F O R T U N E at Society 6
Society 6 has always been a great outlet for producing prints for many different types of canvases: pillows, totes, shower curtains, clocks, iphone cases, rugs, and art prints. I recommend trying it out. I just started and so far the site has inspired me to make textile prints and it's awesome to visualize art on different surfaces and textures.

F O R T U N E jewelry
Every piece of jewelry is hand made in Brooklyn, New York by me! I founded Fortune in 2010 after being inspired by miniature sculptures at the MAD museum. Most supplies used are either hard to find or vintage, so most pieces are rare. Some of my favorite materials include colorful sequins imported from France, spotted jasper stones, 14k gold filled chains and african ancient brass beads. You can find past pieces here and recent pieces here.
