June 2012: Rabid Fox/Fleathers
June 22, 2012
There's a palpable wilderness about Linda Smyth, artist/designer of Rabid Fox and Fleathers. A combination of of-this-world and otherness. Her jewelry harnesses the ferocity and exotic beauty as only found in nature. Each design takes on a life of its own. A seemingly innocuous octopus engulfs an entire finger. Two bees buzz and kiss below knuckles. And those earrings! It was a night of totemic proportions. Ahmed Samy stopped in to spin for us, and we were under his spell. Everyone was moving, everything was alive.
