Star & Thimble is designed by me, Colette Penketh. I make everything by hand in the cute little city of Bellingham Washington.
I’ve been creating and crafting since I was a little girl growing up in Seattle Washington. My mom, the amazing accessories designer Deanna DiBene (check out her incredible work at baroqueandroll.etsy.com) taught me all the fundamentals of design; from there I learned from the joy of experimentation.
I’m very inspired by birds, flowers and fun, bright colors as well as antique and vintage home decor. I love to create items that feature a very classic element on a modern medium. I feel that there is such a joy in juxtaposition that I can't resist playing with as many combinations as possible.
I really love my work and I try to create pieces that bring as much joy to the people who choose to make them a part of their lives.
Please feel free to…
