Little Shiny Things

I’m having such fun working with the recycled goods I’ve designed and am stitching together, as I can incorporate many of the wonderful vintage notions and accoutrements I’ve collected over the years. In addition to sequins and rickrack, I can scour my stash of buttons, beads, baubles, rayon seam binding, and vintage fabrics to find just the perfect embellishment. Since I work in a very improvisational way in both textiles and metal, I never know what I need until I need it, so it’s great to have drawers (and drawers) and bins and packets to search through.
