new product @ indiegenius!

you saw them at the pin show pop-up boutique, now get yours at IndieGenius! second-hand wool and organic cotton lining make these bracers (aka gauntlets) a great sustainable accessory. (not to mention unexpected and fashion forward) these are steel boned but not rigid, so they are very comfortable to wear. they close with adjustable slide buckles, and i have them in medium (8" at widest point) and large (9.5" at widest point). these are sold as singles, but contact me for a price break on a pair, or for a custom order.

designed to be unisex, these look great on both men and women. top picture is truer to actual color.

recent happenings @ yomono

wow, what an incredible couple of weeks here at yomono! i'm just finishing up pin show prep, and i've already got some exciting new developments to announce. next month is going to be inundated with tasty yomono goodness. during march, i'm going to be the artist of the month at ARTisART Consignments! so come by for more gloves, bags, and fresh indie handmade style.

then, on march 22nd join me for Fashion CITED: A Style Event. this fashion show benefits the Legal Hospice of Texas, who do some amazing work for low-income individuals diagnosed with terminal illnesses. tickets are $50 and go to a great cause. there is a link to buy on the Fashion Cited website.

so if you thirst for more yomono, then the next 6 weeks are going to be sweet like honey. (or agave, for those of us who don't eat animal products.)

what's that? you demand a sneak peak? well, ok...but shhhhhh! it's a secret!
