What I'm Working on, Just for you!...

Just a few of the new items I'm working on, and adding to the shop soon!

Chinese Lantern Inspired Evening Purses... LOVE!

The Fold Over Envelope Clutch - new style added with a long strap to be used as a shoulder purse!

Long Brass Necklace with pearl:

DYEing for Blue!  It's all about the blues, obviously my favorite color...



I'm using remnant fabrics to make the bow tie pins.. so cute!


Envious of October birthday's gemstone, I'm so in love with opal these days. This iridescent stone reminds me of vintage perfume bottles.  Opal comes in almost every color imaginable, though I favor the white opals which consist of soft cosmetic colors.
So Beautiful!

I even found nail polish that looks like opal, obsessed!!

About Me

My photo
All of my items are hand crafted by me in my Brooklyn, NY studio. I believe in USA hand made, supporting local, and supporting quality. All materials I use are sourced and purchased from vendors in the USA. I truly am inspired so much by nature. Just walk outside and there's millions of things to be inspired by, whether city or country. At different points in my life, or year, or day I can look at the same thing and see it in a completely new way. I realize Im not the first person to be inspired by nature, but I find it amazing how we can all be inspired so uniquely by it. I am a pretty practical person; I feel designs should have form AND function. I USE all of my designs to ensure ease of use, aesthetic appeal, and versatility. If at the end of the day I don't love it, it goes back to the drawing board; or on the back burner; or just tossed on the 'prototype' pile. I also make sure all my designs are items I personally would love to give as gifts.
