Plurabelle Laszlo, the creator behind the Bliensen & MaiTai, is a goddess. Nothing less describes her level of talent in jewelry making. On a surface level her jewelry is gorgeous but what I particularly love about it is the humorous play on kink and the dark side that is evident in much of her work. Her charity items, of which 50% of the proceeds will be donated to Doctor's Without Borders, best exemplifies that aspect of her work.
If you are still reading my text, you probably need a break from my thesis. Tomorrow's Cherries all depict cherry blossoms (viginity - lol). What I love and you need to get close to the ads to really appreciate is Plurabelle's use of antique textures as the background for the blossoms.
The final piece she if offering at Culture Shock are the Yesterday's Bloom earrings. I love this particular style of earring that she creates as it works so well with the mod style clothes I love to wear, especially with its starburst segment that could be interpreted as the skeletal remains of a spent blossom (you can take this from here by now, lol).
Culture Shock remains open through May 22nd and is now very enjoyable to get through. For a map of the event and a complete list of slurls visit here. Each designer has provided at least 3 items where at least 50% of all proceeds will be donated to Doctors Without Borders.
