Beautifully Accentuates Love And Nurtures Creative Energy

My 'shop' started in 1994, when I created about 7 pieces of jewelry and I found that all the pieces I made were purchased by my friends and family. They loved the items I hand-crafted and I really enjoyed creating them.

This labor of love developed while I was the Director of the International African Islamic Ballet, from 1990 until 1992. We performed twice at the Brooklyn Academy of Music for the Ascension of NANA OPARE DINIZULU and DANCE AFRICA in 1991. I choreographed a few pieces, danced on stage and sold merchandise, afterwards. The colors and textures of the various African dance troupes' costumes, layered with the rich cultural history of the Motherland, were breathtaking! The shapes and poly-chromatic intensity of every piece of clothing, every statue and mask and all of the handmade jewelry I saw was inspiring and so incredible!

I used to sell jewelry, educational books and literature, incense, hair products, crowns, soaps and oils outside of Unique Boutique on Broadway in Greenwich Village for the African Islamic Mission, so my vending skills were honed by the time I created my baby, BALANCE!

Many people make jewelry but I put love and caring into each piece I craft. The body products I create are all natural using organic and wholesome herbs, spices, oils, fruits and vegetables and I love to create new combinations of flavors. My style is eccentric, deliberate, earthy, African, raw, regal, innovative, highly spirited and full of character. Each jewelry piece is named and has a story of it's own. Once purchased, it's up to YOU to continue YOUR story...

Thank you for reading a little bit about my beginnings... PEACE, PROGRESSION & POWER!!!
