Last Wednesday we were invited to provide jewelry for a photo shoot for a new pop artist Flo Keyanna. Flo wanted to do some promotional work for her single “No Holding Back,” which will be released June 3rd so stay tuned. My friend and professional Make-Up Artisit (MUA) Lakisha Evans of Glorified Faces put together a team for the project. The shoot was done at Pixtions Photography studio with photographer Tyrone Love. Juan Ortiz, of Redd Pen Media, was the videographer catching all the behind the scenes filming of the shoot. Hair was hooked up by Alexis; also a member of Glorified Faces. Clothing, and feathered glove in the last look, provided by stylist Lael, who also has her own clothing line called Lael By Lael Marshall, whose collection was featured on the Lisa Raye Show last week.
Everyone I worked with was so cool. It’s amazing how people from different creative fields can come together and work to provide one vision. We’ve been lucky to have worked with various fashion designers/stylist/photographers/whatever in the past and never had drama on the set. It makes it easier to flow when everyone is about the finished product and not on their own agenda…
WHAT I WORE
In the first picture I wore a Fish Ear Cuff I made and thrifted disc earrings (one of my favorite). Then I layered a chunky thrifted bracelet and bangle with a gold nugget ring (one of Vanessa’s favorite).

We had the honor of providing jewelry for BeeraBeero’s photoshoot, an up and coming magazine in the D.C. area. The shoot took place at Pure night club on U street, providing a modern backdrop to model’s dressed up in traditional Ethiopian wear and adorned with jewelry from our inventory. It was so much fun! Can’t wait for it to come out!

Stephanie Owen, of Elizabeth Cole jewelry, is one of my favorite designers. She has the ability to use jewelry materials and transform them into things from nature such as fish, ram heads, leaves and flowers, while still making them look edgy. We, Bisoux, currently have the Crystal Fish earrings in the last picture in our inventory which we use for styling purposes. I look forward to adding more of her pieces to the stock!

Preview of a photo shoot we did with our jewels for BeeraBeero Magazine coming out soon! Can’t wait to see how this picture turns out…
I found these colorful triangular studs at a thrift store in Baltimore, MD, for only $1.99! I wear them all the time to add a touch of color and style to an everyday outfit. Sorry for the picture quality. My camera broke so I’m working with my Black Berry.
I was having a little fun with Picnik.com photo shop 🙂
