Born in 1333 BC, he took reign when he was 9 or 10 years old. He married his sister (good idea) and then died when he was 18... due to an infection in a recently infected leg, or to a blow to his head?
You would hope that science would have figured that one out by now.
Thank goodness the mask discovered from his mummified body looked how it did, so Mara Hoffman could adapt this very significant print into what she does best.

Imagine having a friend, who could make you an incredible necklace, cast entirely from recycled metals, used ethically sourced fibers, which she just hand dyed in a saucepan, using the dye from a madder root...
Erin Considine would be that friend. Living and working in Brooklyn NY, with a mind to ensure almost every step of the process is finished by Erin herself, she uses recycled and manipulated metals, cottons and silks all ethically sourced and with this collection, braided using the meditative method of Kumihimo and dyed using the natural extracts of the logwood, cutch, madder root and Turmeric.

One of my favorite Milwaukee days of last year was spent with John on my 35th birthday.  We walked down streets we've never walked, went to the Metro Cafe, Pfister hotel and the Milwaukee Art Museum.  Been really loving it here.
