I am the owner of iembellish.com. Embellishing is my life!
I have been embellishing for over 10 years and quilting for twenty-eight. Recently I have begun embellishing miniature gardens. Even though my gardens have recently turned into a full time business I still enjoy sewing my fabric creations.
I have designed and embellished hundreds of items and have taught my craft for guilds and conferences in the U.S. and France. I pride myself in delivering heirloom quality to my creations as I hand stitch every embellishment in place with needle and thread.
Each garden is also carefully created using my design skills as well as my horticultural degree to ensure a one of a kind garden.
Most of my embellished artwork is created in my cozy studio located in scenic Upstate New York, however the finishing touches are often done in my home located amongst the vineyards on beautiful Keuka Lake. When I am not in my studio creating , I can usually be found shopping for treasures to add to my "ever- growing stash" of embellishments.
My motto is: " Always keep on hand what you need so it is always there when you need it." I especially find this true when searching in my bins for just the right "treasure" to finish a special order. Friends often ask where I find all my trinkets, and the answer is..... just about everywhere (antique shops, flea markets, thrift stores, auctions, ebay, etc...)
I invite you to explore the website. Be sure to use the " close-up feature". This feature will enable you to see the intricate needlework and hand- beading often included in my creations.
I hope you will regularly view the site to see what is new. I will be adding new miniature gardens, purses, and accessories often so don't forget to bookmark my site.
Thanks for visiting and please remember as holidays and birthdays roll around that Uniquely Embellished items make great gifts.
Special orders are always welcome. These special orders often include personal memorabilia. I work "your" precious momentos into collages of wall art, purses, vests, etc..remember that gardens can also be personalized to reflect your hobbies and interests.
May God bless you richly,
