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 bought this for myself because I thought they were neat, then my friend saw it and so I got her one too. I would recommend them except that they are a little pricey in my opinion.

              There's a little note inside telling the recipient that, while designed as a tampon box, it can be used for many other small items. It closes with a sturdy click and feels like something you could carry in your purse for a lifetime. A great gift idea for the great women who share our lives.

              Cute to keep in my purse. Before this I just put them in a pocket in my purse. Had to throw them away after the papaer got torn up.

                The case is good quality and will protect anything you choose to put in the case. It is perfectly sized for standard-size tampons. If you use otherwise, you can use the case for something else. It's a bit difficult to open, but at least the latch is secure. Recommended.

                  I found these tampon cases to be fabulously fun and functional. Why not turn something unpleasant into fun. I actually looked forward to my "time of the month" just so I could use it! I bought one for my two best friends also.

                          I love the idea of this product. The case is very cute! I personally don't need tampons anymore, but I use it for holding random other items that would normally be found at the bottom of my purse. I sent one to my girlfriend, and she loves it. It is small, so use of the mini tampons would be recommended, in order to fit more in. I don't have a problem w/ opening and closing it like some people above have mentioned.

                            They are very cute, I thought about getting them for my friends for christmas and getting their names engraved on the back of them but, I just thought 32 dollars was a bit much!
