Welcome to the new website!

I am so excited that it is finally up and ready for all of you. Whats even more exciting is I am going to (i promise!) start blogging.

My vision for the blog part of the website is to regularly post articles, links, images and conversations around the intersections of jewelry design, fashion, trends, beauty image, and aesthetic in relation to racism, sexism, classism, homophobia and all the other bullshit of this world. I have been wanting to do this for awhile, as Alchemilla is a jewelry company that thinks critically about what it means to put things on our bodies, how we do it, why we do it, and the impact it has on us and the world around us. I will be exploring everything from cultural appropriation to tokenism, exploitation, fatphobia, privilege and gentrification. I will offer links, books, articles and further analysis to issues I care about. My hope is to broaden the conversation and to get all of us thinking and acting more critically and with more care & love in our approach to aesthetic and representation. Looking forward!
