My Movember

Rawr! Animal print 'staches.

Why are mustaches growing in my shop?  Movember is just around the corner.  I have made mustache jewelry and key chains out of very unusual materials.  In 2010 and 2011 I made them for the MoSistas up in Quebec.  This year I decided to donate directly to the American Cancer Society in Dennis Hopper's name.  Plus they are fun to make!

It's been over 2 years since the icon, who I proudly call friend succumbed to prostate cancer.  I worked with him on the TV show "Crash". He always made me laugh, and would sing and dance for me.  His way of "loosening up", and easing the stress of movie making.  During this time his cancer returned, and watching him suffer broke my heart.  He was also a fabulous artist. He and I would talk about modern art every day we worked together. I would save the NYTimes Arts section and we would hoot over the auction prices of artists who were his contemporaries.  He encouraged me to leave my job in the movies after looking through my flat file of fine art prints.  I promised him, I would return to making things.  And so my Etsy shops were born.

So men, please  remember to get screened. It's so simple.  Ladies, wear your mustaches to remind them.

  1. Wow, Suz! I can't believe it's been two years. I remember when you first posted about this.
