I’m not a knitter, but I love the look of handspun yarn.

Danika: I love combining quality fibres and found materials to create beautiful, one of a kind yarns. I’m always experimenting to discover new, unexpected color and fiber combinations. I rarely repeat an exact colorway, so everything I make will always be one of a kind.

Rochelle Darrow

I am strongly influenced by the natural world and close up wonders of leaf, insect, plant, pebble and translating my experiences using silversmith techniques.

My name is Rochelle Darrow and I live in Claremont California. I have always been a gardener and plant geek. I, like so many, find inspiration in the natural world and the tiny up close wonders of a leaf or insect. I love to hike with my dogs on moist days when the aromas of the plants are especially strong. When traveling I’m often interested in the geological aspect of the area. The rocks, plants and the landscapes. I have a fascination with rock and pebble that I would like to share with you. Those are my definite likes. Some of my dislikes include; rattlesnakes, bears that come too close or thinking about mountain lions when I’m out alone.

Handmade Independence Day

[hKristin]

Here in the US it’s time to begin gearing up for the 4th of July! What better way to celebrate our independence day than with handmade goodies? Okay, maybe you want to have a barbecue too, but let’s focus on the handmade for now and you can plan your menu later.

I love cuff bracelets and this one, by September House, will look stylish on your wrist on Independence Day and every other day of the year. I adore the folk fabulous look of this bracelet!
