Who is stoic & pariah?
We're a couple of people who like to make stuff. Our real names are Franklin & Elizabeth. We just got married, and so far it has proven to be quite awesome. Elizabeth is the visual artsy crafty sort, and Franklin makes beepy-sweet jangly music. We like to collaborate, and teach each other stuff. This blog is where we share what we make, document our projects, and explore our creative do-it-yourselfy sides.
We also have an etsy shop under the name stoic & pariah, where we
sell our cute & quirky brooches and things. Elizabeth started making brooches to go with her many cardigans, and decided to open up shop and make them for you, too. (check it out!). One of our brooches was featured in the blog Delightfully Tacky. Pretty exciting stuff!
(Franklin also makes music by himself, under the guise of Project Nemo - check it out here.)
Where is stoic & pariah?
We live in a grand old
farmhouse in the Pacific Northwest, where the floors always creak and
the sky is always grey. We've lived under sunnier skies before, but we
prefer it up here. We were both born in San Diego, moved around a lot, and for some reason, we both ended up in the small town of Marysville, Washington. The weirdest part was, we met on livejournal, completely unaware that we lived in the same town. Once we figured out we lived so close, we hung out, made music, went on breakfast dates, and inevitably, got married. Now every day is like a really fun sleep-over, and we can make things together, whenever we wanna! Pretty sweet, huh? I'd say so.
