Shikama_SS _14

Doser: Shikama Jewlery

Founder: Sarah Mcaughlin

Not for the masses: A strong believer in individual style, McLaughlin was interested in offering a new twist on the easily copied graphic tee.  Inspired to work with fabric and challenge her process as a painter, she took to painting organic, feminine-themed designs on shirts.

Products: One of a kind fearless jewelry, from long draping earrings to focal piece necklaces, that showcases the designer’s futuristic vision towards fashion.

Why we love her: It’s wearable art at its best–deserves a gallery showing but infinitely better displayed on the body.

Dose launches: Greeting cards featuring original artwork, August 14, 2011.
