Wanna know a secret? I’ve got a fabulous jewelry designer on Sew & Tell today! (In fact, just between us, she might be the best-kept secret in Chicago fashion… but you didn’t hear it from me.) Sarah Fox of Cursive Designs started out as a sculptor, studying at the prestigious Art Institute of Chicago. While there, she translated her talent for creating unique three-dimensional designs of lines, shapes, and space, to a smaller scale and began working with jewelry. Sarah’s creations are original, incorporating references to vintage deco designs and sleek ’60’s mod, while remaining thoroughly contemporary and fashion-forward. Her pieces have been featured at Anthropologie, and even she did a custom creation for the Of a Kind webshop – a gorgeous hand-died lace necklace. On today’s show, Sarah will share the “trade secrets” of her process, where she finds inspiration for her wearable art, and the influence of Keith Richards on one special piece. Plus, a fabulous play list full of new singles, in anticipation of the upcoming year’s new releases! We’ve got tracks from Heartless Bastards, Rival Sons, Lissy Trullie, Lana Del Rey and more. Stay tuned to Sew & Tell for the dirt on all the latest and greatest in design and music. This is one secret you’ll want to share!
