Betony Vernon is one of my favourite jewelry artists. I simply love her work!!! She designs the most exquisite, beautiful, classy, elegant and debauch jewelry. Not only refine jewelry but also delicate tools, not only pleasure tools but a work of art. For Betony Vernon sexuality, erotica and sensuality is a state of mind. It's about creating an mature, elegant and sensual sexuality, about engaging our body and our whole life as a temple and an endless ceremony of sexual pleasure.
Here you find an interesting interview with Betony Vernon on the importance of ceremony.
I miss summer... the light, the heat, the warm breeze, easy living. I want to be in this house with friends, enjoying the cooling shadows after a hot day, cooking in this kitchen, having long dinners at that table with bread, olives, vine and talking til the break of day. Ooohh just imagine :-) This is the home of interior-designer Marilyn Katsaris on the Greek island Tinos. I love how nature and architecture are mixing in this bathroom.
Photographer, stylist, performer and designer: Darla Teagarden. She makes wonderful dreamlike styled pictures in between Weimar Decadence and Dark Cabaret. I love her handcrafted sets: little theater-stage-like settings, painted backgrounds and paper-dresses. She says only 5% of her work is made digitally. A dress made out of cupcake-forms and paper-lace! with small images of "lovers eye" on the bottom of the forms... amazing!!!
A poetic, romantic and truly beautiful view on the art of seduction by Vee Speers. The art of seduction fascinates me. I love the game — you can dress yourself up and act out a role, and that sets you free to create your own stories, your own mysteries. And it gives you power. I tried to capture all that when I photographed these women, none of whom are models, as such."
