When Sara Dudzinsky isn't busy making magic for her earthy chic jewelry line Better Late Than Never, she's in the kitchen dyeing up a storm. We're not talking Manic Panic, either - her M.O. is bundle-dyeing, aka eco-printing, which involves wrapping plant fodder like flowers, maple leaves, and even onion skins in fabrics and gently soaking them to produce to-dye-for prints. Check out her super-easy guide below (and start rounding up those peony petals while you're at it). READ MORE

Most of the pieces in her collection, called Pax, are glazed with an ombre wash of color that's inspired by the state's magical sunsets and sunrises, which Mia tries never to miss. The other main inspo? A handful of West Coast potters (okay, and one European who inspired them all). G'head - dive in. READ MORE

But her approach is about much more than what you uncap in the shower - so we asked her how she keeps her own hair looking practically reflective. READ MORE
