I have always been in love with the color blue. It began as a simple child’s love of the color of the sky and water. My blue love grew when I started surfing around age 12 and scuba diving at 13. At around age 14, I start making ceramics and cobalt glaze became my favorite. Eventually I also fell in love with denim jeans. I became a jean designer and spend hours daily reviewing the shade and hue of Agave denim fabrics and washes. Over the last few years I have acquired many blue shoes, blue vehicles and blue stones. All of this makes total sense because my real name is not really Shafer but Szafir. Szafir is the polish word for sapphire.
