2016 i+s Wish List

Double Thorn Ring by Renee Frances

I’m a huge fan of both nature and awesome jewelry, so the Renee Frances Echinopsis Collection, of which this Double Thorn Ring is a member, grabs my attention. Created by casting a piece of dead Echinopsis cactus and modeling brass, silver, and gold around it, the aesthetic is minimalistic yet unique. I’d wear this ring every day.

EOS M3 by Canon

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I travel—a lot. One of my favorite parts of seeing new places is noticing those little-known nooks and crannies in a city, or catching just the right angle to make a well-beloved monument look new. Mostly I snap pictures on my phone, but lately I’ve been wanting to take it up a notch, which is why I chose the EOS M3. It’s small enough to fit in my carry-on, but with enough bells and whistles to satisfy the photography-minor part of myself I left in a past life; I’ve definitely hinted to the North Pole that this would be a great addition under the tree.

Canon | $429.99

Aura Frame

With all those photos I’m hoping will come courtesy of the Canon EOS M3 comes the need to display them somewhere in my home or office. That’s where the Aura comes in. I mainly like it because it isn’t like other digital frames; it only picks the most photogenic photos, so out of the 50 pics I take of my sisters and myself standing in the same place trying to get the best light, only the frame-worthy ones pop up.

Aura | $399

Keren Hasson Illustrations

I’m a huge fan of original art, especially art by those just getting off the ground. I got to know Brooklyn illustrator Keren Hasson’s work via Instagram over the last year or so, and I’m hooked. Hasson’s illustrations are phenomenal, mixing dark fantasy with just a bit of whimsy. And luckily, through the magic of the internet, they’re available on everything from clocks to prints via Society6.

“In the Company of Women” by Grace Bonney

OK, this one is a bit of a cheat because I own it. I bought this book the week it came out, and it’s been my constant companion on my desk since then. However, I added it here because my wish list includes the wish that you all check it out. Written by Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney, this beautiful tome highlights more than 100 female makers, artists, and entrepreneurs. It’s kind of like doing the superhero pose to ramp up your confidence: Whenever I feel like I need an emotional pick-me-up, I flip through this book to glean advice on picking myself up, dusting myself off, and working toward what I want in life.
