When you first
meet Harry Jay, you know he is an ®iginal just like the wearable art he
creates. Harry is quite a character with his Pink colored bubble sunglasses or
his cowboy hat and leather fringed jacket From the East Coast to California,
people know of Harry Jay! They say "Oh he is that ... Latin DJ... writer...
drummer... inventor and award winning photographer/painter ...
embroider/designer... fashion designer... most recently ... jeweler ... and
singer with a new CD soon to be released.
Simply put, he
embroiders threads that sparkle for the fashion conscious woman, man, child or
business. From intricate designs on leather jackets, T-shirts, sweatshirts,
hats, to beautiful wall hangings with hidden themes and messages (these have
always been a hit for Harry). The complexity mentioned above, comes in when he
embroiders with the use of appliqué. How many threads does he use? That's the
secret! He created a technique in which he does more with less thread but makes
the garment look so rich and full. These designs helped to educate the
embroidery industry that the computerized machines were capable of beautiful art
Variations of stitch length, patterns and direction as well as careful color and
shading selections add a realistic look to the designs. Harry also creates
"industry excitement." through the use of appliqué with the blending
of thread and fabric. He ads an underlay of foil to cast a hint more sparkle to
the garment or product He also uses fake fur in wildlife designs and deep
velvets enhance the head of a mallard and corduroy brings out the ruggedness of
a wild stallion. Yet, with all of this versatility, the embroidered pattern
remains the same creating a consistent quality, because the design is stored for
virtually unlimited runs on the computerized machines. Although some of the
designs are computerized, Harry Jay ®iginals is just that... original to you or
your business? He is a "creative"; hence you can put yourself in his
hands and be well cared for as far as “stock creation" or one of a kind
does lettering, monogramming and business logos. He does it ALL with style,
spirit and humor.
