Karyn Cantor

A love of fashion and art from the 1920s through the 1950s, mixed with a strong post-industrial aesthetic, is the impetus for Karyn Cantor's accessories that reflects today's sense of individuality. Fun, forward and functional, her cutting edge products balance clean lines and sturdy construction to create a refined, sophisticated, romantic style. Every handcrafted piece is designed with exuberance and often reflects her wry sense of humor.

Making and selling jewelry as a teenager was the precursor to Karyn's passion. She further impelled her artistic/creative side by studying photography and sculpture both at Rutgers University and San Francisco University, graduating in 1992 with a degree in photography.

Shortly after, she started working for a photographer and then worked as an art teacher with middle school children in the Bay Area, inspiring creative and individual thinking. Comfortable in the teaching role, Karyn also taught photography, jewelry and metal art, video production and history of rock 'n' roll.

Karyn's own sculpture and photography work have appeared in over a dozen gallery shows, and she has had her photography published in several music magazines. Her display of talent can currently be viewed at various boutiques and stores worldwide.

When she is not working on her newest accessory piece, Karyn enjoys live music shows, swing dancing, perusing flea markets and discovering vintage finds.

Comments about OO LA LA PILL BOX & OUI OUI TAMPON CASE:

I bought this for a friend. It is cute and I will still be giving it to her but the silver case is scratched and dinged EVERYWHERE. It kind of looks like someone used it and now I'm regifting it. It came in a little plastic wrap so I'm assuming it's new but it sure doesn't look it. AND IT WASN'T cheap at all at [$]. The picture on the front looks new at least. I'd be curious to know why it looks this way.

was a really lovely piece. the only problem i had was it definitely much smaller than i anticipated. it is hard to tell online and in catalogs though. i guess i should have paid closer attention to the dimensions given. oops!

    Comments about OO LA LA PILL BOX & OUI OUI TAMPON CASE:

    I bought one as a gift for my sister and one for myself. If you want this, this is actually a great deal here. I looked around, and the ones that were cheaper in price kind of screamed, "I need to use tampons now!" which kind of defeats the purpose, I thought. It fits nicely in a purse, and I think my sister will like hers. I like mine...for what it is.

    the item looks cool in the picture, however it is not of the quality that you'd pay [$] for. should consider putting soft linen on the inside.

      Very cute and practical cases. Was surprised with how much can fit in the small pill case. Only dissapointment is the tampon case is a little small. I can fit them in, but barely. Over all very happy with my purchases and would recommend them.

        great for hiding "personal feminine products". Really like how it holds up. I had my purse spill one time and it held together and it hid "those particular items" so it wasn't embarassing.

              Who the hell designs a tampon case that is too small to hold a tampon?? Isn't that the primary goal of an item?? To be able to do what it's been specifically created to do?? Duh. Great job, uncommon goods...I'm thoroughly impressed with your product selection. I had to go out on Christmas Eve to replace this gift since it was completely useless. So stupid
