Natural Inspiration

Today I'm working hard to finish up the first batch of Jellyfish Earrings to go on sale in my Etsy shop, hopefully by the weekend I will be ready for my first ever photo shoot so I can have at least a dozen items listed within the next couple of weeks. Until then, I thought I'd share some inspirational photos I took on another random Thursday.

  Once apon a time, when my hair was green and I didn't know how to focus a camera, a few friends and I took a trip out to a place we aptly named "The Vale". I'm sure it had a real name, but to us nothing could suit it more than the name we chose. Driving towards old Tranquille in Kamloops, we made a turn down a back road and an old highway that I later learned would take us beyond city limits and into some strange places... but on this first trip we went out to the vale to explore the nature around our town, to find the kind of inspiration that comes from a random adventure with close friends. On the way back I made my friend stop his car, so I could snap a photo of some graffiti on a sign.

For three years I've looked over these pictures, for three years my eyes were drawn towards the hastily scrawled graffiti on that sign. "Rezoning Application" it says beneath the words of whoever began the   tagging. Was it two people, one writing loveless and the other sensing that loveless was incomplete? Or was it one tagger, just writing random words on a sign? And what ever could it mean? It was the only tag of "Loveless Arachne" I'd ever seen, and it stuck with me.
What is Loveless Arachne? To me it's knowing your strengths, and persevering beyond what others perceive as weakness. To be loveless isn't weak; to be loveless you must be stronger than everyone else. You must be aware of yourself and take care of yourself, because no one else is going to do it for you. Because who would ever dare to love a spider?

Welcome

Hello, and welcome to Loveless Arachne, the home of Crochet Lace Jellyfish Earrings! This is the very first blog post on the new Loveless Arachne blog, hosted by Blogger.

I've been a so-called blogger now for years, lurking about eye-balling other interesting blogs of note, and randomly posting on whatever interests me at the time. My personal blog, Terribley Titled, is where you can find my random thoughts and posts on most anything and everything - until now. Now you can find all my design, art, DIY, and fashion related posts here on Loveless A, and pretty soon you'll be seeing me on Etsy too.

It has always been my intention as a designer to be the kind who designs with curves in mind. No woman is a stick, even at our skinniest. It's my goal to prove that funky, fun, and accessible fashion can be made available to any woman, size 0 to infinity. I believe in harbouring a healthy body image, and how better to do that than to dress in a comfortable, stylish and personal way? I always look forward to a personal custom job whether it's for jewellery, apparel or costuming.

Check out the About page if you want to know more about the mission here at Loveless Arachne, or if you want to know a little more about me personally.

If you have any questions feel free to contact me, info found on the contact page.

You'll be hearing more from me soon!
