This was a great collaboration. My oldest and dearest friend, Dax Savage, is an amazing artist and creates beautifully organic jewelry from antique ivory, feathers, metal and precious stones. With makeup artist Juanita Lyon and shot by fashion photographer Kathryna Hancock, we got to stretch our creative muscle for this editorial story loosely based on tribal traditions and adornment. Here are a few unretouched images from our shoot this week. I'll be sure to post some of the finished images once they are worked on. Special thanks to our Ford model who had just moved to LA from stints in Brazil and Italy who was all at once gracious and served it!
