Beard & Braid

I am so excited to let you know that two of my most talented friends and collaborators have officially launched their online store, Beard & Braid

Beard & Braid is photographer and jeweller Sonya Nagels and illustrator/designer Toby Morris, who have both been part of Extra Curricular over the years (who knows how they find the time – these creative high-rollers have their fingers in so many pies it's hard to keep track!) Sonya is a photographer and interned as a jeweller in Amsterdam. Toby works as an art director by day and an illustrator by night. This store features their individual work, as well as prints pairing Sonya's stellar photography with Toby's top-notch hand crafted type. 

They are giving away the limited edition print All day Everyday to their first TEN customers to celebrate the launch. It's a piece that celebrates simple pleasures. A cup of tea and a gingernut. Sitting on the porch. Sunshine. Limited to a run of just ten, each print is individually numbered and signed by both artists.

And they're selling paintings by their sons Iggy (1) and Max (3) too. Why not? It's a family shop. Max is raising funds for a new digger, while Iggy is working towards some new dinosaur toys.
