I love colors and whatever possible colors can go into a creation. I sell supplies on Etsy and started out with yarns, then moved into silk sari ribbon, silk cocoons, silk sari ribbon yarns, cording and rope. I will recycle saris and rip them into a ribbon and then create by knitting or crocheting it into something wonderful. If I can't find a color I need I will dye it using environmentally safe dyes.
I found a fair trade supplier in India who is now working on ribbons and silk thrum yarns for me. I decided that it would be nice to share this love and supply that I have on Etsy and it has really taken off, leading me to meet other wonderful artists. Sitting at the table, I think back, never in my dreams imagining that I could share this with others and have it grow into a live business as it has.
I make purses, accessories and clothing that are out of the ordinary. When you work with fibers and silk sari ribbon you step outside of the box!
Artist statement: I hope to provide a creative vision, guidance, knowledge, motivation and inspiration to all ages. While heightening passion for fiber art I hope to push the boundaries of silk sari ribbon use and fibers in all applications. I aim to provide joy to those who embrace color and love wearable art. I love recycling, bringing the old into a new creation. Through all of this, I hope to understand what the other person sees and feels through my work.
