My 3rd purchase from Pierr and once again fantastic. The recipient absolutely loves her hand, and the wonderful packaging, and as always the service was brilliant. Pierr went out of her way to sort out a customs issue at the recipients end in the U.K. and I would highly recommend this shop without hesitation. The items are beautifully made and the customer service is exceptional. Of course I will be back in the future. It's always a pleasure shopping here. x

This is a birthday gift and I know she is going to love it! The butterfly fabric is beautiful! I get to admire it a couple weeks before the birthday, so that is like a bonus. It is well made as all of Pierr's hands are and of course fast delivery!!

About

Give 'Em A HAND. . . Stand!

When I was a kid there was a room in our basement where Dad tossed fabric samples from his interior design business. A huge pile of color and texture. I used to throw myself into the pile and lie very still, imagining myself in perfect camouflage, my skin having become one with those glorious fabrics.

These HAND-Stands came about many years later, after seeing wooden glove makers' hands, then inspired by a friend to try making one with fabric. I couldn't stop at one.

I've been making them for 18 years, using my own hand for the pattern. Each one is stitched on my 1950 Singer Featherweight, stuffed with polyfil, then weighted in the wrist to stand sturdy and delight!

    My 16th Christmas Santa brought me my very own Singer Featherweight. Still stitches like a dream 49 years later.

Refunds and Exchanges
** I want you to be delighted with my product. If possible, please let me know within 48 hours if you are not. I'm willing to accept returns on an individual basis. The buyer is responsible for return shipping. I will refund $ after receiving the piece in its original condition.

** Should the product be damaged on arrival, notify me as soon as you can. You have 7 days from the day your package arrives to contact me with 2 photos (1 of box - 1 of product) for a Refund. **

*** Please look at all listing photos and read details carefully before purchase. All HAND-Stands, CACTUS-Stands and TREE-Stands are soft sculptures with a weighted wrist/trunk of pennies inside a sealed, hard plastic container - designed to stand on a flat, level, stationary surface = dresser, desk, table, shelf, mantelpiece, counter top, or windowsill.

Fingers are reinforced inside with bamboo or bendable wire (I note which one in title listing), for a sturdy display of earrings and rings. Lightweight pins & brooches are best on the palm.

Got heavy bracelets? On PALM TREE-Stands they hang nicely on lower branches. On HAND-Stands they can be stacked like tires, the wrist slipped down inside them for a colorful look. Or place the HAND, CACTUS or TREE on a saucer to collect bracelets, post-earrings, and coins around its base. ***

Thanks for reading!

Wholesale, Consignment, Layaway availability

I do not Wholesale, Consign, or offer Layaway for my products. Each item is made individually by hand. Often one-of-a-kind. They are labor intensive with no mass-production process involved.

Thanks very much for your interest.

Where do you get your hands?

I hand-make them myself. They are fabric soft sculptures. I make each HAND-Stand individually: trace my hand onto fabric; machine stitch two sides together; and stuff fingers and palm with polyester fiberfil. The wrist is solid with a "weight tub" = pennies inside a sealed plastic container - to support the hand so it stands sturdy on a flat, level, stationary surface, like a desk, dresser, mantel, shelf, counter top or windowsill.

Will you use my own fabric?

Yes! I'm happy to use any cotton quilting-weight fabric you send. You pay for shipping it to me, I cut what I need to make the item(s), and return all remaining fabric to you along with your completed order.
