Adrienne Mack-Davis "For The Love" album release 2/14/2010

*Peep the Fennimas wood chain A.M.D. is so graciously rocking in this video! Love it!
Hearing Adrienne Mack-Davis, newest album "For The Love" the first time was one of those clock stopping moments when you know things will never be the same and it will be a day to look back on fondly. Where you get an omniscient feeling that all things are connected....with love.
Attending and designing custom jewelry for Adrienne's album release performance and in collaboration with A.M.D. and feleciacruz "For the Love" necklaces by Fennimas, was a feast for the soul. An amazing experience in my career that I will always gratefully remember.
The large crowd that came to hear Adrienne sing that night was live and full of passion, creating this warm vibe, similar to what you find at a family reunion. It was awesome to be surrounded by so many humbly talented people that night. There were painters making art during the nights many musical performances from an eclectic mix of artists, poets, photographers, editors, journalists, producers and the list goes on...
Buy Adrienne's ground breaking album "For The Love" and fall in love with this superhuman sister. Portion of proceeds goes to Fighting for Futures

For The Love Necklace Check out Peppi from More To Love's post "For The Love
The team that worked on this album is an exceptionally talented group of persons, doing big things that inspires me every time I listen. Thank you for this music!
Put it on repeat.

Mason Granger, photoshoot with Fennimas!

I'm a big fan of NYC poet Mason Granger and it was a real honor to have been blessed with the great opportunity to shoot him in Fennimas Jewels! It's always a dream come true when you get to work together with such a group of talented people, bringing their "A" games and these images are proof of that!

Mason, is a skilled poet, performer, recent author and sports enthusiast....newly added to the list model; part of the award winning NYC poetry group Mayhem Poets. I met Mason, thanks to one of the three talented members of Mayhem Poets, Kyle Rapps....who I'm also a HUGE fan of (check him out modeling the jewels on Fennimas homepage)!

Peep Mason, here rocking "The One String Blues," wearing Fennimas leather wrap bracelet!

Enjoy some of Mason's recent work:

Mayhem Poets, is a must fan! If you haven't already...start following this ground, history, and border breaking group. I find them, each in their own right inspiring and as a trio an experience that could change the way you think about life... This is performance art for your eyes, ears and soul.
Will be releasing more images officially with a hopeful media publication soon. :-) Till then enjoy sneak peak of a few images from our recent shoot!
Peep the behind the scenes pics with a fun, hard working team of talented people!

Plus Model Magazine - The Pulse of The Plus Industry

Plus Model Magazine, works with renowned plus sized models, celebrities, agencies, retailers, photographers, and has helped discover many new plus models. Each month they lead the way in curvy fashion, news and media. I looked forward to the hot editorials, personal interviews and new ground breaking videos! PMM, is the only magazine of it's kind and making history as it leads the way in this current time of what some call "The Plus Size Revolution".

Every day I'm grateful for this magazine, for so many reasons, I'll list just a few: 1) Featuring curvy, confident women in beautiful, real bodies on it's cover - something that mainstream media and even other plus publications, does not do. 2) Showcase new fashion talent emerging in the plus world: models, designers, photographers, bloggers, stylists, etc... 3) Provide a great service to fresh models, getting them professional images/tears. 4) Representing and giving the plus size community a positive voice in media. 5) My personal deep gratitude, taking a chance on a new designer like myself.

PMM has been unselfishly nurturing to Fennimas, and taken my company to new heights of exposure, making it a recognizable name in the plus community. I am proud to be associated with Plus Model Magazine, as a recurring contributor and fan. The generosity and "eye for talent" of editor Madeline Figueroa Jones, is reflected in her uber talented teams. When you walk on set for a PMM shoot, read it's articles, watch their videos, and become mesmerized by their fashion editorials, one gets that warm and tingly, goosebump feeling of viewing great art or witnessing something positively profound. This magazine has changed my life and continues to do that for so many other fresh faces in fashion.

Plus Model Magazine interviews Fennimas:
Thank you to Plus Model Magazine, and all of the amazing teams and models that Fennimas, has had the great opportunity to work with! The above images are true highlights in my career and the faith and support of this magazine has changed my life in a way that will leave me forever grateful. Special thanks to Maddy, for so many reasons I won't even begin to list...most of all for leading by example how to be a curvy, confident, no game playing, business women in an industry that is happy to see you fail. You are a pilar in this community which all other foundations are being built upon. I, as a fat girl, jewelry designer and fan will continue to look to Plus Model Magazine each month (shoot, each day) for what's new and hot in the plus world.

Closing this post with a reminder to all us fat girls in fashion: It's a true testiment to yourself and your curves to uplift each other in the plus community with support and positivity. We are still the "underdogs" in fashion and if you want to see change on the size of models, actresses and other faces in the media to reflect what you see in the mirror everyday; then please stand together as soldiers in the same war. Get behind the companies like PMM who are helping lead the way, or make your own voice and start your own buzz.....don't ever slander those who are making bold strides (it makes you look bad, not the person you're talking shit on). BE PART OF THE CHANGE, don't hate on the ones who ARE doing it. Compettition is an illusion for people who are weak and don't believe enough in themselves to know there is enough success for everyone. Dreams are are in ample supply...get yourself one and go for it!

Sending you much love, respect and success!
