Boom. Proof that when the creative crew goes on a surf trip down south, you get a whole lot more than the standard pics of a bunch o’ dude holding Victoria cans or the occasional sub-par sunset shot. Behold, some sizable shots from photographer Jorge Salas in the land of waves and honey (you’d be safe to assume we’re talking about Flor De Cana at this juncture), where empty breaks out-populate drivable roads….a little place called Nicaragua. Enjoy- you know these lucky mofos did. Then come back soon for more to come.

indigo

What’s black, white, and bohemian all-over? It’s the new jewelry line Indigo Child from NY’s Brit. An eclectic collection of earthy stones, silver, fringe and occasional fool’s gold. We were so smitten with the line, we thought, “we must tell the Gatsby’s about this!” ….

-In 3 words, describe Indigo Child.
Brit: To describe what an indigo child is, cannot be done in 3 words, so for anyone who doesn’t know, please research it via google etc.. But to describe my line in 3 words. I would say flattering, interesting, simply wearable art.

-What influences your designs?
Native American jewelry, Tibet, Thailand, Africa, India, weather, dreamcatchers, feathers, wild animals, nature, the outdoors, mountains,the 60′s and 70′s, music, freedom, peace, love, indigo!, warrior spirit, life, beauty, the ocean, shells, rocks, stones, crystals..

- When did you start designing jewelry?
About 5 years ago. I’ve always had a love for buying jewelry just to take it apart and make something else out of it.

- If you could only keep one piece to wear forever, which would it be?
O jeez, this is an extremely hard question.. So hard!! I guess I would go with the dreamweaver necklace in silver/grey. Its soo wearable! And goes with everything dressy or casual!!

- If you could design for any celebrity, who would it be?
Stevie knicks. heart. The XX

- Know any good jokes?
Knock knock. Who’s there? Indigo child. Indigo child who? Indigo child is amazing! Indigo child is amazing who? Indigo child is amazing beautiful handmade jewelry and is available now only on swell.com!!!!!!!! Hahhahah
