Growing up I spent hours watching my grandmother do beautiful stitch work, she was a great seamstress. I also watched my mother do amazing crochet work as well as almost anything creative. When my favorite jeans developed rips, and holes, I decided to save them. A bit of stitching, pieces of vintage crochet and some boro stitching, made my jeans better than new.
It was a cold day in Paris... I found someone else he said, as he packed a bag and left me, leaving behind his favorite navy blazer and red silk tie. In anger and tears, I ripped the blazer to shreds, cut up the tie, and tore into the jewelry he had gifted me....Today I design artisan jewelry and accessories from those shreds of fabric, buttons off the blazer, and bits of broken jewelry. Every piece has a story...SWEET REVENGE !!!
