Of course most photos are also available as standard prints- but why limit yourself? Shower curtain, $85 Leggings, $50

Crescent Moon Knotted Leather Necklace, $250 Oakland artist Holly Bobsuthi hand crafts big, chunky, not-quite-abstracted statement necklaces in moons, evil eyes, and more. Of course, she also makes the itsy bitsiest little moon rings you ever did see. I’m in love with her moon phase designs, which somehow look almost like a person when strung […]
