MUJUS designer Paola Delgado started her journey in 2011. After working for Goldman Sachs as an investment banker for four years, she decided to travel back to her childhood country of Peru. Paola's ultimate goal during her return to Peru was to discover who she really was and what she cared about in life. While traveling around Peru, Paola decided to use her knowledge to work towards creating a company that would reflect her own values and beliefs.
MUJUS is the reflection of Paola's traditional Peruvian roots combined with the urban life of Brooklyn. Its jewelry and accessories demonstrate the use of high quality and yet, ecofriendly materials. Instead of using plastic, MUJUS focuses on using more organic materials such as corozo. This is a seed that comes from palm trees within the rainforests of South America and is the only sustainable substitute to animal ivory. Not only does MUJUS create jewelry, the company also makes opportunities.
MUJUS creates its craft with the belief that people should be employed under fair work standards that help them to develop and grow. The company’s hope is to touch the lives of people worldwide through its designs and opportunities.

Luca Chiara is a New York City and Hudson Valley based company specializing in fine accessories for men and women. Our Italian inspired, American designed products are made of proven durable materials such as water resistance nylon, cotton canvas, water repellent acrylic coated rip stop and soft grained vegan leather.
We craft all of our products with great pride and ingenuity. Most credit cards, ATM cards and passports have digitally coded computer chips that contain sensitive information that can be unknowingly stolen from a distance. That said, our wallets and passport cases offer RFID blocking from identity thief, unauthorized credit card use and other cyber banking crimes. These products are soft, flexible and thin despite being literally lined with steel.
As an environmentally conscious company, we only use soft grained
vegan leather. Oftentimes, real leather uses a tremendous amount of dyes, chemicals and tints to get shades even. These treatments are extremely polluting and harsh on the planet. Our products are designed to be fashionable and functional for the hectic lifestyle of the 21century
but are based on 19 century old world quality.
The owner's great grandfather and great great grandfather, Luca and Donato Chiara, began their business in 1902 when they opened a small shoe store in Italy. Many years later after coming to the United States, they continued their craft in the New York area.

After having worked for over 25 years with several big name brands like; Kenneth Cole, Ben Sherman and Bloomingdale's, he decided to translate his experience in the accessory industry and continue the family tradition by launching the brand to honor his ancestors.

Our company Ponchos Rojas is the culmination of many intersecting interests and passions. Greg is from the U.S. Colorado, and Catalina was born and raised in La Paz, Bolivia. We crossed paths in design school and now live in NYC.
Our love of nature, family, and a passion to know where we come from has led us to travel throughout Bolivia to see the beautiful natural environments, experience the local customs, and learn from the fascinating history this area has. The high plateau of Bolivia and Peru has been the cradle of South American cultures for thousands of years. Not only have the ancient cultures of this area given the world modern staples like spicy chilies and potatoes, but these people also had one of the most advanced and beautiful weaving techniques in the ancient world. These techniques have lasted the test of time and the curve of history, but modernity is finally threatening to erase this weaving knowledge and the beautiful woven goods once and for all.
We wish to share the pieces we have found and the knowledge we have gleaned with the world, and in the process to help save a little bit of history. While we aren't there yet we are working towards helping to fund programs that help teach weaving techniques so everyone can enjoy what it has taken millennia to produce.

The name Ixmucane (ish-moo-ka-né) was inspired by my Guatemalan-Mayan heritage and can be translated as “mother earth” or the creator of life and light.
While growing up I learned to love the raw beauty and simplicity of nature. I was taught by my grandmother, who often created balms and tonics from herbs sprouting on our backyard, that nature had amazing gifts for us and there was nothing that we couldn't heal with a few of it’s generous ingredients. She would cover my skin in aloe vera, soothe any irritations with honey and rinse my hair with rosemary and rose water. Her love for herbs, botanicals and natural and organic products became my driving passion for creating this beautiful line of skin care.
Ixmucane Skin Care vows to never use synthetic preservatives, parabens, artificial perfumes, dyes or any other harmful chemicals in our products.
Our collection is simple yet effective just like every single natural element that makes it unique.
Ixmucane skin care is carefully handcrafted in small batches utilizing only high quality rich and nourishing ingredients that work together to strengthen, renew, protect and rejuvenate your delicate skin.

I have worked as a designer in NYC for 10 years. But, as a closet environmentalist, I have been recently looking into the effects of fast fashion and finding it going against most of the values I hold dear. I have joined communities of designers, shop owners, writers, and teachers in NYC that are spreading awareness of the waste and exploitation that go along with fast fashion. Now that my eyes are open I have decided to move forward with trying to start my own slow fashion and ethical line.
As I followed my dreams of traveling through India, I was inspired by meeting the artisans along the way. The amount of craft that is embedded into the culture there is truly inspiring. I fell in love with the art of block printing, and Have Love, Must Travel was born. Sophisticated boho-inspired clothing for women hand printed in by artisans in India. I collaborate directly with artisans in India to carve and print my own fabrics. I only use natural fibers and different viscose qualities in my line and it is produced at an ethical factory I have visited and worked in myself.
Yankin shoes were created by busy women, for busy women, out of a need for a foldable ballet flat that met their lifestyle demands. Designed by founders Takiyah Stephenson, Taisha Stephenson and Candice Stephenson, the trio were tired of swapping out their high-end leather heels for a frumpy pair of cheap metallic folding flats that wore out in a week.
In their gripe of finding the perfect foldable ballet flat, they sought to create a shoe that could be worn from day to night without sacrificing style or professionalism. Creating a shoe that was durable, comfortable, and smart were musts in the design process. Yankin is carefully handcrafted in Macerata, Italy with quality Italian leather.
Fold. Lift, Tuck. Yankin folds in three easy steps for ultimate functionality so you can change into heels for that important presentation. Just tuck them into your purse and yank them back out when you’re done.
Unlike most foldable flats that expose your feet to the turmoil of feeling every pebble and crack in the ground, Yankin features a solid triple sole that protects your feet while ensuring comfort. All styles come with a custom shoe pouch to keep your Yankins protected when they’re off duty - it’s the least we could do for their hard work!
Your former frumpy flats will no longer be the culprit of a daily walk of shame. It’s time for a Yankin upgrade.

I named my shop "Pixiu" after the Chinese mythological creature. Growing up, I was given crystal pendants carved into the shape of a Pixiu. My mother told me that it was for protection and good luck. I wanted the same sentiment to go with the pieces that I make. I hope each one finds a great home and will bring you luck as well!
I started making jewelry for myself. I wanted unique, high quality yet affordable pieces due to my particular taste and skin sensitivities to specific metals. I am careful to use only 14k gold fill and sterling silver, so rest easy if you have nickel or brass allergies!

PLAITLY is a Brooklyn-based jewelry brand, founded by architect Caroline Quinio, that explores emerging technologies in jewelry design. Each piece is designed digitally using 3d-modeling software and scripting to achieve complex shapes and forms inspired by nature and the built environment.
As digital technology becomes more and more integrated into our daily lives, the concept of "handmade" evolves with the times. PLAITLY jewelry bridges the gap between craft and technology, redefining "handmade" as a process that begins with freehand digital 3d-modelling and ends with hand polishing and finishing. 3d-printing allows scripts to become physical, tangible works of art, and 3d-printed components are elevated through integrating traditional beads, chains, and crystals. The final result is a statement piece that could not have been created any other way.
From our studio to your home, we strive to create elegant and refined jewelry that tells your stories and can be worn either everyday or during life's special moments.
I’ve lived in NYC for 8 years. I moved here to study Communicative Sciences and Disorders at New York University and went on to finish my Master’s of Science in Speech Language Pathology at Brooklyn College. While my love of science lives on, I felt a yearning to fulfill the other side of my brain, the more emotional and artistic side. I've been working with clay consistently for 2 years but I dabbled a bit during my childhood. I love that ceramics give me aspects of chemistry, physics, as well as emotional and artistic expression in one experience. I work with a white clay and a red clay. I utilize a pottery wheel to create the base for some pieces and with others I sculpt them by hand or by shaping clay slaps. When I create a piece I focus on the functional aspects as well as the decorative because I am interested in exploring the two parts of my brain. My favorite part of creating a piece is the feeling of finding something that is already there versus pushing to create a specific thing. I hope my pieces make people smile as they are meant to be whimsical and fun.
“Hi, I’m Pantera, the hands and heart behind Brooklyn Mojo, Inc. I’m a textile-printing gal born and raised in (you guessed it) Brooklyn, New York.”
I love textiles, always have, always will. My love of hand printed textiles, especially kitchen towels, stems from a desire to beautify objects that I use everyday. I can’t resist the allure of a new kitchen towel. They’re like catnip!
My original designs are printed, via screen printing or block printing, onto 100% cotton cloth. I print with eco-friendly water-based inks. After the printing process, the fabric is heat set for ink longevity.
Bringing my designs to life, from first sketch to finished object, has been so fulfilling.
The box stories is all about felt and Illustrations. I make Nursery Art, greeting cards, hair accessory, notebooks etc. all handmade from my living room in Brooklyn . I also have a slight obsession for owls :)

Rock Dove is currently a small team consisting of me, Carolyn Baccaro, and my husband Mickey Dwyer. Founded in Brooklyn—home of the Rock Dove, aka pigeon— our studio is now located in Beacon, New York, just north of the city in the Hudson Valley. My love affair with copper and rocks began when I learned that copper was the first metal to be used in jewelry making. One of the few elements to occur in nature in its pure, metallic form, our ancestors have adorned themselves in copper since at least 8,700 B.C. I love using this ancient metal to craft unique jewelry using a modern method.
The earth is strange and beautiful. At Rock Dove, we aim to enhance the splendor of natural rocks and minerals by surrounding them in the element of copper.
Electroforming is a metal forming process which uses an electrolyic bath and a low current of electricity to deposit metals onto a conductive surface. Molecule by molecule, we slowly form a copper ring setting around a natural rock or mineral that has been secured to a hand-hammed ring band. Each piece takes 10 to 48 hours to form ensuring that no two pieces are ever the same.
Our jewelry is hand-finished and coated with a natural copper sealant to delay the metal's natural oxidation process. When you put on a handmade ring or pendant from our collection, you’re wearing a small piece of nature, made possible by science.

I spent my childhood alternating between sitting on the floor of my mom's sewing room and helping my dad in his wood shop. I watched them with a careful eye and picked up their incredible attention to detail. Now, I'm a photographer, designer and maker living in Brooklyn. I make baskets, necklaces, and totes in my studio in East Williamsburg.
Inspired by base materials, we design and produce objects of need and want not limited by subject. At the beginning is a material, with its unique properties and behavior to be studied and to be inspired by in. For this reason, we categorize our products by base material categories without limits on the subject. “La materia prima”, the base material often referenced in Italian cooking, is essential to the success and quality of any notable meal. Just like a good chef would hand pick his ingredients, we choose the highest quality materials and true experts available to materialize our ideas. Food is essential to life, so is beauty... and the need to create.
I met Hermes for the first time for lunch in Milan. He was obsessing over a reproduction of a stone tube with a brass and felt top, used by an old electrical company for their vintage internal airmail system. Immersion in arts and design was my personal trajectory and the story of my family for generations. Shared passion for unique and well made started our project “with material”- Conmateria.

Hello! My name is Sophia Haas-Salmieri and I'm a native New Yorker working and living in Brooklyn with my husband Daniel and dog Ronni.
In my studio I paint, marble and explore color through bundle and immersion dyeing using natural materials like flowers, plants and food scraps. I also teach art workshops and collaborate with nonprofit organizations that promote community, diversity and a love for the arts.
Although I'm a city kid, I've always been drawn to the natural world and plant growth—I'm slowly becoming a crazy plant lady! I find thorns and prickles beautiful in themselves and I love their purpose; a part of the plant whose intention is to protect the whole, allowing it to continue growing.
Having a background in theater and early childhood education, I've always been inspired by exploratory experiences that create opportunities for movement and the use of our senses with the hope of connecting us to place and time. I try to recreate this experience for myself in my studio and enjoy discovering new ways to create art and design.

Born and raised in Charleston West Virginia, I grew up with a passion for nature, movement, and making things with my hands.

I have been living and working in Brooklyn for some 30 years surrounded by a creative environment. Over the years I have made functional ceramics and branched out into wall art.
I have begun making works inspired by my surroundings and memories. Using images from old family photographs, movie and television images, and my own collection of photographs, and ones that I have admired that other people have taken, I translate them to my ceramic tiles and functional work. Using my knowledge of ceramic firing and application of glazes I have embarked on making this exciting wall art. Using my slip-cast box tile form or commercial tiles to recreate these images in clay and glaze I have opened up a new avenue for my creative exploration.
Challenging myself to create larger and larger wall pieces has been part of the process. I design my work in my Brooklyn studio, which involves much planning and research. Learning new ways to translate and interpret the images that interest me has been an exciting adventure. I hope that you will enjoy what I have produced so far.
I have now begun bringing the new techniques that I have been working on with the wall art back into my functional ceramics. This has been rewarding in opening up new possibilities.

Lisa Mignoli founded Metrix Jewelry in 2013. Growing up in New York City, and graduating the prestigious Fashion Institute, Lisa is used to a constant state of motion. Therefore, she takes comfort in the few things that remain constant. A triangle will always be a triangle and a square will always have four sides. Geometric shapes are at the center of all Metrix Jewelry’s creations.
"When I design a piece, I love to combine materials that aren’t usually put together," she says. Lisa’s creative method gives Metrix its signature style - futuristic, funky and always unique.
Even though multiples are produced, each piece is always special and unique because of its handcrafted nature.

Aki Kano is an artist and designer living in Brooklyn, NY. For fifteen years she designed for such fashion houses as Vera Wang and Ralph Lauren, but always felt drawn to the meticulous and magical art of portraiture, where the emotional world comes to life before your very eyes.
She experimented with oil paints and watercolors, and then one day painted the first watercolor portrait--of the most personal subject she had: her baby boy. Since that day Aki has painted many more portraits, always guided by the quiet passion evident in her captivating work. Her goal as a portrait artist is to reveal the pure and essential aspects of the person, and reflect in the piece her own unique understanding of the subject.
"But painting is not magical to me," Aki says. "It's more like training, like exercise. A lot of times it's just hard work. Then there are moments, when it's a good painting, where I think, wow, wait--how did I do that?"
My name is Aileen and I am the creator of The Urban Loom. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband, my two kids, and our dog, Dexter.
Originally from Co. Cork Ireland, my family immigrated to New York City in 1986.
For the past 15 years I have been working as a packaging and branding designer, and although I still love that work, I began to crave a more hands-on tactile creative outlet. I've always loved interior design, and while drooling over the amazing spaces on my Instagram feed, I came across a picture which featured a woven wall hanging. I was instantly hooked. So, I quickly signed up for an introduction to weaving class, and have had weaver fever ever since.
I really love this craft, and it has become such a meditative and cathartic experience for me. I have also found the weaving community to be so kind and open, and I can honestly say that I am a happier person since I began on this weaving journey.

Muny is a collection of contemporary kids' clothing, women's clothing and accessories, all designed in Brooklyn, NY. It is characterized by natural fabrics that are made using ancient techniques of wood block printing, handloom weaving and hand dyeing. The fabrics whether handwoven or block printed, are of utmost quality and softness. The silhouettes are simple and classic, focusing the attention on the beautiful fabrics. We believe that the kids clothing should last hence all dresses can be worn as tunics later. The styles are easygoing and comfortable, with room to grow and play.
Muny is founded by a Brooklyn mom, who has combined traditional Indian textiles and hand printing methods with contemporary graphics and colors to create a unique clothing line. Greatly inspired by the creative energy and the diversity of new york city and the beautiful fabrics she grew up with, Samara embarked on this venture in 2011. She has studied and practiced architecture and interior design in New York city for the last fourteen years. She has a bachelors in architecture and a masters in communications design but no prior experience in fashion or textiles. Even as a young person in India, she was drawn to handloom fabrics and loved India's tradition of textile handicrafts. With this company she attempts to not only promote the beautiful fabrics but also modernise and contemporize the prints and patterns. ‘Muny’ pronounced moo-nee is MU for Mumbai and NY for New York, a brand born out of convergence of these two parallel worlds.
We work with amazing artisan groups that realize our modern patterns on to the cottons and silks used in our products. Handwoven and hand block printed fabrics are naturally eco-friendly as they require minimum to zero electricity during its production. Our patronage helps preserve these age-old traditional techniques of printing and weaving that also provide livelihood for many rural artisans.
A British native, Steve earned his BA with Honors from the University of Central England with a major in Art & Design.
He considers himself to be an artist rather than a traditional jeweler, although he has worked since 1996 in the jewelry making industry for both international selling jewelers and as an independent designer.
Since 2003, Riley has been creating hand made art & jewelry in New York City. Each piece is meticulously hand crafted from recycled metals. All Steve Riley rings are suitable for civil partnerships, engagement, weddings, eternity, anniversaries, birthdays etc. Stones can be added to most designs. Custom work is welcome accommodated via the web or by private appointment at his workshop in Red Hook, Brooklyn, NY.
He prides himself on making everything in house and never sourcing my work out out to foreign countries. He supports human rights, conflict-free trade and environmentally conscious production. His designs range in style from hand made squiggle chains to animal print rings.
Steve likes to work in what he calls a “modern primitive” style, obsessing over each mark, the controlled and random details are critical. Strong, bold, and organic, each piece is created as a play between materials and how that translates in terms of what is traditionally considered "masculine" or "feminine", “art” or “jewelry”.
My name is Lissette Padilla and I am the fine art photographer and photo jewelry maker behind my shop called "The BQE".
It all started for me as a hobbyist photographer about 7 years ago. In the past 3 years, I realized my passion for photography was very real and decided to work hard to pursue it professionally through selling at Artisan markets, festivals, seasonal events and online. My work focuses on a lot of places throughout New York City sprinkled with some still life and nature. I love to explore each borough to give it an authentic feel with a bit of a soft spot for Queens.
My 2nd passion is creating photo jewelry from the photographs I have taken throughout NYC and a little beyond. Each jewelry piece is handmade by me and I enjoy working with different jewelry finds and pendants to create unique pieces of wearable art for you to wear. I am a self-taught artist currently residing in Briarwood (Jamaica), Queens where most of my crafting and editing takes place.

The new collection is inspired by Mihail Bulgakov’s novel “Master and Margarita”, which portrays an unconditional love story.

Disappointed with not being able to find a one-stop-shop for a variety of travel-friendly, natural self-care and wellness products, she created BIRD+ANCHOR to make it easy and convenient for travelers to take their self-care on the go.

Based in New York, Yun Boutique handcrafts jewelry inspired by the divinely imparted heritage of Chinese culture. Our work has been featured at New York Fashion Week. Our jewelry has been praised and modeled by celebrities like Miss World Canada Anastasia Lin,
television host and entrepreneur Jing Li, New York fashion designer Alice Yim, and multiple actresses, including Camren Bicondova
of Gotham, Candice Zhao of Transformers, and Ashley Gerasimovich of The Detour, among others.
Traditionally, China had been known as the Divine Land, reflecting Chinese people's deep belief in human-cosmic harmony. At Yun Boutique, we continue this heritage through our practice of Falun Dafa, an ancient Chinese meditation practice. We believe that life is a journey of spiritual selfcultivation; of becoming our best original selves.
We hope that when you wear a piece of Yun Boutique jewelry, you will share the eternal spirit of the Divine Land.
Mynlyn was born after founder and creator, Hannah Robinett, desired to explore new outlets in her work as a conceptual artist.
"I've always had the dilemma of not finding jewelry that I loved. If I did, it seemed that everyone else had it. My desire is to design jewelry that is not only unique and artfully crafted, but limited in the quantity it is made. Each piece truly is distinct and a work of art. My new found love for 3D printing has allowed me to bring these ideas to life."
Hannah designs all her pieces in Brooklyn, NY. She then produces prototypes on her Makerbot 3D printer before sending them to Shapeways to be printed in Bronze, Gold, Sterling Silver, and Nylon. The process is meticulous yet she enjoys every minute of it.

My name is Tatiana and I am a self-taught fiber artist based in Brooklyn, NY. I am very passionate about supporting small, local, and (whenever possible) women run businesses. To me, shopping small and local is woven into every step of the creative process. Additionally, I firmly believe in the importance of developing sustainable, environmentally friendly practices. I put a lot of thought into every stage of the creative process, from deciding what materials to use and where to buy it from, to the level of detail that goes into every stitch.
Wallcojr Designs started on the street in New York City. Having vending on the streets for many years I wanted a place where people could view my work from near or far. Though I think the wonderful thing about traveling is having the conversation with the maker, we can have a web conversation. I love doing custom pieces, everyone deserves special personal art.
The idea for Kwohtations, as with most ventures and ridiculous ideas in general, was seeded in the idle chatter between two friends over coffee on a lazy Sunday. My friend Amy and I were reminiscing and laughing over our assorted (mis)adventures, bumbling moments, and personal triumphs. Too bad they don’t make cards for all these random occasions, we said. Like when we get too drunk (it’s embarrassing) or have ambiguous feelings for someone (it's confusing) or decide to pursue our passions despite a myriad of pressures to do otherwise (it’s terrifying and exhilarating). Or for all the things we really think and sometimes want to say.
Each of these cards is inspired by some funny incident or real conversation that we’ve had. It is the happy brainchild of our own propensity to apologize profusely and somewhat unnecessarily for little blunders, and conversely, to stumble into situations (bad haircuts, corporate jobs) where we would be the likely recipients of such condolences. We recognize that we don't all look and love the same (nor should we), and that we don’t have to accomplish something quote-unquote extraordinary to be someone truly special. Also, we can be pretty awkward in the way we tell someone we like them.
So these cards are for all of us who aren’t 100% pulled together, but kind of like it that way.

Le Mondeur (n.) : from French "le monde" (the world) but utterly Franglais, meaning the worlder, world traveler, adventurer or, more simply, a person of the world; also used to characterize a person who global adventure shops in the pursuit of hard-to-find, wearable art.
Le Mondeur was founded by Jess, who has an unshakeable penchant for adventure shopping. Jess began traveling and shopping the globe over 15 years ago. In that time, her love for seeking out unique jewelry and clothing became an unexpected way for her to better connect with the places and people she visited. Her collection also became a way for her to share her travel stories once home when strangers and friends would ask her where she found a certain necklace, scarf, dress, earrings, etc. Jess loves the human connection woven into these storied objects as they pass from creator to collector to admirer, adding layers of meaning at each exchange.
Le Mondeur was created to bring those curious admirers (and you!) a way of shopping for these hard-to-find pieces while also becoming a part of the story. From new adventures to old haunts, Jess travels deeper to find beautiful pieces of wearable art, defined by their fun and bold takes on traditional high artisanship. Jess looks for conversation pieces that can be effortlessly incorporated into any contemporary wardrobe.
Le Mondeur works with a range of artisans, including individuals or families of artisans, cooperatives and fashion-forward designers. Each of these collaborations is unique, but all are guided by certain overarching principles.
Le Mondeur believes in slow fashion. Every piece in our collections is chosen based on its lasting quality and use of traditional technique and local resources. For our collaborations, Le Mondeur seeks out artisans who employ techniques steeped in the cultural history and traditions with which they identify. The purpose of this is twofold: to financially empower artisans by providing them with consistent work and to support these continued traditions that too often fade away when mass production moves in. Le Mondeur also aims to support and highlight fashion-forward younger designers who are re-imagining learned techniques from their communities in innovative ways.
So much of what we love at Le Mondeur is creating meaningful and enduring relationships with artisans. This takes on many forms. For one, we strive to engage in direct trade with artisans or those who represent their best interests. This cuts out the middlemen and the extra costs that would otherwise be passed onto you. Most importantly, this ensures that artisans set their own prices to reflect the true cost of labor, materials and many other related factors that go into the production of each piece. This also means that we often get to visit artisans at their homes, workshops or stores to see how and where they work, and to learn more about them.

I workwith Clay, making handbuilt ceramic vessels suggestive of the female form with attitude.
Stvdio Brooklyn was founded in 2013, and debuted its first line of jewelry a year later. At the heart of Stvdio’s designs is a focus on construction, finding inspiration in the way components fit together and interact with the human form. Throughout the line, an inquiring eye will find playful spins on classic structure: a cleverly hidden clasp, a bracelet that uses tension to hold itself together, even an earring that you can choose to wear backward. These inventive constructions are combined with effortlessly graceful silhouettes to create the Stvdio Brooklyn aesthetic.
I graduated from RISD in Jewelry and Metalsmithing, and spent my first 7 years working for fashion brands designing jewelry, my last gig being the designer for Madewell. I started Stvdio because I really missed using my hands, and was burnt out from fast fashion. I wanted to give myself a chance to fall back in love with everything that I liked about being a creative, and designer. I'm inspired by modern design, comfort, and pushing the boundaries of construction. I'm a nerd for soldering metals together that are typically hard to meld, techniques that are time-consuming, and constructions that give the pieces unusual movement.
