jessi taylor: i make a lot of things, but what really gets me going is when i can make a PILE of something… collaged cards, oatmeal cookies, sterling silver rings set with typewriter buttons… then i like to lay them all out and gloat over my hoard!! i hope some of you share my love of piles, and that maybe you have a pile of pretty things already…
everything you see here is handmade, individually, and that means that no two things are ever exactly the same, and nothing is “perfect”. i love that!
Sign me up for one of each of these beauties. I love the texture and color variations.
Smashing bio: i love: color, metal, light, timmy, feathers, poems, secret hide-outs, photography, modern architecture, not-modern architecture, babies, fashion magazines, bare feet, high heeled shoes, camping, talking, not talking, making cakes, eating cakes, aqua, fushcia, gray, snow and enough other things to fill this page and a couple more.
i hate: not much. maybe mushrooms? (nothing personal, mushrooms)
These felt cuffs and rings (yes rings!) are so detailed and intricate. The attention to detail is heartwarming.
bio: The word Waterrose is special to me and my creativity was influenced and inspired by my grandmother. My mother was an embroidery artisan and with patience and love she taught me many of the stitches that you see in my creations. My paternal grandmother was an extraordinary quilter and she spent time with me cutting pieces, sewing and then making a quilt. I was embraced in traditional arts growing up. I collect textiles, vintage and new, to make many of my creations.
With the loving knowledge given to me by these special women I create items that I hope bring joy to your life.

If I had one of these rings, mine would say “Be Her.” But you can have anything you like stamped on yours. For example, your kids names, your anniversary date, the name of your business, or anything else that moves you. By Chris Parry.
