What I Do

I bring together upcycled neckties and other repurposed materials to make an individual expression you can wear or carry as a bag. The pieces are artistic, fun, unique and glamorous. Most of the neckties are silk though some are vintage polyester, cotton, wool, rayon, and sometimes acetate. Other materials I use are pieces of vintage jewelry and trims, antique buttons, repurposed leather and fabric, salvaged belts, and thread (pretty much the only "new" material.) 

There are a lot of discarded or unloved items out there just waiting to be used. Rumpelsilkskin designs are my way to make beautiful wearable art out of materials that already had a useful life and are ready for their next adventure.
