Hip,Knots

Please inquire for direct pricing info.

My current series ranges from necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. All made from found and laser cut materials; mostly vintage and industrial findings. This Hip and Knot series represents pop-culture and in a fun, chic, and meaningful way by mixing media and referencing the past. Festivals, cyclists, and a taste of Art Nouveau are all reminiscent in this line!

The body of work is a combination of both jewelry and apparel designs. All of the designs are made mostly of vintage and repurposed materials mixing media that is locally sourced and found. The dresses and jewelry featured is eclectic and serves both functionally and fashionably. Some of the materials used in this work can be found at your local hardware stores and/or local vintage shops. The pieces are all made by hand. As a designer I attempt to create pieces that incorporate everyday materials with the most luxurious, combining silks and bungee cord, duct tape and sterling silver, for example. I try to create unique designs, for everyday, that are also affordable.

Apparel: T-shirt dresses: Repurposed cotton t-shirts and vintage lace. Maxi dresses: Repurposed vintage and antique silk, cotton, and mixed blends; scarves and domestic materials.

Jewelry: Laser cut duct tape, metal components, vintage beads, glass, chain, charms, and metal; bungee cord, rubber tubing, and electrical connectors.
