About

I make handmade unique artwork for your wrist. I can re-make most of the bracelets on my page if you want them in special sizes.

I've been a textile artist for over 15 years so I have a million yards of fabric. I also have boxes and boxes of buttons, ribbons and trims that I've hoarded over the years. I have a passion for hand sewing. I love adding small interesting details to each jewelry piece. I'm interested in making unique treasures no one else will have.

I love jewelry. Big statement bracelets are my thing. My cuffs are really fun to wear. I make them so that they're lightweight and comfortable. Each one is unique. I enjoy using objects that other people might not think of using in jewelry design. I've used plastic toys, found objects and pompoms as well as more normal items such as ribbons, buttons and beads…

Color is important to my work. I need to feel that "pow" of color. I love contrasting vibrant colors. I try to express myself through color and creative decoration. My things are not for people who like grey stream-lined design. I appreciate the people who can create with simple design but I'm a "more is more" kind of person.

I'm a active player in the game Second Life. My avatar's name is Paisley Mizin. I have a jewelry business in that game and have done very well there. I have a Second Life blog that I use to express myself and share my interesting looks. You can check it out here: http://ohmystarspaisley.wordpress.com/. I also have a Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/pailseymizin/

I live in the Long Beach area of Southern California in a small beach house with my sweet husband and our three cats. Our cats are Rocket Jay Squirrel (Rocky) a Maine Coon, Pearl a Siamese Mix and Sharky a grey & white Tuxedo. We also have a turtle named FlapJack (Jack). My husband is a computer programmer for Math Type. He is very kind, generous and loving. I'm very lucky.

I love to get comments. Please tell me what you think.
Thanks, Katy
