Announcement   Hand woven naturally dyed jewelry by textile artist Kelly Ruth.

After 10 years of working as a textile dyer in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Wardrobe department I set out to focus on my own artwork and clothing design. I absolutely love playing with colour, I hope you enjoy what I do!

I have been focusing lately on my new woven jewelry line. It's my latest obsession!

Just finished my first market with my new hand woven, naturally dyed jewelry collection! I'll be listing all my available stock this week!
My new jewelry line has officially launched and the reception I had at my first pop up was super!!
After showing my larger necklaces to the Winnipeg Art Gallery Shop manager, she said " These are great, but some folks would also love them in a size half as big" ...so I came up with this design!

About

Do or Dye!

Growing up I knew I wanted to be a musician, artist or fashion designer. Gratefully I have pursued all three! I started my career working for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, as a textile dyer. Once I was ready to really develop my artistic voice, I needed to step down from the responsibility of meeting the needs of theatre and film to develop a deeper relationship with the many dye classes, in addition to focusing on my contemporary artwork. I have come a long way and met many of the goals I set out for myself since I started down a solo path.

The joy of working on my clothing line is being able to treat each garment like a painting. Once I am in a middle of dyeing stacks of garments I become addicted. It is one of the most joyful things in my life. The clothing is all my own design. Currently I hire a friend to help me sew the garments so that I can keep up with building my business. I do all the cutting, dyeing, marketing, and some of the sewing.

Once everything is sewn, I dye up each piece from an unbleached or white colour. I choose fabrics for their sustainability factors as well as the ability to move well. Everything is produced in Winnipeg where I live, which is a pretty surreal city to live in as far as Canada goes.

    I really like playing with textile dyes! I worked for theatre and film companies as a textile dyer for about ten years before going out on my own to focus on my textile art and painting.This is my passion!
