CYNTHIA LLOYD-CYZUKI INDUSTRIES – Each garment is composed of parts from old fabrics or reused garments which have been purposefully cut into geometric shapes and re-stitched with binding stitches to make a raw-edged, pieced look. Each item is one-of-a -kind.
DOMINIQUE DENAIVE (France) – Dominique Denaive has created costume jewelry of all kinds in resin since 1981 in small quantities by hand. The history and tradition of resin is a current expansion of the French tradition of the 19th century called Galalith.
MELISSA DRAUGSVOLD-DRAUGSVOLD JEWELRY(USA) – Melissa Draugsvold designs unique, one-of-a-kind jewelry combining semi-precious stones, feathers, vintage metal pieces, chains, and beads to create texture, contrast, geometry of shape, density of color, and bold combinations.

Earrings, necklaces, pins, bracelets offer extensive shapes, embellished with crystals, beads, neon colors and marbles. Chains, bangles, dangling earrings, belts, and necklaces.
MIO STUDIO – Ultra-modern and geometric, these artists from the North East create jewelry combining aluminum and ebony. Large cuff bracelets, dangling earrings, and geometric necklaces play off the juxtaposition off of the shimmery surfaces of the silver aluminum and deep black wood. Although these pieces appear heavy with shape, they remain lightweight and easy to wear.

Sterling silver and more precious metals are formed in layers and then engraved and pierced to expose a rich multi-layer of tones and shapes. The cuff bracelets, belt buckles, earrings and necklaces are refined and unique- sterling silver, precious metals, turquoise, coral and geometric and organic forms present a unique expression for a traditional sterling silver artist.

Inside or on the reverse side of each piece is a story/narrative engraved.
