New use, New focus, New intention.

 

I have learned over the years that the best thing about a great outfit is the person in it!

One of a Kind

Each article of clothing is completely unique and like no other. The material used to make these wearable art pieces are deconstructed, reworked,  and woven together in such a way that they become something different. The unwanted and discarded items work together to become a new incarnation of their original selves.

The unique and Wabi Sabi character of the clothing speaks to a individualistic sense of personal style. Shel, as the creatrix, starts out with a vision of what is to come and using the feel of the materials moves them towards their metamorphosis. There are times, when the pieces themselves, have a mind of their own. Even thought there is a flow and a vision of what they will become, they instead, weave themselves into something completely different. These unexpected and fortuitous experiences typically turn out much better than the original plan.

Finding New Purpose

There are times when a complete makeover is the right course of action. Be it an object, an idea, or even a life. The act of turning into something completely different, with a new purpose is energy producing. Using items that are no longer wanted or needed and transforming them into something entirely different is miraculous. It is an mindful Earth conscious act.
