Purchased as a gift and the scarf is stunning in person. Beautifully crafted with attention to detail, the colors compliment each other perfectly. Very smooth and quick transaction with almost immediate receipt of the item.

About

goldfinch woven

A native of Metro-Detroit, Mary Ballard studied Fine Art at College for Creative Studies and Wayne State University. After working in the fashion and advertising agency for 10 years, Mary became a stay at home mother and began exploring Fiber Arts. With her own young children as inspiration, she began handcrafting felted toys and selling with etsy and local shops as Pip & Olive. Pip & Olive was featured on The Huffington Post among many other well known blogs.
As her children grew, Mary found herself drawn to weaving - an art which had fascinated her since a childhood visit to Cranbrook's weaving studio. Drawn to the intuitive style of Japanese Saori weaving combined with her understanding of color and texture, she threw herself into learning all she could and Goldfinch Woven was born.
Based out of Mary's Metro-Detroit home studio, Goldfinch Woven specializes in one of kind wearable art weaving utilizing the highest quality natural and eco friendly materials.

    My journey began studying Fine Art with a concentration in painting and printmaking at CCS in Detroit. In the past several years I've immersed myself in the world of fiber arts- fascinated by the process and possibilities.
