The first piece I upcycled was the Nike Sock Heel. I noticed the trend of upcycling Nike socks on Instagram, and so I wanted to hop on it and put my own spin on it. I mainly saw people making items of clothing, so I decided to do something with footwear instead. That’s how that came about.
Another piece I’m probably the proudest of is the Cable Bucket Hat. It was the first cable work where I had no foundation to work with, so creating the shape was a challenge because it depended on the placing of the cables on top of each other and the position of the cable ties, too. So, that one took a lot of brainstorming!
