COOL RING!

Saw this ring on a Pinterest i think. I like the way it bends at the knuckle and it is gold and silver so it won't change colors on your finger. Happy with it! – Jamie Young on The Future Eve Ring

ADVANCED STYLE STARS ACCESSORY EXHIBIT NOW AT IRIS TRENDS

 My personal style, DRESSING UP, OVER AND AGAIN, is based on my what I call my ABC s...Assembling Building and Constructing using Color, Texture and Layering with my body as my armature.  Where there is creativity there are NO rules, where there are NO rules there is no fear.To me, Style is HealingDress to DE-stress. I believe Frugality is Fun and love working with sustainable materials which I have been doing for more than 50 years. These everyday found materials that show up in my environment speak to me.  In my creations, as well as my life, I am in playful exploration of beauty and ingenuity.  I am a maker and enjoy the process of getting my hands dirty while manipulating materials.  I am not a shopper but a searcher for things that can have another life through transformation, hence keeping them out of the landfill. 

To me everything is a HAT, be it a paper bag, a lampshade or a vase. They can all be inter changeable. I allow the materials to speak to me and then create forms that enhance the face. My philosophy is "FRAME THE FACE"

There are creative solutions throughout life.  It is wonderful to age with more freedom and vitality, wisdom and experience and eccentricity and elegance. IT IS better with AGE!

I have been featured in the film, "Advanced Style" as well as the 3 Advanced Style books. I have also participated in a TEDx Talk (Amsterdam 2014) with Ari Seth Cohen the creator of Advanced Style.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjbCvq_RZTM

NEW DESIGNER | DAIXA SOMED | SPAIN

Daixa Somed is an independent jewelry and accessories brand, created and founded by designer Daixa Morro in 2014. Each Daixa Somed design is its own, created by hand from concept sketch to final piece. Her jewels are designed for strong women with a feminine edge, who identify with sustainable luxury. Daixa Somed  believes that each woman is unique, and uses this thought process  to shape each of her designs. 

“My main philosophy is that everything be sustainable. The environment is very important in all areas of my life, not only at  work. All of my lines are limited editions and capsule collections, I don't like to mass produce."

 

Her designs use Eco silver, a recycled alternative to conventional silver. The natural stones Daixa Somed works with originate from responsible mines, where workers only work on a small scale;  caring for the environment is a priority for the brand.

MEET OUR ARTIST | CAROLINE PHAM

Launched in May 2015, ORA-C is a Canadian independent jewelry brand created by designer Caroline Pham. Caroline meticulously fabricates every piece by hand in her Montreal studio as unique wearable artworks. Her pieces are delicate yet bold, featuring striking color compositions. While Caroline finds beauty in the imperfections of the handmade object, her work is grounded in the value of excellent craftsmanship. Colorful beading, hand sculpted metal, and multi-layered fringes have donned ORA-C’s ever-developing collections. Natural stones she gathers from her travels have become a new fixture in the latest of her design evolution she calls the “Stone Series”. 

 "My ready-to-wear sculptural pieces are like mini paintings, enlivened by the person who wears them. I like to see my work evolve organically. It is an attempt to marry elegance with old craft, brilliant colors with simplicity, the exotic with my vision of modernity."
