Ashdel Handmade [interview, giveaway]

"Ashdel Handmade" is a shop containing unique accessories created by Ashley. She incorporates recycled and vintage textiles into her pieces. From the bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and brooches, to hair picks and hair pins- Ashdel Handmade items are different and stylish. I love the softly romantic flair. Let us find out some more about this shop and its owner from Ashley herself!
What do you like to do for fun, Ashley? 
Concerts/shows, hiking, museums, cooking, and traveling.
bouquet hair pick, limited edition sun kissed collection
Do you have a favorite "thing" in the world?
One of my favorite things is my vintage button collection :) Also, my collection of miniatures which includes carved animals and things that have been handmade for me. One more thing, my vintage greeting card collection!
 
What does your shop, "Ashdel Handmade", consist of?
Jewelry and hair accessories from vintage and recycled textiles: earrings, necklaces, bracelets, bobby pins, hair picks...and more coming soon.
 
When did you begin creating accessories?
Experimenting with different techniques using textiles developed during college. I did a project where I archived my entire wardrobe (photographed, weighed, and documented all items individually). During that process I became more aware of the time, space, and energy that textiles took up in my life, and the life cycle of clothing. After graduating I began experimenting more with textile jewelry making from recycled fabrics. In elementary school my sister and I made friendship bracelets and lanyard key chains and sold them at summer camp.
 
Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in nature, vintage things, NYC and wherever I go. The inspiration for my sun kissed collection came from a dress I discovered in a vintage shop here in NYC. As a kid, I would go exploring in my mom’s walk-in closet (she’s still a clothes horse). Also fun was digging through all the odds and end in her sewing box...vintage clothing tags, thread spools, trims, and buttons! I was and still am inspired by colors, patterns, and textures of textiles from all decades.
 
How does a general day in your life go?
I work pretty long hours during the week at an online education start-up company as a Front-end developer. On the weekends I focus on creating new pieces, photographing, and posting new items. Occasionally on the weekends you can find me selling at the Hester Street Fair alongside my friend Abby (bambako.etsy.com).
 
What is next for you?
I’m working on a new collection...and some larger textile art projects...stay tuned!
 
Is there anything else that you would like to add?
Thank you for featuring me Samy!
