Thank you for stopping by Protsenka.
It all began when I was a little girl growing up in Russia. I always wanted to stand out of the crowd and have some unique items nobody else had, I learned to crochet at about age 7 and was designing my own clothes and accessories then. I later lost interest in this craft as I got older and got busy with life, college, friends etc. Who has time for crochet when they are a teen? :) I didn't come back to it until much later in my life. I was a nanny and a girl I was caring for started learning to knit and crochet, as I was helping her learn, I myself suddenly felt at home with the craft again; I bought some supplies and started making gifts for the family and friends and myself :)
I also picked up a new addictive hobby/craft - felting and nuno-felting. I have been creating all sorts of fun accessories using these methods. I love how much flexibility wool and other fibers allow me to express my imagination and vision.
When I create my pieces I feel fulfilled, calm and focused. It amazes a lot of my customers, especially those who know how to crochet/felt and can see how much time can go into a project such as my earrings or a felted scarf. I love creating every single piece and I think it shows in the end result!
My many customers at local craft fairs here in Maine often compare my work to tatting (when referring to my crochet work), since I use such small crochet hook the stitches are so fine and intricate. A lot of my earrings are made with single or double thread DMC, which makes it even finer, barely there, lace like!

I get inspired by nature, the works of fellow artisans, my trips back home to Russia and many many other things! I love working with fiber and giving it a new form, I love bright and fun colors, but I never forget the neutrals!
My passion with this business is to create wearable art, that unique item that I always wanted to own since I was a little child; that conversation starter and compliment getter! I want my pieces to make someone's day! I know how the right outfit or accessory can make you feel - empowered, motivated, happy, beautiful! I want my customers to feel that way every day and every time they wear my pieces!

I hope you enjoyed your time in my shop. I hope to see you often and to know more about you - my customer! I also want to thank you for inspiring me to keep creating and for giving me your kind support!
It gives me great joy to create custom orders, so please don't hesitate to ask!

    In love with fiber be it spun or raw. I could crochet, felt and knit day and night if it were up to me! I love unique, bold and one of a kind!
