Each month of the year Spikes & Sequins will feature an Artist or creative person that inspires us and leaves us wanting more…
This month we are featuring Ma Petite Plume, a jewelry company created by Karina Manukov. Read her interview below:
Who? Ma Petite Plume – Karina Manukov – jewelry designer/children’s wear designer
Where? I live in Brooklyn now. I am originally from Russia.
Why are you Artist of the month? I am the artist of the month because I feel that my work is original and creative. All of my pieces are done by hand and i put great effort and planning into my necklaces.
What inspires you? Daily things inspire me. I can get inspiration from fashion magazines, nature, and even the things I see on the streets of Manhattan.
Is there anything else that you would like to create/accomplish that you haven’t already? I love cooking. It is a great passion of mine. Whenever I stumble upon a new recipe I have to try it out. My dream is to open a bakery, where I will be the head pastry chef.
Do have any advice? Be true to yourself. Don’t be afraid to express yourself and always have a creative idea, something original that is not seen anywhere else.
Please visit her shop on Etsy to purchase a one of a kind “beautious” handmade piece here and join her fan club on Facebook here.
