It’s All In Black and White – so perfectly opposite. As a monochrome form of visual arts, B&W images can be starkly contrasted black and white or combine black and white in a continuum producing a range of shades of grey called greyscale. The CIJ Team are delighted to share their B&W and Greyscale works of art, home decor and accessories.
Graphite pencil drawings. I usually present here my portraits of animals, but today I have something very special. Original illustrations that were presented in my exhibition of fairy tale illustrations. Drawings are framed in a beautiful wooden frame and passepartout. I attach a catalog from the exhibition to the purchased drawing.

I love the graphic appeal of black and white! This clutch is fun and easy to carry! In a cotton print that I call foam and bubble with white background and black dots. It’s a nice little clutch for necessities on the go. Padded and with a wrap around strap that can go on a belt or slip over your wrist.

I love working with black color. The contrast on a white background is fantastic. Simple yet effective. This stippled phalaenopsis is delicate and will fit in perfectly in any home design.

This black and white chalkboard print fabric with words describing God was the perfect fit for my Bible tote bag. The fabric is so beautiful and a great conversation starter as it will have old and new Christians either asking questions or being reminded of the many names our God can be called by.

I think I created this because I think black is elegant and chic – and I didn’t really have anything in my shop with that precise touch of class.

What’s black and white and fabulous?
My love of film noir surfaced once again with these black and white curvaceous earrings. These uniquely shaped hoops are vintage black aluminum stamped with a snake skin pattern. The center cut out has an equally unusual shape. Inside each cut out is a gorgeous round white dangling freshwater pearl.

This black and white infinity scarf is ideal for the summer. The scarf is made of two fabrics. One side is white with little black Polka dots, the other side is black, embroidered with flowers and embellished with flowers in different black and white patterns.
Crochet yoga socks, yin yang gift. According to Taoist principles, the forces of everything in the universe are in constant motion. As the movement continues, each of the forces of energy gradually changes into the other, yin to yang and yang to yin. This is the cycle of all energy. When these opposite energies work in unison the way nature dictates, there is a perfect balance. The yin yang symbol of equal halves, one dark and one light, but also opposing forces come together to create and generate energy – life. Yin creates the form and grows it while the yang generates action energy and expands it. This is the bringing together of two halves to make a complete whole.
