We’ve just got some amazing new jewellery pieces in stock from While Odin Sleeps.
We spoke with Designer and Founder Lauren Lester to learn more about herself and the brand. A great little read, with some humorous and insightful responses.
I am currently designing….
A line of pieces with leather. I use to collect rocks when I lived in Montana and I’d keep them in a small leather medicine pouch my mom bought me on a camping trip. So I’m working with a friend to make leather pouch necklaces so we can all be a kid again, toting around our favourite collectables.
I am reading….
Field Guide to the Common Insects of Texas. I just to moved to Austin, TX and that means a whole new world of foreign insects! I’m mildly obsessed with insects, mainly arachnids, and I love being able to identify them.
I couldn’t live without….
Cake. I know it should be something far more profound, but I’m a lady. And I hope I’m not overly generalizing when I say we sure do love our baked goods.
My greatest achievement to date is…..
Gosh, this is a tough one. I’d have to say walking the Comino de Santiago in Spain by myself. Being alone with your thoughts and void of familiar faces for that long really wares on you. You never realize how many demons you have til your days lack distractions. But once it was said and done I felt far more clear and complete, that alone is quite an achievement.
Minerals, mounted insects, and all things taxidermic.! I have a small natural history museum growing in my studio.
My next project is….
Dream catchers! Using horse hair,crystals, and dried flowers I’m working on making art you can hang versus wear. I’m pretty stoked about those.
