Mission Accomplished...EB x LW/TW x STA

The Soul Train Awards are back!
The ceremony was held at the
Georgia World Congress Center on
November 3, 2009 in Atlanta, Georgia.
This years female tribute went to Chaka Khan,
for her life time of outstanding achievement in music.
The powerhouse vocal crew of Ledisi,
Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, and Fantasia
accompanied the legendary soul singer,
Chaka Khan on stage for a medley of her greatest hits.

I was pleased to see Erykah Badu rocking her
new Khepera Cuffs I custom designed and
shipped to her back in September 09.

A close up of the Cuffs! A Labor of Love!

Erykah Badu was inspired to wear an outfit
resembling Chaka Khan's 70's stage costumes.

Erykah and Chaka share the stage.
Brilliance personified!

Ease on down...ease on down the road...

The Wiz if definitely on my top 10 list of flicks.
I finally purchased it on i-tunes early October.
I was especially inspired to dress as Michael Jackson's
character of Scarecrow in The Wiz movie for Halloween 09.
The inspiration spread to my friends...we had the whole cast ready to
ease on down the roads of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
A blast was had by all..and yes we happened to meet the Wizard!

If you don't have this album already it is a must have
for your music collection.

the original cast of the motion picture, The Wiz.

I had so much fun crafting my ensemble
the day of Halloween.
What can I say I'm a crafty girl!

Need I say more...MJJ Rules!

A Special shout out to Rebecca Casciano for
working her magic of make up artistry on
our Wiz cast 09.

New work...designed especially for her wedding day!

Hello lovelies...
Can you believe it's the
end of the year approaching.
I've been extremely busy with
new studies for restructuring my
business, custom orders and prototyping
new designs for 2010 collections.
Don't worry I'll have a few new pieces
for Holiday 09. Below is a new piece
I'll be offering this Fall/Winter.
I had the honor of creating the
wedding cuff bracelet for the
newly wed Raquel Cepeda-Jenkins.
It was an honor to create a piece
for her special day!

Raquel looking beautiful in a custom
Ashaka Givens Dress. The dress folds
inspired the new cuff you'll see below.

Welcome the new Crinkle Cuff.
(In Silver as shown)
Inspired by folds, wavy and crinkle cuts.

Another angle to get the full effect.
