About

Without Chaos, there can be no Order

I'm a former Marine who's decided to follow my Artistic side. I love to create things with my hands- handmade beadwork, handmade kumihimo jewelry, hand dyed silk scarves, hand dyed fabrics.

I like to think my artistic side comes from my dad, but he claims that he has no idea where I got it from as he's not artistic at all. So he says, but he is really- I have the items to prove it, and I still believe I get it from him.

There's something in the satisfaction of seeing bits of yarn or piles of beads become a piece of wearable Art. In watching powdered dyes bloom into explosions of color on fabrics and not quite knowing what you'll get sometimes. There's a sense of wonder when you see that idea that lived in your head become a reality in the piece you created.

But I also love to garden, to read, to hike, to work with Akita Rescue, to raise funds for Alzheimer's Research in honor of my late grandfather and late grandmother. I'm my family's resident geneaologist. I do Find A Grave on weekends. I'm a member of both the Daring Bakers & the Daring Cooks. I've worked in landscaping, I was in the Marines, I've worked in a hobby shop, I've worked in HVAC, I went overseas and through it all, I created with my hands.

All that is what goes into my pieces, each one unique, each one lovely in its own way and each one a piece of wearable art created by my hands.

Dante's Spirit is a celebration of the glorious spirit of my beloved Akita. Just as her strong spirit shines forth, so do I hope my Art shines forth as well.

I pride myself on creating unique works of art.

I use the best materials I can get my hands on- handmade yarns- when possible, hand dyed yarns-when possible, handmade buttons/cabs, Delicas, Czech seed beads, genuine semi precious stones, etc.

Certain items are tagged for donation of the proceeds to Alzheimer's Research- this means 100% of the purchase price is donated. I do this in honor of my late Grandfather, whom we lost to the disease.

Other items will be tagged for donations to Akita Rescue- this means 50%-100% of the purchase price will be donated to various Akita Rescues I am active with. To name a few- ARMAC, BEAR, SOS, Rakki-Inu Akita Rescue, ARSF, MARS. I do this in honor of my late Akita, Dante-Inu, my current Rescue Akita, Caena Kamikaze Ryu, and any future Rescue Akitas that may come into my life.

All items created in a smoke-free home. All items and materials stored in pet free area.

Customs fees, taxes, and duties on International orders are the responsibility of the buyer. I cannot and will not replace any orders detained by Customs, due to the OOAK nature of most of my creations.

Additional policies and FAQs
I can do sizing adjustments, within reason.

The cuffs with adjustable clasps via a handmade extension chain( handmade chains only, unfortunately) can be adjusted to a larger size if needed. so if a cuff fits up to an 8" wrist, I may be able to add to the chain to make it larger- say 8.5" to 9" if needed. It depends on the type of chain.
