I wanted to design a barrette for my mother's birthday and this was what Adriana and I came up with. It is a stunning barrette and Adriana went to great lengths to ensure that I was satisfied with the product. I will definitely be purchasing form her again! :)

I saw a barrette which Adriana made several months ago, but which was no longer available. She was so accommodating in sourcing the same yarn again, and then making s few versions until we created what I was after. Absolutely outstanding customer service! Thank you Adriana! :)

I ordered this items as a gift for my mother, who asked for barrettes for Christmas. The shop owner shipped it right away and when I checked up on the status of the order, she quickly replied with information about how to track the package and said it would be arriving that very day! The barrette is BEAUTIFUL, looks just like the photo. Each piece--the felted part and the wooden stick--was wrapped individually and nested into a beautiful red paper box. I would highly recommend purchasing from this shop!!

About

It’s all about color

The need to work with my hands has been my lifelong passion. I remember the pleasure I felt helping my grandmother sew dresses for my dolls or learning my first steps in knitting. Years passed by and curiosity led me to experiment with other techniques. I participated in several crafts workshops and started creating pieces, aiming to do nothing more than fulfill the desire to express myself. I devoted many years to Papier Maché: mirrors, bowls, toys; the list goes on…

Some years ago I made a beaded bracelet and when a friend saw it, she encouraged me to keep doing it as a business which I did successfully. Gradually I started adding other accessories to my inventory such as necklaces, hair barrettes, tote bags… That is how Motu Proprio was born.

I like to experiment with materials and textures, looking for the aesthetic side of each object. I use felt, wool, different kinds of fabrics, wire, beads, leather, orange peel… but I also recycle materials originally used for other purposes, as sweaters, bags or cardboard boxes. Although form and material guide my work, color is the engine that drives my creativity. Color is the momentum behind my work, it’s what really inspires me and allows me to play in an endless search for innovative combinations.

    Even though I have a degree in Business Administration and I work full time as a software consultant, it is in the world of arts and crafts where I found a way to express myself. It is where I am really at ease.
