Up on deck today, my interview with the Raw San Diego 2012 Accessory Designer of the year… Ceci Punch Designs!
Please tell the people a bit about yourself! I’m Ceci, a self- taught artist with a Graphic Design background who incorporates my passion for bringing old trends to life with a twist of modernization and my own punch of style.
What types of pretties do you make? A wide assortment of mixed designs for any style needed. Specifically, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and custom designs for special occasions.
What are your favorite materials? All my pieces are 100% handcrafted by me! I use the best quality supplies, beads and findings that I can get my hands on; anything vintage, fun and eye catching.
Who and/or what inspires you to create? My inspiration to create jewelry comes from… well, a lack of finding jewelry that is affordable and of quality, and also simply interesting or eye catching. I try to design jewelry for every style and jewelry that is fun and classic. One of my fave holidays has always been Dia De Los Muertos (Day Of The Dead). I have been obsessing this style for YEARS in jewelry, home decor, accessories and art. The bright colors and flowers and of course the skulls are so beautiful. I am also a fan of anything vintage and classic. The Pin-up and Rockabilly styles are also huge inspirations for my designs.
Care to share a few of your favorite creations?
