Urban Fashion Artist Randi Tannenbaum

At CosaVerde Randi Tannebaum’s work  consists of mostly License plates and leather. Cutting, folding, compressing and Welding(?) them into wearable urban art. Or  just cool accessories.

She describes her work as urban graffiti. well the actual phrase is ” The pieces are more like urban grafitti – suggesting a private meaning while radiating an unmistakable movement and energy.”

It made my smile. Simply. It’s handmade, bold and has style. Although I think her belt buckles and buttons are her most unique items, each one is different, that is not all she makes.

Over at her etsy shop. She has a selection sterling and beaded jewelry. It is an eclectic collection that seems to incorporate different styles.
