miasma designs was created in 2004 by artist/designer, jennifer reed. based in montreal, she is influenced by the unique styles and fashions experienced in a multi-cultural, urban setting. her creations integrate a wide variety of materials, including found and recycled materials, glass, wire, chain, feathers, wood, fabric, and precious and semi-precious stones. her designs attempt to evoke a mystical quality through the juxtaposition of opposites: natural vs. synthetic, hard vs. soft, excess vs. simplicity. as a result, her work is both bold and delicate simultaneously. understanding that accessories are a very personal exploration and declaration of an individual's character, her pieces are created to make a statement.
