Nicology in action

This fence, made with a car hood, pieces of oil drums, bits of corrugated siding, and who knows what else, is beautiful. I can imagine thise fence in an urban art gallery with a contemporary art-speak analysis as to how it represents a meta-analysis of the semiotics of the fallacies of post-industrial illusions harbored by the global elite, and concretizes the unrealized collective imaginings of the cybergeneration´s links to its materials past. Or something like that.

So this is me, in case you didn´t know. Leydi was into the necklace she was making and didn´t look up.


We are starting to create our own designs to display in the bottle caps, based on photos of objects transformed. Celena had painted a series of hearts with wings on the scrap metal back fence of her family´s house, and it seems a fitting symbol for how their will to thrive persists.

graphic cascade

This necklace uses caps from a small town in Bavaria, mixed with graphics from a Spanish design magazine.

Make an impression!

If I wear one of these out on a Saturday night people can't stop looking at my chest...for the stunning necklace, of course!

Cute little critters

OK, so this is some of the magic that comes from whimsy. Is it a latter day teletubbie?

2 in 1 bracelets

The graphics on the back side of these caps come from Patadeperro, Managua´s cultural activities magazine. The name means dog foot, and if you like to go out a lot you have pata de perro. A little Nica cultcha for ya.
