My holey Snoopy t-shirt that I got when I was in Venice and 6 years old that is hanging together by a few threads. Although I will never toss it out!

A clean out!

About Lucy Folk:
Lucy Folk’s childhood was spent behind the scenes of her father’s café where she made macaroni necklaces and hung cherries off her ears. After graduating with a major in Gold and Silver-smithing, she travelled to Berlin where she interned with Chicks on Speed before returning to Australia to launch her eponymous range of ‘wearable food.’ Lucy creates her pieces by electroplating tasty morsels like pasta and popcorn in fine layers of metal before casting them in solid silver and 18ct gold. Dubbed a “standout” by the New York Times, and recently nominated as ‘Accessory Designer of the Year’ by Marie Claire magazine, Lucy’s ‘bling’ pendants have been spotted on rapper Snoop Dogg and British singer Lily Allen, Lucy. Off duty, Lucy can be found exploring the globe, cooking up a storm, and kicking back with a Hendrick’s gin and tonic (with a slice of cucumber) to the sounds of MIA, Santigold and The Rolling Stones.
