Semi-precious, antique and unique beads collected from all over the world, these are but some of her mediums. Add to this high quality fabrics, practical creative design, a love of nature and your in her world. Custom made evening bags, cuffs, belts, bustiers, one-of-a-kind art pieces and accessories made to order. Inna has also started creating housewares(baskets), masks and items for the head. The spirit of Inna's style is grounded in an old world sense of opulence, with a modern sensibility when it comes to materials and design. She's similar in daring and outlook to Paul Poiret or Jeanne Paquin. In her design of accessories one can see something of the creativity and style of Coco Chanel, who(according to Elieen Collard)took notice of women dressing less extravagantly, due to WW1, and created the new innovation of costume jewelry. She replaced expensive necklaces with glass or crystal beads. "Without grading them to size, she mixed pearls with other beads to fashion original jewelry to be worn with her designs". Inna Roizin's creations seem to belong to past(hand-crafted works of art)and the present(where the past is displayed anew via practical, stylish design). The Roizin line also uses recycled materials in some of their fabrics and at times stones that are compressed. Meaning small stones that would be thrown away as waste, they compress them an create a new stone. If you would like to know more or make a purchase:www.innaroizin.com .
