The devil is in the details

Welcome to our corner of the World Wide Web. It’s all new and shiny and I’m loving being able to offer my stylish one-of-a-kind purses and accessories to the world!

Please pop into my Etsy store to see what happens when an illustrator brings together unique color combinations, exquisite patterns, and fabulous textures to create an eclectic collection of gorgeous handbags and home decor.

For me, it’s all about the details. I create my one-of-a-kind purses with meticulous attention to detail. Upcycling fine silks, the softest wools, and other gorgeous, high-end materials from around the world, I embellish them with hand stitching, beading, felting, and appliqué, amongst other techniques. Each purse is a unique stand-out-in-the-crowd fashion statement, ready to be worn and admired, each pillow, guaranteed to bring a touch of pizzaz and style to your couch, and each piece of jewelry, bold and exclusive.

I love the vintage feel you have with a frame purse. I make them using anything from classic to rustic to quirky fabrics, and then add lots of details for a modern twist. Even my small bags have lots going on!

My jewelry collections feature my own artwork. Each pendant
I create has a Victoriana/ bohemian feel and would look equally great worn with jeans or something a little more dressy

Home decor is a new addition to my decorative family. Throw pillows give an extra finished look to your furnishings. I personally prefer an eclectic mix, just make sure your pillows coordinate well together by choosing complementary colors—pull colors from your walls, a piece of artwork, a rug—and keep them to an odd number for that perfectly mismatched look.
