Cooler weather is already creeping in here, and just a couple weekends ago we made our last treks to beaches and sand. First we camped at Cedar Point near East Hampton, then returned to our barn in Bridgehampton to seal the deal on relaxing before school and work and schedules take over. We got to quickly run into the South Fork Natural History Museum before heading home, and promise to spend more time there next summer.

My dad has been unwell, and things have been stressful. I had to leave “my littles” behind in NYC and go ahead to Boston for a few days. Coincidentally an old friend lives nearby and offered me a room to stay in. Her company and her inspiring house kept my mind off of hospital stress; offering a reprieve from it all.

Efharis Alepedis is an old friend and a phenomenal jewelry designer. Her sister Betty Alepedis-Stoukides makes gorgeous paintings and leather jewelry from Greece – where she lives fulltime. And Effy curates all these amazing things in her home in such a sunny way, I had to photograph it all. I do love her ongoing collection of jewelry by new designers… so inspiring! The cut leather necklaces and paintings on the wall are Betty’s. The sea urchins and silk worm cocoons are Effy’s favorite materials to work with. And all the other pieces labeled with pencil on the wall (and cut wood necklaces and bee/honeycomb ring on the table) are work by young designers that Effy and Betty find and enjoy. One of my all time favorites is the white china plate that she hangs in her kitchen. With perfect disks cut out of it, the resulting necklace hangs next to it.

I couldn’t help but include a shot of the streets and houses around her home… so ‘New England’ .. I felt like a kid in my old neighborhood again.
