2 collections of Dried Fruit Jewelry

Love that artists explore with just about any medium and material.  Gorgeous, edible art! Reminds me a bit of RingPops.

Using only a silver ring and a dehydrator, a jewelery designer transforms fruit into wearable art. These rings are made with a simple silver ring that is then topped with slice and segments of various dried fruits. The results are completely edible and play with the notion of jewelery as a precious art. Each ring will slowly decompose and eventually disappear if it isn’t eaten first. The rings are made from fruits such as oranges, plums, kiwis, apples and beets.

Business tips for Women

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Came across a new blog today: BizChicksRule which links to many more in her blogroll. Learn about networking, self-promotion, business planning, marketing+branding, career management, and much more. Wow, I think I’m only now discovering (or finally realizing) the vastness that exists on the internet…

Relates to my previous post and the Design*Sponge resources.

Thanks Design*Sponge!

Last week I attended the Design*Sponge Biz Ladies event in Boston hosted at West Elm (D*S Boston Event). Great info from local women in the design business about marketing yourself and being an independent designer. Also, some tips about making an online presence (Secrets of self-promotion at Wired.com) Thanks Design*Sponge!

Unfortunately schedule is over for the summer. Can’t wait until next time!

But until then, check out online resources from Design*Sponge Biz Ladies
