But foremost she is a very talented fabric artist, with a strong urge to create beautiful adornments for women who don't like mainstream, but favor the exceptional and extraordinary. In obeying her mind and heart her skilled hands produce adorable bags and pouches and scarves and boleros with perfect workmanship and an immaculate sense of color and texture. She fashions necklaces out of big beads arriving from far away lands, vintage buttons, wood- and ceramic buttons, small stones from the beach, little fabric pieces, small gems like amber and semiprecious stones.
Some months ago she started creating cuffs and it seems she is not able to stop - and certainly she should not, because they are getting more and more gorgeous and sophisticated. She loves to use vintage embroidery, which found its way to her from places like Guatemala, the Middle East, and Bukhara in Uzbekistan. She owns old embroidery made by women from Ethiopia, and by Bedouin women from Israel - and she knows how to turn them into treasures, embellished with fringes, old and new buttons, vintage lace and whatever else suits her fancy! She uses the softest goat leather and batik cotton fabric to its uppermost advantage. She knows how to mix and match with joy and energy - in short: she loves what she does!!!
Needles to say that she is also a very clever and professional photographer, with often her lovely niece being her willing and very talented model!
