When Deeper Than Fashion first started, it was known as Rainbow’s Doodles. I started off wanting to merely sell some of my handmade creations to raise money for concert tickets my parents didn’t want to fork out for. I’ll forever be grateful they didn’t. I never in my dreams expected it to turn out into what it is today and I can proudly say, all my hard work and dedication to my craft continues to pay off on a daily. Every day I wake up feeling blessed to be able to do what I love.
Taking a walk down memory lane, I can’t believe when I first started, these were my first few pieces; Perler beads or as I like to call them, Pixellettes (because they were pixelated, how incredibly clever of me :3). As creativity would have it, I embarked on a journey of learning new skill sets with brand new ideas and materials. Being a fashion student, I always had buttons lying around. I began to use those to create wearable art. Also, I had a fantastic time experimenting with tassels & fringe jewelry;
After which, I finally found my love for feathers. Lightweight, flowy and free, I created so many designs I’ve lost count. Here are a few of my personal favourites;
Slowly I learnt new tricks with feathers, and I started painting on them;However my most prized and favourite creations will always be… you guessed it, my dreamcatchers; All the wonderful themes I created, all the magic these little pieces of jewelry provided, I can’t even explain how much joy its been to be able to go on this creative journey. The best part, creativity and ideas don’t run out. You can only evolve and become better. I truly believe I have improved over the years & promise to do so in years to come.
& I for one, am excited about it all 🙂 Thank you for being a part of my journey and growth. Here’s to a lifetime of art, happiness, love and dreams.
