Introducing the "Island Hoppin'" Collection:
Brooklyn, NY, July 22, 2011
Introducing the Island Hoppin’ Collection: representing the islands of Grenada, Barbados, and Trinidad to name a few (but not limited to these islands). This was inspired by the traditional jewelry of our parents who worn the maps in various metals with a sense of pride. Here’s a spin on those designs filled with an urban, funky twist! These are not your typical map jewelry created in metal but a design that’s hand crafted, cut, and painted. Also, to make it even more personal, I’ve added swarvoski crystals to a particular parish(es) you or your family is from.
I love the idea of also customizing a piece in different colors or styles, so I welcome a conversation on how to make this unique for you.
It’s available for purchase on the Mango+Paper+Scissors Shoppe on Etsy: www.mangopaperscissors.etsy.com where you can find more Aye’ Shanti designs, so take a pass by and check it out! Oh, and I'm still taking Carnival Jewelry Orders for Labor Day, so get them in!
And one other thing, please look out for a FABULOUS giveaway (including some Aye' Shanti Earcandy and other surprises) in collaboration with www.jayblessed.com next week. If you're not on it, organize yuhself, sign up with her website Jay Blessed Media for Caribbean Entertainment and News. Also, sign up with my blogs Aye' Shanti or Mango+Paper+Scissors for more information on current jewelry designs, Caribbean crafts, and more!
And to all my clients heading down to Barbados for Crop Over, Antigua, and Grenada for Carnival, HAVE A SAFE & ENJOYABLE TIME!
