About

After spending 10 years living overseas, I have found my way back to color! I love color in everything. Although my travels were wonderful, and provide me with a wealth of inspiration, my apartment was white. Everywhere. Unending. And now, finally, I have color. Everywhere!

I may find a button at a market, or a unique fabric in a store, or even a piece of jewelry that can be used in the construction of a bag, hat, or pin. Also, many pieces feature my signature macrame handles, all of which are handcrafted by me.
