Even though custom orders take longer to execute, with all the extra communication required and tracking down of specific materials, they are always very rewarding to work on.

Custom orders are always welcome. This personally tailored, beaded peace crane is now on its way to a new home in Australia.

These hand knit crowns are quite time consuming to make up, with so many ends to weave in at the end. They are so adorable on though, that it's more than worth it every time.

Knitz and Pieces

i grew up in a family that was always creative, and valued things that were handmade over ones that were mass produced and store bought.

as a kid, my mom made me, my brother and sister, clothing, dolls, books and toys. she always seemed to be working on something fun and creative at any given moment.

my dad was perpetually taking beautiful pictures with his nikon cameras, and making us all handmade cards for special occasions.

family heirlooms were always cherished and treasured, and given much importance. especially ones that were hand sewn, knit, embroidered, carved or built, by grandparents, great grandparents, aunts, or uncles.

now that i have three children of my own, i can all the more appreciate the time, patience and juggling i now know must have gone into my parents' days of raising me and my siblings while still maintaining a vibrant creative life.

i hope that my love and appreciation of family heritage and tradition will likewise filter down to my three sons. i hope that they too will be inspired by objects that are handmade and unique, as they continue to grow into the people that they are becoming.
