David Yurman was destined to make a career out of creating art. At age twelve he was known for selling his home-made sculptures in the cafeteria during lunch. A few years later at age sixteen, he was introduced to Cuban welder and sculptor Ernesto Gonzales while visiting his sister in Provincetown, MA. With sculpture, Yurman found an outlet and focus for his creativity, which he would develop over the next two decades as an apprentice under the instruction of celebrated sculptors Theodore Roszak and Jacques Lipchitz. In 1982, Yurman introduced what became his signature—the cable bracelet—a twisted helix adorned with gemstones on its ends.

When opposites collide, sometimes it just doesn’t makes sense. But if you are April Mun, you find a way to make it work. An alumna of the New York Fashion Institute of Technology, Mun was inspired by her two formers assistants (yes, you guessed it) Stella and Jamie. Stella, known to be the “edgy rocker chick” and Jamie, referred to as the “southern bell,” helped inspire Mun to create a fabulous yet somewhat contradictory line of fashion. Using gorgeous fabrics and lively colors, Mun’s fashion designs are a mix of sweet meets edgy. Who says who can’t be pretty and tough at the same time?
Whimsical, practical and conversation starters, Violettes are charming handmade fabric purses, fanny packs and musician's gig bags shaped like musical instruments - violins, cellos, guitars, banjos and pianos. Violettes are the inspiration of Becky Chaffee of Knoxville, Tennessee. What started out as a crazy idea of making a purse shaped like a violin has turned into a business where Chaffee has expanded her product base to include purses in the shapes of cellos, guitars, banjos and pianos made of suede, leather and a wide variety of fabrics. Local artists are commissioned to paint inspiring artwork on the leather products which include flowers, sunsets, rainbows, the American flag, and so many other interesting designs.
