Peekz Art Shop was based of a vision.
Patricia Reynolds created her own Art business called Peekz Art. She started making and selling jewelry in the summer of 2011 collecting used jewelry, beads, findings and stones. Unpacking boxes from her apartment in Manhattan to New Jersey she found herself with more time to create art and pick up a new skills. Now, she dedicates her time to also heal herself and others through meditation practices and chakra healing. She creates handmade jewelry with gemstones, healing crystals, and wire wrappings. Each creation is unique because of the positive energy that flows from her creative process. It is important for her to create jewelry with healing crystals that assist in healing the Mind (emotionally), Body (physically) and Soul (spiritually.)
Her real inspiration to sell and make jewelry is from her best friend, Tangie, who died in a car accident at 19 years old. PK was also in the car with her but she was fortunate enough to survive. In the hospital after the accident PK’s friends and family came to see her and somehow they all brought her sunflowers coincidentally; so in remembrance of her best friend and her accident she got a tattoo of a sunflower on the back of her neck to remind her that life is short. Tangie’s death pushed her towards art making and selling jewelry so that in a sense her best friend still lives in the spirit of Peekz creations.The best thing about Peekz Art is that she not only makes jewelry for women, but also men too and with her creative and innovative ideas she is able to appeal both sexes. Her stands are full of all different kinds of jewelry from necklaces to rings, to bracelets and they are very colorful. She also has a wide variety of pieces that may suit many different styles and she is willing to adjust some bracelets so that her customers can have the perfect fit.
Peekz has collaborated with other artists to volunteer their time face painting for events in the community. Peekz says ” Face painting opens your eyes to a world of masks, We give a magical experience where you can be what you want even if it is just for a day! For children magic, goes hand in hand with imagination and that is something we love to keep alive! “Her motivation to sell jewelry and work with the community is fueled by her desire to create a path for artist in the community. She uses her crafts to fund for her Fine Art dream. Peekz wants to eventually have her own artist organization with a boutique in the front. The boutique will help fund for the supplies for art workshops she wants to run for children and Adults in the community. As for now, She currently sells her work at craft fairs and on Etsy. She enjoys making people feel good and uplifting the spirits of others that comes through in her creations. At the end of her day she wants to inspire and motivate people to do what they love because “ Dreams make us who we are! “ Peekz
