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.

      I've had my eye on this mirror for some time now, but thought the price was too high for a pocket mirror. I decided to buy it for myself for Mother's Day. Beautiful mirror. I love it.

            Comments about RED HOT MAMA MIRROR & PILL CASE:

            This case is useful if you have a need to carry several doses of pills but don't want an ugly, bulky plastic case. It comes with a plastic pill organizer tray, which I removed to make a single roomy compartment. I can carry all the vitamins and supplements I need to take per day (~20 pills) and still have room for more once the tray is removed. This case is more attractive than typical pill organizers, more durable than plastic, and practical too!

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt and packaging protected the item in transit. Came with a small cloth bag which I repurposed to carry my iPod!

                    As a diabetic, I always need to have certain pills along with me when I go out to eat at restaurants. I used to carry them in little baggies; this is a much more stylish way to keep pills handy in my purse.

                    I loved the idea of this for my mom, but her thumbs are arthritic, and the case would have been too hard for her to open. If they fixed the button to open it (currently it is just a piece of flat metal that sticks out that you have to push in on its edge), it would be gold.
