About

My mom always called me bug, which over time and funloving friendships has evolved into countless nicknames that hearken back to my happy-go-lucky childhood of rescuing earthworms, building mud huts, pressing leaves and chasing butterflies. I'm an only child and self-taught at nearly everything, which is how I keep out of trouble.

I believe in seeding the world with art and craftsmanship, so I keep my prices low and quality high. (It's fun to makeum, more fun to seeum go!)

Each flower is original, hand cut and folded, sealed with may layers of water-resistant acrylic medium, wired with Czech glass beads and generally toughened up for a life of wear and tear.

As they are made of paper, they will darken over time with skin and hair oils, developing a rich golden-brown tone. They may crack, peel, and get a bit dog-eared...like your favorite book.

In the event of soiling, wipe your piece down with a dry or slightly damp cotton cloth. Don't go swimming with them on, and try to use an umbrella in wet weather, otherwise skip through all the sprinklers you like and embrace the gentle aging of your piece. Wear it until it wears out!
