You may know me as the person who puts plastic animals in tiny hand-crocheted sweaters.

My adventure into making jewelry from plastic toys started when I picked up a small red brontosaurus figure hanging around my bedroom and thought to myself, "Wouldn't it be funny if this thing was wearing a long turtleneck sweater?" I scrounged around for the matching red t-rex, crocheted small white sweaters around both of them, and fashioned them into a pair of earrings for myself. I never intended to start a small business, but after wearing my own pair around, people started asking me for more and more options - "Do you do dogs?" "Cats?" "A stegosaurus?" "Do you want the plastic toys from my kid's closet? We were gonna just toss them!" Who knew that such a one-off idea would turn into a fun, kitschy way of recycling a form of plastic that usually gets thrown to the wayside. Now I can say that I'm a full-grown adult with a toy chest that's filled to the brim, and I don't see that changing for a long time!
