Clothes and Art with Japanese themes (AdAm talking) We met in 2001 shortly after 9/11. Hiromi and some school friends were taking a tour of Boston.

Upcycled Inner Tube Bags & Accessories While medieval alchemists sought to turn lead into gold, we strive to turn useless stuff like blown-out inner tubes, old seatbelts and advertising banners into useful stuff like bags and wallets.

I don’t use anything other than genuine leather in my products, and I allow the inside surfaces and stitching on the products to be visible.

Socially responsible silver & gold jewelry Ever since I was a young girl, I have enjoyed creating three dimensional art from found objects – whatever is within reach.
