Getting to know...Odd Bird

Brand new, as of today! Headquarters will be carrying designs from The Odd Bird, a great little collection of jewelry made out of.....wait for it.... DOMINOS!!! Yes, I know what you're thinking "This is such a great idea, why the hell didn't I think of it!?" Dominos is just a weird game, but everyone seems to have a set at home, yet come to think of it very few people actually play the real game, everyone just lines them up and laughs hysterically as they knock each other over. What are we ... simpletons? Why does everyone love dominos anyways!!??

Well, now The Odd Bird has given us all an actually legit reason to love them...

The Odd Bird is actually a person named Tara Campbell. She created Odd Bird to fill a void, to keep herself busy and from going insane. These voids being the gaps between contracts in the Toronto animation industry. She also likes an excuse for any crafty project! (or Arts&Crap as she calls it)

Inspired by her parent's favourite game, Tara takes dominoes of all sizes and transforms them into wearable pieces of art. Each one is printed and coloured by hand. Perfect for those who want to stand out in the flock!

Tiny little pieces of art made from pieces of a phenominal game, what more can you ask for?

As one of the original owners of Odd Bird jewelry I can tell you I LOVE IT! Well made and quirky, wearing a one of kind piece is so very liberating in this world of rubber-stamped sameness.

The Odd Bird can give you your own special domino! DON'T BE SHY. I proudly wear a frog drinking lager and Elvis around my neck, not at the same time, although... that's not such a bad idea.

Great stuff! Someday I hope she branches out and I have enough money to buy one of her Swarofski (sp?)Crystal domino pendants!

Get one now!

Go Odd Bird Go!
