Ordered 2 custom silk wall hangings. Artist was very helpful with suggestions &sent examples for my input/approval. Artist was very communicative and high integrity. When 1 piece needed to be redone she offered to refund my money if I didn't want to wait the additional time. I'm very pleased with my wall hangings!
Old handcrafts brought to beautiful new life.
I am driven to make and sell my items for two reasons. I want to bring beauty into people's lives by what I make and I want to share a connection to the past. Hand painted silk, chainmaille and spinning are all very old crafts. I like to use them to make useful and beautiful modern things.
I started my shop after hearing about etsy at a Satruday Market in McMinnville Oregon I was selling at. I was already creating my hand painted silk items using the serti technique with resist and a paintbrush on silk. I specialize in silk dyeing and hand painting on silk . I love the way the dye flows onto the silk as I paint. So soothing!
Shortly after that, I got into creating one of a kind art yarns. I dye my own rovings (especially the silk ones) and I hand spin them into yarn.
The chainmaille and wire wrapped jewelry I create is pretty much just for fun, although it is also an old craft. That was what piqued my interest in learning it! I like using copper wire for enduring jewelry and aluminum rings with chainmaille techniques.
Hope you enjoy my shop!

My shop got started when I heard about etsy through a Saturday Market I was selling at. I hand design and make everything in my shop. A lot of what I create are one of a kind items. I hand paint on silk, spin art yarn and make chainmaille jewelry.
