I'm working hard on some new designs, and I'm actually trying to find the time to make some things for myself- I know, what a concept! I've been putting a patina on different metal components, and creating what I call "The Secret Attic Treasures" series. When I was little, I was fascinated with old trinkets, and as I got older, old embroidered linens. As I walked through antique stores and thrift stores about 10 years ago, I always wondered why I loved these things so much. Even if I bought them and brought them home, I would just look at them lovingly, but not really be able to do anything with them. Now I have the joy of taking some of the trinkets I find, and joining them with new pieces, and making beautiful 'heirlooms'.
Since I don't have any photos of my own grandparents and great grandparents, I just borrow some ancestors and include them in my work. caio, girls~
