change is in the mind.
a new year coming means nothing.

my 2009 was crackin', my 2010 will be, too.
know why? cuz i will continue my present momentum AND increase it.

ya'll don't get it.

you have to get down and get dirty.
making change? glamorous, the shit aint.

it takes constant work and constant building off of mistakes.
it takes having great people around you, and having faith in yourself.

...and ya don't stop.

faux moss agate handwrapped into brass wire, by me.
the chain is vintage brass and hangs 24" in length.

there are also matching earrings! please check my boutique

another view of the beautiful necklace showcasing how the
pendant catches the light.

after skimming through "hip hop ya don't stop," i felt inspired
to create my version of chunky cuban link earrings.
these lightweight links are connected to sterling silver ear hooks.
3" in length and not nearly as heavy as they appear.

there are 7 links in total.

thank you.. and you can always find more of my art here.

Music Appreciation...

a throwback....

The Holidays Are In Effeck Mode...

...and I am feeling it. I sent out (well, my fiancee did. ladies, a tip.. get a good supportive man) 10 orders this morning!!

I've got some new jewelry "peaces" to post...

I was also commissioned by sister of mine to create for her an unconventional engagement ring, using certain elements she'd requested.

I hope she likes it.

The Akua'ba fertility charm ... Vintage findings to complete the look.

As always, you can order here

arm cuffs w/ chain... a beautiful, subtle way to bring attention to our feminine curves...
sterling silver chain, vintage bangles

a handwrapped, faceted candy jade ring custom made in YOUR size :)
this ring rises almost 1" off of the hand... it's made to be seen

gorgeous onyx chunks, pewter spacers and a toggle clasp. the onyx has tons of movement.
some chunks stand straight up, some lay flat, some alternate in position...

i love jewelry that appears to be alive.

a view of the gorgeous chunks of pure black onyx.

an updated photo of my "swords n' feathers" 'peace'
...each time I make them, they are different... i love art.. no piece is ever the same.
these are about 4.5" in length, asymmetrical, lightweight and funky!

an upper arm cuff w/ sterling silver chain and vintage bangle.
this can also be worn around your wrist.

a brass version of my arm cuff w/ vintage brass chain and African brass
barrel beads.

tiger/bronze feathers, brass ankh, African brass, turquoise, hand-wrapped coral
and gold ear wires. i absolutely LOVE this pair of earrings...

All Chained Up..

This is 1 of my most detailed "peaces" to date.

It can be worn over a tube top, as I have it worn here, a camisole, a tank top (wife), a sweater, or nothing at all to show your man a great time :) (giggles)

It can be ordered from my etsy site, or by contacting me personally:
