beth hoeckel.

I just came across these unique collages by photographer and mixed media artist, Beth Hoeckel. Although some pieces look digital, they were created by using cutouts from vintage magazines and books. Simply paper and paste.

These quartz crystal necklaces range from $240 - $450.

 Although I would love to own one of these, I forgot to write one in on this months budget. So I made my own.
I bought a small piece of quartz from the local jewelry store for a whole dollar and already had some metal wire around the house. I just wrapped the wire firmly around the quartz, twisted some things around, threw it on an old chain, et voila.

The result it slightly more organic than a designer piece, but you just can't beat the price.

Tip : Pick out a crystal that is a little distressed or disfigured at the top, this makes it easier for the wire to hold on. If you don't have any wire, a roll is only a few dollars at any craft store.

Some of my favorite Fall looks from fashion week thus far.
