Introducing Ritual Skincare Collection
This year has been so full. So full of life, love, challenges and awakening. As a designer, an artist, an entrepreneur and self-proclaimed vodou-queen-priestess who works in alchemy; I am always working to evolve. In the fullness, the rituals for self-evolution have been a big key.
One of my favorite rituals is my skincare regimen. The ritual of washing your face, moisturizing, a detoxifying charcoal mask at the end of a long day of work before bed is more than just skin deep. It’s that ritual that brings you back to yourself, an offering to your physical body and reverence for existence……
XENOPHORA Co/Lab with DeAndre Levy
Look at yourself without, while within.
Somehow your escape plans failed one after another,
your misguided guides will forget you along that path.
You cannot run for their is nowhere for you to go
and now that you're here;
I think you should stay a while.
- You Are Enough
Trust The Process
Experiences are invaluable. They are life changing, soul defining and quintessentially what makes your life what living. As the creator of XENOPHORA I am always so inspired by the experience of the process and its the greatest gift to be able to share that with other people….
Diamond In The Rough
I believe that humans, experiences and the overall journey of life is filled with lessons. Everything is a lesson to be learned from. Theres is always the opportunity to grasp the seed of knowing yourself, thus knowing the universe and absolutely nothing at all…..
The Detroit Free Press once headlined me and my story with A Diamond In The Rough printed in bold and unapologetic typography. This headline has never been truer. I am, in fact, a diamond in the rough.
A diamond cultivated from the earth which has took thousands of years to form and with immense heat and pressure, a unique gemstone has been created. Without any human intervention, I give you diamonds in the rough - in their most natural state, cast directly into a 3D printed signet ring.
The perfect marriage of ancient and innovative technology.
From Brightmoor to Paris Fashion Week - and back
Texture prints and textiles reminiscent of the jewelry making process of the Detroit Diamond Signet Ring. I mean, when are we not in the mood for texture.
