Bay Area Writer & Entrepreneur gives new life to unplayable records by rescuing them for creative reuse.

  SANFRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA—Have you ever wondered what to do with those scratched, cracked or unplayable records? Local crafter, Heather Jacks, is giving new life and new homes to these once-loved musical treasures in the form of record bags, purses and writing journals. Heather Jacks loves collecting old vinyl records, and she especially likes to rescue the ones that are no longer playable. Based out of her San Francisco studio, Jacks, cuts, sews, rivets, finishes and hand crafts records into beautiful, one-of-a-kind treasures that connect her clients to their favorite band or musical genre in a completely unique way. “At the heart of what Rock A Record is the idea that people love things that are tangible and concrete, things that tie us to different memories, experiences, or relationships,” Jacks says. “My pieces are the perfect embodiment of that idea, and nothing brings me more satisfaction than watching when someone picks up a record purse or writing journal at my booth and lights up.” Jacks’ believes vinyl is the perfect medium for connecting with people looking for a special memory.

Is the Jesper Watch Kickstarter a Joke

The Jesper Kickstarter campaigned launched 12:01AM EST on Friday April 1st, 2016. Check out the campaign, here. You ask your friend what time it is. Instead of looking at their expensive watch, they pull out their iPhone. We don’t use watches to tell time anymore. So cut the fluff. Wear a Jesper. It’s timeless. The Jesper watch lets its defined polished looks do its explaining as to why it’s a staple of modern fashion. Opting out of telling time altogether, the Jesper leaves room for only the essentials that make this watch the statement that it is. The Jesper is no joke in terms of specs. Featuring a heavy 316L stainless steel watch case enclosed in sapphire crystal glass (just like the Apple watch) and a genuine leather strap, the Jesper does look good. Then again it can’t tell time. So there’s that. Are you ready to make a statement without making a statement? You can pre-order your own Jesper today. The watch costs $79 (versus $99 retail). You can order the version with an extra charcoal grey strap and desert sand tan strap for $89. Have a friend who wears a fancy watch they can’t even read? The Jesper[…]
