Penelope Designs
Wearable Art for Everyone

I am Penny (Penelope), and I like to call myself a ADD crafter. I learned to knit, crochet and needlepoint at the knee of my Bulgarian grandmother at the age of 8 or 9, and have been doing so ever since! I feel bereft when I don’t have a project going in my hands, and have been known to knit in front of the TV, in the metro, and even at stoplights while driving! I also design and make jewelry, decoupage, and am thinking about learning how to drill sea glass this spring! That’s why Penelope Designs has something for everyone!

I grew up overseas as the daughter of a US Foreign Service Officer, and lived in Korea, India, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Mozambique. The beads and textiles from these countries have influenced me greatly in my work, and I especially love working with sari silk yarn from Nepal, colorful glass beads from India, and recycled paper beads from Africa.

Combining my love of needle arts with beading, I specialize in crocheted wire necklaces. Using different gauges of wire with different kinds of beads, from pearls to glass to semi precious stones, I can achieve completely different looks with each creation.

Several pieces are currently on sale in my shop to make way for spring items. Please check it out!
