Voices in Cloth Quilt Show March 19 and 20, 2016
Craneway Pavillion, Richmond, CA
All Rumpelsilkskin designs are made:
>by me in Humboldt County, California
>from repurposed items
>by thoughtful collection and composition of materials
>to flatter the wearer
>to give a good value to the owner
>to inspire others to reuse materials
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. Besides the ties I also use 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.
