Ok, so we are off by a couple of days - LOL. I hope this edition of Ava's Allocations finds you all well and relaxing from a joyous weekend. Let me just update a piece of information from the last blog post.... The web site for the Senior America Pageant is www.senioramerica.org There is still time to apply to be a contestant. As you may have seen from our TV show, there is plenty of trained staff around to help you with any aspect of your entry. You must be 60 plus years old to enter....

Moving on to this weeks topic: Hand Crafted, Hand made and Hand Selected....boy oh boy is this exciting ! you will see all three of these fantastic individuals mentioned on Ava's Casual Chat this month on the WBTVN. ( Women's Broadcast Television Network) 2:00 Eastern/ 1:00 Central on Thursday April 27th !
First up, Hand Crafted...OMG Miss Kellene Kulas.
I can't wait to share these photos with you here. Kellene will be working on a huge project with us and how honored am I for that ! She is not only equipped with a fine arts degree ( All me !) yet she is also a trained "METALSMITH" !
Yes, you heard it here, Metalsmith..... Kellene hand crafts and designs fine jewelry in New York City. She has worked all over the World gaining the most positive inspiration. How lucky are we that she is back in NYC and fairly close to me ! LOL
Kellene has worked on pieces for Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef and Arpels and Lalique just to name a few.... Her World Travel has been a driving influence on the types of designs she creates. From hand crafted wedding bands and rings to beautifully designed necklaces and , what I like to call the KELLENE TWIST !
Kellene invests her time , talent and dollars into the fact that you are getting a pure gemstone, fine strand of silver and good quality which sets her apart from other designers. By that I mean that she personally seeks out the very best of the kind.... it's not just a rock or a stone found in a store or a basket someplace.... She is all about finding the perfect energy, light and value from each piece she makes. So what is the KELLENE TWIST! Well, just the description is a twist on what others do in the industry. She also takes it to another level with her Twisted jewelry and pins such as these.............
Here are some of the other wild and wonderful pieces that she has made. You can check her out at
