I am a graphic designer by day, but when I’m not at work I prefer to be creative in a more hands-on way. I love making things by hand and I try to learn something new every year. It’s exciting for me to turn my hobbies into a small business. I love every aspect from creating, to packaging, to setting up a beautiful display. Currently I make and sell jewelry, soap and candles. Inspired from my love of antiquing and anything old, I make a variety of vintage inspired rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Many components are made from old jewelry I’ve collected and then I take them apart to use the pieces in “new” ways. I buy a lot of antique beads and supplies to use for my jewelry. I make hand-poured soy candles using vintage containers. I love shopping antique stores for fun and unique containers that can be made into a candle. These include vintage jelly jars, juice classes, old tins, Jello molds, child size teacups, Ball canning jars, etc. My candles are all unique and one-of-a-kind. I also make cold-process soaps that are all natural and vegan. They have a luxuriously smooth lather and smell amazing.
