About

Quirky, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted accessories made with recycled, vintage and new material & packaging from a certified San Francisco Green Business!

Five years ago, I was co-counsel in a highly publicized trial, defending a man who was charged with murder for crashing a stolen car into the patrol car of a police officer, immediately killing the officer. Our client had a low IQ and we believed he was pressured into driving by two more sophisticated men who, at the very least, had taken advantage of our client. Our client’s situation seemed truly sad and hopeless, particularly for his mother and four year old son. My own son was nearly the same age as my client’s son, and I also had a younger daughter.

During that time, I was either in trial — or preparing to be in trial on that case — nearly every day for over a year. I didn’t have any way to fix what was broken: I couldn’t help bring back the deceased victim; I couldn’t help to heal the community shocked and devastated by his sudden loss; I couldn’t control the outcome of my client’s dire, hopeless situation; I didn’t feel like I even had control over my own emotional response to each and all of these things, as well as the sadness I felt for missing so much time with my own children and my spouse. But I did have control over one thing: my hot glue gun.

So late at night, after finishing my trial work, I started making my daughter hair accessories for her playtime as a way of connecting to my children while we couldn’t spend time together. Each night, I started creating one-of-a-kind hair accessories from new, vintage and re-purposed/recycled materials. Since then, I have designed and handcrafted hundreds of one of a kind hair clips, hair barrettes, and other accessories, using green, up-cycled, recycled and/or locally sourced materials. I named my business “Made In The Haight” to honor my colorful, creative neighborhood where I live, work and play with my family.

Welcome to Made In The Haight! I am so excited to bring you jewelry and accessories as unique and funky as the Haight itself!

A few words about my one of a kind, handmade pieces:

Each piece I create is one of a kind so it may have a little more "character" than something that is store bought and mass produced. I always do my best to choose high quality components, and I reassemble them with with love and care. But because these are handmade creations that may utilize vintage or recycled items, please be prepared for the occasional lovable imperfections.

Please let me know if you'd like me to gift wrap your purchase for you at no extra charge.

On the other hand, in honor of the trees everywhere, including those here in the Haight -- a place that reinvents, reuses and recycles itself all the time -- I will reuse boxes and recycle packaging, unless you ask me not to do so. Please let me know if this is a problem so we can work out a solution together.
