For better or worse, I'm one of those people who thinks cemetaries and churches are really cool. I ended up "appreciating" St. Pancras for much longer than I anticipated due to a well timed rainstorm.

My obsession with collecting started early...I come from a family of collectors and we often spent family weekends at flea markets and tag sales and that resulted in an apartment I’ve been in for 16 years filled with my obsessions!!! So when I was thinking about making jewelry I literally just looked around me and used pieces from my apartment to make accessories! You can look at these photos and see where my influences come from and how where I live directly affects how I live and even how I dress!!! And my workshop is in my kitchen so I’m continually surrounded by inspiration! And luckily can work all@hours of the night since I’m an insomniac!!! (Photos by @rayonrichards!)

Here's some pics from my vacation in montréal.

The 1st is a video of #LaGrandeRouedeMontréal ferris wheel. Touristy I know, but hell it's my first time in Montreal. 
The next pic is Marché Bonsecours which is equivalent to our South Street seaport. A tourist trap, nothing special.

Next is of Notre Damede Bonse Cours chapel (Our Lady of Good Help), one of the oldest churches in Montreal built in 1655 burned burnt down in 1754 & rebuilt in 1777. It totally reminded me of Regina Pacis in Brooklyn

Then there was the Biosphere....slightly underwhelming.

Next was Basilique Notre-Dame de Montréal which is Montreal's equivalent of St.Patrick's. It was beautiful with It's lighting. They've got a light show at 8pm that wish I got to see.

Then Schwartz's deli. I really don't understand what all the hullabaloo is about this place. 45min wait during the day, 20min at midnight?!? I got my order to go, snapped a few pics, and movedon.org.

Next took a walk to the "Gay" Village. I kid you not, that's it's name. It's a lot more dirtier & rundown then it's NYC counterpart.

Their China Town on the other hand was a HELL of a lot more cleaner but smaller then ours, about 10 blocks long.

Next up was the odd architecture of the Habitat 67 apartments. If I knew any better I would have booked a guided tour. Behind the apartments there's the man made #standingwave that attracts kayakers & surfers from all over the eastern seaboard.

Lastly there was the Redpath Museum.....slightly underwhelming.

I draw inspiration from SO MANY PLACES but I do have some very specific obsessions that run through my work! And Bones, Insects and Dolls are most certainly  a top 3!!! When I was young I studied to become an entomologist and planned on spending my life studying insects but then I became a teenager and started to become obsessed with fashion and my fate was changed!!! I’ve also always loved creepy forgotten dolls, and walking through the woods and finding bones and skulls...So having spent most of my life collecting these things I wanted to  figure out ways to marry my obsessions with my work!!! And insects became wearable jewelry and creepy dolls became purses and neckpieces and found bones and skulls became elegant death rock inspired jewelry fit for Siouxsie Sioux!!! ALL these pieces are BRAND NEW and will be with me at my table on the second floor of the @bkbazaar for the flea!!! .

We did a little excursion with the folks when on the Lower Zambezi up towards the escarpment on the ‘alternative’ route. There just lying around the track is numerous huge fossilised trees from the Karoo period. Amazing to still see rings and knots in the trunks and I imagined a shady forest of giants in what now is African bush.

So I was driving from a mushroom farm to my mechanic (true story) and out my window I spotted this scene and then the picture before this, the yellow Mustang, and I thought GOTTA STOP TAKE PICTURE but there was nowhere to stop so I kept driving and reprimanding myself for being a coward for ten minutes until I reached my mechanic, half hour early, decided that was enough time, turned back around, parked at a church, and walked through this neighborhood like a crazy stalker taking pictures of the harmonious palette of nature and manmade things.

The intricate shapes of Indian architecture are truly something grandiose. Laborious detail took months, even years to complete as the magnificence of the Amber Fort was shaped over time.

Tour of the González-Byass bodega in Jerez de la Frontera. The González-Byass firm is the owner of the Tío Pepe brand, one of Spain's most well-known Sherry wines. The visit includes a tour of the area where the barrels are (where the magic happens!), an explication of the "solera" process, the legendary Sherry-drinking mices (it's true!) and, clearly, a wine tasting! Protip: pay a couple euros more when you reserve for the additional tastings, it's totally worth it!

Mark your calendars. Two weeks from now. The next #odditiesfleamarket sponsored by #ripleysny #atlasobscura. I’m bringing new one of kind pieces I don’t post online.  Really well stocked for this market and very psyched.  See you there.

One of the mediums I started working in in the past few years is Stained Glass!!! I learned how to do Stained glass when I was about 10 or 11 years old !!! My mother taught me and I hadn’t done it in a few years but just recently I thought “ How can I make stained glass in to something wearable?” So I started creating  smaller wearable glass pieces! Skulls and crosses, bats and pentagrams  in many colors and configurations and then incorporating them into my jewelry! !!! I love making stained glass, it is however a LONG PROCESS but I love the idea of taking a sheet of glass and through cutting and grinding and soldering, turning it into something wearable !!!! I also started making “cobwebs”! My love of spiders collided with my love of collecting vintage frames and I started making these to be hung and displayed in your home!!! I will have both wearable Stainglass pieces and pieces for your home with me at the fleamarket on December 1st and December 2nd!!! .

...John Cougar Mellencamp recently came through Brandon. His career must be winding down if he is playing a venue in Brandon, Manitoba. 
Not Larry and I walked into the concert just as they announced his name and he came out on the stage. We headed to our floor seats. However, Manitoba must be the most boring province of any place in the world that calls itself a province. Everyone was just sitting through the show, and they would only stand up when they recognized a song. Sometimes they would half-stand and then sit down when they realized they had not actually heard the song before on Bob FM.
Not Larry and I were at the very back of the rows on the floor, and we were the only two people standing up and dancing through the show. We had fun. We stomped our beer glasses when they were empty and we were slapping each other on the asses to the beat of the music: behavior that was quite taboo in this place. An older lady later came to have fun and dance with us but not long after, security asked her to sit down…the Fun Police were lurking about! 
John Cougar Mellencamp was great. He has adapted his music to suit is now worn and raspy voice. The show was very bluesy and had plenty of hits that got the locals from half-standing to a fully stretched posture.
Besides the music, much of the merriment which Not Larry and I had was from making fun of the concert-crowd and the way they took in the show, with very little excitement at all. They may not have shown you, John Cougar aka John Cougar Mellencamp aka John Mellencamp, but you were great!...

The Weiße Rose (White Rose) was a group of student rebels at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität. It was led by siblings Hans and Sophie Scholl, who encouraged non-violent resistance against the Nazi party.
•
On February 18, 1943, the Scholl siblings were handing out anti-Nazi leaflets at the university when the Gestapo came to arrest them. As the Gestapo approached, Sophie threw her leaflets into the air. Four days later, Hans and Sophie were executed by beheading.
•
These replicas of the Weiße Rose leaflets are embedded in the cobblestones outside the university to remind us to think for ourselves and stand up to injustice. And to remember the leaders of non-violent resistance.
•
The first time I went to see this memorial, it was a school day and hordes of students were continuously walking over it. I went again today, a Sunday, without a soul in sight. Someone had placed a rose on it.
•
Thanks to @atlasobscura bringing this awesome sight to my attention and giving me all sorts of ideas for things to see in Munich.

Today I’m going to give you a peek into what I do, what I love, what I obsess over and how the environment I live in directly affects my work! First a little about PUREVILE! I started the company about 9 years ago as a reaction to struggling as a clothing designer, I started to make accessories out of pieces around my apartment that I collected! Mostly just for me and friends to wear out to club nights in Manhattan! I’ve always been obsessed with vintage pieces and have scoured flea markets for years buying pieces wrought with age , so now began the process of how to turn theses objects into wearable art! So that drive combined with my fashion background and my forays into the Goth underground , PUREVILE! Was born!!!! Here’s a few photos of pieces and people that encompass what PUREVILE is!!! Stay tuned all day for a peek behind the curtain....🖤💀🖤

Before Muriel’s was a fine restaurant, it was the home of Pierre Antoine Lepardi Jourdan. After losing his home in a poker game, he committed suicide on the second floor. This table is always set for his ghost who haunts the restaurant to dine at. It can also be reserved.

last week I went to see a musical in prague; first they had a dog on stage. then about seven white pigeons. (and the dog) then there was also a white horse and last but not least an actual carriage with two beautiful brown horses. trotting across the stage at several moments.. I thought it’s as weird as it gets.. until I got to witness this flower market that turns into a bird market every sunday in the center of paris. this world doesn’t stop astonishing me what we still do and what’s still possible. #atlasobscura #kathmosparis

It's been a busy past few weeks of planning for our upcoming adventures! 🗺 
One thing I'm particularly excited about is the Copper Bracelets that @TravisBluemling and I have been making since the Summer. They are now 20% off until end of December with the code "HOLIDAYCOPPER" (Link in Bio!). $3 from each Copper Bracelet purchased goes towards building a school in Nepal, and we're now partnering with a nonprofit called @buildOn to make this happen. Get some Christmas shopping done early via the link in my bio/insta-story! 🎁

One of the hidden places in Prague is literally one step from shopping center Novy Smichov at Andel. Just go to the first floor and then over the bridge. There is park with really nice and not common Prague views and playground with one of the longest slides in town.

Here a link to a short documentary we published with Atlas Obscura. Very happy of this great adventure and the results of it.

The last Jewish synagogues in Kolkata, India are maintained by Muslim caretakers, a fit that's more natural than people in their communities might assume.

⁣Ancient Rome has a history of rich metal work. In Pliny The Elder’s encyclopedia “Naturalis Historia”, the metallurgy section stands the test of time, and is regarded as the most extensive collection from the Ancient world. As centuries progressed, styles changed, and this gargoyle doorknocker became popular in the middle ages when superstitions ran high. It had a duel function; the first being to announce the guest and the second to ward off evil spirits.⁣

"The Romans staged spectacles of fighting gladiators, a practice they were given by the Etruscans, not merely at their festivals and in their theatres, but also at their banquets. That is, some would invite their friends to dinner and to other pleasant pastimes, but in addition they might witness two or three pairs of gladiators. When they were all sated with dining and drink, they called in the gladiators. No sooner did one have his throat cut than the masters applauded with delight." ⁣⁣⁣

Popular in the seventeenth century, a winged skull was emblematic of the belief of the deceased continuing their existence into the afterlife. Memento mori, a Latin Christian concept, is represented throughout Europe mostly in the form of a skull. This particular marble piece of funerary art rests a within church in Rome, Italy.

Sa Calobra is an unusual part pebble/part sand beach situated at the end of a gorge made by the Torrent de Pareis. It is one of the most famous spots on Majorca.  The water is truly THAT amazing! And there are a few places to jump off the gorge walls into the  ocean.  If I click my heels together, maybe we can go back. #Majorca #Spain #bestvacation #sacalobra #my3sons #atlasobscura
