Rose Riley's Profile

About

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.

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 lives of my second-hand finds, and I much prefer salvaging, or "repurposing", materials than buying them new. But what I love the most is to be on the road, discovering new things and creating new things with whatever happens to be handy in the moment…

I enjoy bringing a little color and novelty into day-to-day objects, and I try to create things that are functional and will accompany you for a long time. I hope you will enjoy them…

Have a wonderful day!
