The other day I was listening to NPR and caught some interesting news. MOMA has "acquired" the @ sign into its design collection. In a nutshell, MOMA has honored the humble @ sign for its history, usage and design. Did you know it's been around for centuries? Neither did I! Read about it here. It's fascinating to read how the @ sign was used before becoming a symbol of the internet age.
In honor of MOMA's acquisition, I've designed two @ sign shawl pins, (because I couldn't decide whether it should be a penannular or have a separate stick)! And you know what a new product means, right? A sneaky sale. :) Details at the end of my post!
The cool thing about the @ sign of course, is that even without the meaning, it has a beautiful and clean line to it.
The camera loves it.
And I had so much fun shooting it!
I couldn't decide which pictures to use.
So I ended up choosing quite a few.
Here's the version with separate stick.
I wore it to knitting the other day and a graphic designer friend loved it, even though he doesn't knit. You can buy your own here or here. They come in copper, nickel, brushed nickel (only the penannular - my favorite) and sterling silver. If you don't see it right away, shift refresh your browser and it will pop up.
And the sale? Through April 16th, take 15% off your purchase of $15 or more when you enter the code TAXTIME at checkout! Patterns not included.
Tune back in very soon to hear some cool news about a new project. I'm excited!
