A Bit About Me

I grew up surrounded by artists, designers and craftsmen. My family is made up of painters, photographers, writers, ceramicists... My mother is the insanely talented milliner Deanna DiBene (
As a child I was lucky enough to be exposed to all these different mediums and the joy of creating. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting on my moms big cutting table in her sewing room stitching together scraps of fabric to make strange little outfits for my dolls. Crafting and designing is as necessary for me as breathing. I now, along with running my own business making jewelry and stationary, work for my mom as her assistant designer. I often tease her that she only had me so she could raise the ideal employee. You can see our work together on her web-sight above or in our two Etsy shops: and

Thank you for visiting Star & Thimble! I love what I do and I hope that you do too.
I am a crafter through and through and am never as happy as when I'm making something new. I love to work with high quality materials but I also strongly believe that if something is beautiful it doesn't matter if it's plastic or a diamond. Beauty is beauty!
I hope you enjoy what I've come up with in my constant experimentations!
