The Auxo Collection

i'm so excited that after a lot of work i can finally show you our latest collection over at paper and chain- the auxo collection. it's built around little solid hexagons shapes, on little rings, earrings, bracelets, a necklace with vintage sequins, and a collar pin. the collar pin is my favourite piece, it looks so good on a nice shirt, i've tried it on a few-cream, pink, denim- and i love it on all of them! i also made a look book over on issuu, so you can have a look at that if you want to see more of the photo shoot we did for the collection.

Be Mine

can i resist a cat themed phone case? no, no i can't. i'm adding this one by leah goren to my wish list- right away. i'm sure you've seen leah's signature cat print around and about, maybe on a pretty little dress in anthropologie? well now you can have a pretty little phone, too. 

right now my phone is dressed up in leah's other cat print from iconemesis, and it's been that way since  it was given to me for my birthday in april- that's got to be a phone case record (for me, anyway). leah + cat prints = match made in heaven.

Richey Beckett

i recently discovered the artwork of richey beckett because i follow his girlfriend on instagram- this couple happen to have the cutest kittens known to man. seriously! look! anyway she posted an adorable little place card he had drawn, which i loved. i found out by looking at some more of his work that it could hardly be described as adorable, but it is dark, magical, and awesome. richey is an illustrator from the south of wales, and he works with pen and ink in painstaking detail.
