So I think I'm going to start going by this #logo now, or at least give it a #betatest. @raellabella and I #designed it together (mostly her), so I really like it. Seen here emblazoned on a piece that will go up on my site soon. Any guesses as to what it's going to be? #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #rebranding #logodesign #designer #graphicdesign #yegfashion #yeg #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft

Don't throw it out, #mend it. I dug out my grandmother's old #singer #sewingmachine. It's practically an #antique, but everything on it still works really well, even the work lamp. I am #mending my favourite #jeans with it. Maybe I'll add some #boro for added #style points. #fashion #design #mstielow #sewing #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #menwhosew

I don't trust this #cucamelon, it's mocking my haircut. We're both channelling our inner #bobross today. #fashion #design #mstielow #greenhouse #plants #vegetables #locavore #locallygrown #fashionblogger #camo #mensfashion #bobrossingit

Everyone else is out there doing interesting things, and I'm just over here, #mending my #pants at work. #boro #sashiko #denim #makeitslow #slowcloth #slowfashion #fashion #design #mstielow #sewing #menwhosew #craft #alberta #stitchitdontditchit

My first few weeks returning to #academia have had me thinking about the nature of design. How do we do what we do as #designers, #makers, and #humans on general. This is what I've come up with so far. Behold the #designprocess in its most simple form. I call it the revelation model. My problem with most models is that they assume a design is ever finished. On a long enough timeline, we eventually realize that nothing is ever finished; it only changes shape. Whether that's for better or worse os up to us. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #yeg #craft #albertacraft #hecol250

The topic at hand this week is #illustration and the idea of the #sketch. A few years ago, I sat down with legendary #calgary #designer Jeff de Boer about what illustraion is. We came to the conclusion that illustration is more than putting #pentopaper, it is anything you do to get an idea into the world. You see, both of the images above are illustrations. One, a #traditional sketch on paper, the other, a sketch in #titanium and #silver. While some would call it a prototype, It was the first time I had visualized these earrings. No pen and paper. This was the sketch. Many great minds know that you don't have to draw to illustrate. From Frank Ghery, to Jeff de Boer, to you, each designer has their own process. Don't find a model that works for you, make a model that is a part of you.

I'm heading for a master's degree at the #uofa so prepare for some posts like this that deal with my studies. Today I'm blogging about taste... Senses are how we filter our world into information that the brain can use. Sight, sound, touch, smell, and taste: our five basic senses. Each carries with it a dual meaning. #Taste, for example, applies to more than just how we perceive what touches our tongue. Taste also refers to our perception of information gathered by all senses, and manifests in its own practical sense as our likes and dislikes. #Coffee drinkers, for example, have a favourite place to get theirs. It may be mostly contingent on flavour, but factors such as price, company #philosophy, and atmosphere can all play a role. These are all matters of taste. I like the philosophy of the #coffeeshop up the road from me, and I like their coffee, but I dislike paying more than $5 a cup. A friend of mine, on the other hand, goes there twice a day. That doesn't make either of us worse or better, we simply have different tastes.

I'm having a #bespoke #trunkshow at Awear Style Co. on Calgary Trail today from now until 4 pm. If you don't catch me here today, you can catch me tonight at #wcfw. I won't have stuff with me then, but I'm always taking #custom orders, no matter where you catch me. #yeg #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #handmade #albertafashion #albertacraft

These are a variation of my #Sol style #earrings. For now, let's just call them #Rain. They're very #lightweight despite their size, because of #titanium and possibly #magic. They have a small dot of #gold, because why not have gold? I'm a big fan lately of making earrings that are designed to stay on. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #original #handmade #fallfashion #alberta #albertafashion #yeg #yegfashion #albertacraft #raindrops #jewelry #madeincanada #metal #custom #ruralalberta

MOST RECENT

I don't do sales. A day's labour doesn't cost any less today than it did yesterday. My food doesn't cost less. My rent isn't cheaper. I have already paid full price for my materials. To celebrate the value of #handmade when everyone else is clamouring to undercut it, I give you another Malcolm Stielow #antisale
All my prices are 50% higher. Want to read more? Check out the Anti-sale page on my website. #fashion #design #mstielow #makeitslow #jewellery #blackfriday #yeg #yegmade #albertafashion #albertacraft #craft #maker #creative #alberta

Ready to go today, the very first of my Glyph #morsecode tie bars. They're not even available on my website yet, but this one is already spoken for.

And the giveaway winner by completely random selection is @amythist.dawn. This isn't her. This is @adengakuentok wearing the #morsecode #pendant that she will be receiving. The same style anyways. You can get one for yourself on my website. Bear in mind, my #canada150 pricing is still in effect.

For the #canada150 I am doing two things that I have never done before
A. having a sale on my website
2. Having a #giveaway. A free canada150 #morsecode #pendant.
Rules: check out my website's #150 sale. Like this post, and share it on Facebook, or tag at least three people on instagram. Plus, tell me what word describes #canada for you. I'll pick the winner at the end of the weekend.

I don't trust this #cucamelon, it's mocking my haircut. We're both channelling our inner #bobross today. #fashion #design #mstielow #greenhouse #plants #vegetables #locavore #locallygrown #fashionblogger #camo #mensfashion #bobrossingit

Here is a new, fun little #texture sitting on the #plant that #inspired it: #celosia. As always, this #ring is #handmade. This one was completely #forged, #filed, and #finished without using any power tools. #makeitslow

This is an Oilers Win ring. #forged #titanium with the word "win" cut into it in my #morsecode notation. I am making one of these for every game the #oilers #win in the #nhlplayoffs, plus something special for the #stanleycup, and if the #edmontonoilers win it all, I will #auction the entire set off for #charity. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #handmade #original #letsgooilers #oilersnation #edmonton #yeg #yegfashion #alberta #albertacraft #craft #gooilers #gooilersgo

Oddly enough, the catalyst that has inspired me to change the way I consume #textiles would actually be my #jewellery practice. #Jewellers work with such #expensive materials that they can't afford to be wasteful. On that note, here's @adengakuentok modeling my newest #chain style for my #morsecode #pentant

It may look like a simple band #ring , but it's actually #handforged and #filed from a sqare rod of #titanium from a sidewinder #missile, then #polished within an inch of its life. I believe in #upcycling and #zerowaste production. If I had to pick something I've changed in my practice recently, it would be that I'm being more strict on the policies surrounding those two things, not buying what I don't need, and using everything that I buy. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #handmade #craft #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #yegmade #yegfashion #yeg #slowdesign #slowfashion #makersforfashionrev @inthefolds

Do you have #patience to spare? Try #sashiko. That's what I'm doing this #weekend while I'm visiting #calgary. #fashion #design #mstielow #sewing #mending #yyc #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #stitch

Hey, I found a picture of that #custom forge-split ring I told you about @blindspotjewellery (for anyone who wants to know what I'm talking about, check out his page.

My first time at #westerncanadafashionweek. Met some interesting people and got some great notes. Looking forward to tomorrow's #emergingdesigner showcase. #wcfw #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #yegfashion #yeg #albertafashion #alberta

So here's a #sneakpeek at that big project that I said was #comingsoon. This is one of the #stunning pictures from my #photoshoot with @jared_b. Here's our #naturallybeautiful #model @adengakuentok wearing my #Rain #earrings like they were made for her.

Sometimes making is the just about only thing that gets me though a day. The inspiration isn't always easy to come by, but the satisfaction of having made something from your heart is worth the struggle. It's one of the greatest feelings there is. That, and love, but it's much tougher to take a picture of love. Here's a pair of #titanium and #silver #earrings that i finished at 1 a.m. Turned on a very tiny #lathe and #anodized in the stripes. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #original #handmade #yeg #yegfashion #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #luxury #jewelry

If you're going to be repping @fluevog shoes, you better up your #belt game. So i made an #iaido #belt to go with my purple hartfords. #fluevog #fluevogshoes #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #original #handmade #yeg #yegfashion #craft #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #mensfashion

Here's my take on #kintsugi or #kintsukuroi. I broke this #titanium #ring while trying to #forge and shape it, so i grabbed some small #gold scraps and melted them into the cracks. Then I cleaned it up just enough to see the gold, but not so much as to remove the beautiful fact that I screwed up. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #mending #handmade #yeg #yegfashion #craft #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #jewelry #jewelersofinstagram

Liquid rivet ring no.2 #titanium and #silver with white #sapphire. Setting stones is titanium isn't the easiest thing I've ever done. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #original #handmade #yyc #yegfashion #ring #engagementring #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #luxury

This is the iaido belt buckle with a September style belt. The first ones like it are going up for sale at the Crestmont Christmas Market down in #yyc. Today and tomorrow from 9 -5, @raellabella and I will be selling there.

Here's a #prototype of a molten riveting technique I'm trying to develop. The results have been promising, but are pretty labour intensive. #titanium and #silver #ring with an #emerald for some colour. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #original #handmade #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #yeg #yegfashion

So I think I'm going to start going by this #logo now, or at least give it a #betatest. @raellabella and I #designed it together (mostly her), so I really like it. Seen here emblazoned on a piece that will go up on my site soon.

Here's a look at a #custom #hairpiece I recently made with and for the beautiful @raellabella. She sketched what she wanted, and I made it real. All #titanium construction. We didn't take any pictures at the #wedding it was designed to be worn at, but she was nice enough to model it for me again afterwards. #fashion #jewellery #original #handmade #mstielow #modern #hair #hairaccessories #minimalist #jewelry #weddingjewellery #yeg #yegfashion #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #madeincanada #absofstielow #anthonyandbrianna2016

We all have someone in this world who, to us, shines brighter than anyone else. My brightest star used to have a pair or earrings like this when she was younger. So for her, I modernized and improved the design, and named them Sol earrings. As in sun. As in the star that outshines all others. I've been holding onto the design for awhile, but soon, they will be available to buy for your brightest star too. Or for you, so you can shine on. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #titanium #earrings #handmade #original #craft #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #yegfashion #yeg #shopyeg #sun #sol #brightensomeonesday

Probably one of the most nature-inspired pieces I've done in a long time, so I thought I would take a picture of them in my #orchard. These #titanium and #sterlingsilver #earrings have beautiful #amethyst stones set into the ends (I'll do a picture that shows the stones another time). The #twisted and vine-like earwires actually grab the body of earring when closed to keep them #secure. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #handmade #original #jewelry #autumn #fallfashion #modern #elegant #luxury #yegfashion #alberta #albertafashion #yeg #rurallife

Here is my personal #Glyph #morsecode #pendant featuring an upgraded leather cord fastener: slider blocks. Every leather cord option from malcolmstielow.com will now feature these instead of slip knots. Always made to match your #custom pendant. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewellery #original #handmade #titanium #titaniumjewellery #yegfashion #yeg #alberta #albertafashion #jewelry #luxury #luxuryjewelry

Prepping for some orders of my #Glyph #morsecode pendants. I cut and file evey pendant by hand. I always start an order by cutting dozens of blanks (there's about fifty in this batch) and then the customization begins. Want one of your own? Swing by my website and customize to your heart's content. #jewellery #fashion #design #mstielow #pendant #handmade #original #yeg #yegfashion #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #jewelry #customjewelry

I'm too excited about this #design to finish the second #earring before posting this. I haven't even had a chance to name it. With their #sterlingsilver and #titanium construction, I think these are #classy #alluring and #elegant with just a hint of #danger. These may be my new #favouritething . #fashion #jewellery #mstielow #earrings #handmade #original #alberta #albertafashion #albertacraft #yegfashion #jewelry #luxury #silver #jewelersofinstagram #womensfashion #canadiancraft

Introducing Ridgeline. Answer the call of the mountains with your very own piece of #handforged #titanium goodness. Available as a #bracelet or as a #pendant as part of the re-launch of my website. #comingsoon #fashion #design #mstielow #handmade #original #albertacraft #yyc #mountains #rockymountains #themountainsarecalling

Here's what the #buttons were for. Using some #vintagefabric from the early #90s I #handstitched my first ever #bowtie. This tie is #modular , meaning that I can pair either the #leather side or the fabric side with another tie half. Essentially, buying two ties is really like having four. #mixandmatch to your hearts content. They will be fully #adjustable in length, but since this is my personal one, I only made a couple of button holes. #fashion #design #mstielow #mensfashion #unique #vintage #upcycle #yyc #albertacraft #handmade #albertafashion #dapper

These #handcarved wooden #buttons are going onto a very fun project that I hope to finish tomorrow. Stay tuned, folks! #fashion #design #mstielow #handmade #yyc #albertacraft

Another #Glyph #morsecode #pendant is off to its new owner. This B-side special even has a #hiddenmessage for the wearer on the back. #fashion #design #mstielow #jewelry #handmade #original #custom #titanium #albertacraft #yyc #albertafashion

I started with #wool, sourced locally from #Carstairs #Alberta, worked late into the night turning it into a #handwoven strap, added some #handstitched leather, and the result is one #unique #handmade #necktie. This is what #albertacraft is all about. #yyc #fashion #design #mstielow #original #mensfashion #albertafashion #style

Here's a combination action shot of me #handstitching and #sneakpeek at my current #workinprogress. When finished, this probably will not be what you think might think it will. All I'm saying is that the black fabric between the #leather straps is #cordura #ballistic #fabric. Commonly used to make things #bulletproof. #fashion #design #mstielow #handmade #yyc #albertacraft

Here's a close-up of the Smith #buckle. #silver and #copper #mokumegane with #titanium structural pieces. The #belt is brown cowhide #leather with #handwoven white #linen strapping.

Out for a #timhortons #coffee this morning wearing a #glyph #pendant that says 'coffee' too. On my wrist, an as if yet unnamed #bracelet of my own creation, and a rail ring on one finger. Most importantly, I'm wearing a brand new #belt design. Meet "the Smith". Brown #leather and #handwoven #linen with #mokumegane and #titanium hardware. Closeups later. If you're curious, the jeans are #wrangler and the shirt is #frankandoak . #fashion #design #mstielow #handmade #original #mensfashion #luxury #luxuryfashion #dapper #yyc

Here is a simple open-sided adaptation of a d-loop #belt. Not only does it give it a #unique look, but it makes it easier to get on and off. #titanium hardware and distressed #leather strap. As always, #handmade and #handstitched. #fashion #design #mstielow #original #forged #luxury #luxuryfashion

Here it is, the first #belt in the #mstielow collection. It's unnamed right now, but it will find one before it hits the sales floor. #rugged dark red latigo #leather with sleek #minimalist #titanium hardware. All #original , #handmade and certainly #unique. #fashion #design #mensfashion #manly #luxury #luxuryfashion

I've been spending a little time settling into a new shop, but it is time to get back to the bench. I picked up a few new skills during my hiatus. Coming soon to the Malcolm Stielow collection... #leather. Stay tuned folks. #fashion #design #titanium #mensfashion #handmade #mstielow
