About

 

Greetings from K.S.Lewis and thanks for stopping in. Really. There are a gazillion places on the web you could be, you chose to come here, and I appreciate it.
All the things on this site are designed and made by me, K.S., an artist in Oakland, Calfornia. 

Beadwork

K.S. Lewis  embroidered beading technique

I do all the beadwork by hand, using a bead embroidery technique whereby the beads are individually sewn onto a piece of fabric to create the design. I then backe the pieces by hand, with either leather or velvet and then add the  jewelry findings.
While I may generally repeat designs, no two pieces are ever alike. Your new piece will be just as unique as you or the person you are gifting it to!

Sparkle Vegan Leather Jewelry and Belts

These pieces are also hand crafted  by me with the help of a sewing machine. I hand cut all the designs myself before stitching them together on my trusty Bernina sewing machine, add the specially selected chain and findings, and finish with a signature Lewis move worthy of an Olympic Gold medal. Ok, maybe not that last part, but you will feel like a real winner wearing these unique pieces!

Inspiration

Inspiration comes in many forms- from past sculptures, like the Bed in Your Head,  dreams, the materials themselves, Mardi Gras costumes, my Grandmother's crafting passions, and a desire to connect with others.
