He has always been drawing/designing but finally has met the right people to help put the visuals into solid form. Vanness has partnered up with Janet Yang President of Dazzling and J-Y Fashion, to design and create his first ever jewelry line. All of the pieces were designed to reflect where Vanness is currently in his life right now.
