As a native Western New Yorker, all my life I’ve combed the beaches along Lake Erie collecting buckets of colored beach glass. I started making jewelry and artwork with the pieces and giving them as gifts. They were always a big hit and people genuinely appreciated their unique pieces.
Using my two knitting machines over the past 25 years, I’ve designed and created hundreds of sweaters and sweater outfits from a picture or a story people tell me – like the story of Amy who fell off her moped on her European vacation…could I design someone falling off a moped and knit a cast on one sleeve? The results can be viewed below.
I graduated summa cum laude from Buffalo State College with a degree in Clinical Dietetics. I worked for over 25 years as a Registered Dietitian before deciding to follow my dream and open One-Of-A-Kind Design. It’s great to finally be doing what I love! Follow my nutrition and fitness blog!
