One of the most interesting mysteries of Death Valley National Park is the sliding rocks at Racetrack Playa (a playa is a dry lake bed). These rocks can be found on the floor of the playa with long trails behind them. Somehow these rocks slide across the playa, cutting a furrow in the sediment as they move. - Geology.com
Also, who knew cracked mud could look so pretty and cobblestone-esque?

Plastic trash vortex TWICE the size of Texas. Floating in the Pacific Ocean between Hawai'i and California.
Reduce people, REDUCE.
(Since this is mostly a fashion blog, you'd think I'd be a wasteful person, especially with my last post of just STUFF, but I'm really not. I hardly shop and buy only what speaks to me and what I can afford.)

Aran Baik, who has her MFA in Fashion and Knitwear Design from San Francisco's Academy of Art, created these knitted wonders for VPL's Spring 2010 show. Her cream and gray pieces cradle and climb around the body in such an awesome way and pretty much need to be on MY body. Let's hope Aran does a Urban Outfitters capsule collection like VPL's go-to jewelry designer Lizzie Fortunato did.

Awhile back I wanted a tattoo of a lion with octopus tentacles for its mane because I'm a Leo and I love the number eight. My brother was too lazy to draw it for me, so I Googled 'lion octopus' and this amazing creation was brought to my attention.
And because I love this fine illustration so much, I'm leaving it up while I'll be away in Los Angeles and San Diego! See you in a week, dudes.

Knotted up this skinny scarf in the car on the way to eat sushi. Spur of the moment creations are always the best. After sushi I felt like making jewelry so I laid my findings out and put this necklace together for Sasha. First time using actual tools! All necklaces before that were forcibly linked and knotted haphazardly together when chains were lying around. It was not good for my nails.

Not a material you'd associate with jewelry or comfort, but rubber creates an interesting texture when molded as a chain like the Eddie Borgo bracelets at top and appealing juxtaposition when paired with chains as seen in the Oak cuff in the bottom image.
