“Welcome to my shop, I am Jess Quinn and this is a collection of my own designs, made by myself, I draw, sculpt, sew and paint. I love using a variety of materials, The collection is fluid, always developing, most items are one of a kind, I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I have enjoyed making them.”

shop crush :: zelma rose

shop crush: zelma rose 1shop crush: zelma roseshop crush: zelma rose 3These cross stitch necklaces by Lisa Anderson Shaffer, the designer of Zelma Rose design are absolutely stunning.

“When I sit down in my studio to design for Zelma Rose, I reference a kaleidoscope of ideas and images. As an artist, I am a hunter and a gatherer. A visual editor, a collector, a cultivator, and a farmer of ideas and design. Sometimes a design will come to fruition in a single afternoon, other times it is the careful cultivation of successes and failures over the span of a year.”

Inspired by quality craftsmanship and storytellers, Lisa comes from a long lineage of seamstresses and carpenters who believe, in her words, that function + quality + artistry = beautiful design. We couldn’t agree more!
