I am happy to announce that the little glass charms of Kuro are here and ready to order! This collaboration with local British Columbian artisan Neacol Miller has been so much fun … seeing these little guys come to life has brought me squeals of enjoyment and I know it’ll be the same for anyone who gets their own!
Kuro charms are limited edition of 250. Each Kuro comes in his own black jewelry box, 18″ silver plated chain, cell phone charm strap and a signed certificate of authenticity printed on full color, heavy gloss stock paper. Every single Kuro made is slightly unique, since they are individually hand crafted and may look different from the photos. You can order your own from my online store right now.
Kuro charms will make their official retail debut at The Ayden Gallery on Saturday February 13th, during the gallery show, 5, which I am a part of! I will also be at the show, since Ken knows how to put on a good party at The Ayden and we’re all revved up by Olympics fever.
Glass charm Kuro is possible thanks to Neacol and her husband Stanley, Miller. They own Bling Squared Wearable Glass Sculptures and work out of Salt Spring Island. This is their website and they make some of the most adorable little glass charms you’ll ever see! You can see and buy more of their creations here. They are a husband and wife team and their inspiration comes from obsessions with Japanese animation, comic books, fashion, pop culture and their daughter. Kind of like me, except without the daughter ~_n!
