  • About me

    I started crafting with silk florals in the mid-90s, during a bout with insomnia. I accumulated so many wreaths, swags, and arrangements that I had to do something to make more room, so we sold silk florals at craft shows and street fairs for about 10 years. Hence, the name Silkworm, and my lovable Ms Silkworm logo who was created for me by an artist friend.

    When I moved on to other things I could not give her up, so we rebranded as Silkworm Crafts & Collectibles. I have gone from silks, to beading, to wire-wrapping, to crocheting, to rhinestone embellishing, to collecting and selling vintage costume jewelry in the last 15 years, and mixed in vintage collectibles, craft supplies and hand crocheted items for variety. But I have always come back to beading and crocheting as my creative staples.

    I'm a self-proclaimed 'Crafterpreneur'. I keep my designs more simple now, as age and wear & tear have limited my dexterity a bit, but always use quality materials so that even the most basic designs will look special.

    These days, handcrafting is a family affair, as my son has ventured into custom hand-tooled, hand stitched leather accessories. I hope to be offering a larger selection of his creations under the brand "B & R Western Crafts" soon as well. All of our handcrafted items are made in our home studios in the USA, from high quality components and materials. Although we may duplicate some of our more popular items, we do not mass produce our designs, so anything you purchase from Silkworm will be special!

    Customer Service-Excellent. Shipping & packing-Excellent. Products-Exquisite. “Silkworm;” she’s marvelous, heart of gold, honest, compassionate and goes far beyond the call of “duty.” She’s an excellent representation of what a Bonanzle seller should be. People like Silkworm are a sheer delight. I think she is an Angel with Invisible Wings.
