“As I got through my 40’s I found that my personal style evolved into something I could compare to a cake! What I wear is the foundation for my jewelry the way cake is the foundation for icing. The icing is the best part..."

Mary Marino has been a fashion industry insider for over 25 years, identifying trends and giving them commercial viability. Her web site and blog, Flashionista.com, is a voice for lifestyle and fashion trends in the blogosphere. But Mary’s fascination with jewelry came before all that.
Over the years and from all over the world, Mary amassed a huge collection of beads, baubles, and amulets, and it’s still growing! It was only a natural progression that Mary turn her fashion eye toward creating jewelry based on her personal collection and an online jewelry store to make them available to others.
For centuries, jewelry has been worn for many purposes that include enhancing the beauty of the wearer, protecting the wearer, and attracting good things. Besides their beauty and style, each Flashionista Karma Gem is designed to include one or more protective amulets. All are handmade of vintage and limited edition components scored from the dusty secret caches of vintage dealers and individual collectors. No two pieces are exactly alike. All are hand knotted, hand set, or hand cast. In addition to Mary’s line Flashionista Karma Gems, Flashionista.com will feature pieces by other designers whose work complements Mary’s.
Considering the style, beauty and substance of the collection, all the pieces are very well-priced. What could be better right now? Nothing can transform your energy, your attitude and your old sweater like a new piece of jewelry!
