Lizzy Borden is hacking away at art these days. Although the work isn't violent as the name implies, Joan Burton--who designs jewelry under her "Lizzy Borden" label--says it's at least rebellious. Tiny photos of Lucille Ball, Elvis, Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Brady Bunch that are hand-painted and adorned with multicolored beads are converted into earrings, pins and bolo ties, creating conversation wherever they go.

The owners of that house were ready to rip out the offending fireplace, but Swift had a better, less costly alternative. She enlisted Laguna Beach artist Lorenzo George to give the fireplace a face lift.
