Calisto Jewelry has a touching little story behind it, told by the daughter of the creator.
About a year ago, my father (45) came to me and showed me a piece of jewelry he made out of scrap metal. The jewelry junkie inside me felt like my world had just turned upside down.
I was full of surprise, admiration and love for my father who just lost his job but still remained a creative person that never stopped using his hands to bring some beauty and magic to the world.
From that day on we’ve been designing different types of pendants, earrings and bracelets, all inspired by mythology, ancient cultures, Indian tribes, Celtic symbols, etc. My father is a real modern polymath: he draws beautifully with both hands, carves sculptures out of wood, used to be a tattoo artist for a while and now, he makes beautiful jewelry.
There are some really stunning pieces in his collection, all of which are one of a kind (never duplicated), and he takes requests!
Sarah Sheil’s artwork has me mesmerized. Here is a detail from my favorite piece:
X-Presion, a unique, cutting edge hair studio, recently debuted a coloring technique that mimics colored pixels.
At this stage in my life, I doubt I’d ever be daring enough to do such a thing (and it might look a bit less striking on blondes).
Side note: back in college I had jet black hair, and when I went to a professional salon to restore my normal color, I ended up with something similar to this…and by “similar” I mean every color between blonde and black in splotches with no particular pattern. It looked like I’d lost a bet or fallen victim to a seriously awful prank. I wish I’d taken a picture.
Would you try this?
If it has “oddities” in the title, there’s a good chance I’ll go down a massive rabbit hole exploring it. Thus, Oddities Store was an enjoyable find indeed.
