Rose Riley's Profile
My name is Rose Riley, and I am a bit of a compulsive crafter. After my first pair of jeweller's pliers, gifted to me when I was ten, I was on a roll; since then I have sold my jewelry, papier-mâché lamps & mobiles, pinback buttons, felt pieces, patchwork creations and whatever else I could make with my own 2 hands in markets right and left. If I could, I would make everything I need myself, or trade something I made for it!
When I am not at home in my workshop, I like to travel around discovering the crafts of the countries I visit. I am fascinated by the design of everyday objects, and delight in finding the subtle differences or blatant similarities in design from one culture to the next.
I am a bit of a fabric hoarder (I bring some back from every place I go, as well as from church basement sales…). I love dreaming up the previous live…
