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 got all my 'emergency' medications contained in this little box. I suffer from migraine headaches, and instead of carrying around the prescription bottle, I can keep a few protected in this little box.

      This box is really convenient for my small purses. I wish it were deeper so it holds more pills. I love that it is lightweight and very portable.

          I got this so I wouldn't have to carry around bottles anymore. It holds more than I expected it to, and mine doesn't seem to flip open quickly like the others.

            I got tired of watching a friend laboriously peel away his vitamins from a tiny ball of tinfoil at restaurants. He's Cuban, so the tropical design is perfect.

                Comments about RETRO SMALL PILL BOXES:

                I have always hated being out running errands and getting a headache but not having anything with me. For awhile I tried carrying the smaller bottles (25 caplets) with me and they just took up too much room. Plus, I could always hear the pills rattling around in the bottle. It drove me crazy. These little pill boxes are perfect for fitting in a small pocket in your bag. You can fit 12-15 pills in it depending on the pill size. Just the right amount to last several weeks and not have a buldging bottle. I love it.

                  I use the retro cherry pill box to hold my pills. It lives in my purse and carries a slew of pills. I like that it doesn't sound like a jar of pills when it moves about. It is stylish and hip. It is a bit on the smallish side and I have to open it carefully to make sure my pills don't go spilling everywhere because the case is so small and delicate.
