It wasn’t until I began my natural journey in 2006 that I began crocheting accessories and jewelry. I felt like I needed to accentuate my new look and attitude with something…

    The earring guy

    I am roughly 6 months into this and it has been INCREDIBLE! I’ve been trying to establish myself as an artist, but over the past few years I had been hemmed in as more of a manufacturer…producing plaques and other bulk items for different organizations. It wasn’t until late last year when I presented a pair of earrings…

    Style Diary: Nikita

    I don’t really have a story about my style journey. I mostly put on what I see first when I open my drawer or closet, or in the midst of tumbling I go, “BINGO! Clothes sorted out”. I was born and raised in Guyana, South America and came to the U.S. when I was 11…
