Desert Daisy Jewelry 

"Beauty to me does not lay in perfection, which means the stones I naturally end up with are selected for character and depth. I find myself inspired by the unique energy of each stone, and sometimes when inspiration lags, a good old fashioned desert hike is all I need to get back into design." - Emma Roberts

Caitlin's Crystals

"Fashion meets healing crystals with my jewelry. I mostly wire wrap my
pieces, but some of them are made with industrial strength glue to keep the
stones intact as well." - Caitlin Speer

The Odd Portrait

Ariana Deats the owner and designer of The Odd Portrait started her art and fashion designs from her very beginning from the time she could hold a crayon. Her mother was not a believer in giving a child many toys so her imagination was her greatest tool, creating doll houses from card board boxes to drawing and cutting out her own paper dolls. 

Having taken only a splattering of art classes and some fashion courses in high school and a few others she is mainly self-taught. It has and will always be design or die,

"I lose myself and find myself on daily basis.
Without inspiration without something to create only vast emptiness exists.

It's more than art it's more than designs it's a means of survival."- The Odd Portrait November 2015
