About TangledStrands

On Etsy since 2010

Creating tangled strands of beauty.

Tangled Strands is about creating beautiful things out of simple materials. I studied art and design in college, and worked in the professional design field for 15 years. As an all-around fibery soul, I have been experimenting with yarn and fabric since childhood, creating beautiful accessories for a wide variety of personalities and styles. I like to play with designs and come up with new ways to use them.

I have been hand creating items to fill custom orders and to give as gifts fairly steadily over the last 10+ years. As such, my work spans a range of styles, textures, and colors to correspond to the range of my customers' tastes and personalities. The Tangled Strands shop is the more formal location for my custom and speculative work. To get a glimpse of my recent creations and ongoing work, visit my blog. Feel free to reach out and request a custom listing to create an item for your special event or gifting needs.

I hope you find something in my shop that strikes a chord with your personality or that of someone you love.

    I'm a self-taught crocheter, knitter, spinner, and all-around stitcher of things. I've been working in yarn and thread for 20+ years and it still makes my toes wiggle with happiness. I like to play with designs and come up with new ways to use them.

Welcome to the Tangled Strands shop! Tangled Strands is a collection of knitting supplies and knit or crochet accessories. All items are hand created and designed by myself. Because they are handmade, each item is unique. My design philosophy incorporates classic lines and styles that remain current through the years.
