weekly wrap up

weekly wrap up + geometric nails!

by Grace Bonney

Tomorrow Kate is heading back to California, so I’m feeling a little down today. Amy and I have had an amazing two weeks with our best DIY buddy, and I find myself wishing her next project would be “how to build your own portal between Oakland and Brooklyn.” So to lift my spirits, I’m focusing on some good news: the geometric nails I wished existed DO!

After my post on decorative flower nails this week, I heard from Valerie and Annie who designed a gorgeous set of solid brass equilateral nails. I’m not sure how I missed these at ICFF, but I’m sure glad I’ve seen them now. They’re sold in sets of four and are about to be easily available online in less than two weeks. I’m going to update this post with their online shopping link as soon as they’re up, but I couldn’t resist sharing them now. How cute are these? I wish all nails came with decorative heads like this — they’re way more fun than regular nails. I’m looking into how hard it would be to make these as a custom order, but if you’re a metalsmith and need a fun project to work on, please please make some alphabet nails. Pretty please? Thanks to Annie and Valerie for sharing these with us, and stay tuned for an updated shopping link (they will be sold in sets of four) in less than two weeks THE NAILS ARE NOW AVAILABLE RIGHT HERE! (Annie and Valerie’s collection also includes the beautiful angled brackets below. How gorgeous are those?)

Until Monday, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! xo, grace
