Anyone who’s visited us at our design studio in Byron has probably met out right-hand-wonder-woman Natalie (she’s also the smouldering Amazonian like goddess in the pics above). Spelly and I don’t know what we’d do without her.  Her energy calms and grounds us and she is the force behind a lot of what goes on behind the scenes at Spell HQ.
The Tee she’s wearing is our Thunderbird Totem Tee and we’re so excited because it’s our very first collaboration piece. The image on the front of the tee is designed and illustrated by the gorgeously talented Julia Keddell of Little Navajo Blog. Based out of New Zeland, Julia captured our totem perfectly – we love the signature Spell imagery of crystals and the delicate feathered bone breast plate which is a strong feature in our range this season.
Natalie wears:
White Pharaoh Charm Bracelet
Thunderbird and Black Onyx Earrings
Colorado Horn and Quartz Earrings
Lost Treasure Coin Ring
Woven Prism dream catcher in background

 Q&A With Julia Keddle of Little Navajo:

What do you think about when you’re designing for a collaboration like this?
I love collaborating on projects like this that allow you to be creatively free to produce artwork. So I guess I think about the brief, the client’s customer and what I would like to wear and combine all that with current inspirations that I have in my head. Once I’ve got my direction I don’t really think a heck of a lot – I like to start illustrating and see where that goes, and from there I can adjust and collage the illustrations when I photoshop them for printing.

How did you know we were putting little quartz crystals  in our collection this season haha?
I wish it was because I secretly lived down the road from you in Byron Bay and had a peeping tom view of your workroom, but it’s probably more along the lines of the fact that we both love quartz crystals!

What is your all time fantasy ‘i’m living my dream’ job?
It’s quite achievable and currently being ‘fake-but-real-planned’ with a lovely friend, starting up my own island dream of creative work and play… and I would definitely make it so that 4.30pm was Bintang and beach sunset time. I have it pretty good getting to escape into my creative zone and create illustrations for amazing people like Spell & The Gypsy though!

If a superhero had a blog what would it be called?
Haha probably… ishouldbesavingtheworldbutimonhere.blogspot.com
