I'M HAPPY TO SAY, IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER STUDIO TOUR FEATURE! I ASKED JASMINE OF RICOCHET WAVES TO GIVE LUNE READERS A LOOK INTO THE SPACE WHERE SHE CREATES. I'VE NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED WITH THESE PEEKS INTO THE PLACES WHERE DESIGNERS SPEND THEIR TIME. JASMINE'S SPACE IS PACKED FULL OF TRINKETS, TREASURES AND NATURAL TEXTURES. IT'S A PLACE TO MAKE A DIVINE MESS, AND I LOVE IT!
THIS STUDIO IS VERY REFLECTIVE OF THE ARTIST, AND THE WORK THAT'S MADE WITHIN. IT'S THE REAL DEAL. JASMINE LIVES BY THE MOTTO, "EACH OF US AFFECT THE NEXT". ISN'T THAT TRUE? HOW DO YOU WANT TO IMPACT THE LIVES OF OTHERS?

WHO, WHEN & WHERE
Jasmine McCaffrey started Ricochet Waves in 2009 while living in Chicago. A collector and creator with a background in Graphic Design and Painting, her projects always involve mixed media magic.
The Ricochet Waves shop moniker was inspired by the wheat fields in her root state, Kansas: when a storm rolls in it sets the fields in a rhythmic waving motion of pure nostalgia. "Ricochet" captures this visual but also aims at including our sincere connection to each other- past lives and how each of us affect the next.
THE WHY & HOW
Jasmine considers re-purposing and recycling to be the core of each creation. Fancies from the past are combined with handmade additions giving a robust and deep-rooted story to each piece. She believes that nature and natural history are vital to the process of making a most sincere one of a kind.
(alpha bravo charlie echo) GYPSY DISCO 2012 is the newest collection available in the Ricochet Waves Etsy Shop. This series is weaved together with the use of hand cut and hand painted bamboo as beads. When her artwork, wearable or otherwise, is simmering,Jasmine spends her day creating flower arrangements for a family owned flora land landscape design shop. Full circle, the use of bamboo in her jewelry design was conjured while creating Ikebana arrangements. You can keep up with her other inspirations and curator’s eye collection over at the Ricochet Waves Blog.
Along with introducing GYPSYDISCO 2012, Jasmine has just opened a new Mixed Media Artwork Etsy Shop.
