Remember last summer when I fell in love with a pair of earrings at SFMOMA? Did I tell you I got them for Christmas? They were Mark Poulin's "Love Kitty" earrings, and though I couldn't get their image to save very well, I hope you can see a blue pair here. Kitties and hearts - most of my life summed up in jewelry.
I love them so that it's a great pleasure to bring you a couple of glimpses into Poulin's other work. Here, from top to bottom, is "Love Bunny" and "Dog Star." Could they be any more pure, charming, and all-encompassing? As Mies van der Rohe said, "Less is more." He was talking about International Style buildings (and they always need cheering up), but the idea translates exactly. So go check out some more of less, and find little gems of cheer, at Poulin's website and his Etsy shop.
His sketchbook is delightful, by the way.
