Super cute slouchy hat! Soft and warm quality really is the star here. Love the meaning behind the design
spreading handmade love one stitch at a time
My name is Lucinda Snyder and I am the creative force behind lucends.
I grew up in Texas. I do not have a Texas accent, but Texas is in my soul. I have lived in New York state for 14 years. I went to school for political science. If I knew then what I know now, I would have gone to fashion design school.
I love color. It is what moves me to create. It gently calls my name, ok sometimes it screams my name. I guess you could say it is my muse. It fuels my creative soul. I also love cowboy boots, and a comfortable pair of jeans on a crisp fall day.
I like to take simple shapes and give them a modern feel. There is beauty and freedom in simplicity. In our technology driven world, this is easily forgotten. I want to honor what is simple and pure and good.
I taught myself how to sew. My son Cooper died when he was 3 weeks old, after open heart surgery, and I needed something to calm the storm raging inside my soul, so I borrowed a sewing machine from a friend. Sewing saved me. It became a way to honor Cooper, keep living and slowly stitch my heart back together.
This creative process created a connection to Cooper that I never knew was possible. Every time I stand in front of my sewing machine, I feel him with me, cheering me on. And I am very thankful.
I have a two and a half year old that was born on Valentine’s day 2010. He likes to help me sew. He also likes to rearrange my fabric. I sew while he is at school in the mornings and during nap time. I wish I could stay up late and sew after he goes to bed, but I can not function on little sleep.
I believe wholeheartedly in the handmade process, ensuring that my hands and only my hands work on each lucends product. Each piece of work is made with a great deal of love, time and care. I want my work to help my customers feel an often times intangible emotion, love.
Creating makes me happy. It makes my soul sing. I want my creations to make you smile, to brighten your day, to make you giggle, but most importantly I want you to feel a tremendous amount of love when see them and hold them in your hands.
Owner, Maker, Designer
I like to take simple shapes and forms and give them a modern feel. Color fuels my soul and is the inspiration for each piece. I do not buy fabric in large quantities in order to keep each piece unique.
