Announcement   Inspiration is Everywhere!

Handmade treasures of all sorts...mostly the wearable sparkly, finely woven beaded sort, but there's so much more! All of it inspired by nature, folklore, music, and the incredible cast of characters that surrounds me.
Look for fabric and fiber treats, mehndi-inspired artwork, floral crowns and hair adornments, mandalas, and the occasional knitted thing... along with anything else that takes my fancy!

About

Wearable Art for your Inner Gypsy

"I was born in the wagon of a travelling show….”

Okay… not really. But I’ve always wished I was. Wanderlust, a fascination with shiny things, a love of flowing, fringed garments and living just outside of the status quo… I’m either part gypsy or part magpie.

I picked up beadwork for the first time almost 30 years ago. In that time, my artistic travels have taken me through needlework, ceramics, quilting, knitting and crochet, costume design, henna art and so much more…but I always come back to those tiny fragments of glass and stone, color and light.

Every piece in my shop is made by hand, by me. Beads are woven on strong nylon thread, strung on flexible cables, or wrapped with metal wire. Fiber creations are knitted, crocheted and sometimes felted as inspiration strikes and the Muse moves me. Fabric-based works are re/up-cycled whenever possible (or practical), and stitched and/or serged to last for years.

Every artwork is one-of a kind...there may be multiple pieces in a series , but there are never duplicates.

I am a strong believer that we make our own occasions, and that every single day is cause for dressing up and celebrating something.... I’d always rather be overdressed and ready for any occasion that life throws at me! I am deeply fascinated with how we ornament ourselves, and I strive to create pieces that will be favorites...the necklace you reach for over and over again, the earrings that make every day feel special, or the twirly, flouncy skirt that makes you feel like a fairy princess.

    Artist, dancer, glitterbomb. I believe that within each of us is a character that is yearning to come out and play, or a story that we are aching to tell. It is my fondest hope that my creations will help you to tell your unique story.
