  • One-Of-A-Kind
    I carefully select each component from found bits and pieces, factory cast-offs, vintage fabrics, lace, charms, organic materials, natural stones, wood, and more non-traditional "green" materials. All pieces are unique and handmade by local artisans and designers, including myself.

BOHO CHIC.... A New Series

I love the Bohemian Chic style! It is really how I define my look. I'm also happy to say that it is back in fashion! What is it? I wanted to start defining this look by saying that it is about how YOU put the pieces together...MIXING color, prints and patterns, hints of different cultures - eg.a little Japanese floral print, with vintage American lace, a Victorian stripe... Bohemian means with a carefree more "wild spirit", adventurous and out of the box...bending those rules...definitely having an ARTISAN handmade flair. THE FINISHING DETAILS can style up the look - accessory choices...
