Bur Oak Studio
American Made Since 2010
I come from an amazing family of knitters who all prefer bamboo needles to the old aluminum. A desire to keep sentimental or heirloom needles/hooks led me to cutting them up and repurposing them into fun, lightweight and bright designs.
What makes your business unique?my materials are unusual, recycling items meant for one purpose (knit & crochet) into new things (jewelry, wind chimes...) but recognizable in their new function. When people bring me passed down tools or those with sentimental value I love to make something that is an homage to the person and the projects they created.
