Winter is coming…well not really in Los Angeles, but in other parts of the world. However, a part of me is excited for the light and short cold months that arrive our Palm tree, filled town. It’s fun to pull out scarves, gloves, and any accessory that keeps you looking fashionable in your winter gear.

While living in Europe the last few years, I really wanted the opportunity to design some accessories. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a shoe designer, but I really wanted to experience designing other types of products. So, after some persistence, I had the opportunity to design Men’s and Women’s accessories for Modern Amusement. For some of you who don’t know Modern Amusement, it’s a Southern California contemporary lifestyle brand with a lot of whimsical and fun quirks to the collection. They also have a logo that I love, a crow…yes, the crow! You might want to check them out at www.modernamusement.com.

Here are some women’s accessories I did for them. Unfortunately, due to price and production factors, they did not make the collection. But I do love them, and wish I had the glove samples to sport them! Bummer.
