SariBlue...There's Nothing Evil About It, That's For Sure!

I just received my Byzantine Beauty earrings from an artist named Sari from her Etsy store, SariBlue  Now, I am an avid collector of evil eye jewelry, not because I am superstitious, but because there is something so beautiful and mystical about the eye in art. These earrings, are, by far, the most beautiful works I have ever owned!!

They are so luxurious, and old high quality, with real glass handmade in Turkey, and sumptuous silver beads in Mediterranean motifs. The artist, Christine Lorenzo, is a true gem, tucked away in her studio in Stow, Massachussetts, but she has had her jewelry featured at the Golden Globes Luxury Gift Lounge, and will also have it featured at the MTV Movie Award Luxury Gift Lounge.

                      Christine Lorenzo, the genius behind SariBlue
Don't forget the name ...I'm sure you'll be hearing alot of wonderful things from this fabulous artist!!!!

Alexis Studio Design at 2012 NYC Fashion Week! Pt 2

So, I was supposed to be exhibiting my wares on February 13 - 15th, but the events of the 13th were rescheduled, so I had an extra day...hallelujah!! The event I participated in was the Accessory Lounge at Style 360, produced by two fabulous people, Jono Waks of Product -N- Press, and Susan Sidor. It was a very exciting event, as only a handful of accessory artists were taking part. The venue was bustling with excitement when I arrived to set up my exhibit...

I met a beautiful model named Tory Williams, who was there to model the accessories...and what a wonderful job she did! She rocked my earrings!!

The designers showing that day were Malan Breton, Bebe Black and Sachika... 

Before and after each fashion show, the guests would come and visit our exhibits...guess who stopped by?

It was an exciting but exhausting day, talking to fashion writers, editors, celebrities, buyers...standing on my feet started to take it's toll...I had to run out to Duane Reed's to buy a pair of those flats you find in the foot care section. At the end of a long, but thrilling day one, I hobbled off to find a taxi to take me to my hotel to get some sleep....
