Skills and Techniques
Crocheting and making quilts using the Tied Quilt as inspiration are my current handmade projects. I crochet when I am taking a break from that. My technique for vintage is finding stuff I think is cool at yard sales, auctions, and sometimes just being at the right place at the right time.

Welcome to Raige Creations!
Introducing Jewelry by Bridget!
Raige is so proud to be carrying original designs of wire wrapped and custom glass jewelry by my favorite jewelry designer - Bridget, who also happens to be my mother-in-law. (but having all of the great things of a mother and none of the bad things about a mother-in-law) She takes stones she finds out in nature, or sometimes at the local shop, and either tumbles them to just right smoothness and shine, or leaves them completely natural so we can enjoy their natural beauty. She then wraps them in her own designs and is offering them for Raige to sell. She also creates wonderful glass tiles that she has made into gorgeous bracelets. We hope to see much more from her after her next trip to Arizona.
Me? I am Rebecca, aka Raige, and began Raige Creations after a thoughtful gift of a crochet hook and yarn for Christmas brought back memories of my late family members creating art and music. My mother knitted and crocheted when I was very little, but her photography was always her passion and soon took her in another direction. My father was always at the piano or organ when he wasn't working. My Grandmother, a piano teacher, used to make clothes and quilts, and I remember cuddling up in the homemade pj's with one of her original tied quilts at her house many a night.
I think creating is a wonderful outlet, and now for me it is all the Raige. I dropped out of the corporate world to begin creating again and take cues from family, kids, friends, colors, the outdoors, history, and great stories. Right now I am concentrating on crocheting for today's world. I crochet fun items that fit into today's lifestyles, with a touch of retro and vintage thrown in. I strive to create and find things people can appreciate and love.
I have recently added Vintage Raige to my shop, and I am loving it! From many years of auctions and estate and yard sales, I am sharing unique and fun vintage items to find them a new home.
I am a mother of 3 creative kids (all teens now) and a wonderfully creative husband. We ALL think Creating is all the Raige! They all help a little with Raige Creations, with either taking pictures, modeling, giving opinions, or giving ideas. And now my mother-in-law is helping too be letting me carry her beautiful jewelry in the shop.
I get very excited when someone asks me to make something special just for them. So please, ask for a custom creation. Thanks for looking! Rebecca
The second quilt I have made. This one was for my husband for the cold northern winters we experienced while living up near Buffalo. He is a flannel lover, so I used old flannel shirts that no longer fit him, in his favorite hues. It is really warm, and he uses it for every nap on the couch.
The Tribal Page Saver. It was my first attempt to make a bookmark, and I loved the tribal feel of it. Apparently so did one of my best customers, because it sold rather quickly once I listed it on etsy. I will be making some oriental ones very soon, in time for holiday gift giving, so keep checking.
The Autumn Harvest Scarf was a custom order for someone very dear to me. She gave me very specific instruction on color, but let me do the rest. I thought her choice of the coffe color brown needed an airy patterned scarf, so found this flower motif to be the perfect blend of airy and full. It was fun to make, and I will be making more but trying different color combinations.
Stages of a Girl - the quilt I made for my daughter for Christmas 2010. I saved her favorite jeans and dresses she grew out of, and collected her favorite fabrics (even one we created a teddy bear with together) and put it together in this quilt. It it a collection of favorite things at different stages of a young lady's life. You can see more pix on my Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/RaigeCreations
