The fun of free play is in the gathering of materials. I start by gathering components that go well together and colors that compliment each other. If a theme starts to come together, I may or may not go with it. This necklace developed into an iconic theme. Beads, charms, a bottle cap and other trinkets were intuitively designed onto a charcoal Japanese cord. SOLD.

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.
