Recycled scarf series - elements

For about a year now, I have been thinking about the ideal scarf. Lightweight, colorful and unique, it must be made from recycled materials. It's fun to design when you have more parameters, don't you think? It forces you to think in ways you might not think otherwise.

Here are all the elements - water, earth, air and fire. Check out my etsy shop for all the details and to get one of your own.

Special thanks to my friend, Zane, for the lovely photo above!

Makers Market 2012 in Traverse City

What a fun event! The weather was crazy - raining one minute, sunny the next. This continued all day long but most everyone just wore a raincoat and kept on shopping. The dress in front was inspired by a tree and of roots growing down. I found some great ideas for gifts and some cool rings made from paper! If you missed it this year, be sure to put Makers Market on your calendar for 2013.
