New: Collaboration from Tweezerman and The Art of Elysium

Each year I look forward to this particular collaboration as I am a tried and true Tweezerman fan and absoltely love the cross over with a charity that is dedicated to empowering artists. I have been using Tweezerman products for over 20 years and am never disappointed with the quality or longevity of the products.

In collaboration with The Art of Elysium, I am excited to introduce Tweezerman’s third annual limited edition tweezer, the Dahlia Mini Slant Tweezer ($17, This bright floral print tweezer was inspired by art created through a collaborative in-hospital workshop with children and artist Andrew Ondrejcak, honoring The Art of Elysium’s 2016 Visionary Recipients: Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler.

One dollar from each tweezer sold will be donated to The Art of Elysium, a charitable organization dedicated to empowering artists and communities of need to join together and emotionally triumph over their circumstances through art.
