Get to Know

*** GREETINGS! *** For over 30 years, Ida's work has graced the homes, businesses and bodies of 100% satisfied customers throughout northern NJ and NY state. She's done everything from sewing, beading, woodworking, wedding accessories, painted furniture, pottery, porcelain and interiors, painted and embellished clothing to furniture refinishing, graphic art, wreaths and florals, floorcloths, signs and much more and of course, jewelry. Lots of jewelry. She loves working with vintage and antique materials, and works with a large and varied stock of fabrics and trims. CUSTOM WORK: Everything is truly one-of-a-kind (unless you order duplicates specifically), and I'd be happy to work with you to create something special. If I feel for some reason that I'm not able to fulfill your request, I will be honest and tell you this so we can try to find out how to get what you want. I work closely with clients to ensure we have a shared vision before ever finalizing an agreement. I'm a stickler for detail; I ask a lot of questions and invite the same. If you see something in the shop and would like it in a different size, color, etc. or something completely different, just let me know, and I'll be sure to get right back to you to discuss your needs. If you have something that you would like 'reinvented' or refurbished, I can do that for you as well. Do you have a favorite old necklace that is missing some beads, or isn't in style anymore but has great components? Show me what you have, and I'll see what I can do to give it a 'facelift'.
