About Me

Aurora, Ontario, Canada
I am a lover of all things created, history, travel, art and literature. I spend my time with family and friends, working hard and creating things, pretty much in that order. My passion is to make beautiful things to wear, mostly accessories, jewelry, belts, clutches, hair adornments, brooches etc. I create mostly using fabric , fibres, metals, jewels, pins, chain, clips, buttons and more. I have a shop on Etsy.com which I sometimes have a little trouble maintaining depending on the time of year and how busy I am.

The Nature of the Flower is to Bloom

I needed to make something bright and cheery on this winter day in February. Red. Yes red. I found some lovely red satins and a little organza to make a corsage. One of the fabrics was a large check satin hard to see in this picture but so pretty.

A brassy, pink pearled piece to add to the centre along with a piece of faux leather attached to the back with the pin sewn to it. I make these often and sell them on my Etsy store.
Cut out circles of various sizes and singe the edges so they curl up, sew together with nylon thread and glue the backing on with the brooch pin sewn to it.
There you have it. You can wear it on a number of things. A jacket, a hat, a belt, your wrist, even pin it on a handbag or tote.


  1. Pretty!! I love making these flowers =) So easy and cute.

  2. I know, the combinations are endless!!
