About/Contact Me


I’m Yolanda Keil. I am a dreamer/former blogger and commercial/costume stylist ... 
 
                                                                             ... I am Fringed Jewels.

Some Facts About Me:

    1. I am not the norm. I don’t follow traditional methodology. I prefer to learn the “rules”, and then boldly carve out my own unique niche (I have been called a rebel before.). I look for the unusual … the loopholes and gaps; seeking new opportunities. 
    2. I spent a semester studying abroad in France (initially a month in Cannes, then Paris). It helped me see beyond “my little bubble”.
    3. I love working with other creatives ... It is very energizing.
    4. I have an image consulting background (trained via an accredited course approved by the Association of Image Consultants Int’l (AICI)). I often volunteered to host style seminars for the local “Dress for Success” chapter.
    5. My marketing and web content experience is quite diverse ... Job titles have included Consultant, Online Communications Editor, SEO Analytics Lead, Associate Marketing Manager, etc. You get it ... I have had a variety of roles...

 


   
 ... The common thread is that I innately brought a fresh “eye”. I think out of the box and see new possibilities. It’s bringing in that rebel ...  questioning the norm to say “What if...?”


The Background Story:


I started experimenting with alterations ... I found my passion in channeling my unique style into my deconstructed & reworked clothes. I converted 90% of my packed closet (focusing on those rarely/never worn pieces) into a sustainable collection of funky creations that I couldn’t wait to wear.

I then applied that same deconstructed & reworked aesthetic to each crafted accessory. Each creation is truly a unique original with its own story ... an artistic celebration of creativity. The idea of a story behind each piece makes it more personal. This was the start of a wearable portfolio to showcase my stylist “eye” and Fringed Jewels.
