This was perfect for my son. He requested a slight alteration to the ribbon design and Jennifer was very quick to respond, was willing to customize/alter it for him and it turned out fantastic. Great seller. Thanks!
celebrating imperfections through design
all of my life, i have been a collector. not in the traditional sense, but more sense that i am always on the lookout for a hidden treasure. maybe, a treasure that others would not view as such.
when walking down a city street, on the beach, in the mountains, desert, or forest... my eyes are often downcast and scanning to see if i can spy a shell, a bit of moss, a rusted piece of metal. when i go to an estate sale, i tend not to see the big items, the so called desirable items .... my eyes are searching for an old cardboard box that i can pick through. a box that might contain a broken figurine, a cache of vintage beads, yardage of vintage wool suiting or a stash of vintage clothing labels in a small box.
i find great joy and pleasure in finding a use for these seemingly imperfect bits and pieces in my designs. when i am able to use the doll head that broke off of a childhood treasure.... and i add it to a tiny bottle i found while treasure hunting in the desert.... such happiness.
or finding a small bit of fabric... too small for much of anything to be made with it, but too beautiful to be disregarded, and incorporating it the design of my one of a kind tote bags.
most of the items in my shop are born in just this way. by me rummaging through my collection of finds, many with imperfections, and creating something unique and beautiful. i like to think that once i have had a go at that rusty spam container i found in the desert, and have added a vintage but broken parakeet figurine... most people will see how these imperfect items can come together and be some else. imperfection re-imagined.
