ARPANA RAYAMAJHI  William Esper 2020 🎬 Cooper Union 2015 🎨 Jeweler 🌸 Chameleon. Contact for all things fashion @poolcreatives

Hey! Remember me? Was looking @thesartorialist and voila! What a wonderful reminder of how long I’ve been wearing tartans for.

Three years ago I made the sculpture (minus the beads) for my senior thesis at Cooper Union. Before that I was an aspiring musician with crippling stage fright. After drawing/ painting and sculpting for 4 years I became a jeweler and now I’m studying acting. Life is odd but incredible if you’re always looking to learn more. Tomorrow is my birthday and to see how much has happened in this short period of time is incredible. And what’s more incredible is how much I still have to do. πŸ™πŸ½ Plaster / acrylic/ beads

At least 1,200 men in ceremonial attire have danced at a mainly Zulu gathering wearing a mix of hides of illegally hunted leopards and Chinese-made, spotted capes designed by conservationists to reduce demand for the real thing.

This year has been a wild one. I have quietly, secretly been working on a lot of projects while simultaneously balancing acting school. It’s a lot of work to say the least. That’s what I know how to do best: WORK. But I am also being very careful to not overshare to give an illusion that I am constantly producing work like a machine. I don’t quite like that. And I don’t really believe that it’s necessary to always show too much in order to feel like your work has value. Social media and today’s rate of consumption is so wild and I feel as an artist that it’s my responsibility to also not partake in this culture and time of excess and consumption. It’s a fine line and a really difficult decision to take and follow through. My self worth is directly tied to my work and my ideals that might not necessarily fit in this cannon. But I have to be honest and somehow believe that despite the fact that Popularity and numbers matter- quality and growth matters much more in the longer run. So I not only decided to backtrack a little bit with my jewels, I also enrolled in acting school which has given me a sense of purpose and a sense of self that is very gratifying. It’s been a while since I shared new work but voila! Here is one series. My love for πŸ† print goes back to when I was a teenager and really loved punk rock. I still do, so here is an homage to a culture and lifestyle that will forever influence me. To everyone who is reading this - thank you for still sticking around. My work would have no place in this world if it wasn’t for all of you who have continually supported me despite my sporadic participation in this thing called social media.❀️

Interrupting plaid/ tartan for some πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†. Super excited to share some new work. Coming soon.. more like tomorrow! 😘 I know I’ve been slow with the jewel game because I’m in acting school now but I promise promise promise I haven’t stopped making work. ❀️

Today’s work look is brought to you by faux fur and tartan
