Bone Couture

Anna Raimondo of Smith Jewellery actually studied at university at the same time as me, and consequently we’d often pass each other in the hallways since the graphic and jewellery design students all worked in the same building. i always envied the jewellery designers, who were basically making art out of jewellery. what could be better. it’s been […]
