BEHIND THE BRAND
1. a loop of thread or yarn resulting from a single pass or movement of the needle in sewing, knitting, or crocheting.
2. the basic thread that makes up the fabric of our lives.
3. a symbol for some of life’s most enduring values- persistence, commitment, the importance of taking life one step at a time, and of course, love.
My grandmother first taught me to knit when I was a little girl. On that day, she ignited within me a passion for the Stitch. There was such artistry in the knitted fabric we made together- soft materials, rich colors, a joyful sense of satisfaction in handling what we created. And, of course, there was love.
In college, I developed a way to crochet in silver. Lacy crocheted silver reminded me of the love my grandmother poured into me through our knitting lessons. I knew I had to bring that feeling to my designs.
Crocheting in silver was only the beginning for me. As I continue my jewelry work, I aim to fuse texture with materials, and share the creative process with you. Every day, I remind myself of the moment I fell in love with the Stitch.
Thank you for joining me on my journey.
