RecycledGrace is taking a short break


Note from shop owner I am taking some time off for the summer - to grieve, to recoup, to be able to come back with some peace (and maybe some fresh ideas too).

Thanks for your interest and patience!

Save the Planet While You Shop

I started my shop because I love to create, and I am passionate about finding ways to respect and save Mother Earth. Whenever possible, my products are made from reclaimed/recycled materials. I just can't justify buying new materials when we already have so much available, wonderful stuff already out there ready to be upcycled.

I have been designing, creating, and selling dress clips on Etsy since 2010. All my dress clip designs are original, and are based on years of trial and error and experimentation to find the most beautiful, durable, and fun designs for you (plus I wear them all the time too!). You can count on me to continue to create new clip designs that meet your needs, last for years, and that are functional and wonderful.

My cat and weenie dog help make all products. :) Your item is NOT gonna arrive covered in hair - it's just an allergy alert for those that need it. :) And believe me, they really are involved in the whole process. My shop/home/office is smoke-free.

I was raised on a farm with all types of animals and garden-/orchard-fresh foods that we canned, froze and pickled each summer/fall. I learned to sew, quilt, knit, crochet and hand embroider because I loved it, and also because everyone I knew did these things.

I make everything by hand in my home with love and care and with generations of creators, farmers, seamstresses, and homemakers behind each product, as I use the skills taught to me by my grandparents and parents. It is my goal to make durable, well-made, high-quality items that you will fall in love with and that will last you for years to come.

Thanks for stopping in! Godspeed.

  • Bella

    Curator, Model

    The crazy, one-eyed, feral cat you see in lots of my shop's photos. God forbid I should try and do something around here without weenie dog or cat help! :) I have offered discounts on some of my items if you take her too. :) Watch out; she bites!

    Curator, Shredder

    Stormy the weenie dog. He loves to go for walks and avoids water on his feet at all costs. :)
