Cole Hands
We’re two designers with a real passion for handmade items, ranging from jewelry to house wares. We like bold statements, individuality and anything that is a little out of the ordinary. This reflects on the techniques and materials used in our work, all intended to be one of a kind, rather than ‘ready made’. Knitting, crocheting, various dying methods, screen printing, sewing and clay forming are all part of our techniques when creating something new. We use fabrics, leather, polymer clay, wood, wool and anything that has an fresh or urban feel to it. Please read shops policies for further info & feel free to contact us for any questions \suggestions. Stay in touch by clicking LIKE on FB page where we’ll be posting things that inspire us, work processes [from our studio and from other designers] and of course new items and sales. Enjoy, Lesley & Hannah

Handmade Home

knitted shawl

A variety of handcrafted goods are available to enjoy around the house. Soaps and soft furnishings are only the beginning. Knitted goods and polymer clay can add to the uniqueness of your surroundings.

Brenda, at knittedfrenzy, offers shawls, coffee cozies, and cowls, in a variety of yarns in her Etsy shop. I was pleased to find a shawl made of soft acrylic yarn. Most of the shawls that I see are made of wool, which is fantastic if you can wear wool. But I cannot. So finding something warm, and not itchy is always a nice surprise for me.

{ Does it seem kind of quiet around here? I gave the columnists the week off — Yay Spring Break! I hope you enjoy this week even though we’re on a very reduced posting schedule, and we’ll be back to full-strength on Monday. }

From Winter to you

Jenny Karlsson has a great shop full of one of a kind bags and accessories. From the wintery photography, to the carefully selected fabrics, I dare you not to purchase something from her.

thumbBio: I’m a Swedish lass who loves to create things.
I like to laugh and to feel and to find wisdom. I love trees and plants and birds and nature in general.
I have always been making things, and now a days it’s more of a necessity in life for me.
I easily get stuck in shops selling fabrics, yarns and beads. As well as vintage & second hand shops…
I like old things.

Jenny Karlsson Design makes handmade accessories with the aim for ‘feeling before fashion’ and individuality, uniqueness & quality is very important. I make each bag & item from scratch, I never use a pattern, except the ones I keep in my head. :) Each handbag is unique and marked with an embroidered number.

Bags range from $35 – $65, and if you see one you like you’d better grab it, because they’re all one of a kind.
