Here we are, friends. The last day of our month long foray into “Bringing the Sunshine In.” The finale of the month is always a bittersweet moment where we can reflect while still celebrating. Plus, finales are always the best, don’t you think? Today, we wanted to share a special artist with you whose passion is reflected not only in the work she creates but in the lifestyle she lives.
Katie Hinkle lives in Austin, Texas with her two rescue dogs and boyfriend and, coincidentally, creates some of the most dynamic and elegant minimalist jewelry around. Her shop, Sloan + Tommy, is named after said rescues and there is a connection between her passion for pets and her talent for design that is married perfectly in her pieces. One cannot simply create simple beauty out of whimsy or a half-hearted desire to generate income. Rather, as Hinkle shows, one must have an innate sense of structure and form and purity. This Neutral Triangle Necklace absolutely sings, if you ask me. Every piece in Sloan + Tommy is a study in bringing the sunshine in, don’t you think?
