Colorful Fiber Jewelry and Knitted Accessories

She was a wonderful knitter, though hadn't knitted for a long time. I was a restless little girl who loved to make things.

I learnt to knit at the age of 8.

I was visiting my lovely Nannan for the week, and out of boredom, found myself flicking through the knitting patterns in her old woman's weekly magazines. She was a wonderful knitter, though hadn't knitted for a long time. I was a restless little girl who loved to make things. She taught me one day how to make knit stitches out of a little red ball of yarn, and I made my toy rabbit a scarf.

Fast forward 14 years, I am still the same restless little girl who loves to make things. Maybe a little less little! My love for knitting and crochet has grown and grown, and I am now about to start the final year of my fashion knitwear degree. I am still in awe of the way I can make those knit stitches; pulling loops through loops to create beautiful pieces of fabric.

ThreadBEAR is a whimsical fiber jewelry and accessories label. It's the world of my daydreams in the form of crochet collars and knitted bow ties! It is my labour of love. When I started out, I hadn't realised what a big part of my life it would become. Now, I can't wait to get up in the mornings to start my working day! How wonderful to be living out a childhood dream.

I hope that, in my shop, you will find pieces that will inspire you; that recaptures that feeling of wonder and awe and FUN that you had when you were a child. It is my hope that these pieces will bring colour and beauty into your world, even on those grey days.
