Do You Like My Hat?
shop | blog | facebook | twitter
Although I learned to knit very young around 5 or 6 years old, I did not become ""a knitter" (someone passionate about the craft) until my mid thirties. About two years ago I discovered natural fibers and now knit with nothing else. These fibers can be expensive however and people may shy away from them. That is why I began my Etsy shop. I make accessories that use less yarn so they will be more affordable and more people will discover these fibers. My motto is "everyone deserves a little luxury".

Buying socially and environmentally responsible is also very important to me. On my search for natural fibers I discover wonderful companies, big and small, who are working hard to empower women. Any small thing we can do to reduce poverty and illness particularly for the children of the world is very important to me. People who produce natural fibers are also concerned with the environment, how to properly treat the animals, how to produce and dye wool with fewer or no chemicals, using plants to create yarns. These are the topics that I discuss on my blog.

I am at the very beginning of this experience, but would quit my day job today to devote myself to this full time!


Additions Style
shop | blog | facebook | twitter

I started my creative career 15 years ago as a sterling sliver jewelry designer.  About 5 years ago I decided I wanted to create a new collection that was young, hip, and affordable and Additions was born.

All my pieces are created with recycled and upcycled hardware. My goal is to create pieces that are unique and easy to wear. That is why I experiment all the time to come up with new ways to add color, texture, and designs.

My Etsy shop has a variety of pieces to suit many styles. I have pieces that are unisex, and will look great on a man or women. Several pieces have beads for the person who want more feminine styles, and some pieces have little establishments showcasing the wonderful variety of hardware available.

The process of creating my new collection inspired my blog.  My blog focuses on inspiration, creativity, and business. I am working towards building a community of artistic individuals to inspire each other on our creative journeys.
