My designs include: jewelry, dresses, tops, skirts, swimwear, leather wallets, clutch bags, handbags, ipad cases and hand knits. I have sold my designs to celebrities Jennifer Connelly, Rory Kennedy, Jo Andres (wife of Steve Buscemi), actress Katherine Borowitz (wife of John Turturro) and writer Amy Sohn, who have all shopped at Eidolon. My designs have been published in the Brooklyn Girls 2008 pin-up calender and in 'Sweet Nothings- Handmade Camis, Undies and other Unmentionables' book. Here are a few blog links featuring my swimwear.
