This is the story of a career that spans more than 40 years, takes twists and turns, is marked by persistence and flexibility, and now is providing a product that meets a specific need. Mark Jenkins is down-to-earth and honest when he tells the story of his journey from shoe salesman to owner of Mark Jenkins Footwear, a brand available at boutiques in 12 states and online that combines style and comfort in women\u2019s shoes.

Jenkins\u2019 shoes include a variety of popular and fashion-forward styles. For fall and winter, boots were the headliners. The Flyer is a genuine suede, over-the-knee style with a flat heel in black, beige and gray \u2013 standards in Jenkins\u2019 neutral color palette. Suede appears in a different style altogether in the Barcelona, an ankle boot with a 1-inch block heel, featuring a patchwork motif of color combinations, including navy/gray/beige and black/brown/olive.

From Jenkins\u2019 sandal line, the popular Calista style features a 3-inch wedge and is available in leather or suede shades ranging from deep wine to the most neutral cream \u2013 and even a fun leopard print. Despite the taller heel, the design ensures the foot is positioned for maximum support and stability and, like Jenkins\u2019 other shoes, features a molded cork footbed with thick memory foam padding that molds to the wearer\u2019s foot for superior comfort.

Today\u2019s footwear line is a product of Jenkins\u2019 long career in the footwear industry, which began in 1978 at the fitting stool \u2013 helping people try on shoes of various sizes and styles, advising them on fit and appearance. \u201cIt was fairly lucrative if you had some drive,\u201d he remembers of that first commission-paid job.

The 1970s, \u201980s and \u201990s were generally good years to be in the shoe business. Jenkins worked his way up the ladder at Edison Brothers Stores, a St. Louis company that owned numerous shoe and clothing retail chains including Bakers, Chandlers, Burts and Wild Pair. \u201cThey were a very big retailer back in the day,\u201d Jenkins says. \u201cThey tended to promote from within the company, so the management team largely came up through working in the stores, and it was a great place to be a student of the retail footwear business.\u201d

Jenkins took his real-world studies seriously. Fascinated by the workings of the retail world, he set his sights on product development and purchasing for Edison Brothers\u2019 various retail lines. In 1983, he was promoted to the company\u2019s corporate office in St. Louis as a merchandiser, where he procured products for specific regions across the nation based on the need and demand for various sizes, styles and colors. Proving himself in that position, Jenkins continued his management ascent as a buyer and merchandise manager for several of Edison Brothers\u2019 shoe chains, fulfilling his early goal.

Things were going well. But in 1995, Edison Brothers filed for bankruptcy, citing a poor specialty-retail environment, and began closing stores. Although the company\u2019s dissolution shocked many, Jenkins felt it was an opportunity to spread his wings to other companies and learn about the footwear industry from other perspectives. \u201cThe bankruptcy taught me to look at business differently and see how other retailers were doing things,\u201d he says. \u201cIt was very eye-opening and a tremendous learning experience, although the bankruptcy was a difficult time.\u201d

Jenkins and two partners invested in the Bakers shoe chain, buying it out of bankruptcy. \u201cWe had a really good time with repositioning it,\u201d he says, but disagreements about the future direction of the stores led to Jenkins\u2019 decision to move on. He took a job at Brown Shoe Co., now Caleres, running the Naturalizer retail division. After a year in that position, Jenkins decided to broaden his horizons to the wholesale side of the footwear industry.

Retail was quickly changing from a merchant-driven business to a numbers-driven business, which Jenkins says led him into wholesale. \u201cThere, [I] could stay focused on product and still work with some of the biggest retailers and brands in the industry,\u201d he says. He worked at Elan Polo International, a St. Louis-based company that produces several shoe brands for retailers, and then moved on to Bronx Diba Imports in 2010, overseeing the development of the Luichiny brand.

That job ended last year when Jenkins was downsized. \u201cIt wasn\u2019t the perfect time for me, but it was the right decision for the company to make,\u201d he says. Jenkins faced a crossroads. He could seek employment elsewhere, uprooting his family and relocating, or he could take an entrepreneurial route. He chose the latter, and Mark Jenkins Footwear was conceived.

Using his extensive knowledge and industry contacts, Jenkins determined that there was a niche in the shoe business that targeted women who wanted style and comfort. \u201cI wanted to carve that niche and do it right,\u201d he says. \u201cAfter talking to a lot of my contacts in industry, finance and technology, I thought, \u2018I can make a go of this.\u2019\u201d

Jenkins introduced his brand in spring 2017, marketing his shoes online and through carefully selected retail outlets. He intentionally keeps his production small-scale so he can agilely adjust based on customer demand.

Mark Jenkins Footwear is now heading into its third season, spring 2018, and will feature sandals and other popular styles manufactured on a comfortable footbed with memory foam insoles. Spring styles will include metallics and neutrals, as well as some bright colors, such as ruby and slate.

About 75 percent of his business is in providing his shoes to boutiques, many of which carry his brand exclusively. In the greater St. Louis area, Jenkins\u2019 shoes are available at Heels Boutique, Klutch, Leopard Boutique, The Designing Block, Aly\u2019s Boutique and Jeans, Jackets & Jewels.

Face it, ladies: Old Man Winter\u2019s a fink! At this time of year, Missouri\u2019s typical frigidity causes facial skin to dry, flake and die, which can really complicate cosmetic regimens. If you\u2019re facing this seasonal woe, though, don\u2019t fret \u2013 a few simple procedures can alleviate or altogether eighty-six it:

Step 1:\u2002Exfoliate your face weekly. To fight \u201cwinter skin,\u201d exfoliate your face each week as many times as you deem necessary. Doing so removes dead skin, which causes dry patches and flakiness. Also exfoliate your lips; if your face has dried, so, too, have they in all likelihood, so exfoliate dead skin from them and moisturize them with lip balm.

Step 2:\u2002Rely on a suitable moisturizer. Find a moisturizer that works best on your skin, and for pity\u2019s sake, stick with it \u2013 don\u2019t try to economize (read: \u201cgo cheap\u201d) with samples exhumed from your vanity. In part or in whole, using such samples could cause dermal dryness in the first place. Accustoming your skin to the same moisturizer for a while should yield great results, with makeup practically gliding onto exfoliated and moisturized skin \u2013 without clinging to dry, flaky patches.

Step 3:\u2002Take care with matte foundations. If you normally wear matte foundations but suffer from \u201cwinter skin,\u201d try a dewy substitute. Matte foundations supposedly boost drying to absorb excess oil, but in winter, they also cling to dry patches and make skin look uneven and \u2013 you guessed it \u2013dry. A dewy foundation hydrates your face more and makes it look radiant and beautiful rather than dull and desiccated.

Step 4:\u2002Use a hydrating mist. To prep your skin and set your makeup, always use a hydrating mist. The more hydration on your face, frankly, the better! A hydrating mist makes \u201cwinter skin\u201d glow gloriously in no time. Also, for extra-dry skin, spritz hydrating mist on your face throughout the day as needed.

In sum, ladies, don\u2019t wait for your skin to dry uncomfortably and unattractively this season before considering the preceding steps; as soon as your skin starts flaking and drying, add some or all of them to your beauty routine. Although important year-round, they become even more so during winter\u2019s cold!

YLANG YLANG, located in the heart of Ladue, brings fresh, innovative and often exclusive jewelry lines to St. Louis. This family-owned boutique has brought immense value to the community since its inception in 1985. Much like a prized heirloom, the popular shop was passed down to the next generation, daughter Julie Ettinger.

At YLANG YLANG, spotlighting incredible designers is a tradition that Ettinger fortifies with Single Stone, made all the more fitting by the artisan\u2019s focus on heirlooms. \u201cIn a time when possessions have become disposable, we believe having something that is sentimental and well-made is so important,\u201d Ari Madilian, co-owner of Single Stone, says. \u201cThese items, passed down for generations, can connect people to their past.\u201d

Ari and his wife, Corina, built the Single Stone brand on this concept. \u201cI grew up in the L.A. jewelry district,\u201d Ari shares. \u201cI was 23 years old when I fell in love with the hunt and discovered my passion for great jewelry and diamonds. The idea of finding the perfect piece for a client became my obsession.\u201d

Corina always admired adornments, but came into the jewelry business through marriage. \u201cIn the beginning, our business was directed at creating jewelry for other brands and designers,\u201d she says. \u201cI missed the connection of telling our own story and decided to work towards that.\u201d

The tale behind the designers\u2019 name came from Ari\u2019s heritage. \u201cSingle Stone is the direct translation of the name of my father\u2019s company in Turkey. Tek, meaning \u2018single,\u2019 and tas, pronounced \u2018tash,\u2019 meaning \u2018rock\u2019 or \u2018stone,\u2019\u201d he explains.

In 2014, a traveling buyer brought a ring with a story ready to be shared. Once purchased, the team at Single Stone discovered a hidden note inside its original box. \u201cThe paper was almost impossible to notice, as it perfectly fit the box,\u201d Ari remembers. \u201cThese words were written on it: \u2018To our beautiful Cora, from Mama and Papa, 1883.\u2019 Needless to say, everyone in the office burst into tears.\u201d

The true value found at YLANG YLANG extends to the story inspired by this wearable art. \u201cWe are romantics at heart,\u201d Ari says. \u201cThis is one of the reasons we prefer to use vintage diamonds in all our designs. It gives our pieces personality and soul.\u201d

You don\u2019t have to look very far to take note that eyebrows are having a strong moment these days. The trend is unmistakable, much like the rounded, puckered-red lip of the 1920s or full and feathered eyelashes \u00e0 la London\u2019s swinging \u201960s style scene and cultural icon Twiggy.

The look, a departure from the wafer-thin brows of the not-so-distant past, involves a fuller, more natural clean brow with a subtle arch. For many, though, this \u201cnatural\u201d look still requires help, aided by fill-in materials like brow powders, gels and pencils, which can make a low-maintenance look still feel very demanding. For these individuals, Clayton\u2019s Boss Brows LA, one of the St. Louis area\u2019s first studios to offer microblading, gives clients an opportunity to follow today\u2019s eyebrow trend in the form of a semipermanent tattoo.

Boss Brows LA\u2019s owner, Kristi Bates, is a Southern California native whose relationship brought her to the St. Louis area \u2013 and with her, the eyebrow trend that\u2019s been sweeping the coasts the past few years. \u201cIn Los Angeles, microblading has become really big and well-known, as eyebrow trends have grown in popularity and people have learned how important it is to frame their faces properly in order to create a balance and enhance natural beauty,\u201d Bates says. She started her aesthetics career as a wax specialist at a high-end Beverly Hills boutique, and after taking master classes in microblading, Bates started Boss Brows LA a little over a year ago, running her Clayton studio as her home base while maintaining her LA clientele by renting space in the area during her visits back to see family.

If the thought of a tattoo on the face conjures up images of Mike Tyson or the often harsh, artificial aesthetic of micro pigmentation, rest assured that microblading is quite unlike the brow trends of the past. \u201cIt\u2019s different from the traditional tattoo,\u201d Bates states, \u201cmuch more natural and realistic looking \u2013 my whole thing is low-maintenance cosmetic solutions.\u201d

This look is achieved by employing fine cosmetic pigments to deposit a series of hairlike strokes to fill in sparse or thinning brows. This results in a much more natural-looking, semipermanent brow that fits and complements your specific features.

For Boss Brows LA clients, Bates offers a free consultation to begin, to introduce clients to how the process works. \u201cI clean their brows and do something called brow mapping \u2013 I draw with pencil and use various rulers to measure the distance of their eyebrows and how they should frame the face using their bone structure,\u201d Bates says. \u201cI create a template so they can see what their eyebrow is going to look like, and approve it, before I actually start to work. I\u2019m really precise with brow mapping; I want to make sure it\u2019s even and exactly what the client wants. The bone structure navigates where the brow goes, whether it\u2019s a high arch or low arch \u2013 I give them what their bones tell me to give them because then it looks natural.

\u201cI apply a topical numbing cream to minimize irritation, and from there, I use a hand-held tool \u2013 with no electricity or vibration \u2013 that looks like an X-ACTO knife. But instead of a blade, there are several tiny needles in many different shapes and sizes, depending on what you want to create \u2013 whether slant, rounded or shading \u2013 all bunched together so I can implant the pigment in the top layers of the skin.\u201d

Bates\u2019 needles, three times smaller than traditional tattoo needles, inject a medical-grade, organic pigment that sits on the top layer of the skin, with her choosing the shade based on the client\u2019s skin tone and natural eyebrow color. \u201cMost people think you have to base it on the hair color, but you want your brows to match what you already have,\u201d Bates says, comparing the discomfort of the process to the sensation of tweezing or waxing or to a sunburn. She uses a topical numbing cream before the treatment, as noted, and a secondary topical numbing liquid during the treatment to continue the client\u2019s comfort. The entire process takes anywhere from two to three hours, resulting in two or more years of day-to-day, low-maintenance glam eyebrows that won\u2019t wash off with the rest of your makeup at the end of the day.

Microblading services begin at $499, reconstructing the eyebrow using strokes that mimic real hair strokes. \u201cIt looks extremely natural,\u201d Bates says. Additionally, Bates\u2019 specialized techniques set her apart in the industry \u2013 Ombre Boss Brows, which also begins at $499, is Bates\u2019 shading service \u201cfor someone who has brows but [who] really wants to define them because they\u2019re sparse, they fill them in with powder or pencil or brow gel.\u201d Ombre Boss Brows service creates the shape by filling brows in with pigmentation shading directly onto the client\u2019s skin. \u201cIt\u2019s buildable; it can be dramatic or natural, depending on what the client\u2019s needs are,\u201d Bates says.

Blade + Shade Boss Brows is Bates\u2019 most popular service, at $550, providing a combination of microblading and ombre to achieve a true 3-D effect. \u201cIt\u2019s my technique I use to create the most natural-looking eyebrow that is defined, gives you the reconstruction with the strokes and adds the shading to create a 3-D effect to really make it look realistic and natural,\u201d she says.

\u201cAbout 90 percent of people do the Blade + Shade combo brow, but there are people who just want strokes to fill in some sparse areas or just want the shading or ombre so they don\u2019t have to wear makeup,\u201d Bates continues. All brow services include a touch-up appointment at the eight-week post-application mark, to ensure both Bates and her client remain happy with the result, and $275 color-boost appointments, what Bates calls a \u201crevamp\u201d to make the pigment more vibrant a year or two down the road \u2013 as the result does fade like normal tattoos, and oily skin won\u2019t keep the pigment as long.

Boss Brows LA offers additional services, such as beauty mark enhancements and waxing. Bates also provides training services for local existing beauty professionals who would like to expand their repertoire by offering microblading at their own studios and salons. \u201cIt\u2019s a specialized craft \u2013 I really wanted to open a studio that focused on doing the actual art,\u201d Bates says. \u201cI do training in the art of microblading every other month; I think that has really helped expand the knowledge of the art.\u201d

The most rewarding part of her work, according to Bates, involves clients\u2019 reactions. \u201cI get text messages from men and women saying, \u2018Wow, I can\u2019t believe how different I look; I feel so good and don\u2019t have to do my makeup,\u2019\u201d Bates says. \u201cI\u2019ve teared up at some of the reviews and text messages of gratitude from my clients \u2013 it\u2019s something I\u2019m really grateful for.\u201d

With the start of each new year come new goals (sometimes d.b.a. aspirations or the dread resolutions). Although you may have set annual goals about health, fitness, family and hobbies, ladies, you may not have included a goal involving your beauty routine \u2013 so consider tackling one or all of these four beauty-related goals for 2018:

Go makeup-free at least once weekly. Many women fall prey to thinking they need to wear makeup daily. Although some may prefer that, try to let your own skin go without cosmetics at least one day a week. Learn to feel comfortable in your own skin, which will look so much more vibrant when it can \u201cbreathe.\u201d The dermal benefits you\u2019ll reap from this goal should delight you \u2013 and all your admirers.

Create a skin care routine that works for you. If you already have a skin care routine that works, don\u2019t mess with success. If you lack such a routine or if your daytime and nighttime routines need help, though, make 2018 the year to improve that, ladies! Start by finding a face wash, serum, moisturizer and sunscreen you like, and incorporate them into your daily dermal doings.

Get more sleep. Although a challenge, especially for extremely busy women, log more quality time with your pillow! Achieve this by trying to go to bed a bit earlier than usual till your body clock has reset itself. So-called beauty sleep is real \u2013 and really necessary!

Treat yourself to a facial. Every woman gets busy and sometimes forgets to take care of herself, but this year, strive amid the hourly, daily and weekly hurly-burly to make a little more \u201cyou\u201d time! Do so by booking a facial \u2013 just because.

With luck, ladies, you can add these goals (in part or in whole) to your list this year and achieve them with ease. In 2018, resolve to better take care of yourself, your skin and the rest of your body!

Jennifer Owens is answering her calling.

The local mother realized her life\u2019s purpose after her church, New City Fellowship in South City, called on its members to host refugee families for a holiday meal in 2008. \u201cOne family we hosted was a single mother who had two kids, couldn\u2019t speak English, had a second-grade education and had been living in a refugee camp for 17 years,\u201d Owens says. \u201cI couldn\u2019t stop thinking about if I were in her place, what job could I get to support my family.\u201d

Through this one family in need, Owens says she felt called to help all newly arrived refugee women. \u201cWhat came in my mind was to work with our hands because it overcomes language barriers, and a lot of these women know how to sew and do other crafts,\u201d she says.

By October 2009, Owens launched Forai (Friends of Refugees and Immigrants), a Christ-centered microbusiness to enable refugee and immigrant women to supplement their incomes through the production of quality, marketable handicrafts, in a small space at her church. \u201cOur focus has always been on creating marketable items with a goal of generating income for these women,\u201d says Owens, who serves as the executive director.

Today, the organization has grown to 12 refugees and immigrants, many of whom have resettled in St. Louis from refugee camps in Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Afghanistan. The group gathers monthly at the organization\u2019s new workshop space at 4200 Delor St. in St. Louis to learn a new sewing project or jewelry-making project. Forai provides the materials, which it buys wholesale, while Owens designs and leads training for the sewing projects and Jocelyn Meyer designs and leads training for the jewelry projects as jewelry coordinator. The organization\u2019s leaders, including Owens, Meyer and Colombian immigrant Luzmila Buechler, also visit the artisans in their homes, to help them create their handicrafts while also giving them life-skills tips and forming friendships. \u201cWe provide the supplies, train them and pay them for each piece about every two weeks,\u201d Owens says. \u201cThe artisans complete their pieces at home so they can still generate income while taking care of their family.\u201d

Forai artisans\u2019 clothing and accessories include headbands, gift-card holders, baby bibs, onesies, girls\u2019 dresses and women\u2019s skirts, while their jewelry line includes 14-karat gold and sterling-silver necklaces and hammered-brass bracelets and earrings. The handmade pieces are sold on Forai\u2019s website, at St. Louis-area craft fairs and at local stores including Zee Bee Market, Plowsharing Crafts, Ivy Hill Boutique, Urban Matter and Wildflowers. Best-selling items include a baby onesie with a fox\u2019s face on the front and its tail on the back, and the Circle & Line necklace. \u201cWe take the risk on selling the items, so the artisans are paid whether or not their items sell,\u201d Owens says. \u201cPeople really love our products, they love the story and they are much more aware and sensitive to the refugee crisis and want to do something to help \u2013 and shopping with us really does help because every time someone buys something, we can ask our artisans to make more pieces.\u201d

Although the organization\u2019s new workshop space, recently leased thanks to a grant from the Lutheran Foundation of St. Louis, is not a retail shop, Owens says the 2,100-square-foot space will allow the organization to host more classes for the artisans and provide more volunteer opportunities for those interested in contributing to the cause.

Owens hopes the skills Forai is teaching will help the artisans start their own microbusinesses, as well as facilitate friendships and integrate them into American life. \u201cSome of these women lived in refugee camps for 17 or 18 years, while some of the younger women were born in a refugee camp,\u201d Owens says, adding that they endured harsh living conditions, including demanding physical labor, little shelter and minimal education. \u201cThrough Forai, it\u2019s not just a job \u2013 it\u2019s a relationship. There\u2019s just a real sense of value these women feel when they are able to contribute to their family by making something with their name on it, having someone buy it and having someone hear their story.\u201d

Owens says the best part of Forai is visiting the artisans in their homes, where she has not only taught the women sewing skills but also helped them with everyday tasks, like filling out insurance forms or school applications. It\u2019s rewarding to form friendships while creating handicrafts to support their families, she notes: \u201cWe have the opportunity to give and receive from one another. We\u2019ve enjoyed incredible hospitality, treated like a member of the family, and learned so much about other cultures. When you move to a new place, sometimes you just need a friend. Just to see the smiles on their faces, so thankful that someone came to their door, is priceless.\u201d

Kate Duryea

When Kate Duryea \u2013 the owner of Dimvaloo, a premium women\u2019s active living boutique in Ladue \u2013 announced the sale of her store this fall, she quickly followed the revelation with the public introduction of her next endeavor, the Dimvaloo Activewear line. Duryea has already started the soft launch of Dimvaloo Activewear\u2019s quality sportswear and athleisure clothing, with a full brand launch expected this coming summer.

How did you segue from the store into developing your own brand?

[Starting our own line] is a way to really better address our customers\u2019 needs. We constantly bring in these brands that we\u2019re always getting feedback on, and we do give the brands feedback, but they\u2019re not as nimble, they\u2019re not as agile, they\u2019re not direct with the customer. We started researching what we could do \u2013 designing and making our own activewear is where we went with it. First, we went to Vietnam, and that was amazing. It was so cool to see just anything ever rumored: any factory floor, factory owner, the population in general, feeling that entrepreneurial spirit, the excitement to do business and willingness to work hard. We then looked for [the same] opportunity in the United States.

Are you doing the designing?

We have two in-house designers. We felt like we could really provide the market with what it was missing, learning from being a retailer for as long as we have, listening to our customers and what they\u2019ve asked for.

What will set Dimvaloo clothing apart?

The quality of fabric is huge \u2013 you don\u2019t want it to be sheer, you can\u2019t have it pill, you need it to be soft. The fit is what\u2019s taken the longest. We ended up developing our tights in the United States because we just needed more of that touch and feel than you can get from trying to develop something overseas. It really is an art, finding someone who can design in that manner. It\u2019s a real talent. When you\u2019re wearing something, people aren\u2019t asking, \u201cWhere did you get that?\u201d They\u2019re asking \u201cWhat brand is that?\u201d We want to be that brand.

What products are currently in the works for the line?

We have a themed collection of holiday designs, a city pride collection and a basic collection, and then we\u2019ll go from there. [For example], we have a spooky web print design for Halloween, a breast cancer ribbon design and a bohemian turkey feather for Thanksgiving (my most favorite design ever). The holiday designs are designed, developed and made right here in the Midwest. It\u2019s cool to be able to see the process from start to finish, knowing the people who make your clothes in the factory in Vietnam, working with the people daily who design the fit for the pant in the States and having anyone who comes in the store interested, try on a pair, figuring out what works for them and what doesn\u2019t.\u00a0

As a little girl growing up in Webster Groves in the 1970s, Theresa Wangia was captivated by her mother\u2019s collection of Native American jewelry. \u201cI just loved it, the colors, the shapes, the etchings,\u201d Wangia says. \u201cI remember saying, \u2018When I grow up, I\u2019m going to make jewelry like this.\u2019\u201d

She went on to pursue a career in fashion, working as a model while living abroad in Europe. \u201cI\u2019ve always loved fashion, and really, the creative side of it, I had grown to love more throughout the years,\u201d Wangia says. \u201cI worked as a stylist on shoots, made jewelry for shoots and had been leaning toward the accessory side, the details of the shot.\u201d She did an apprenticeship with a London-based jewelry designer who showed her how to work with stones from all over the world and taught her metalsmithing and basic jewelry-making techniques.

\"beltshazzar02.JPG\"

Her creative pursuits would eventually become Beltshazzar Jewels, a nod to the Biblical name that was given to Daniel during his prophesy. \u201cDaniel is my [maiden] name,\u201d Wangia says.

\u201cI\u2019ve always loved art, and I\u2019ve always been creative,\u201d she adds. \u201cI love to express myself, I love to dance \u2013 anything that has freestyle to it. You see in my work, I take very different textures and marry them together to create organic, one-of-a-kind pieces.\u201d

This marriage of textures and materials includes weaving leather with brass to create a bold chain for a statement pendant, such as a large circular green agate gemstone or tusk-shaped Moroccan lapis lazuli, or a section of antler wrapped in brass wire. Beltshazzar Jewels bracelets and cuffs are similarly bold, mixing hand-forged metals, leathers, horn, precious stones and bone. Handcrafted earrings are uniquely presented, with several sets sold in mismatched pairs, one perhaps in leather tassels and the other with a druzy stone. \u201cI know it\u2019s a little more popular now,\u201d Wangia says of the mismatched earrings, \u201cbut I\u2019ve been doing that for years. Even when I was 14, I\u2019d have one piercing in one ear and two in the other \u2013 asymmetrical always adds a little bit of edge.\u201d

Wangia\u2019s creative process follows a path that\u2019s structured yet undefined. \u201cI like to start off with a mood board; I\u2019ll put together different color palettes and different textures, tear sheets from magazines, whatever moves me, the colors, the textures,\u201d she says. \u201cI\u2019ll start there. I\u2019ll make little vignettes of materials, and along the way, during that process, I\u2019ll have breakthroughs while I\u2019m doing it. That\u2019s why I love the creative process so much, those breakthroughs really take my creativity to places I really couldn\u2019t sketch or lay out. But having all that there, and doing it hands-on, something really beautiful comes out of it every time.

\"beltshazzar03.JPG\"

\u201cI source materials from Kenya, because my husband is Kenyan, so we get a lot of the bone, the horn and various other minerals and stones \u2013 the more earthy items \u2013 we get produced in Kenya. Eventually, it would be nice to have some things made there.\u201d

Wangia credits the unique, blended-materials aesthetic of her line both to her varied cultural experiences living and traveling abroad and to her own family background. Wangia\u2019s Caucasian mother and African-American father met at their graduation from Webster Groves High School. Wangia was born a month before the 1967 Supreme Court ruling (Loving v. Virginia) that legalized interracial marriage and, in consequence, was given her mother\u2019s surname \u2013 Daniel.

\u201cI come from a mixed-race family, so I was drawn to a lot of different cultures \u2013 everything: the way they live, the food they eat, the way they dress, the music they make,\u201d she says. \u201cI love folk music and world music. I took that all in. Growing up in the \u201970s also shaped me; my parents were music lovers, and I have their entire vinyl collection \u2013 folk, funk, soul, classic rock. All of that shaped me as a person.\u201d

By happenstance, Wangia also later discovered that leatherwork was historically a family trade. \u201cI started doing ancestry research and found my family tree online on my German side, met my cousin who put it together and found out that my great-great-grandfather on my mom\u2019s side did indeed make several pairs of Buffalo Bill\u2019s boots,\u201d she says, referring to William Frederick Cody, an American scout, bison hunter and showman renowned as one of the most colorful figures of the Old West. \u201cI visited the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Wyoming, [and] met with the archive department, and they took me to the vault and showed me several personal belongings of William \u2018Buffalo Bill\u2019 Cody, as well as his infamous tall riding boots \u2026 I was holding a pair my great-great-grandfather, who emigrated from Germany, made. Buffalo Bill had my family under contract, making boots for him for many, many years. I was already working with leather when I found that out.\u201d

But her discoveries of the similarities between Wangia and her great-great-grandfather didn\u2019t stop there, she continues, citing her deeply rooted love for the arts. \u201cMy great-great-grandfather had a cobbler shop,\u201d Wangia says. \u201cHe also made boots for Jesse James, played the fiddle and wrote a book of poems. There are three historical books written about my family from this little town on the border, Seneca, Missouri \u2013 there is art all over that side of the family from Germany.\u201d

The Beltshazzar Jewels collection is available for purchase online and at local boutiques The Heirloom Room, Byrd Designer Consignment Boutique, The Vault, Urban Matter, The Spotted Pig and The Designing Block. Beltshazzar Jewels also has a presence in specialty shops in Chicago, Los Angeles and London. Prices range from $40 to $450, and all pieces are handmade by Wangia.

Through her company, Wangia hopes to encourage others to notice the beauty around them. \u201cBecause I traveled so much in my life and I\u2019ve seen so many different beautiful places, people and things, what I want people to do is see the world through my work \u2013 encourage people to travel, to see the beauty around us,\u201d she concludes.

\u201cI try to put that into my work \u2013 that sort of daring, inquisitive, fun way of looking at life.\u201d

As holiday bashes start to fill your social calendars, ladies, fixating on the perfect couture for making the scene oughtn\u2019t hog all your time and attention. Festive makeup, after all, can truly make a look. In that light, consider pairing your seasonal sartorial sizzle with one or more of these four hot cosmetic strategies:

Classic. Start with your regular makeup routine \u2013 wash, moisturize, cover, conceal and powder \u2013 before drawing a winged line on your upper eyelid, using a black liquid eyeliner. Next, coat both your top and bottom lashes with black mascara. A wing and thick lashes combine perfectly for beauty and classicism. To finish the look, add a classic red lip liner and lipstick.

Glitz and glam. Apply your favorite glittery eye shadow \u2013 think metallic, such as silver, gold or rose gold \u2013 to your lids. Next, add a matte brown shade to your creases for extra depth and dimension. Because your eyes star in your facial show, so to speak, use your favorite nude lip color to create the perfect neutral-looking pout.

Bold. Pack your lids with any gold shimmering eye shadow. (To emphasize the pigment even more than usual, dampen your makeup brush before dipping it into the shadow \u2013 a wet brush makes eye shadows look extra pigmented and shimmery.) Next, apply eyeliner and mascara however you prefer. Then, treat your lips with a dark purple or red lip liner, filling them in with a dark, vampy lipstick \u2013 a gorgeous look for any holiday gala, but especially New Year\u2019s Eve.

Simple. Apply your makeup normally, making sure to give your cheeks the attention they deserve. Then, apply pink blush to the apples of your cheeks, blending it out. Because you\u2019re going for a flushed-cheek look, incidentally, feel free to use the blush generously. To complement those blushing cheeks, add a dusty rose lipstick to your lips.

Experimenting with new makeup techniques always makes for great fun, especially around the holidays. So if you\u2019ve always wanted to try a fun, festive makeup look, ladies, take the time to make it happen this season!
