GOLD GOLD GOLD!!! After years of requests I've finally caved in and made some gold plated jewellery for you all. Holy shit these turned out amazing! And I'm not even a 'gold girl'. The Serotonin, Oxytocin, Caffeine, Chocolate, Dopamine and THC Necklaces now have a lustrous 24kt gold plated option paired with gold plated chain and findings ...
New Men's LSD and DMT Necklaces are up in the Aroha Silhouettes store! These necklaces have been specially designed for all the men out there and feature thicker, heavier lines and a longer more chunky style of chain.
A couple of weeks ago I teamed up with Dina and Chelsea to create a new promotional image for Aroha Silhouettes. I was starting to get pretty low on the 5x7" cards that I send out with my orders and since I have to order a ridiculous number at a time I wanted to create a new image for them that was less collection based so it could be a little more timeless. The necklace I'd made from the Aroha Silhouettes logo designed by Nubby Twiglet was the perfect solution!
After spending the last year and a half focusing Molecular Addictions on consumable molecules like THC, caffeine, LSD and MDMA I wanted to take a break from that side of things and take look at the molecules inside us.
Oxytocin, estrogen, serotonin and dopamine are all molecules that are produced naturally by our bodies and are included in the new mini collection; Molecular Addictions Inside.
For the photography I wanted to try to portray the molecules in more of a literal light and give them a visual interpretation. But I didn’t just want to do this by simply taking a photo! This time we shot the images with imaginary elements that would later be illustrated in by Paulette Arochena to help the molecules tell their story and give them a lighthearted spin.
THE OXYTOCIN NECKLACE
Oxytocin is a molecule that plays major roles in childbirth, lactation, mother-infant bonding and pretty much everything else maternal. I think the image for this hormone speaks for itself really! Paulette did an insanely amazing job of illustrating the breastfeeding baby onto Brittany in this image and it turned absolutely beautiful.
(Oh boy did I felt like a total creep emailing a gorgeous model earlier in the year to ask her if we could take a photo of her breastfeeding an invisible baby!)
