Coming Soon: The Harris Tweed Wristlet


I'm working on a collection of Harris Tweed Wristlets that will be available in the Pesky Shop Designs shop very soon. Harris Tweed is a luxury cloth that has been handwoven by the islanders on the Isles of Harris, Lewis, Uist and Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, using local wool. I import my supply from a lovely shop located on the Isle of Harris.

The wristlets will be available in a range of tweeds and applique designs. I will also be taking custom orders. They are sized at 8.5" wide, 5.5" tall and 1.5" deep and have ample room for all your essentials. Each wristlet is lined in a pretty cotton floral fabric that coordinates nicely with the tweed. I also lined the inside of the straps with the same fabric so it will feel soft against your wrist. 

If you have been following my blog then you know how fond I am of Harris Tweed. There really isn't anything that comes close to it. You really have to feel and see it to appreciate its beauty!

I love the look of these, and I would love to feel Harris tweed. I know the the British Isles produces some of the most luxurious wool in the world, and Harris Tweed is just that! Beautiful wristlets!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…
