"Acailawen Designs is an eco-friendly, green couture jewelry and accessories label by designer Andrea Acailawen. Styles range from elegant and classic to saucy and playful to big, bold and dramatic. Most of the inspiring pieces are original, one-of-a-kind creations, although limited edition pieces are occasionally offered. All offerings are hand-crafted by the designer with eco-friendly design practices and fair trade material sources in mind. Acailawen Designs is a green, carbon neutral label."
As a designer, I create a variety of unique, fashionable jewelry and accessories pieces for men and women, hand-crafted from a wide variety of materials with a focus on environmentally responsible design practices. My mixed media designs range in size, color and style, while encompassing a sense of drama and elegance. This portfolio currently features a sampling of my green couture jewelry and accessories designs.
IN THE WORKS: I am working on a bold collection of nature-inspired designs made of natural, found and recycled materials that is meant specifically for editorial use. I have also returned to designing custom props and accessories for avant garde and couture fashion and beauty editorials. Please inquire for more details.
DESIGN OFFERINGS: At this time my design work is focused on creating custom props and bold accessories specifically for use in artistic and editorial photography. My rates for custom design services include reasonable design and production charges, including all materials expenses. A non-refundable retainer is required to cover all materials and initial design fees for custom pieces, with the balance due on delivery. Prices vary depending upon the complexity of the design, the materials used and the turnaround time involved. Feel free to inquire for more details. Please note that designs requiring rapid turnaround are unlikely at this time due to my already hectic work schedule as a photographer and stylist (i.e., my day job).
In addition to offering my designs and/or design services to those in the industry, I am also available for on-site photography and styling work throughout the state of Florida, depending upon budget. Outside of my posted travel schedule, I am available for projects nationally if travel and Per Diem are provided. For all assignments requiring travel: all travel arrangements must be finalized within 72 hours after booking, unless other arrangements are agreed upon. The terms of each job are to be agreed upon in advance, in writing.
If you have an artistic or editorial project requiring mid to high-end one-of a kind pieces, please contact me to discuss your needs and time frame.
** PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT give away my designs in exchange for images under ANY circumstances. Please do not ask. When I am not the photographer or stylist on the shoot or working with a stylist with whom I have an established relationship, I may lease my designs to other professional stylists and/or photographers if tear sheets in a publication of interest are involved, I like the work of the team AND my designs will be prominently featured in the images. Leasing of my designs generally requires a pull sheet and a deposit, including shipping costs paid up front (if applicable), on all pieces to be leased. A lease agreement in writing is also required, which includes a timeline for return of the items and turnaround time on images / tearsheets. A deposit is not required if I am the stylist on the shoot, unless a high risk of damage to my designs is involved.
