Whimsy and Miscellany
Artists make weird things. Most of the time it's just to breathe life into the half-dreamed images that flow through my life and brain, but sometimes there's a story, like: "I had this knitter friend who had real trouble finding knitting accessories that wouldn't break on her. Since I'm stupidly hard on my jewelry, I thought 'How hard could this be?' ... and so the artistic leap from wire wrapping jewelry to making fantastic knitting accessories was a small one."
My fan pulls run the gamut - some are mold-cast glass, often using molds I’ve made, and stringers of glass I’ve pulled myself. Others utilize a found object philosophy, incorporating marbles and vintage crystals into the mix. Current fan pulls for sale can be found here.
Polymer Clay Pens
Meet the pen that is too recognizable to go missing from your desk. Every one I make is different, although each one sports a tiny gem of dichroic glass in it. The best part is though, that they aren't "throwaway art", 'cause the guts of it can be replaced by a standard Bic round stic. (They are also fabulous for arthritic hands because they're slightly chunkier than a "normal" pen.) I can't promise there is a rhyme or reason to what falls out of my brain, so please email me for photos of the current selection of pens I have in stock.
Stitch MarkersDurable as heck and made from handmade copper headpins, I have knitters who take my stitch markers to knitting get-togethers to trade. My markers were also a featured product on two knitting podcasts (albeit several years ago). If you're a knitter or have a knitter in your life, they'll not be disappointed with my stitch markers. Current sets for sale can be found here.
