Tears of Joy for Ewe


New shawl pin designs now available on our website some with pearl embellishments. If you’re like me, a shawl pin is a nice way to offset your yarn addiction. Shawl pins also make a nice gift for friends who have the same yarn affliction.

All The Shiny Things Your Mama Warned You About


My grandmother taught me to embroider and crochet when I was 10. This is not a unique story in the fiber community but one of my favorite parts that so many have this story. Through the years, I’ve flirted with crochet and embroidered myself into many happy places. My grandmother’s lessons were the foundation to me becoming an artist/designer.

Fast forward years 30 years and inspired by my mother’s knitting and fiber obsession, I create jewelry to adorn handmade fiber arts garments. I design shawl pins and buttons using the 5,000-year-old lost wax casting process. Each piece is either hand carved out of wax or 3D printed in wax, cast in sterling silver or bronze and hand finished by the artist in Los Angeles.

I would love share my jewels with you! Visit my online store, Porterness Studio, with this 20% off discount code: Indie20

Carrying on with family tradition I too live with a fiber and knitting addiction and do not want to be cured.
