Artists' Statement:
TeePearls began when I started noticing an abundance of necklaces made from tee shirt yarn. I liked the idea of recycling tee shirts but I wanted to create my own designs using a different technique from what I had seen exploding in the DIY community. After much experimenting and some humorous failing, I crafted a couple successful styles that I am proud to sell.

While I still continue to incorporate thrifted tees in my work, I decided that selvedge fabric culled from factories brings richer hues and the added perk of an ability to produce more quantities in the same color or pattern. I support businesses that try to make use of this otherwise discarded fabric by purchasing tee shirt yarn from them.
