It's a Canvas, You Know... 

Next Time You Stand Before a Mirror, Envision Your Body as a Blank Canvas. The Choices You Make in the Clothes You Select, the Shoes You Slip-on, the Bag You Take, and the Jewelry You Wear Paint a Picture of Who You are. You, in Essence, are Creating a Composition. Elements of Design Such as Color, Texture, Shape, Tone, Line... all Come into Play.

So far, None of us are Cloned, Released from a Mold, Mass-Produced, nor Stamped-Out with a Cookie Cutter. Each of us is an Individual, a One-of-a-Kind. And why not let one's Jewelry Express This.

One of the Things I do is Create One-of-a-Kind Jewelry, and from a Variety of Old, Vintage, Hand Made, and Sometimes Unusual Materials. I React to Certain Qualities in, say, a Vintage Plastic Button, a Handmade Ceramic Bead, or Old Glass Bead. I call my Fashion Accessory Jewelry “Artisanawear. The Newly Manufactured and Mass Produced don't seem to have the IT Factor. IT is a Distinctive Quality, a Soul, a History, a Richness.

So, Let's Get Out the Brushes. Leave Run-of-the-Mill and Mass-Produced Fashion Accessories Behind, Express Your Individuality, and Let Yourself Shine Through the Crowd.
