drawn to was your big ring. It's a nice color stone set in silver, and big enough to have real impact.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Watercolor Wonderland x Nasty Gal

Still in shock...  Apart a from my instagram sneak peeks, it's been torture keeping this secret, but now I can finally share the amazing little fact that yours truly was featured on the one and only Nasty Gal (falls out of chair)!! When I was first contacted by NG and asked to design a few exclusive illustrations/paintings, I'm pretty sure my response was some highly intelligent verbiage falling along the lines of, "Wha-um-can't breathe. OMG am I dreaming?" But okay, here's a totally cliché moment... dreams come true!
