Announcement   Hi, I’m Jess! When I was younger if I knew I could make money one day for all of the things I love to make I probably would have peed my pants with excitement. Ever since I was a youngster I have been pretty much obsessed with crafts of one form or another.

Flash forward to today, and most weekends you’ll find me bopping around at a local makers market selling my modern bohemian home good items IRL or supporting other makers dreams. I make small batch hand-poured soy candles and funky macrame pieces that I hope you will love.

A little more about my background, I'm a Michigan native with a carefree Californian heart, now living in Southern California. I love nothing more than a relaxing day at the beach. I spend a lot of my time drinking coffee/ beer hanging out with my boyfriend and our dog, Russ! We are constantly dreaming up new ideas for projects and figuring out where the wind might take us next.

We live a pretty carefree lifestyle, try not to stress too much.

I love making things and seem to always have a new project that I am working on, just ask anybody who knows me. If you love to embrace your bohemian side then you have come to the right place.

I hand curate all of my candle scents and design all tapestries. If you would like to have a custom piece made for your beautiful home or next big event I would love to chat, reach out! Or if you have any other questions I love to connect with my clients, feel free to reach out.

Thank you for all of your continued love and support, you make all of this possible for me.

About

The makings of a knot lady and candle maker.

I have always liked to think of myself as the crafty one. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and making pretty little things. Some of my greatest influencers have been my Great Aunt, my mom, my father, and even my time spent in Girl Scouts.
For a while, say 2 or 3 years while growing up you wouldn’t have caught me anywhere without my friendship bracelet making kit. It was my favorite hobby, I made them all the time! At one point I swear I was wearing about 20 of those darn things on each wrist.
For me that obsession faded, but my tendency to want to make things never did, in fact it seemed to grow. It grew into different hobbies through the years, but one thing that most all of my hobbies seemed to have in common- fiber. It always seemed to stem around using some form of yarn, string, or cord to make items.
I like to think of myself as a knot lady.
One of my very favorite people passed away when I was quite young. The thing that I admired most in her was her sense of wonder and seemingly endless artistic talent. She was always making something new- she was a painter, a seamstress, a jewelry maker, you name it. She was a unique lady. A lady to remember. I still have fond memories of all of those vests and dresses that she made for me, everytime I would visit I would come home with a new piece it felt like. In large part this shop is dedicated to her, to all of the things that I wish we could make together and the crafts that I wish she could have taught me.
Another large influence for me to start this shop is my mother. Someone who has always influenced me to pick up a new craft. Whenever we would shop together if I wanted to buy something- a necklace, earrings, or even sometimes coasters she has always been quick to say "Oh Jesse, we could make those." It's funny how those little words that always annoyed you when you were a child, start to come out of your own mouth as we get older. Now I catch myself constantly thinking that, only now instead of thinking I missed out by not getting something, I think of it as a challenge, as inspiration to make the next thing.
When my Great-Aunt passed, we inherited a lot of things. She might have had a small trailer, but she had no lack of treasures inside. I think my mother and I thought of those craft items the same way, like we had found gold. Slowly, as I got older my mom and I started to pick up almost all of the crafts that my Aunt once loved. We started making jewelry with all of her ornate and one-of-a-kind beads. These are some of the most enjoyable memories from growing up, it has been our tie to Aunt Barb.
Then there is my father. He is talented. He is humble. He showed me how to fish at a very early age, one of his all-time favorite hobbies. He enjoys the slow kind of fishing, he enjoys sitting in his boat all day and letting the fish come to him.
Sitting on the water or with a craft in our hand is where my family connects most. Every year growing up I would look forward to those long, hot summer days where we could spend a little extra time out on the water. Soaking up the sun, catching a few fish, and taking in all of the beautiful Michigan summers have to offer.
My father too takes after his Aunt. He is skilled with pen and ink. He can draw with a high attention to detail, then also having the lose strokes it takes to go with the flow of watercolor painting. He is a serial hobbiest, I guess we all are here in this family.
Whether we make jewelry. Or we paint. We all love to work with our hands, I guess you could say it really ties our family together.

I am a lifelong maker.
I am a strong woman.
I am radical.
