About

Crafting from a scientific approach.

I am self taught, and I've learned from experimenting with different materials and techniques to see what I can come up with and what comes out unique and interesting to me. Being a scientist, curiosity and experimentation is in my nature. As a scientist I look for connections and try to use logic to think through problems.

I use a similar approach when I crochet, bead, or approach new materials for my creations in my shop. As I look around me I constantly ask myself what twist can be added to an object to make it different and unique. I enjoy repurposing, recycling, and reusing objects to make something new and different. I like to find new materials for me to try and experiment with such as reclaimed sari silk ribbon, reclaimed cotton yarn, polymer clay, and metal wires to see what I can create with them. I also enjoy writing poetry and taking photographs. I find vintage and older items beautiful and love the story and the history of the pieces. Each item I make I am inspired be something, maybe it's the material, perhaps nature, or something I've noticed, so I try and give the background and story for each listing in my descriptions.

Since I have no training and haven't taken any classes, my creations are from just 'playing' with the materials to make something that I think is really interesting. I think that having no training gives me a unique perspective because when I work with a new material or I'm beading I 'don't know any better,' so to speak, so anything goes. As my shop motto says...there are endless possibilities!

I love the community here on Etsy and everyone is very supportive. It is great to have a place where I can share my hobby and personal creations and share that creative energy that is here among the talented artists here.

    I'm a scientist who has been crafting as a hobby most of my childhood. I started again recently and enjoy to experiment with different materials and inspiration to see what I can make. I make everything myself and run my shop myself.

I ship via USPS first-class or priority mail. If you would like to upgrade to priority mail for faster shipping, please send me a message. USPS first-class mail generally takes between 3-7 days to reach its destination within the U.S. and 7-45 days internationally from the time that it's shipped. The shipping costs are approximate, therefore, I will refund shipping costs if the difference is $1 or more.

I do reuse shipping supplies; be green for the environment.

I will use USPS Priority mail or USPS First class for international shipping. Please contact me with any concerns prior to purchase and I will see what we can work out. Most international orders reach their destination in about 14 days, but please allow up to 45 days as some countries do take longer.

Please be aware your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes. You are responsible for paying these charges. I mark all international orders as 'merchandise' on customs forms.
