About

Creating unique accessories; with hooks and needles...

My name is Catherine DeChalus (day-sha-loo). Thank you for stopping by my shop.
I am offering handcrafted original designs, crocheted/knitted accessories & fashion, off loom beaded jewelry, and more.

I have been crocheting since I was twelve years old. After my divorce several years ago, I was struggling financially, trying to re-enter the workforce. I could not afford to buy my daughter and I winter hats, scarves and gloves. The ones we had to wear were pretty tattered after wearing them for several seasons.

I found someone online via classifieds offering yarn that they were giving away free! I made hat, scarf and glove sets for myself and my daughter.

Everywhere we went, we were getting compliments and I received my first order! One day another stranger complimenting my hat set suggested that I sell my creations on etsy. I immediately created my shop, and after a while, I added listings and received my first etsy sale!

I find inspiration in times of the past; art, jewelry, music, etc. My heritage includes being of the Native American decent; the Cherokee, Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes, African American, and Caucasian. My background has peeked my love and discovery of ancient textiles, fashion, art, jewelry and other cultural influences (my heritage includes French, Italian, Irish, South American, West Indies with Jewish - roots) contribute to my artistic nature.

I strive to be like the virtuous woman of Proverbs 31:10-31. I am inspired by the Lord; created in His image to create; creating original designs that can withstand the test of time. Uniquely timeless classics that are fashion forward.

I hope you find something in my shop that you will treasure.

Please enjoy your shopping experience at DayShaLoo.
Warmest regards,
~Cat:}

Thank you for visiting my shop. I hope you are enjoying shopping at DayShaLoo. All of my items are handcrafted. Since the items are handmade, if you order two of the same, they will be very similar in appearance, but not identical. This is particularly the case with my jewelry designs and natural gemstones, shells, pearls, etc. The uniqueness of the natural materials adds to the appeal of the hand crafted original creations.

If you require a different size or color than what is offered, please review the "Request Custom Order" section and send me a message.
