Méret OppenheimObject (Le Déjeuner en fourrure) – Object (Breakfast in Fur), 1936. 

The work’s concept originated in a conversation among Oppenheim, Pablo Picasso, and his lover and fellow artist Dora Maar at a Parisian café where the café’s social role was discussed, and at which Oppenheim was wearing a fur-covered brass tube bracelet, the pattern of which she sold to the fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli. … Picasso complemented the young artist on her fur bracelet, and flirtatiously observed that there are many things he enjoyed that were improved when covered in fur. Oppenheim responded, tongue in cheek, by asking, “Even this cup and saucer?”

My two newest torc bracelets!

The one on the left is made by Cruzan Gold, which I got while I was away earlier this month.  It’s made of sterling silver, brass, and copper all twisted together with knots for the ends.

The one one the right is made by Wulfhund Jewlery.  This one is pewter, and takes the wolf head design on the ends from Scandinavian and Nordic designs found in ancient viking art.

So I was swiping through one day, I’m really picky, and I wasn’t getting anywhere fast, until I saw this one guy, he’s a pagan like me which is a rare ass find on social media, to find one so open about it, and be attractive and smart and classy too. So we immediately hit it off, and this is a couple days before fathers day. I still hadn’t got anything for my dad, and this guy works at a t-shirt printing shop in town. So about 2 days after we match I decide I’m going to stop in when I know he’s working and take a look around for a shirt. I walk in, and there’s only one guy in the entire shop so it’s obviously him, but I kept looking around for another dude because there is no way that this attractive as Fuck guy is the one I managed to get, but he walks over and introduces himself, and he says “you wouldn’t happen to be…” and I say I am and we sit down and design my dad a bomb ass t-shirt. As I’m at the register, he asks me if I’ll still be in town around 8 and would I like to get dinner with him? And my stomach is in my ears at this point so I nodded and said I would be, I’d like that, and then paid and left. As soon as I was out of the store I realize I forgot what time so I text him and ask him the time again and he confirms.
Fast forward to 8, he gets off work and we go to Chipotle and talk for a good hour while we eat. Then we walk around town and talk more, by now it’s getting dark, but there are still people milling about downtown so I’m perfectly at ease. Then we go to the little meditation garden and sit on a bench awhile and just feel the night around us, it was a beautiful evening. And he’s making a huge deal about how tiny my hands are, like fawning over them.
He turns to me and says “a couple weeks ago I got a fortune cookie that said I would find love soon. And then a week after that I was walking home from work and I found this brass bracelet on the ground that had ‘love’ written on it and I thought, yes, very funny, universe, thanks for that.” Then he pulls this bracelet out of his pocket and says “I have taken to carrying it with me, in hopes it might bring me closer to someone, but I didn’t know how anybody could ever fit into it, Its so small, but I’m thinking it just might fit you with your small hands.”

Designer, Photographer, Hiker. The Midori notebook has really been great. I have made some of my own inserts and their paper does well even with fountain pens. Atwood tools are a great story of a one man business, harder to get a hold of these days tho. The light is simple and inexpensive, but it’s a small enough company that they pick up the phone if you have a problem. I’ve already had one replaced for free after the bulb on the first one went out after a few years. The knife is simple and nonthreatening. I went through five or six iPhone cases before I found the Magpul. I used my previous one for three years solid. It’s the right amount of rubber without being obtrusive and the rubber is the right amount of sticky, but not so sticky you can’t get it out of your pocket. Hudsalve is amazing stuff, if you don’t know about it look it up. Hillside, Filson, and Tanner Goods are classics in the making. The Leica, Rolex, and Montblanc are about having usable pieces of art in my life every day.

This is my latest set. Not only one, so it’s bit hard to call it ‘everyday’… but guess everyone here knows how hard is to choose only one option. Anyway, this is one I like the most. Had a problem with multitool in proper colour and then I realized I gotta anodize the crap out of Leatherman ;)
