Schoonmaker Studio is known for its immediately recognizable minimalist portraits and pop culture mash-ups, often designed as wearable accessories. Designer/Owner Gail loves to fill folks’ lives with little things that make them smile, and her current Signature Collection of individually hand made products, dubbed CLEVER, is a prime example.
Created to delight the stylish and witty, CLEVER contains something for everyone, whether fans of Fantasy, Science Fiction, or Current Events. The Stars are included: Wars, Trek and bucks, in the form of delightful earrings and a sassy tote. The iconic coffee siren makes an appearance in a patriotic leotard, and classic portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama grace both a bag and best-selling earrings. Fans of space-time travel can enjoy Schoonmaker’s Doctor Who-themed police box artwork on an exquisitely detailed pin or a royal blue tote. Those who favor magic will find themselves spellbound by items like the “Magical Mates Mix ’n’ Match Earrings,” or the “Wizarding World Gift Set.”
The clean minimalist flavor of Schoonmaker’s artwork makes the CLEVER collection not just fun, but classy enough for professional settings. All the bags are made from heavy cotton canvas to ensure durability and long-term enjoyment. The earrings, whose charms are made from shrink film (another pop culture classic!), capture marvelous detail while remaining incredibly lightweight and comfortable. Quality prints, magnets and stickers round out the collection as inclusions in beautiful gift sets.
