Meta' e Meta'

It started as a mono print on rice paper for my bachelor's degree show in Rome. Entitled simply "Meta' e Meta'"  (half and half) an egg shape drawn as a cage encircled at the tip by a rough hewn oval. Now, almost 10 years later my struggle between the Italian and the Polish American in me has evolved into a t-shirt collection. Available at Pipsqueak for all. T's tissue weight 100% organic cotton, hand screened no two a like, the common thread in my work, colors brown, mulberry and ocean.

Artemisia Styles For Red Carpet Event

I Really Like New Jersey's Sara O'Brien at her last fitting before Sunday's walk down the red carpet at the  New Jersey's Hall of Fame this year inducting the likes of Jack Nicholson, Danny Devito, Susan Sarandon, Michael Graves (Alessi) and more. The task at hand "Dressy business attire" as requested by the invitation. The other task use the I really like New Jersy t-shirt!

Corseted t-shirt cut into a shoulder baring tank embellished with silk charmeuse and sand washed silk flowers accented by a complementing corsage bracelet that can also be worn as a choker.
This paired with a 1940's style duchess satin high waisted cigarette pant with slit detail at ankle length finished with patent leather and snake skin t-strap black stilettos. Hair done up with black enamel chopsticks.
Styled and ready to go!!
