La Carmina is a blogger, author, journalist, TV host, fashion designer and cool hunter. She’s a brilliant young woman who was accepted into Yale Law School at age 20 & graduated with a J.D. She also is a travel & pop journalist for CNN, Huffingto, AOL, and Lip Service.

Be sure to check her site out ( especially the videos. My current favorites are:

1. The one in she co-hosted with Andrew Zimmern: Bizzare Foods (Travel Channel)

2. The one for Canal+ France (yes, she speaks French)

3. Weird Wisconsin


Now, about the hair accessory

I baked the polymer clay face myself, then torched it, and speckled it with silver paint

Then I hand-beaded the piece, stitched the Swarovski crystal pearls and some additional beads, before I attached it onto the multiple layers of silk organza fabrics with carefully burned edges.
