Street Art

Hey, there! It certainly has been awhile, huh? In an attempt to resume keeping this blog current and force myself to maintain the habit of adding relevant content, a new series is born:

Each week, I’ll put out the call via Twitter (@jenheartsart) and Facebook (Jennifer Hearts Art), defining a new theme for the week. Ideally, friends and fans will then post photos for the next several days, the best of which will be compiled into a corresponding post here. Let’s call it curating a collaborative collection (I like alliteration. Duh.) of themed mobile images.

Here’s the first: STREET ART.

(I intend to call for more street art on a fairly regular basis as the number of readers and contributors grows. There’s a great deal of amazing and occasionally profound street art in Austin and beyond, and I’m itching to show it off.)

And, last but certainly most significant, Esme Barrera memorial street art:

If you see any notable street art, or have a topic you’d like to see curated in a future post, please send it my way via a Twitter mention or email jen@jenheartsart.com.


Announcement! Custom Twitter bling available exclusively at downSTAIRS Apparel

Some of you may have seen my new, extra-fancy jewel-encrusted custom necklaces, and many have asked where to get them. I’m excited to announce that downSTAIRS Apparel is now the exclusive retailer of this Jennifer Hearts Art item!

Check out the photos below of examples. Instructions for ordering are at the bottom of the post.

Necklaces I made for Christy Butler (@cityjewell) and Jeff Strange (@StrangeTribeATX)

(I used yellow stones for Christy’s, inspired by the warm, neutral monochromatic color scheme seen on the cover of Jewell Magazine, and green on Jeff’s, reminiscent of the downSTAIRS Apparel logo. Both have a pewter colored chain.)

The one above is one of 3 pendants made for Emma, Lauren, and Courtney at Electra Beauty Lounge.
(I chose the iridescent Swarovski crystals for these because of their versatility and because they contain several of the colors found in the Electra logo.)

The red one is mine! ❤

(I used black chain on this one.)

Here I am wearing it with a couple of my favorite people (with whom I became connected via social media). 🙂
You can get the Twitter pins they’re wearing in my Etsy shop!

I’ve also made a hot pink one for @austincarrie. Here’s a pic of that when it was in progress:  http://t.co/sHT05wc

If you’d like your very own crystal necklace, customized with your name, Twitter handle, or website, downSTAIRS Apparel is taking orders. Each piece is $30 and will be ready to pick up 1 week from the date ordered. (Rush orders, ready in 3 days, are available for $10 more.)

Be sure to specify when ordering all of the following:

  • personalized text (exactly as you want the spelling/capitalization to appear on the finished piece)
  • stone color
  • chain length
  • chain/hardware color

Go in person to 3100 S. Congress or call 512-687-0489 to place your order!


Jennifer Hearts Art featured on Good Day Austin!

Did you catch the fashion segment on myFOXaustin this morning? Jennifer Hearts Art got a shout-out!
Click this link to watch it now: Trends in the Austin Fashion Scene.

Rachel Youens mentioned my Twitter jewelry at the top of the segment about current style trends in Austin, and showed a photo of one of my custom pins! (I think she said “Jennifer Hearts Austin” but that’s ok because it’s true. And now I may just have to start using that as an umbrella brand for all of the various projects I’ve been juggling, including this very blog.)

Get your very own custom jewelry, personalized with your Twitter handle (or name, if you prefer) by clicking on the photos below.

Also talked about in the same clip was TOMS Shoes, whose owner will be a keynote speaker at SXSW this year. What an honor to be mentioned alongside someone who does so much for others and is setting so many worthwhile trends. 🙂

Huge thanks to my new pal Dani for helping put my work in the spotlight! Have you seen her Etsy shop? Her magnets are a fun, whimsical mix of pop culture and fashion, and she also makes awesome one-of-a-kind rings using upcycled vintage buttons and other cute, funky embellishments. She has a cool blog, too!

I want the Zoolander, shown below.
