Born in Germany, Micha Kuechenhoff, made her move from Berlin to California 10 years ago and ever since she has been putting her creative mind to good use. After developing a knack for sewing, painting and cooking soaps from a very young age, Micha began to design her signature look: “knots that tie non-traditional and vintage materials into fashion which equate the fresh and original pieces”. Micha’s patient and caring attitude is what makes her designs so detailed and one-of-a-kind. Not only can Micha turn any trinket or charm she finds into a wearable masterpiece, she also keeps a “Go Green” state of mind. Using materials such as recycled fabrics, home decor, and worn fabrics, her designs are hard to forget.. From simple to intricate, each necklace has its own personality and feeling, only adding to the idea that they are “conversational pieces”.Micha was kind enough to give me 2 gorgeous necklaces. Thanks Micha. Check out her website here.
"Without hope, not only gays, but those who are blacks, the Asians, the disabled, the seniors -- the 'us's' -- without hope the 'us's' give up. I know that you can't live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. And you, and you, and you have got to give them hope." - Harvey Milk, "Hope Speech," 1978
Forty screenings of "MILK" have been organized across California by Courage Campaign members just like you on Saturday afternoon. In many of these communities, participants will watch "MILK" and then walk or drive to "Light Up the Night," the nationwide candlelight vigils organized by the Join the Impact to draw attention to the 18,000 same-sex couples who were married in California before Prop 8 passed in November.
