I*M*Handmade produces one of a kind handmade items for you and your space. Clothing, accessories, housewares and more all handmade in a Brooklyn apartment. I have been working on custom pieces for over 7 years (moving the sewing machines to Brooklyn 4 years ago) and branching out to become a regular at great Brooklyn boutiques like Urban Alchemist!
" I utilize a lot of found material like driftwood, leaves, bird skulls, Gouda wax (I let nothing go to waste), and other non-traditional materials. I have been creating jewelry for quite some time now and I love every moment of it. I don’t have fancy drills or torches; just some sculpting tools and a multipurpose tool “knife-thing” to get the job done. Like in Native American culture, I try to honor the spirit animal as well as the earth in all of my work. "
Beat Up Creations uses recycled, abused, tossed aside, broken and forgotten items and trun them into fabulous new creations. She claims not to be an artist... but.... (: This is what SHE says: "I strive to be simple. I like small things, dirty art and banjo music. Most of the time I am called Angela. I was born and bred in Los Angeles. My father and my brother are both professional artists. My mother is an expert craftsman. I am not. Having had a broken heart, broken wings, loose marbles and the such I have discovered that I am much better with a glue gun than a paint brush. I just try to be true to the idea's in my head by recycling unloved and forgotten items."
