Boho Accessorizing
June 13, 2013

I will be showing my boho upcycled accessories at “The Gables” in Springfield this weekend…weather permitting, Friday and Saturday. Here are a couple of boho headbands–these two have been sold, but I will have more at the show. (One of a kind, of course :)  AND I will have upcycled bags, cuffs and choker/necklaces.



Bridesmaid Accessories

More Quirkiness

I’m making progress . Here are a couple of necklaces pictured with bags made in the same style of colorful quirkiness.

How it all started…

I love to layer color, pattern and texture. I created this bag using a fusing process. After making many bags, all shapes and sizes (you can see some of them at, I decided to use the same concept to create pieces for hanging.
